PHILLIPS FAMILY - John & Ann (nee Cock)

Journal by amber27

This is a little information that I found on Richard and John Phillips, sons of John Phillips & Ann Cock (my 5th-great-grandparents).

Richard PHILLIPS was born in 1825, in Bodmin Cornwall.
After emigrating with his family to New Zealand aboard the William Bryan, he later moved to Ballarat, Australia, to work as a gold miner. He relocated c.1851. He married Elizabeth Jane PINCOTT (Australian-born) in 1855. Richard died on 06 June 1869, in Springhill, VIC, Australia.

John PHILLIPS was born in 1832, in Bodmin. Not much is known of his life in New Zealand (if anyone in the family has any information I'd be interested to read it!) but he died in 1900 in Mahakipawa, Marlborough. Apparently he died of exposure after a fishing trip.

Still have no information on the whereabouts of Ann Phillips Snr and her second husband, Arthur DAWE. It has been suggested that they may have emigrated as far as the United States or Canada as no records seem to exist for them in New Zealand, Australia or England. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack. According to the Climo Chronicles, Ann was still living in Taranaki when her daughter Jane & husband James Climo returned in the 1880's. Whether she was still living at the time of her daughter's death in 1884, we don't know.

Any clues??

I have been researching my family tree for over a year now & have a lot of information regarding the Climo's. So I am hoping to connect with any descendants of James and Jane as well as descendants of my 3rd-great-grandfather's family, the Popes. His name was George Whiting Pope. And lastly, I am trying to find information on my 2nd-great-grandmother's family, the Cotton's, who lived in Nelson. I have found some information which I am happy to share here and am ever hopeful that I may connect with descendants of this family also.

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:
