William HERBERT of Cogan Pill

Born: ABT 1523,  Cogan Pill, Glamorganshire, Wales

Died: 1576

Notes: settled at Cogan Pill near Penarth, where he built a house on the manor acquired by his father in 1544. He was probably the William Herbert who was sheriff of Glamorgan in 1551-1552 and four years later he was brought onto the bench. Herbert's recruiting campaign of 1557 led by his uncle William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke, was to prove troublesome for him. In Aug 1558 the sheriff of Glamorgan, William Basset, who had returned Herbert to Parliament, was ordered to arrest him and before the end of the month he was in the Fleet. He was probably the Sheriff of Glamorgan in 1567. Herbert was returned again as knight of the shire to the Parliament of 1572 but died early in 1576, before the 2nd session, and was replaced by his brother-in-law William Mathew.
