Notes for William COBB:

THE COBBS IN EAST STOKE, DORSET

As can be seen from the extracts from the Accounts of the Overseers of the Poor 1803 - 1825, the name COBB featured very prominently throughout most of the period covered by these records. From the Parish Registers it would seem that our COBB family was the only one in East Stoke at this time and presumably, therefore, all the references relate to our ancestors. 

In 1802 William and Margaret were still living in their house, assessed for rates in 1802 and 1803 at 2d. William would have been about 43 years old and probably Margaret was of a similar age.   At this date at least some of their children would have still been at home.  John (age 21), William (age 18), Betty (age 15) and David (age14) could have found accommodation elsewhere but Abigail (10) and Samuel (6) would surely be still living with their parents.  William’s mother, Elizabeth COBB née HARRIS was buried in the parish church in 1805, so it could be that she also lived with William.  Or it might have been her home in which the family lived as in 1803 the Overseers were unable to obtain payment of rates from Widow COBB.

William was obviously having trouble finding enough money to provide for his dependants, a problem caused on several occasions through his poor health which originally lasted at least two years.  From July 1802 to the 29th April 1804 the Overseers paid either William or his wife about 1/-d a week.  Although he appears to have been able to manage for a couple of months his troubles began again in June of that year, then his daughter was  ill early in the following year, followed by the death of his mother in February 1805.  There followed an "extraordinary" payment from the Overseers.

In 1804 the Overseers had paid out more than they collected, and a similar situation was to arise the following year.  On the 30th March 1805, the same year in which Elizabeth COBB died,  the decision was taken by the Overseers to build a Poor House.  Throughout 1805 Billy, and later Edward, TIZARD were paid 2/-d a week "for washing COBB’s family".  Was this because they were too ill to do it themselves?  Although only in his forties William continued to be ill and received regular payments from the Overseers throughout 1806.   It could be that his family moved to the Poorhouse at this time as there are no further entries for William or his wife.  He died in the Poorhouse and was buried in St Mary the Virgin, East Stoke on the 12th May 1811 as a Poorman. 

It would seem, therefore, that William was really destitute.  However, his wife, Margaret, made a Will seven months later.  She was then living in Stockford in East Stoke and had a "cottage, orchard and garden" which she left to Elizabeth CHICK her mother, then after her death to Samuel COBB her son, and then after his death to Abigail COBB her daughter.  Although she died in 1812 it could be that there was a dispute over the Will as it was not proved until 1819.

By this time the three eldest sons of William and Margaret were married, John and William probably moving to Bere Regis soon after the death of their mother.  Following his first marriage in 1810 in Wareham, most of the major events in the life of the third son, David, took place in East Stoke.  However, although he lived until his 78th year it would seem that for the years of the Overseers accounts at least he was frequently ill and in need of their assistance.  Three years after his marriage to Elizabeth HARVEY, on the 27th December 1813, he received his first payment.

 He probably recovered towards the end of January 1814, but from November 1815 there were regular payments of differing amounts.   On several occasions such payments were for the rent for his house (which amounted to £2.  0s.  0d in a full year).  He also received money to buy thatching tools in December 1817, but by February 1818 was again receiving money from the Overseers due to his illness.  During 1819, at times, he was the only parishioner listed in the accounts.  In June 1819 the Overseers tried a different method of helping David; they paid him for cutting turf.  However, by the November they were paying him 1/6d daily.

It is possible that by March 1820, both his health and his employment prospects improved but in July 1821 he is again receiving payments and by October of that year he was out of work.  Payments stopped in March 1822, but a bad foot was the reason for them to be resumed later in the year.  He obviously recovered his health in 1823, but again in 1824 he was  depending on the payments made by the Overseers.

By this time he had five children, with another son by his first wife to be born in 1826,  the year after the Accounts end.  His first wife died in 1837 and it would seem that David left East Stoke sometime after that for in 1841 his children, Martha, Alice and Charles, aged 20, 18 and 15 respectively, were living in Stokeford without their father, or their older brother, David.  (Where were the two Davids at the time of the 1841 Census?) Both Davids eventually returned to East Stoke.   David the elder’s health probably improved as he married his second wife in East Stoke in the September of 1841. He still depended on the parish for in the year 1840 to 1841 he received 8s 10d for coke and coal He died in East Stoke in 1866 and was buried at the parish church on the 2nd December 1866

Notes for Margrett or Margret CHEECK or CHICK:

Mother - Elizabeth CHICK died Age 85 years buried 22nd January 1818 St Mary the Virgin, East Stoke, Dorset.  The Will of Margaret COBB was not proved until 1819 which was after the death of Elizabeth CHICK who had been left Margaret’s cottage or dwelling house, orchard and garden in Stockford, East Stoke, Dorset.  Were Samuel and Abigail, the executors, waiting for Elizabeth’s death before having the Will proved?  Why were the other children not remembered in the Will?

 

This is the last will and testament of me Margaret COBB of Stockford within the parish of East Stoke in the County of Dorset widow as follows (that is to say) I give and devise All that my cottage or dwellinghouse in which I now reside with the orchard and garden thereunto adjoining and belonging situate at Stockford aforesaid unto my Mother Elizabeth CHICK for and during the term of her natural life and from and after her decease I give and devise the same cottage or dwellinghouse orchard and garden with the appurtenances unto my son Samuel COBB for and during the term of his natural life.  And from and after his decease I give and devise the same cottage or dwellinghouse orchard and garden with the appurtenances unto my daughter Abigail COBB for and during the term of her natural life.  Also I give unto my said daughter All my wearing apparel And all the residue of my estate and effects I give unto my said son Samuel and Daughter Abigail equally between them as tenants in common and not as joint Tenants and I appoint them my said son and daughter to be joint Executors of this my Will  In witness whereof I have hereto set my hand and seal this sixth day of December in the year of our Lord Christ one thousand eight hundred and eleven

DAVID COBB

Although David COBB lived until his 78th year it would seem that for the years of the Overseers accounts at least he was frequently ill and in need of their assistance.  Three years after his marriage to Elizabeth HARVEY, on the 27th December 1813, he received his first payment.

 He probably recovered towards the end of January 1814, but from November 1815 there were regular payments of differing amounts.   On several occasions such payments were for the rent for his house (which amounted to £2.  0s.  0d in a full year).  He also received money to buy thatching tools in December 1817, but by February 1818 was again receiving money from the Overseers due to his illness.  During 1819, at times, he was the only parishioner listed in the accounts.  In June 1819 the Overseers tried a different method of helping David; they paid him for cutting turf.  However, by the November they were paying him 1/6d daily.

By this time he had five children, with another son by his first wife to be born in 1826,  the year after the Accounts end.  His first wife died in 1837 and it would seem that David left East Stoke sometime after that for in 1841 his children, Martha, Alice and Charles, aged 20, 18 and 15 respectively, were living in Stokeford without their father, or their older brother, David.  (Where were the two Davids at the time of the 1841 Census?)

SAMUEL COBB AND FAMILY

Samuel COBB was born and baptised in the village of East Stoke, Dorset in 1796, the youngest child of William and Margaret.  William died in 1811 and during the last ten years of his life at least, before Samuel was of an age to be earning his living,  the family suffered much hardship.  However, with the death of his mother in 1812, although only 16 years old, Samuel, and his sister Abigail,  probably thought their troubles were over as they, together with their grandmother, Elizabeth CHICK, were the beneficiaries named in Margaret’s Will.  The Will could, however, have been challenged, perhaps by William, John and David, brothers to Samuel, as it was not proved until 1819 for less than £100. Or perhaps Samuel and Abigail did not have the Will proved until after the death of their grandmother in 1818.  In 1819 Samuel had a Cottage and Enclosure rated at £2. 3s. 0d on which his assessment was 8/6d.  He still lived in the property in 1821 but the owner was a Mr Bond.

In the same year, Samuel married Elizabeth Arabella BROWN in the Church of St Mary the Virgin in East Stoke.  They moved to Blandford where their first two children were born, returning to East Stoke before the  arrival of their third child in 1826. Three other children were born before 1835 when at 32 years of age, Elizabeth Arabella died.  His children were aged from 2 to 14 years but within six months Samuel had married again, to Jane CHAMP.  Amos COBB described his step-mother as being “very kind”.

For some reason, on the night of the first census in 1841, the family were not all living together.  On that night, as  Thirza, the eldest daughter, had died in 1836,  Amos at 17 was the oldest in the family.  He, together with his brother Arthur, sister Eliza and his 3 year old step sister,  Abigail, were living in Creech, whilst Samuel and Jane with their own daughter, Mary Anne, together with Elizabeth and Jane by his first wife, were in Stokeford. 

Several events occured during the next ten years.  A son Samuel was born in 1842, dying two years later.  Three months after his burial another Samuel was baptised, followed by Thirza (1846) and Charles John (1849).  In that year Arthur married Elizabeth MARSH, and Elizabeth married her cousin David COBB.

It would appear that over the years Samuel was able to rent several plots of land.  On the 13th September 1847 he had made an agreement with a William GOODWIN to rent a cottage, ‘tenement’, garden, fuelhouse, together with a piece of ground and a field, then both arable, called Home Close and Poor Close, the latter including the withy bed, all amounting to about four acres and situated in Highwood, in the parish of East Stoke, Dorset.  The rent was £10 a year and in addition Samuel had to pay any rates which came due on the property.  He was allowed £3. 12s. 2d. in the first two years for repairs which were the responsibility of the previous tentant, but thereafter he had to keep the property in “good tenantable repair” and “manage the land in a proper husbandlike manner”.  The agreement was for seven years but then, in the Spring of 1851 Samuel died at the age of 54. Nevertheless, it could be that by this time he was renting several other plots of land.  Six years before his death, at the time of the Tithe Apportionment in 1845, a Samuel COBB rented Arable land from Elizabeth ANGEL for 2s 5d.  At the same date David BARNES rented a Garden, 2 Arable plots and Rough-Furze to a Samuel COBB for a total of 9s 2d.  It is also possible that Samuel still had his original holding rented for 1s 8d from the Reverend Nathaniel BOND who was the largest landowner in the Parish of East Stoke. 

Samuel was employed in several occupations during his life, Labourer, Brickmaker, Brickburner, Tradesman, Farmer and Builder.  Directories show him as a Shopkeeper in 1848, and a Grocer and Dealer in 1851, but his will refers to him as Brickmaker and Farmer.  In this document he appears to have little confidence in the future behaviour of his wife, Jane, and following his death his affairs were to be organised by his friend, John HOBBS and the sons by his first wife, Amos and Arthur COBB.  Amos went to America, while Arthur spent the rest of his life in Creech, Church Knowle, Dorset. 

 

Your Oath is that the within named Samuel Cobb died on or about the twenty eighth day of February One Thousand Eight Hundred and fifty one.  That the writing hereunto annexed contains his true last will and testament (with codicil hereto annexed) as far as you know or believe.  That you are the joint Executors named in the said will and codicil and that you will truly perform the same by paying  first his debts and then the legacies contained in the said will and codicil as far as the goods chattels and credits will thereto extend and the Law  requires that you will make a true and perfect inventory of all the said goods chattels and credits and exhibit the same into the Register of the Court of the Archdeacon of Dorset at the time assigned you by the said Court and render a just account hereon when thereto lawfully required.  And lastly that the contents of the annexed affidavit to which you have subscribed your names were and are true

In 1857 a John COBB is shown in East Stoke, Dorset as a Brickmaker.  Samuel COBB the Brickmaker in East Stoke,  was the Uncle of this John.  Was John working with his uncle in 1857?

 

It is possible that this John COBB died in the March quarter 1886 aged 77 and that his cousins, John COBB (son of John and Susannah GRANT) born 1808 was the John COBB who died in the March quarter 1892 age 86.

 

"       1841-1871 they both are shown with ages which are roundabout what you would expect given their baptism dates.

"       1881 - they have both added two years...both were widowers...since the previous census this John's mother had died, and John

                the John born 1808's wife had died...perhaps they really didn't remember when they were born

"       The 1886 death was for a John age 77

"       In 1886 this John would have been about 76, the other John would have been about 78.  So the death could have been for either

                of them!

"       1891 - John (which ever one) - is shown as 86...This John would have been 81 and the other would have been 83.  Again...neither

                matches!

"       The 1892 death was for a John age 86

"       In 1892 this John would have been 82 and the other would have been 84.  Neither would have been 86

 

Decision

84 is nearer to 86....so perhaps the 1892 death is for the other John

Which means the 1891 address is for him as well and needs to be deleted from here...but I am not convinced about that because of the birth place on the 1891 census is shown as Church Knowle and that matches the information we have for this John.

1851        Bugg Barrow, Bere Regis, Dorset

1861        5 Tower Hill, Bere Regis, Dorset

1871        2 Barrow Hill, Bere Regis, Dorset

1881        Tower Hill, Bere Regis, Dorset as a widower Age 75 (was actually 73)

                Living with him was his son Mark with his wife Arabella and their two children

 

In 1857 a John COBB is shown in East Stoke, Dorset as a Brickmaker.  Samuel COBB, the Brickmaker in East Stoke, was the Uncle of this John.  Was this John the Brickmaker in 1857?

 

It is possible that this John COBB died in the March quarter 1892 age 86 and that his cousin, John COBB (son of John and Jane HOBBS) born 1810 was the John COBB who died in the March quarter 1886 age 77

 

"       1841-1871 they both are shown with ages which are roundabout what you would expect given their baptism dates.

"       1881 - they have both added two years...both were widowers...since the previous census this John's wife had died, and

                the John born 1810's mother had died...perhaps they really didn't remember when they were born

"       The 1886 death was for a John age 77

"       In 1886 the other John would have been about 76, the this John would have been about 78.  So the death could have been for

                either of them!

"       1891 - John (which ever one) - is shown as 86...The other John would have been 81 and this one would have been 83. 

                Again...neither matches!

"       The 1892 death was for a John age 86

"       In 1892 the other John would have been 82 and this one would have been 84.  Neither would have been 86

 

Decision

84 is nearer to 86....so perhaps the 1892 death is for this John

Which means the 1891 address is for him as well and needs to be added from the other John...but I am not convinced about that because of the birth place on the 1891 census is shown as Church Knowle and that matches the information we have for the other John.

Notes for Elizabeth DAY:

IGI baptism,

John TERRY found, when searching for details for Elizabet's son Richard, that the parents of a Dorothy DAY who was a sister of Ezercier DAY was a William and Dorothy DAY, but this Dorothy DAY was the only one baptised in Bere Regis.  John then searched for Elizabeth born around 1811 in Dorset and I found these baptisms with William and Dorothy as parents. So I assume it is the same family.

So from this we now have the rest of the DAY family and perhaps the person that brought James up was indeed Isaachar as shown by the 1851 Census and not Ezercier as we have been told - the IGI shows the following:

Reuben DAY baptised 15th March 1810 Wesleyan Chapel Lane High Street, Poole, Dorset

Shadrack DAY baptised 18th July 1813 Wesleyan Chapel Lane High Street, Poole, Dorset

Isaachar DAY baptised 10th April Wesleyan Chapel Lane High Street, Poole, Dorset

Mariah DAY baptised 15th July 1818 Wesleyan Chapel Lane High Street, Poole, Dorset

Caroline DAY baptised 15th December 1821 Wesleyan Chapel Lane High Street, Poole, Dorset

1871        54 West Street, Bere Regis, Dorset.

                Servant to Louisa SCUTT (38) widow born Iverne, Dorset and her family of 8 sons, 1

                daughter and a mother-in-law.  There was also a nurse and a housemaid

 

1881        The Mary Jane COBB who married in 1873 in the Wimbourne District, Dorset appears to

                have married an Alfred BROWN as there is an Alfred and Mary Jane BROWN living in

                Ruislip, Middlesex in 1881.  However, the birth place of Mary Jane is shown as Wimbourne,

                Dorset, so perhaps the 1873 marriage does not belong to this Mary Jane COBB.  No Mary

                Jane BROWN born 1846 Dorset was found on the 1891 or 1901 census so no furtner

                information is available.

Notes for Jane COBB:

The birth and death dates were sent to us by Roger HAWKINS. 

We looked for the place of birth on ancestry.com and FreeBMD in 1875 with no success.

There was a Jane COBB born September quarter 1873 in the Wareham District, Dorset who died there in the same quarter age 0.  If it had been the June quarter we would have thought that perhaps we had entered the wrong year, but a death on 17th May, and registered at the earliest on the 1st July does seem too long a time lapse.

                and mother born in Germany

 

Amos COBB’s house was rated at £3. 0s. 0d in 1863 but by 1866 his house and land were rated at £13.10s. 0d.  The rates he had to pay increased betweem 1863 and 1869 from 2d to 1/8d.  But there was a note “not paid” in 1869.

 

Amos COBB, born in Blandford, Dorset in 1824,  was the second child and first son of Samuel and Elizabeth Arabella (née BROWN) COBB. His mother died in February 1835, and Samuel married again in the September to Jane (or Sara) CHAMP.  Amos remembered her as being very kind to her step-children, of which there were soon only five as the oldest daughter, Thirza died in 1836 aged only fourteen.  Samuel was involved in the manufacture of bricks and left his business to his two sons, Amos and Arthur, at his death in 1851. 

 

It is possible that Amos was lodging in Coombe Keynes in 1851 with a Cornelius BROWN and his wife Margret although this Amos gave his age as only twenty four years.  Perhaps Amos made out he was younger than he really was because by this time he had already met Harriet BRAND who was only sixteen.  Although her family did not approve, the marriage, or rather marriages, took place in East Lulworth in 1852.  Due to the differences in religion they were married both in the Parish Church of St Andrew, and then in the Roman Catholic Chapel of St Mary in the Castle grounds. 

 

Amos’s early occupation was in agriculture, but in 1851 with the death of his father he had the opportunity to be involved in brickmaking. In 1852 he was living at the Brick Kilns in Coombe Keynes and after their wedding took his bride back to a completely furnished home, which, said his sister, only lacked a coal scuttle.  In the early years of their marriage Amos and Harriet, together with their growing family, lived in Coombe Keynes and East Lulworth. In 1860 and 1861 they were living in Wool before moving back to Coombe Keynes between 1862 to 1869 and then to West Lulworth by 1871.  It is said that Amos moved to West Lulworth as he believed the area was going to be developed and his goods would be in demand.  He established a crockery plant on the coast.   Apparently, he was "prospering when a disastrous tidal wave completely washed away the business".  (Or maybe it was a storm and record high tides in the Channel).

 

In 1869 Eliza BALSON née COBB, the sister of Amos, had emigrated to the United Stated with her husband and family.  She was living in Savannah, Missouri, wrote home of all the advantages of her new life, and eventually persuaded her brother to join her.  Mildred Ralph HARTLEY wrote:

"It must have required a lot of faith and courage to start on this journey to establish a new home! But in 1872 Amos COBB accepted the challenge".

 

So, Amos moved his family to a comfortable well-furnished, but smaller home, and in March 1872 he sailed from Liverpool on the SS Brooklyn to America along with, 938 other passengers, with the idea that if all went well for him he would send for his wife and eleven children.  He arrived in New York on the 1st April 1872

 

On his arrival in his new country Amos COBB, through a misunderstanding, went to Beford in Iowa instead of Beford, Indiana where there was good brick making to be done.  He worked as a farm hand for a year and then moved to Andrew County Missouri where his sister lived.  There he bought a farm about one and a half miles northeast of Savannah where the clay was suitable for brick making.  There was also suitable rock which could be quarried.  Amos worked hard, using the bricks and stone to build, amongst other places, Andrew County’s first court house and school  His neighbour was John J Holt who helped Amos build a house.  Within two years he was able to send for his wife and family.

 

There were many references to Amos COBB  in local newspapers  His "new lime kiln", his  “brick business, and “the large quantity of good brick and lime” he was hoping to make in the summer of 1877 were all mentioned.  Besides these activities the family also went into the ice business.  Ice was cut during the winter from a nearby river and stored for sale during the following summer.  In addition he farmed on the land he had bought.  They had a cow called "Old Crump" which Edward was meant to milk, but Alice usually ended up with that job.  They had a spring on their property, they raised hogs and grew vegetables so there was always plenty to eat.  As Amos prospered he was able to add more land to his holding, increasing the size to 130 acres.

 

Amos was said to be a kindly man, honest, hardworking and devoted to his wife and family. Another family member said he was quiet, kind, scrupulously honest and liked fair dealing, "a simple, kindly man who loved his family devotedly".   His neighbours liked and respected him.  He liked a card game, but never gambled.  In his earlier life he was “built like a bull, but later he was thin, and looked stern with a long beard.  He was blue eyed and of fair complexion.   He was a good farmer, a  good builder and a hard worker.   He was also literate and a good penman, writing letters to his sister Jane who emigrated to Australia.   It would appear that Amos completed a "Declaration of Intention" to become a citizen of the United States, but it would also appear that he did not go further than declaring his intent.

 

Amos died on the 16th May 1894 and is buried in Savannah Cemetery along with his wife, Harriet Brand COBB and many of their thirteen children.

Amos COBB met Harriet BRAND when she was only sixteen.  Harriet lived a very short distance from Coombe Keynes in Park Lodge on the Lulworth Castle estate where her uncle was employed in a responsible position.   Her family were not happy about the relationship as there were so many differences between the couple, besides their ages. Harriet BRAND was small, quick and vivacious, an extremely good needlewoman (who was later kept busy making clothes for her many children), and a Catholic.  Born in Basingstoke, Hampshire, one of seven children,  she was orphaned at seven when she was taken into the home of her Uncle, Henry BRAND and his wife. (In East Lulworth in 1851 there was a Henry BRAND, Baker).  Harriet was educated in private schools using money left by her parents and was "reared to be a lady, which she was to her dying day". However, the marriage, or rather marriages, took place in East Lulworth in 1852.  Due to the differences in religion they were married both in the Parish Church of St Andrew, and then in the Roman Catholic Chapel of St Mary in the Castle grounds. 

 

By1872 Amos COBB had decided to emigrate.  He left his family in England but within two years was able to send for them.

 

Harriet must have found the travelling extremely difficult but as she was a "very loyal wife and mother", she was prepared to make the journey to start a new life with her husband.  The eldest daughter travelling with her was eighteen years old but the youngest child was only three and there were three others under ten. They left England from Southampton.   Instead of the usual two thousand on the ship, the SS Hecla,  there were only eight hundred passengers, but Harriet did not approve of the accomodation provided, and arrangements were made for Harriet, her daughters, and the youngest boy to use some of the officers’ quarters.  The ladies suffered seasickness because of the storms which accompanied the crossing, so the boys in steerage were able to get up to mischief, although kindly passengers and crew helped look after the younger children.

 

Harriet COBB and nine of her eleven children arrived in Boston Harbour on the 9th February 1874 and in Savannah on the 14th of that month,  the two older girls travelling at a later date.  Amos  was not sure when they would arrive.  He had been told that no more trains were expected that day so had left the station and there was, therefore no one to meet the travellers.  However, someone looked after them all, and sent to Amos to let him know they had arrived.  Harriet and the children were offered a wagon in which to ride to their new home and on the way they saw Amos coming towards them.  The excited  family arrived to find their home was a three roomed log cabin, and then, the next day, it snowed.  In the months ahead,  with the help of his sons  additional rooms were added to the cabin, and then in 1876 or 1877 a new brick and stone house was built with the help of the HOLT family next door.    It was furnished with second hand furniture and Harriet made rag carpets for the floor.  After going to America,  Amos and Harriet had two more children, Alice and Minnie.  As the older children married it was a custom for the bride and groom to use the old log cabin home which came to be known as the "Weaning House".  The log cabin disappeared in the 1930s as it fell into disrepair.  The COBBs lived in their brick and stone house until after the death of Amos in 1894.  Harriet then lived in Savannah from 1894 until her death in 1928.  Today the home Amos built is on the National Historic Register.

 

Harriet had "personality", she was said to be "vivacious and quicktempered,  both extravagant and generous".  She was petite, proud and a firm believer that blood was thicker than water.  Her family were very important to her and she considered her children and grandchildren the "almost perfect ones".   Harriet was not used to living the life of a pioneer.  In England, she had "Old Stokely" to help her wash, iron, cook and clean so she had to make many adjustments to life in America. 

 

It is said that the COBB name commanded respect.  All the family were very active in the Mt Vernon Baptist Church and later a number of them were charter members of the First Baptist Church in Savannah.

Notes for Mary Wesley BALSON:

John and Mary have the same reference number so presumably they were twins.  We were not given any information about Mary so it is assumed that she died before the family left England.  However, no entry can be found in the Death Indexes.  Perhaps she died in the voyage.

Notes for Alice Mary BALSON:

This was the only other BALSON entry in the birth register in the Poole District, Dorset.  As Alice Mary died before the family left England it has been assumed that this was another child belonging to Charles and Eliza.

OBITUARY - Miss Minnie Hiscock

In the passing of Miss Minnie Hiscock, whose death occurred at her residence on August 29 (1941) at the age of 82 years, the district has lost a well known and highly respected pioneer.  Miss Hiscock was the eldest daughter of the late Mr and Mr s James Hiscock, of The Elms, Lower Crawford.  Born at Hotspur where she spent her childhood, she moved with her parents to Lower Crawford where they took up land and lived there until 1917.  She then returned to Hotspur where she made her home .  During her long life her hospitality was widely known throughout the district.  In her younger days Miss Hiscock was a good horsewoman, and rode many miles to attend balls and social functions.  On one occasion at the age of seven years, accomp anied by her father, she rode on horse-back from Hotspur to Birregurra taking only three days to do the trip.

Miss Hiscock was predeceased by her two sisters Eliza and Augusta (Mrs A Campbell)

A nephew and niece Jim and Jean are left to mourne the loss of a devoted aunt.  After a service at the home, the funeral which was largely represented by friends of the deceased left for the Hotspur Cemetery, where Rev Mr Robins (Church of England , Heywood), read the burial service
