Email bounced, Webpage Thomas Peacock, a cobbler, was born in Margherfelt, County Derry, Ireland on 27th October 1814 and married Joanna there. I believe that William Peacock (born 1771) was also a cobbler in that district. Thomas and Joanna Peacock and family sailed from Liverpool on the "Argyle" in 1841, and came to Australia, settling in the Port Phillip Settlement (now known as the State of Victoria). They had large families in those days - Joanna had fourteen children, and one of them, (Henry Childerhus Peacock - known as "Flash Harry") had 21 children spread over two wives!

Educated at Edinburgh High School, he joined an American timber ship but deserted to join an East Indiaman, becoming third officer in 1838.
