Hello,

NSW marriage 471/1861 HANCOCK JOHN M. - MOGG ELIZABETH - SYDNEY

NSW Death 10408/1889 HANCOCK JOHN M - PETER - DIED WINDSOR - WINDSOR

I don't know how accurate that 'Peter' bit is.

Funerals.
THE FRIENDS of the late Mr. JOHN MILL HANCOCK are respectfully invited to attend his Funeral, to move from his late residence, Woodlands, Mulgrave, near Windsor, THIS (Wednesday) AFTERNOON.

Windsor and Richmond Gazette (NSW : 1888-1954) - Saturday 7 December 1889 p.4
DEATH OF MR. J. M. HANCOCK.-On Tuesday last, a much-esteemed and very old resident of this district. Mr. John Mills Hancock, breathed his last at his late residence near Mulgrave. For a long time Mr. Hancock had been ailing, and during his latter years he suffered a deal from sickness. He had many friends throughout the district. He was an old member of the Masonic fraternity, and on Wednesday, when the funeral took place, the members of the Richard Coley Lodge, in regalia, preceded the hearse. There was a large attendance of district and town residents. Mr. T. Collison conducted the funeral, and it is needless to say that he carried out every arrangement in a perfect and most satisfactory manner. The deceased gentleman was 71 years of age.

I don't know how accurate the 'John & Harriet' bit is either.

Grave Details
Name: Elizabeth Hancock
Died: 8th April 1897
Age:
Cemetery: St Matthews Anglican Cemetery, Windsor
Location: Right section, row 1 plot 7

Information from the birth certificate of the first born in NSW - John is a Publican from Devon and Elizabeth is from Somerset.

MOGG Elizabeth 25 'Fitzjames' 1858 Sydney and/or Newcastle Reel 2138, [4/4795]; Reel 2477, [4/4974]
Arrived 28 Jul 1858 - Elizabeth 25 Gen. House Servt. Somerset CofE Read & write

So we have:

Eliza/Elizabeth MOGG born abt 1830-1833 Somerset - parents possibly John & Harriet.

I can't find a parents marriage or a birth/baptism that fits for John or Elizabeth.

John Mill HANCOCK b. abt 1818 Devon - father possibly Peter - arrived in Australia ???


Regards,

Dave
