Unusual surname Foden - centered around a small area:

Presumably it is pronounced Forden, hence the later addition of the r.

They are in the 1871 census as Foder on Ancestry. (with some more children)

In 1861 William and Selina must be recently married (they have no children with them). Surname is Foden.

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
