Thanks - does this mean that the PM I sent to Gms51 will not be received by them?

Yes.    It is to stop spammers.  Though having said that I see he does have the message icon showing so you may be lucky.

If you are happy for your post to be seen by all then you reply on the topic as you have just done.   If the answer involves living people or more sensitive information then you can send a message to the poster by clicking on the letter icon under their user name on the left of the post.  That is completely private.  There is also a "My Messages" button on the brown toolbar at the top of the page.

I am also looking for the Cook family who arrived in WA on the "Rockingham".  I am not sure how old these posts are because I've just joined this site, and have come to a dead end on other sites.  With regard to Mrs Cook, she is probably still at Clarence, as not all of the bodies were moved to Fremantle, and according to the resources at the State Library, Mary Ann could be there too as there were other Cooks that died there. It would be lovely to find them after such a horrible start to their new life.

Hi Dianne

Welcome to Rootschat :D

Could you give a few more details please - eg names, dates of birth and what year your Cook family left the UK?

Certainly.  Henry Cook 1780, children: Thomas George 1815/16, William 1817, Henry 1819, Phillip 1826, Eliza 1828, Mary Ann 1830.  Mrs Cook name unknown.  Thomas' obituary said he came from Sussex, and Phillip's from Brighton. That is all that is known about this family prior to coming to Western Australia.
They left England as part of the Thomas Peel project on the "Rockingham" in 1830.

Hello Diane

I've had another look but even after more than 3yrs with more records available online I can't find anymore about this family. I'll have a further look.
Mackaa who started this thread hasn't been around since Oct but will hopefully come back.
