  • Notes 
    • Sheriff of Essex, 1391. Knight of the shire for Essex 1391, January 1397, 1401, 1402, October 1404, 1411, April 1414, 1420, December 1421 and 1422. Justice of the Peace for Essex from 1401-7, 1417–19 and 1422-26. In 1381 he was one of the commissioners appointed to suppress the Peasants' Revolt.

      "[Sir John Hawkwood] also had a daughter, Antiocha or Mary, who by March 1379 was married to Sir William Coggeshall, apparently the cousin of Sir Thomas, afterwards of Codham Hall, Essex, then in Hawkwood's service in Italy and residing in Milan." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, article about Sir John Hawkwood.]

      "In the summer of 1404 came his opportunity to prove his allegiance to Henry IV by the zeal with which he helped suppress disaffection and incipient rebellion in Essex fomented by the plots of Maud, dowager countess of Oxford, and the heads of certain religious houses, who had spread rumours that Richard II was still alive. Coggeshall acted swiftly in arresting conspirators and holding inquiries into their treasons. He was re-appointed sheriff later in the year, and for his good service he was subsequently exonerated from payment of half of the arrears of £200 owing on his account." [History of Parliament\
