Cooma-Monaro Express, Friday, November 21, 1958

Special Supplement - Hooks Pharmacy

Ninety-one years service to Cooma

The Vale Street Pharmacy now known as "Hook’s Pharmacy: was founded in 1867 by Dr. George Yonge Mould and has served the people of Cooma and district for 91 years.

Dr. Mould was one of the pioneers of the Cooma district and his life story is one of sterling service in the interests of medicine in a huge area at a time when the population was widely scattered and communication facilities and transport difficult and unreliable.

Dr. Mould was the sone of Captain John Rowe Mould and was born on 14th February, 1817, near Boconnoc Village, Devonshire, England. He graduated a Physician-Pharmacist at Dublin University in early 1839. Later in that year he married Maria Lanch at All hallow Staining Church, City of London.

They then sailed for Australia on a troopship, carrying some members of the 99th Regiment under Captain Armstrong. Dr. Mould acted as Medical Officer en route to Australia.

Shortly after their arrival, the Moulds set out for Monaro by wagon and were granted land, which is now known as "Boconnoc" near Middlingbank.

Dr. Mould carried out his services as a medical man on horseback, and became widely known, especially on the southern and wester Monaro.

Records state that in 1845 he rode his horse across the flooded Snowy River at Jindabyne where the low lever S.M.A. bridge is now erected to attend to a Mrs. Williamson, delivering the first white child born south of the Snowy River.

He tended the sick far and wide, often without recompense, and also assisted the settlers with veterinary problems.

In 1862 he purchased Stokes’ Store in Adaminaby, which he ran in conjunction with his medial services until 1866 when he sold out to George and Samuel Mackay.

Mrs. Mould died in July 1867, and In October of that year he opened a dispensary in the growing town of Cooma on part of the site now occupied by P.D. Murphy Pty Ltd., and conducted business there until he died on 1st January, 1883, leaving three sons and a daughter.

His descendants have now reached a fifth generation and many of them are engaged in pastoral pursuits on Monaro.

The oldest of these would be Mr. A.W. Mould, of Middling bank.

The dispensary was carried on by Mr. Harry Scott until about 1901 when Mr. W.J. Wiseman took over and carried out the duties until 1912 when he sold to Mr. C, Dawson and went to Wollongong where he conducted a pharmacy until about 1943.

Mr. Dawson conducted the pharmacy at Cooma until 1921 when he contracted pneumonia influenza and died suddenly.

Mr. Fred Rolfe then bought the business and stayed in Cooma until 1928 when he sold to Mr. J. Morris. Mr. Rolfe is still a practicing pharmacist at Queanbeyan.

Mr. Morris remained in Cooma for 4 years and then sold to Mr. C.N. Small and went to Nowra where he is still in business.

Mr. Small sold to Mr. Hook in 1938 and went to Wagga where he is always keen to meet old Cooma people who are visiting that town.

In 1945, Mr. Hook took over the opposition pharmacy and completed the like with the past history of Cooma.

In 1951 Mr. Roy McEwen joined Mr. Hook in partnership and the official name "Hook’s Pharmacy" was registered.


Photography is an important subject at Hook’s Pharmacy. More than £2,000-worth of stock in photographic lines is carried. So extensive are the supplies that a customer recently reported hearing about Hook’s photographic service in Sydney. He had gone into a Sydney store for an item which proved to be out of stock. He had been asked where he lived and on replying "Down on the Snowy" had been told to ask at Hook’s Pharmacy. They stock everything there for the photographer," they told him. Saved to biographies

Pattrick. I saw in the Snowy Monaro Family History Journal where you are having a reunion next February. I am the research officer for the Bega Valley Genealogy Society and I was wondering if you will have a book on the Mould family for sale - or will this draft copy be completed after the Reunion? We consider Cooma/Monaro to be still in our local area and I try to obtain as much local content for our library as I can, so I would appreciate to know just where you are up to with publishing. Look forward to hearing from you. Pat Raymond Research Officer BVGS

Hi Pat, We have a draft of most of the material but there is a big gap in our research on GY Mould between 1840 and 1858, we are hesitant to go further until we fill that, also from my experience of Reunions, that is where we will pick up new information and photos, so we will probably publish prior to the following reunion, maybe in 2005. We release new research etc as we go, I publish it on hard copy and also as a newsletter on the web. Have a look at our site, URL below. You would also be amused by out KYBEYAN group, accessible from the same site, that's a bit closer to you. The ROSE family site is also accessible from this site.
I have attached our reference library, probably nothing new to you there. Are you on the Rootsweb AUS-SE-NSW mailing list? I have picked up a couple of new books since - Stewart and McGufficke Histories. I am also trying to get hold of a copy of 'DISCOVERING MONARO' by WK Hancock, Cambridge Press 1972 ISBN 0 521 08 4393
Pat Raymond Sent: Tuesday, September 11, 2001
Pattrick, Thanks very much for all the info you sent. We have about 20 of the books you listed so there are a few for me to follow up. You say you don't have a lot of information from 1840 to 1858 - have any of the early Court Bench Books survived for the area where George was living? I have found the early Eden Bench Books hold so much information about the people of our area. A couple of years ago I had some correspondence with a lady whose grandmother was Augusta Emily Thicknesse. I don't know if you have been in touch with her. Her name is Isabel Wilkinson, and her address in 1999 was "Araluen" Plain Station Rd., Tabulam 2469 Thanks again - all the best for your reunion. Pat Raymond BVGS

Please keep in touch about the books etc What are Court Bench Books? Where do I find them? Thanks for passing on Isabel Wilkinson's name, yes, she is a very active member of our research group. Best Regards Pattrick Mould
Pat Raymond Sent: Wednesday, September 12,
Pretty sure that they are at the Archives at the Rocks. We have bought the two films that were available for the Eden Court House and they start at 1848 and go up to the 1870s. I think I've been told there is at least one film available of the Bombala Court House. They are made up of the "Letter Book of the Police Office, Eden" and have all outgoing letters that were written to Colonial Secretary, Attorney General, Superintendent of Convicts, Colonial Storekeeper, Treasurer etc. etc. In these letters there are lots of information about various people who were residing in the area. Then the majority of what is on the films is a transcript of all cases that came before the Courts. They quite often list the cases in great detail and everyone has their say - the accused, the police and quite often many witnesses. The witnesses say who they are, where they came from and what their occupation was - then go on to give the details of that particular case before the courts. You also have lots of information on the police. When they were sworn in, when they were dismissed - then when they were reinstated - where they were transferred to, when they were fined - mostly for drinking etc. etc. I have found these two films contain the best information on the very early days that I have come across - for our area anyway. It depends on who was the Clerk of the Court though - sometimes the handwriting is so terrible that it's impossible to work out. I would suggest that you give the Archives a ring to see if any of the Bench Books for the Cooma area survived and have been microfilmed - maybe they have their holdings listed on the internet. Must admit I don't have a lot of time to go searching different sites. Anyway keep your fingers crossed that some of the Cooma records did survive. If they did, I am sure you'll find something in them. Regards Pat

Kathryn, Thank you very much for the copy of the will and your research Information. I look forward to your transcription of the will, I am not very good at old English.
I don't doubt any of your information, the material I have is all supplied by other people, I haven't had the time to prove any of it. I would be very interested in a decadency chart of what you have, (or a gedcom file if available). I am afraid I am not in a position to ring you, I am an Invalid Pensioner and my budget is blown. I will pass on your details to John Pattrick he may call you. Looking forward to hearing from you.Best Regards Pattrick Mould

Hello Pattrick, Yes, I had seen your website with those details. Unfortunately, I have a bit of a problem with some of it. And I hope you don’t mind me putting in my two cents worth! Please let me know if you dispute anything that I have. I have already provided some info to David Cranch as he had been given incorrect info re Richard/Anna Maria. I’ll copy in an email from April of last year that I sent on a couple of subjects. I have personally viewed the films of the actual parish entries quoted below. But firstly, let’s get back to this will..... I will endeavour to transcribe it (as much as I can) over the next couple of days. Then maybe we can toss more ideas back and forth. From my initial somewhat cursory glance, the most important thing for me is that he confirms my theory that he is from Totnes and that his father’s name is Richard also. Mary Maria Payne was Richard’s second wife and interestingly has the same surname as his daughter-in-law -- I continue to wonder if there is a link between them, or mere coincidence. Richard (son of Richard and Anna Maria, b 1812) m. Elizabeth Payne 3/11/1836 Christ Church Greyfriars, Newgate Elizabeth Payne lists her place of birth as Bethnal Green, and I am convinced that the Parish entry for Mary Maria’s marriage has the bride and groom’s ‘from’ details reversed. So, both women were from Bethnal Green and had the same surname. There has to be a link and we will uncover it!
<<Copy of email from K Barnett to David Cranch sent 5/4/01
Hello, David, Here I am with some transcriptions of the entries in the All Hallows Register........some of which are at odds with what you were told by your researcher. If you paid for the research and got incorrect details - I’d say you would have every right to be disappointed. Should you want a copy of any of the filmed entries, just let me know and I will arrange for them to be sent to Sydney for copying, then I’ll scan them and e-mail them over. That might take a week or so.

( My note: Now call me an old ‘kill joy’ if you like - but even this might be entered incorrectly.!!

(My note - Anna Maria did not have a sister called Eliz nor did any brother marry an Eliz that I have yet found. Richard Cranch born 1779 in Totnes had both mother and sister called Elizabeth. Which gives more weight to our theory of where he came from.)
I do hope that all this doesn't put too many moggies amongst the pigeons........... and I hate to say it but........... I think my second marriage theory for Richard m. Anna Maria, then m. Mary Maria is holding water. When I find out when Anna Maria died, you'll be the first to know. Didn't see her on a cursory look at the All Hallows Burials today - will look in depth as soon as I can. but there is always the chance that she went back to St Leonard's to be buried - and I don't have the burials for St L's. St Leonard's is such a large church with so many comings and goings that the records are on hoards of films, each one pretty specific and for a short time frame. I ordered the one containing Richard/Anna Maria's marriage in the hope that it might have a clue to his origins. No such luck! Will be in touch soon, Kathryn>> End quote
Now, as you can see, the records for St Leonard’s Marriages show that some of the info you have looks ‘slightly wobbly’. If you will excuse my frankness!
On the descendant line you have for James CRANCH and Sarah GRAHAM,
a) there aren’t enough kids, and
b) their Richard married Mary PENNINGTON
Anna Maria CRANCH was the daughter of James and Sarah and married her cousin Richard CRANCH from Totnes.
And Richard and Mary Maria married at All Hallows according to the Parish records. Their first child Mary was also Bapt at All Hallows but the other 3 (two Emmas and Anna) were bapt at Brixton.
My hypothesis has been that Richard CRANCH and James CRANCH are these indicated below. This is now taken one step closer by this new will.

From: Pattrick To: Kathryn Barnett

Thank you very much for the transcript of the will, you certainly did much better than I did. I am very interested in the amount left to Maria and the stipulations. GY MOULD need not appear to have any assets until he purchased the Adaminaby store, a boarding house, other building blocks and the 5000 acre property 'Boconnoc', these purchases all appear to have occurred between 1858 and 1862. So I would be interested to know when Richard died, when the will was probated, and when Maria's money was forwarded to her. This information could resolve a few mysteries and put new light on a lot of other information. I am very grateful to you for the work you have done on Richard Cranch. Have you been in touch with [email protected] in regard to this information? Best Regards Pattrick Mould

Will update
Further searching has solved one more problem word on that will. Regarding his lands in Totnes, he says: "All those my freeholds and leaseholds messuages and lands situate and being at Totness " I was in doubt about the 'messuages' - but have just found that it is a legal term for 'dwelling house with a outbuildings and land assigned to its use' .....I should have checked the Oxford first!! I know! Cheers! Kathryn

Re: Will update
Pattrick, As far as I can tell, Richard died in the last Qtr of 1840. GRO Ref: Cranch Richard London 1840 December Qtr, Vol. II, Page 135 This probate was granted 25th Sept 1841 - as in the last paragraph of the transcription - which should read: On the 25th Sept 1841 Admon * with the will annexed of the goods chattels & credits of Richard Cranch late of London ......... The 'Admon' has a line above the m which I thought was a tt - anyway, my advice from a lawyer suggests that it is a tilde or a mark used to show an abbreviation. The complete word would be 'Administration'. So further back in the document what I could only decipher as 'adettor' is actually 'admor' - short for administrator! Thank heavens for modern lawyers! He also suggests that the court might have had a problem with the will as it was granted as an Administration with the will annexed. I've had another crack at a couple of words and after I've heard from David Cranch with anything he has, I might re-send the updated transcription.

On the 25th Sept 1841 Admon with the will annexed of the goods chattels & credits of Richard Cranch late of London Street Fenchurch Street in the City of London Gentleman [dec’ed] was granted to Richard Cranch the son & residuary legatee (upon the conditions therein mentioned) named in the said will having been first sworn duly to administer John Bentall & Joseph Graham Lowe the executors named in the said will having first [anounced] the probate & execution thereof (as by acts of Court appears).

(* Note by K. Barnett - Josiah Graham Lowe was the son of Joseph Lowe and Catherine Graham (sister of Sarah Graham) and therefore was Richard Cranch’s cousin.)

Messuages = dwelling house with outbuildings and land assigned to its use

Admors = administrators

Admon = administration

Appurts = appurtenances

Sorry this has taken so long to get to you. I am waiting for a will for Joseph CRANCH from Totnes who I presume to be James CRANCH's brother. I had hoped to get it sooner and be able to update a few things, however - that is obviously not meant to be!

Let me know if this Desc. Chart, attached, is suitable.

INTRO: James CRANCH was the son of Richard CRANCH and Susanna TUCKER of Totnes in Devon. Several of the family were in the textile industry and James left Devon to live in London where he traded as a weaver in Moorfields, in the City of London. James' nephew Richard CRANCH, an attorney, later also left Devon for London and married James' daughter Anna Maria CRANCH. Regards Kathryn Barnett

Hi Pattrick, Saw a site in the LDS... I am the GGGGrandson of a John Mould who was from Newcastle upon Tyne in Northumberland. He was transported aboard Admiral Gambier to Sydney arriving Dec 1808. His wife Eleanor was transported some years later aboard Minstrel ariving Oct 1812. They possibly did meet in Aust. but John had formed an assoc. with another woman as was often the case and encouraged. They eventually settled in Port Dalrymple at Georgetown Tasmania where my line continued. Wonder if there is any connection. I have quite a lot on this family. Look forward to hearing from you in due course. Best wishes John Mclean in Avalon Beach, Sydney.

Hi John,

Sorry to take so long to get back to you, I have been down at Cooma organising the MOULD FAMILIES REUNION 2002 No doubt we are related, just a matter of a lot more research. If you send me all your information I will put a page up for you on the MOULD site. I already have two Australian MOULD families up and lots of English and American families, have you had a look at these?

Best Regards Pattrick Mould

I would love to hear from you on a personal level, not just on a
genealogy level.

Hi Shirley Mould,
Thank you very much for getting in touch with me.
I am very interested in the MOULD family in Canada, my father visited
relatives there during WW2, alas he has passed away with the information. I
believe there is a large family of Moulds their that came from the same
family as mine in Devon.
I am very interested in the information you have sent. Are the dates
birthdates? If you could send me more information ie dates, events and
places; I would be happy to put a webpage up for you on the MOULD site.
Looking forward to hearing from you, Pattrick Mould


Hello Pattrick, I contacted you nearly a year ago now, and then lost the use of my PC, but now I am back online and I thought I would just send you this file with my family tree on my fathers side. It's not as detailed as it could be but my father created it from memory. Don't know if it will be of any interest.

Morning Peter, Thanks for your informative email received on the 27th. If you wouldn't mind typing that material up for me I will create a web page for you, am put the material in the MOULD newsletter. As you would appreciate, it is a bit difficult doing that with a JPEG file. Looking forward to hearing from you. Regards, Pattrick Mould,

Hello Patrick, My name is Hope Barwick. John Mould is my ggggrandfather. His son Hasley Wood Mould had 5 daughters. One of them was named Anna she is my ggrandmother. I have to say that I am very impressed with the research you have done. Please email me and let me know what I can do to help and maybe swap some info.

Hello Pattrick, I turned on the computor this morning hoping and praying you would answer. I was on so late last night, so excited about finding you guys.

Well, I am not sure how many John Moulds are out there. All I have is a letter that Anna Mould wrote. My grandmother typed it and slaughtered a lot of the information. Thanks for some research that was already done for my ggrandfather Frederick Lee Coffin I was able to narrow done the spelling of the last name. I had Mole, Mould, and Mold as spellings. The sad part was that Anna wasn't that far back. My grandmother and mother died 10 years ago and left me the mess to figure out. I am not complaining, I just wish they were here to help me.

Anna is one of 5 daughters born To Hasley Wood Mould. Hasley married Libby Gilchrist. Hasley is the son of John Mould who married Mary Beeman (I have spelling of Beams, Beaman, and Beeman. I have also seen Beman) Here is a letter that Anna wrote:

The Mould side of the family, written by Anne Coffin

John Mould was born in 1821 in historic Banbury England. At 22 years of age he came to America and located in Northhampton, Fuldton Co. New York. He was married Oct. 24, 1841 to Mary A Beeman, In 1853, he moaved to Ralston Spa New York. He died Jan 18, 1892, His wife Mary died Sept 18, 1900. They h;ad six sones, one of these was Halsey Wood Mould. he married Libby Gilchrist on Nove. 27, 1872, at Ballston Apa N.Y. They had five daughters Minnie L., Sadies S., Ruie (?)., Anna N., Alien L,.

Andrew Gilchrist born in North Ireland in Nov. 25, 1819. Died in Big Rapids, Mich Jan. 9,1894. Came to America when 3 years old. Sarah S. White born in town of Salem N.Y. Aug 27, 1821.

Okay Pattrick, I am not that poor at my grammer (althought I am bad) I hope you noticed that it was Written by Anne and yet There is no Anne Mould, Just Anna. I believe it was slaughtered by my grandmother and not by Anna. I sure Anna would know how to spell her name. I have to my lineage if you are interested. I would like to know what you have. If you don't mind.

My husband was in Australia for two years back in 1989 abt. He is at work right now or else I would find out the time difference. I am in California, Northern part. In a little town called Oroville. My husband and I are planning a trip to Australia for our 10 year anniversary (which is in 4 years). You are more than welcome to give me a call when ever you would like. I have a in home business and am able to be home all the time. Please call me. (530) 534-8403. I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for you time Hope Barwick

From: Pattrick To: hope barwick

Hi Hope, Thanks for your reply. As you have seen on the WebPages at:

I am keen to collect as much MOULD material as possible, in the hope that it will all join together one day. If you send me all your material I will put up a WebPages for you. Send a photo. You will get enquiries from this page - you never know what you might find. The most popular MOULD forum I have found is the MOULD mailing list at ROOTSWEB, go to and select surnames M - MOULD. Sometimes it is a bit slow. Write asking for information about your John Mould.

I am afraid I find it difficult phoning overseas as I am an invalid pensioner, very, very, limited resources. But would be happy to speak to you if you rang me. The best time to contact me is 8-11am most days, (about 5pm your time I think) or set up a time via email. Best Regards Pattrick Mould

Hi Pattrick,

I recently sent for a CD of the baptism from Lanteglos by Fowey Parish Church for the period 1716-1841. There are only 3 Mould/Moulds and no Mold.

1)William Mould bapt 9/11/1743

2)Nicolas Moulds bapt 20 5 1746

3)Mary Mould bapt 4/2/1748

The parents of all three are John and Elizabeth.

Subject: [CON-GEN] A Christmas offer
I have been "hunting and gathering" the Cornish names of our forefathers and foremothers for some time now. The list has been SO VERY KIND to me, I want to share. I started off doing HUGO (et al) and ended up doing Cornwall itself. My database is quite large. If anyone requests a surname, I will check my own base for the data on that name. I might only a marriage or just christenings, but I am willing to share. It might not be perfect, but I might have a missing link. The data will only come from my computer, no other sources other than the Phillimore. So consider this offering as a Christmas present without the Red Ribbon and fancy "to and from" card. I am simply sharing MY research. I don't know how many people will be taking me up on this, so please be patient. So line up alphabetically please <vbg>. I will answer with an attachment of either a gedcom (fingers crossed on that one) or an EXCEL .xls file. Sue
Dear Sue, Thank you for our generous offer, I am looking for MOULD throughout Cornwall and would be grateful for anything you have. Could you tell me what period Phillimore's covers, please? Best Regards Pattrick.

Hi Patrick... and Merry Christmas, Please do yourself a favor and check out on the site for the surname of MOLE - MOLES - MOULDER MULLES . You might find something there. MOYLE is also suspicious.
