Pigot's Directory for Somerset - 1821

The population of Somerset in 1821 according to a census held in that year was 355,314 persons. Below are some who were named Cox or Cock and recorded by Pigot & Co. in their lists of Merchants, Professional Persons, and Tradesmen. Some variations are also included.

These places are the only ones from where these names have been recorded:

Axbridge-Bath-Bridgwater-Bruton-Castle Cary-Chard-Crewkerne-Dulverton-Dunster-Frome-Glastonbury-Ilchester-Ilminster-Milborne Port-Milverton-Minehead-Pensford-South Petherton-Shepton Mallett-Somerseton-Taunton-Wellington-Wells-Wincanton-Wiveliscombe-Yeovil

The reason why these only were chosen is probably that they were the main coaching stages from where other minor routes emanated.
