  • Dr Christian Frederick Cossart was born on 30 November 1739 in Heerendyke, Holland. His father had returned to Holland from the Isle of Man and stayed there before making extensive tours of the south of France. He was the oldest of five children.2,3
  • He was the son of Heinrich Frederic Cossart and Amalia Faillard.
  • Dr Christian Frederick Cossart attended school in the Unity Schools circa 1755 He then went to Berlin where he studied apothecary and to become a surgeon. On completing his education he travelled to the Moravian settlement in Ireland where he worked as a doctor in the newly formed settlement of Gracehill. His house, built by well known master carpenter and builder Mark Berry, was amongst the first built in the settlement. Built on the corner of the square overlooking the green, the house was occupied by Christian for over 50 years. On his death it was pulled down to accommodate the new Single Bretheren's dwelling.3
  • In 1770 he was a doctor in Moravian Community, Gracehill, County Atrium, Northern Ireland.
  • At the age of 30 years, Dr Christian Frederick Cossart married Ann Gordon, daughter of Alexander Gordon, in 1770 in Dublin, Ireland. Ann was a member of the Dublin Moravian Congregation. Her sister Elizabeth had married William Horne, who along with Cennick had established the Gracehill congregation.3
  • Dr Christian Frederick Cossart died on 21 February 1818 in Gracehill, County Atrium, Northern Ireland, at age 78.4,2
  • He was buried in Moravian Cemetery.2
  • He left a will dated February 1818. "I leave to my dear wife that part of my dwelling used by Lydia Athenlack, to be an asylum for her widowhood, and on her death the capital from the house and my estate in Dublin to be divided into four equal share (or five if my son Henry be living in America) share and share alike. To my son Joseph one feather bed and my wearing apparel. To my daughter Sarah Eagleson my stop watch. To Fred Hasse my eiderdown bed. After my decease, my dwelling, out buildings and offices to be disposed to the proprietors of the settlement according to the agreement. After death, my body is to remain uninterred 4-5 days - particularly if that event is occasioned by apoplexy. I direct that my funeral be frugal - a plain deal coffin.

    Witnessed by Saml Reiehel, Saml Connnor, Jas Lilly."
  • On 22 May 1819 the foundation stone was laid for a new house for the Single Brethren - on the site where the Cossart house had stood for over fifty years.5
  • The following is from and entry in the Gracehill congregational diary on March 23 1810. The diary transcribed by Rosalie White.
    "Lydia Athenlack, a well known inhabitant of Gracehill died. She was born in Dublin in 1737 of respectable and wealthy parents, and married a tradesman there. She heard of Gracehill when visiting relatives in the north, and was received into the congregation in 1783, spending 27 years here. She was altogether an eccentric character and had much trouble with her children - and may maladies. In her latter years, she lived entirely alone, someone attending for a few hours each day. On account of her great bulk she lived upstairs, letting dow from the window a little basket for provisions, and the door key for those she permitted to enter. Notwithstanding her oddities, she showed evidence of great piety, and was removed from her "troublesome house of pilgrimage" in her 73rd year. She bequeathed a sum of money to build and extension to the Widows House."6
