Elizabeth was the daughter of William & Phillis Thompson. On September 10, 1615 in Westbury Leigh, Wiltshire, England, she married John Cogswell Sr. To this union twelve children were born: Elizabeth, Mary, Willimus/William, John Jr, Phyllis, Hannah, Esther, Edward, Alice, Ruth, Abigail, & Sarah.

She immigrated 23 May 1635 with her husband and seven children on the “Angel Gabriel” arriving 15 Aug 1635. The 250-ton galleon Angel Gabriel was wrecked in a fierce hurricane one day after her arrival from Bristol, England. Many of the vessel's immigrants to the new world had come ashore at the small Pemaquid settlement before the storm struck, but several crew members and passengers still aboard the ship perished. The surviving passengers eventually departed Pemaquid for towns in northeastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.

Elizabeth is buried next to her husband John, who died November 29, 1669.
