  • Prefix  Lt-Gen 
    Birth  20 Jan 1680 
    • from: Henry Fielding: A Life By Martin C. Battestin, Ruthe R. Battestin, 1989, p. 626-7, footnote 28 states "Cross mistakenly Fielding's grandmother as "Bridget, daughter of Scipio Cockayne (or Cokayne), a Somerser "squire" (History, I.13). No record of John's marriage has been found. It is certain, however, that his wife's name was Dorothy Cockayne, andprobable that she was the daughter of Scipio and Dorothy Cockayne residing at Wendy-cum-Shingay, Cambridgeshire, only a few miles distant from Cockayne Hatley, Bedfordshire, which had been the principal seat of the family since as early as 1417.

      That her name was Dorothy we know both from the parish registers of Puddletown, Dorset, which identify her as the mother of Dorothy (20 Dec. 1677) and Edmund Fielding (20 Dec. 1679/80)...

When he remarried a year later, he attempted to regain custody of his children, but a lengthy law-suit led to a settlement in 1722 which granted Lady Gould the custody of her grandchildren.
