Born in 1816, the fifth child of John VINCENT and Susannah RIVERS, she arrived in Hobart Town with her family from London in 1823. In 1832 she married Henry Mylam COCKERILL. He was granted a licence for the Castle Inn, built by her father, from October 1836 to 1846.
Life with Henry was not dull as some people in Bothwell objected to his convict origins. They moved to the New Norfolk area in 1851.
They had 15 children so it is perhaps not surprising that she died in 1864 at 47 of a liver complaint. They were living at the Cawthorn property, Arundel, at Macquarie Plains at the time.
