Warwick Pioneer
MRS. LYDIA HAWKER
HER DEATH RECORDED
(By "Gooragooby," Dalveen.)
The Press announcement some time back of the death of Mrs. Lydia Hawker, at "Ascot," Inverell, New South Wales, where she had been residing with her daughter (Mrs. Chas.F. Turner) for the past 12 years, reminded the writer of the fact that for many years deceased was a resident of Victoria-street, Warwick.
The late Mrs. Hawker, who had reached the venerable age of 90 years, was predeceased by her husband by over 56 years, his death in December, 1874, being brought about by an accident whilst watering a horse at the Condamine. The animal knocked Hawker down, and in the fall his head came in contact with a stone, and a fracture of the skull resulted in his demise.
A New England newspaper in referring, to the passing of Mrs. Hawker, stated that "the end, though sudden, was not unexpected, as she had been ailing for some time, yet although suffering was always cheerful. She will be sadly missed by all who knew her, as her cheery nature endeared her to all who made her acquaintance. Mrs. Hawker, although so advanced in years, retained her faculties remarkably, and till quite recently could read without the aid of glasses. She was a native of Devonshire, England, and came to Australia at the age of nine, years, settling at Warwick."
Of her family, deceased—predeceased, by a married daughter and a grown-up son-is survived by three sons, one daughter, 25 grand children, 60 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren. Of her sons, Mr. Sam. Hawker, of Mill Hill is the eldest. An old lady friend—possibly the oldest surviving female native of Warwick writes me in the following appreciative terms regarding the deceased: "Do you remember old Mrs. Hawker, who lived in Victoria-street? She was an aunt of John Cox and his sisters, who still live in the old home in The Pocket. Their father (Mr.John Cox, senr.) was Mrs. Hawker's brother and I can remember her as a young woman walking into town past our place and my great ambition then was to be like Miss Cox. She was a very fine old lady, well read and quite conversant with all the leading topics, of the day. It is not many who see ninety descendants."

Judy, would you like us to hunt up Lydia, nee COX?

This looks like the COX family's arrival

New South Wales, Australia, Assisted Immigrant Passenger Lists, 1828-1896
per Fairlie arr 7 August 1848 - all listed as Church of England and all can read and write
Samuel COX, 39, wool sorter, b Alderney
Alice, 45, wife, b Axford, Somerset
William, 16, son, carpenter, b South Molton, Devon
John, 14, son, grocer, b South Molton, Devon

in 1841 census this family was living in Alphington St, parish of St Thomas, Exeter.

The Fairlie arrived into Sydney. These articles give a list of the types of immigrants aboard.

What can I say to you all but a very big thank you.

Whilst I have been asleep you folk in the southern hemisphere have been so busy on my account. It will take a while for me to take it all in but I will add further to this thread soon.

I always wanted a convict. It sounds funny I know. My husband and I met an Australian couple some years ago who were visiting England from Newcastle, NSW, they were so lovely and amusing because they were competing with each other as to whose family had been resident in Australia the longest!

I need to do some more work at this end as I didn't know William Hawker's parentage before today.

Thank you so much Rootchatterers! X
