From the 1890s until post war many families settled in the Cockburn District and contributed to the development of this diverse community.
Is this your story?
A project is underway to create a permanent memorial to these families.
Are you interested?
Did your family settle 1890-1940?
The Historical Society of Cockburn is interested to hear from anyone who wishes to participate in such a project. The memorial will be housed in the Wagon House of the Azelia Ley Homestead at Manning Park.
Family names, arrival date, birthplace and other relevant information will be recorded of interested families.
