  • Notes 


    • The Daily Telegraph (Launceston, Tasmania) of 14 May 1917 carried an obituary for Mrs Catherine Cobham:
      'PERSONAL
      News has reached Melbourne of the death at Goulburn (N.S.W.) of Mrs Catherine Cobham, widow of the late Mr Francis McCrae Cobham, superintendent of police, Victoria. Mrs Cobham, who was in her 86th year, was the daughter of Captain Walter Synnot, formerly of H.M. 66th (Yorkshire) Regiment and the 6th Inniskillen Dragoons, son of Sir Walter Synnot, of Ballimoya, Ireland. She accompanied her father, Captain Synnot, as a child to Van Dieman's Land 82 years ago.
      Some years later she and other well known members of the family migrated to Port Phillip. The better part of her life she lived in Victoria, where she had many close friends and family connections. She leaves a large family behind her, among whom is Mrs Constance Scott, of Goulburn. The sole survivor of Mrs Cobham's immediate family is her youngest brother, Mr Nugent Synnot.'
