  • by Douglas Wilkie ([CV on author site, UniMelb profile)
  • 2nd edition published by Historia Incognita, Jul 2009.
    • Originally published 2009
    • Third edition being prepared
  • Description:
    • Between the time of their marriage in 1818 and 1846 Samuel Cosstick and Mary Weller had thirteen children. They were living at Croydon, Surrey - then a small town south of London.
    • As their children grew up social conditions in England worsened and news arrived of wonderful new opportunities in the colonies of Australia.
    • Many took the chance and travelled half way around the world to start a new life. For those who had doubts the announcement of gold discoveries in the Port Philip district during the early 1850s was hard to resist.
    • Six of the Cosstick sons and one daughter decided to go to Australia during the 1850s.
    • Henry and William made a respectable living both looking for gold and servicing the needs of other goldseekers.
    • John tried his luck in New Zealand for several years before returning to Victoria.
    • Charles also went to New Zealand and then to Canada.
    • George and Sam, especially Sam, left the gold for others and played cricket instead.
    • This is the story of the Cossticks.
