Re: John and Esther Cottam, Lancashire Co
Hello Kim
I have quite a lot of information about the Cottam family who emigrated to Australia from Lancashire, arriving here in 1855. Ralph Cottam 1st, son of Seth Cottam senior and Mary Headon, is the father of an Eliza Ann Cottam. She was born in Lamberton Green, Wigan, Manchester and emigrated with her parents and four brothers. She married a John Joseph Pearce who inherited the family property then called Two Brooks, now called Ardrossan, near Batlow.
One of her brothers, Ralph Cottam 2nd, is my great grandfather. He had thirteen children eleven of whom married and had children.
Ralph Cottam 1st had a full brother, Seth Cottam 2nd, and a half brother, Thomas, son of Seth senior and Rebecca Hardman, who also emigrated to Australia.
I am wondering if any of these people are your relatives?
Thomas also had a brother called John who was born 11.5.1829. He died in Sydney NSW. No other information.
