HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

I found this bottle on a dive on the western side of Bowen Island around 1986 sitting on the sand right next to our anchor, it was guarded by a rather large Angel Shark, that became quite upset when we disturbed it.

John POLLOCK was born 7/8/1842, at Jugiong, Murrumbidgee, the second son of Robert POLLOCK and Agnes BARBOUR.

On the 18/1/1883 “The Telegraph” at Nowra announced that POLLOCK BROS were in business as cordial manufacturers. I do not know how many brothers were involved but William and Alexander certainly; John, James & David are possibilities.  I think the whole family was involved in the original cordial factory at Nowra.
