From on Sunday, 26 September, 2010

Hello Elizabeth,
I am researching my GG Grandfather and I believe that your relative Joseph Broadstock and my GG Grandfather a John Vockins were acquaintances.
A Joseph and Mary Broadstock were witnesses to my GG Grandfather’s marriage to Maryanne Crane on the 7th March 1848 at Holy Trinity Church Adelaide.
Prior to living in SA I think our relatives established their friendship either in Van Diemans Land as convicts or in Victoria where they both lived at Collingwood or at Western Port where they both owned/leased land.
My GG Grandfather was transported to VDL in 1831, pardoned in 1836 and made his way to Victoria in the late 1830’s. I have yet to find him on a shipping list. Between 1840 and 1847 he owned and leased land around the Western Port area.ds There was at one stage around 1840 a “Vockins Station” of about 6000 acres. In 1847 John Vockins was listed as living at Albert St Collingwood and by 1848 it was known that he was living in Adelaide. Again I have not been able to find him on a ship to Adelaide, but would not be surprised if he had travelled overland.
Whether they moved around together or one followed the other I do not know but it seems a co incidence that they have followed the same path and their names appear listed in the same places around the same time.
I found Joseph Broadstock and John Vockings listed on an 1868 petition to divide the Yatala District Council into two parts. Joseph was recommended to be one of the first councilors for the District of North Yatala.
I have also been in touch today with a Brenton Broadstock with the same information for him.
I hope you find this of interest.
Regards, Helen Boodnikoff (nee Vockins)
