The Cox family

Betty Cox’s son Tommy is born at the “black town”. His father is Johnny who has adopted the surname given to his wife. Johnny’s Eastern Creek clan name is recorded as “Warrawarry”, “Wooreswoor” and “Warrawandy”. In 1824, Betty and Johnny are living at the “black town” with “Thomas”. Tommy is placed into the Black Town Native Institution in 1828 but his father promptly removes him and refuses to return his son. Johnny later guides the Quaker missionary James Backhouse while his older brother Simeon Cox guides Rev Richard Taylor. (Brook, 1st edit, 28-29)
