Capt R W Cook Letters at Post Office Jan 1847
Cecil Cooke wed Arbella Winter (1821–92) had been an orphan for three years, when she was 12 years old and two of her brothers, Samuel and Trevor, left Ireland to seek their fortunes in Van Diemen’s Land in 1833. As she grew up, she remained certain that her future lay with them. After convincing her guardian of her commonsense and earnest desire to join her brothers, she left Ireland at the age of eighteen with her oldest brother, George. A whirlwind shipboard romance saw her arrive in Van Diemen’s Land an engaged woman, to be married two days after the couple left the ship. In 1839, however, Van Diemen’s Land offered few prospects for an ambitious colonist, for the good grazing lands had been taken up long since. With her new husband, Cecil Pybus Cooke (1813–95), Arbella crossed Bass Strait and set off into the relative wilderness of the Wimmera District.
