Person NameCotton; family; of Madingley Hall and Landwade; Baronets Cotton
ActivityBoth branches of the Cotton family which held lands in Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire were significant landed gentry in the counties. They each administered large estates spread out across the counties. Both branches also produced many politicians, with several Cottons being elected as MPs as well as representatives from the family serving as JPs, High Sheriffs of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire, Deputy Lieutenants of Cambridgeshire and various other local offices. A scion of the family founded one of the most notable libraries in the British Isles, which was used by parliamentarians for decades as a source of reference, and the collection of Sir Robert Bruce Cotton, 1st Baronet (1571-1631) bears his name to this day as a significant store of knowledge at the British Library. Other members of the family served militarily, with Sir Charles Cotton, 5th Baronet (c.1753-1812) commanding both the Mediterranean and Channel Fleets during the Napoleonic Wars. The family had strong Jacobite connections, with Sir John Hynde Cotton, 3rd Baronet of Madingley (c.1683-1752) being not only the head of the Tory party in the Commons during the 1740s but also in contact with the Stuart cause and being sounded out for advice on invasion plans. The final two Baronets Cotton of Conington were avowed Jacobites who spent time in exile in France and the 6th Baronet may have been part of the abortive Jacobite invasion from Dunkirk in 1744.
RelationshipsThe Conington branch of the family was distantly descended from the Bruce Royal House of Scotland, hence the adoption of the Bruce name by the 1st Baronet, in an effort to curry favour with the new ruler, the Scottish James VI and I.
The Conington Branch of the family were succeeded in most of their lands by the Heathcote Family.
The Landwade branch of the family acquired their seat at Madingley through the marriage of the 1st Baronet and Jane Hinde, hence the "Hinde Cotton" surname adopted by the 3rd and 4th Baronets.
