Every name listed here is linked to the particular historical source in which it appears, but we cannot claim that these are all the historical names of Great Cowden, or that our references are to the first usage of the names. Similarly, we have tried to ensure that names included here are not transcription errors by ourselves, but it is possible they are the result of errors made when the historical sources were printed, or the result of visiting authors or census officials mis-hearing local names.
