BP1934 starts with Sir John Coghill of Coghill Hall & Drumcondra, identifying him as "seventh in descent" from the following John. Walker starts with Thomas (m. Mary Slingsby) and finishes with a John, 6th in from that Thomas.
John Cockhill (sic) of Cockhill & Knaresborough, Yorkshire (a 1399) presumed father of ...
1. Thomas Coghill of Coghill Hall, Knaresborough
  m. Mary or Margery Slingsby (dau of John Slingsby of Scriven)
  A. Thomas Coghill
  m. Agnes Nettleton of Nettleton
  i. Marmaduke Coghill 'of Knaresborough'
  m. Maude Pulleyne (dau of John Pulleyne)
  a. Thomas Coghill of Knaresborough
m. Isabel Valentine
  (1) Thomas Coghill of Knaresborough (a 1616)
  m. Beatrix Hawley (dau of William Hawley of York)
  (A) John Coghill of London, 'of Coghill Hall'
  m. Lucy Tankard (bpt 23.06.1606, dau of Charles Tankard of Wixley)
Walker ends with their son John. We presume that this was the following John who is the first mentioned by BP1934.
  (i) Sir John Coghill of Coghill Hall & Drumcondra (co. Dublin) (d 1699)
  m. Hesther Cramer (dau of Tobias Cramer of Ballyfoil)
  (a) Marmaduke Coghill (d unm 09.03.1738, Chancellor of the Exchequer, judge)
(b) James Coghill (d 04.09.1734)

  ((1)) Hester Coghill (d 28.07.1789)
  m1. (13.10.1737) Charles Moore, Earl of Charleville (dsp 17.02.1764)
  m2. Sir John Mayne, later Coghill, Bart of Richings (dsp 14.11.1785, Major)
  (c) Hester Coghill
  m. (15.11.1700) Oliver Cramer of Ballyfoile
  One of their grandsons inherited Coghill and assumed the name Coghill.
  (B) Thomas Coghill of London
  (C) Isabell Coghill
  m. William Mann of Thorpe Underwood
  (2)+ other issue - John, Isabell
  b. John Coghill of London (a 1616)
  The following connection is presumptuous but it is not unlikely that this was the John of London who is the first mentioned in Visitation (Oxfordshire, 1634, Coghill of Bletchington) which provides the following.
m. Susan Vyele (dau of Dennis Vyele)
  (1) Henry Coghill
  m. Faith Sutton (dau/coheir of John Sutton of Aldenham)
  (A)+ issue - Henry, Thomas (bpt 10.07.1625), John (bpt 06.07.1637), Elizabeth, Faith (bpt 30.09.1626)
  (2) Sir Thomas Coghill of Blechington (aka Bletchingham), Sheriff of Oxfordshire (bur 06.06.1659)
  m. Elizabeth Sutton (dau/coheir of John Sutton of Aldenham)
  Visitation ends with the next generation, showing the children born by 1634. However, the Harleian editor has listed some baptism & burial dates which add Faith & Maria just below (and Thomas, John & Faith just above). Although she is normally identified as dau of Sir John Coghill of Bletchingham, the dates indicate that the Faith just below was possibly the wife of Sir Christopher Wren.
  (A) Faith Coghill (bpt 24.03.1636, d 03.09.1675)
  m. (07.12.1669) Sir Christopher Wren (b 20.10.1632, d 25.02.1723, architect)
