Church Record Sunday~ August 04, 1905

The Baptism Record on the left belongs to Daniel Charles Cocklin my Great Uncle. I was surprised when I discovered the record as I don't remember ever hearing my Nana ( my Maternal Grandmother) talk of having an older brother, perhaps she didn't have many memories of him since he passed away in 1911 when she was only 4 years old or maybe I didn't ask enough questions when Nana was living that would of prompted her to share.
 Daniel was the first child born to my Great Grandparents, Daniel Cocklin and Alice Mary Allen, he was born on the 18th of March 1905 and Baptised on the 4th of August at St. John the Evangelist, at the time of his baptism the family was living at 40 Samuel St, my Great Grandfathers Occupation at the time was General Labourer, the Baptism was performed by W.J. Thorburn.
