1560s, of uncertain origin; perhaps from French cousiner “cheat on pretext of being a cousin;” or from Middle English cosyn “fraud, trickery” (mid-15c.), which is perhaps related to Old French coçon “dealer, merchant, trader,” from Latin cocionem “horse dealer.” Related: Cozened; cozening; cozenage.
