    1. [CORNWALL-AUSTRALIA] JOHN WATERS HOSKING

    3. Dear all I am seeking information on the HOSKING/HOSKEN FAMILY in Cornwall. John Water Hosking and Jane ELLIS are reported to have come to Australia on the "Time and Truth" no record with their names can be found on the shipping register. The ship left Plymouth on Sept 17th 1852 and arrived in Geelong on Jan 5th 1853. The 1851 UK Census shows them as living with Jane's parents in Sancreed John aged 23 and Jane aged 21. I believe his parents are also on the same page. It seems that on arrival in Australia John and Jane changed their name to HOSKING from HOSKEN. The 1841 UK Census shows the Ellis family in Saint Just. Have not at this stage confirmed this. Any information would be greatly appreciated. The Hosking family history in Australia is being collated. Regards Patricia Patricia Nalder - my husband's grandmother was a Hosking.
