Deborah belonged to a well-established line of Cockins who live in Doncaster to this day. She was one of six who attended Ackworth School, having been preceded by John in 1790, Mary in 1792, Ann in 1794, Joseph in 1797, Richard in 1801. Deborah, herself, was a scholar at Ackworth School from 1805-1808. The Cockins appear in the principal list of inhabitants in Doncaster at that time as Victuallers, Breeches Makers and Sadlers.
