If William Forden and Selina Cotton are Jacobs parents then Jacob was one of 8 children.

Selina Cotton is rather confusing but there is a marriage of a William Foden to Selina Elizabeth Neill  in Dec Qtr 1857  7b 728 which may be the correct one   

I think Selina was born  pre her parents marriage and registered as Selina Cotton with no mothers maiden name in 1839 then is listed in 1841 in Ockbrook, Derbyshire as Elizabeth Neale with James and Eizabeth Neale nee Cotton. Then is 1851  as Selina Cotton - stepdaughter? of her grandparents Joseph and Jane Ufton

William and Selina's first child, Mary H Forden was born 1862 Borrowash, Derbyshire. Familysearch again, caution!

hi everybody

what i know

i have a newspaper report dated 16 nov 1910 showing a marriage of forden and cole in 1901!!!!!
i have plenty of info after 1901 in the name forden which all ties in what i know
its the dates prior to that
have not found a jacob forden on the shipping lists into fremantle but some of the other names which you all have suggested will be a great start
great work everybody

Kay found their immigration at reply #13 and #14. Unless the other children came at different times, they must have left a few behind. Looking on the censuses there are a lot of children but I didn't think to count them.
