I have quite a bit on the 'Cobcrofts'
The Dubbo Liberal and Macquarie Advocate, Tuesday 1 September 1925
One of the oldest of Dubbo residents passed away at a private hospital a little before midnight on Saturday in the person of Robert Holl, aged 88.
The late Mr. Holl was born in England on March 6th, 1837, and came to Australia when he was 15 years of age on one of the old-time clipper ships, called the Gipsy Queen. In Sydney he was taught the trade of saddler and collar maker by an uncle, and then had a small business of his own for a while in the city. A brother who was coming out to join him, bringing goods that belonged to them, took his passage on the ill-fated Dunbar, and was drowned. From Sydney Mr. Holl went to Penrith, and pursued his trade, and from there, having the misfortune to be flooded out, he moved to South Creek, where he knew the late Mr. John Lees, formerly a blacksmith in Dubbo. From South Creek he went on to Bowenfels, and from there to Bathurst, where he had a considerable business in the trade, and in hotels, being the licensee first of the Bushmen's Inn, and then of the Albion
Hotel. Later he took a farm at Eschol, and a roadside hotel in the old coaching days. Finally, he came to Dubbo in 1876, or 49 years ago. Here he opened a saddler's shop and took the Royal Oak Hotel, in the old premises of which he lived for the 36 remaining years of his life. His wife predeceased him by 32 years.
Mr. Holl leaves a family of ten children, two sons and eight daughters. The sons are Thomas, of Swansea, Newcastle, and John, of Sydney; and the daughters Mrs. Heggie (Concord West), Mrs. James Cale (Nyngan), Mrs. H. Cleary (Tamworth),
Mrs. George Buist, Mrs. G. Cobcroft (Sydney), Mrs. J. Giddy (Goulburn), and Mrs. J. Simons (Manly).
Mr. Holl was a quiet, unassuming old gentleman, greatly cared for by a wide circle of friends. He was naturally a mine of anecdote concerning the early days of the "Colony." At one time in Sydney, he used often to say, he had carted and sold water for domestic purposes from Brickfield Hill, where Anthony Horden's enormous emporium now stands. Mr. Holl was a very old member of the M.U.,I.O.O.F., joining the Bathurst lodge in 1871 and the Dubbo lodge in 1876.
The funeral, which took place yesterday afternoon, was largely attended, the remains being laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the cemetery. The Rev. C. W. Leavers officiated at the graveside, and the funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. J. R. Tighe.

Robert James Jnr. He was known as 'Bob the Bookie,' which is what he was. He died in 1909. I don't know what happened to Randolph.
