- POSSIBLY 'SARAH COOK' - born 1 Sep, 1793, Ravenstone, father William Cook, mother Martha?
BIOGRAPHY: Came to Launceston 1841 on the 'Ullswater' with their 8 children (mentioned in Launceston Advertiser (5/8/1841) and Cornwall Chronicle (7/8/1841)). Last name was noted as 'Cock' in some places, 'Cook' in others. From http://www.thecorys.com/sayer/d11052.htm - Elizabeth Medwin must have been a resourceful woman: once when bushrangers Bradley and Connor called, planning revenge on William for having replaced Bradley services with the more reliable ones of a ticket-of-leave man, Elizabeth calmly tied up 60 pounds in her skirts, keeping 2 pounds visible. Since William was not at home, the bushrangers took food and the two pounds and went away, leaving the bulk of the family savings safe in Elizabeth's skirts.
