You are right about it being a large family. My gt gt grandfather George had at least 14
children - there may well have been others.
The baptisms of Thomas and Sarah's children are quite late, but there is no hard and
fast rule. Louisa is one that I did not know about. However Pope Hill gels with the 1861
entry I have now found for Sarah and her son James. Ancestry have transcribed the name as
Condino and FMP as Carridis!!.

I expect you have realised by now that this is a very large extended family from Freystrop
who moved between Freystrop, Johnston and Llangwm as the coal seams developed.
George, Thomas, Moses and William appear many times in every generation so they are very
difficult to sort into families. I transcribed the Cozens/Cousins from the Freystrop and
Johnston parish registers some time ago, but they arrived at the records office in poor
condition with some pages completely unreadable.
So far I have found 2 points which may be useful,
Johnston 12/04/1834 Thomas Cozens of this parish married Sarah Jinkins/ Jenkins of this
parish, both signed their names, the witnesses were John Cozens and William Saunders.
Johnston 23/05/1852 George son of Thomas and Sarah Cozens of Pope Hill, collier was
baptised. Two other Cozen cousins were baptised at the same time.
Thomas and Sarah had other children baptised in Johnston, Louisa on Dec 6 1835 and Esther
on May 16th 1852.
I was unable to find anything else in my notes that might be useful to you. There were
Jinkins in Freystrop but they don't feature in my notes.
