Pity that book wasn't titled Portarlington 1780-1850 by John Stocks Powell...!  Would have been a great help.  The available records always peter out just at the point you need verification of something...

Many thanks indeed.

Many thanks for that, Jack2227.  I have a cousin in Texas who will be simply delighted at the information there.

I have a DNA link to William Cobbe mentioned here.  However, I have a documentary descendency from a Charles Cobbe c1798-1861.  1798 is crucial, as sadly it is two years before the beginning of these Portarlington and Lea registers.  I would make a reasonable guess that my Charles is the first of that series of baptisms to Charles and Eliz/Ann of Bellegrove.  But I have no documentary link to William of Deerpark, even though that is where the DNA link is.

So close and yet so far.  But this has been most helpful indeed, and I am very grateful.  There are also two more children of William and Grace which we did not so far know of, Th(omas?) and Richard.

Martha COBB (Or perhaps COBBE) was my 3x Great Grandmother, she married Dennis BACON, had a daughter Eliza BACON in Ireland apparently, in 1827. Dennis, Martha and family immigrated to Tasmania. 

I have DNA connections to COBBE

1 is a descendant of Elizabeth COBBE who was married to Christopher COX,
Born about 1813 death registered Mountmellick 1883.

The other is a descendant of Charles BACON and his wife Ann MAJOR through daughter Eliza born 1827, who died in Victoria Australia 1874.
Eliza COBBE was married to Walter PATTERSON, 1849 marriage registered Mountmellick. 
These matches are also shared matches and at least one matches a match I know is a match through daughter of Dennis BACON and Martha COBBE.

Wondering if perhaps My Martha COBBE was a sibling of Charles COBBE and Elizabeth COBBE perhaps?   
Martha was born about 1800. 

I  can't find record of marriage for Martha and Dennis, nor can I find their baptisms or baptisms of their children born in Ireland. 

Children of Dennis BACON and Martha COBBE born Ireland were

Eliza 1827
Anne 1829
Maria 1830

Margaret was born at sea 1833

The rest of the children were born in Tasmania

Eleanor 1835
Dennis 1837
James 1840
Charles 1842

Dennis, Martha's husband also had a brother John BACON.

Some say Martha was from Cornwall, I have never seen any proof of this.
