Biography - Sir Arthur Alfred Clement Cocks: 27 May 1862

Sir Arthur Alfred Clement Cocks (1862-1943), merchant and politician, was born on 27 May 1862 at Wild Duck Creek, Heathcote, Victoria, fourth son of English parents Thomas Cocks, farmer, and his wife Elizabeth, née Adams. About 1873 his father moved to Melbourne and set up as a hosier and tailor. Arthur was educated at a state school at Richmond and started work at 14 in a softgoods warehouse. About 1880 he joined W. Wood & Co., wholesale opticians, and became a commercial traveller. On 17 September 1884 at Richmond he married Elizabeth Agnes Gibb. In 1886 he was sent to Sydney to establish a branch of the firm. He gradually gained financial control and in 1899 registered his own firm, Arthur Cocks & Co., wholesale jewellers and opticians; he remained managing director until 1939. In 1911 the company was reconstructed and by 1914 he had set up branches in Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.
Cocks became active in commercial circles. He was a trustee of the Savings Bank of New South Wales and was a director of the City Bank of Sydney, Arthur Rickard & Co. (Extended) Ltd, and the Australian Alliance Assurance Co. He also invested in the film industry and was a director of Spencer's Pictures Ltd, Australasian Films Ltd, the General Film Co. of Australia Ltd and Union Theatres Ltd. In 1916-18 Cocks was president of the Sydney Chamber of Commerce. Several times chairman of the Importers' Association of New South Wales, in 1940 he was first president of the new Wholesale Importers' Association. He contributed to the standardization of optometry in New South Wales.
Cocks had represented Lang Ward on the Sydney Municipal Council in 1906-14 and was lord mayor in 1913; he was vice-president of its electric light committee in 1909-14. In 1911, with Sir William McMillan and (Sir) Thomas Henley, he started litigation, which went to the Privy Council in 1915, to force the State government to use Government House only as the residence of the governor. He chaired the 1913 royal commission of inquiry into the question of a greater Sydney, which proposed the creation of inner and outer zones. He was founding president in 1921 of the Citizens' Reform Association.
Cocks was elected as a Liberal to the Legislative Assembly, for St Leonards, in October 1910 and held the seat as a Nationalist from 1917 until 1920; in 1920-25 he was a member for North Sydney. In the House he showed particular interest in the development of Sydney and the growth of its industry and commerce. On 20 December 1921 he was treasurer in Sir George Fuller's seven-hour ministry. He held the same portfolio in Fuller's coalition ministry from 13 April 1922. Faced with a deficit, Cocks preached economy and recommended that cabinet should enforce the Board of Trade's decision to reduce public servants' wages by 3s. By a tax agreement with the Commonwealth government he abolished duplication of income tax returns. He produced small surpluses in his two budgets, despite reducing income tax (from 1s. 3d. to 9d.) as well as other taxes. He also negotiated loans for the State in London. In 1924 he ordered (Sir) Bertram Stevens and John Spence, Public Service Board inspectors, to reorganize the Government Printing Office; some employees were retrenched or demoted and both inspectors promoted.
From early 1923 Cocks had hinted he would not stand at the next election. He was appointed K.B.E. in June and next year there was speculation about his possible nomination to the Legislative Council, but he resigned on 14 February 1925 and became agent-general in London. Melbourne Punch, 5 February 1925, approved of his appointment because 'this large, silent, slow-moving man with the dim eyes, the big head, and poker face leaves nothing whatever to chance'. While in London he was executive commissioner at the British Empire Exhibition. Cocks resigned on 17 September, after Jack Lang, premier from June, had attacked him in the House. Lang later alleged that as treasurer Cocks 'had faked the public accounts'. On his return to Australia in December, Sir Arthur expressed his disgust with public life; in the early 1930s he praised the New Guard.
A leading Congregational layman, deacon, lay preacher and Sunday school superintendent, Cocks consistently contributed to charities. He was a director of the Benevolent Society of New South Wales in 1913-19, a member of the board of the Carrington Centennial Hospital for Convalescents, Camden, and president of the Young Men's Christian Association in 1924-34. His appeals for film censorship and temperance seemed incongruous with his film interests and persistent cigar-smoking habits. He lent members of his staff the money to buy their houses and during the Depression often called at needy homes with boxes of groceries.
Cocks was very much a family man. He enjoyed tennis and auction bridge and was a member of the New South Wales Club. Afflicted by blindness and bronchitis, he died at Mosman on 25 April 1943 and was buried in the Congregational section of Northern Suburbs cemetery. He was predeceased by his wife, son and daughter. His estate was valued for probate at £42,908.

Ina married Douglas William Arthur PATTON,29 son of Charles Douglas PATTON 31 and Caroline Mary Alice SCOTT,32 on 8 Feb 1908 in The Manse, Ascot Vale, Melbourne, Victoria.30 Douglas was born on 25 May 1884 in Wallan, Victoria 3756,33 died on 8 Dec 1969 in Longwood, Shire of Strathbogie, Victoria 366520 at age 85, and was buried on 10 Dec 1969 in Fawkner Cemetery & Crematorium, Fawkner, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

An interview conducted by Gary Patton with his Grandfather Ernie Patton on the 11th December 1996.

Douglas was born in a house just out from Wallan near the turn-off to Wandong & Whittlesea.

When he was young he was playing at a creek near his home, whilst attempting to jump the Merri Creek he landed awkwardly breaking his right hip.

He was to undergo numerous operations in an attempt to rectify the damage which manifested itself in him having one leg shorter than the other.

During the years following his accident his brother Arthur would loyally carry him to school, this was no insignificant feat as the boys used to go to the Upper Plenty School. Arthur would have to cart his brother all the way down the Gap Road to get to school, and home again.

Douglas was subsequently fitted with an elevated shoe to compensate for the difference in his leg length.

As a young man, Douglas worked with his father and brothers in the sawmill at the Wallan railyards (later known as Wallan East when the main township moved towards the old Hume Highway), (as mentioned in information relating to his father)

Douglas, with his wife Ina, and family moved to Merlyston, a suburb of Melbourne, where he and his two sons Douglas (Doug) and Ernest (Ernie) opened and operated a wood yard at 41 Boundary Road, Merlynston. Their home was situated on the same block of land. It was to here that Doug (Jnr) would cart timber in the back of an old Dodge car from Wallan to Merlynston, where it would be cut at the wood yard and sold as firewood in and around Melbourne. They then moved to 172 O'Hea's Road in Coburg, it was at this home that they were living when Douglas' wife, Ina, died.

Douglas, his daughter Carrie (Caroline) and elder son Doug Jnr, went to live at Longwood for a very brief period of time for the purpose of obtaining work cutting timber. Following this they then returned to their home in Melbourne.

Whilst cutting timber in a large shed at 1044 Sydney Road, Coburg, Douglas was involved in an accident.
As he was pushing the timber through the saw he had all four fingers on his right hand ripped off by the blades.
Following surgical intervention they were able to successfully reattach his index finger by wiring it to the joint. It was at this time that his doctor 'jokingly' remarked that if he wanted to remove the index finger to 'come back and see him as he could do a cleaner job of it'. This was obviously in reference to the condition of Douglas' other amputated fingers.
To protect the stubs of the fingers of his right hand Douglas wore a leather shield.
Almost 6 weeks following the original accident Douglas was to again suffer an injury at the hands of a saw blade, and in deference to his doctors advice, he cut off his right index finger.

It was in 1942 that Douglas again returned to Longwood, this time with Carrie and Ernie and Mavis with their young family (Shirley & lan). This was again, supposedly, intended as a short term 12 month stay.

Douglas and Ernie were to be employed by a Mr Dudley, only for a period of 12 months.
The purpose of this arrangement was for Douglas, Ernie and Doug (he arrived approximately 6 months after the rest of the family with his wife Molly and young daughter Mary), to 'cut-out' a stack of timber for Mr Dudley.

Douglas, Carrie, Ernie and his family first moved in with the family of Jack Houston in the old hotel (turned residence) at the corner of Hill & Hurley Streets (this house is still owned by the Houston family)
The only other house that Douglas and Carrie lived in was when, as the only remaining Patton family members still living in the Houston household, they jointly purchased with Ernie the house(s) on the corner of Maxfield and Withers Streets.

Douglas became known by his grandchildren and great granchildren as Dar. It was by this name that Dar is fondly remembered in his role as patriarch of the Patton family and his skill and handiwork at carpentry in which he produced a number of items of furniture for his family.
Calling him Dar also created a link to our Scottish roots that many children in the family were unaware of at the time.

A cabinet which he created following the birth of his great grandson Gary, as a baby wardrobe, is still a proud possession for Gary to this day.

As it turned out, Douglas lived in Longwood until his death, and in 1996 Ernie was still joking about the original 12 months that turned into more than half a century.

It would be impossible to post all the articles that have been found within the Trove Newspaper Search Engine in Australia so I have tagged as many as possible with the following link to enable the reader to investigate these documents themselves.

• RESIDENCE: 1909, Kilmore, Victoria 3764. 22

• House Fire: Douglas & Ina lose everything in a house fire, 12 Jun 1913, Upper Plenty, Victoria.
Ina with her two youngest children, Ina Grace "Grace" (2 years) & Caroline Francis "Carrie" (6 months) were lucky to escape with their lives on the night of the 12th of June, 1913 when a lamp exploded. It is assumed that young, 5 year old, Douglas Charles may have been away from the house with his father at the time.

This was actually the eve of Grace's 2nd birthday.

The following article is from The Age, 13 Jun 1913

WALLAN. '97 A new four-roomed weatherboard dwelling,, owned by Mr. Christopher Mahady at Upper Plenty, and occupied by Mr. D. Patton, was burnt to the ground last night, and the whole of the contents consumed. Mr. Patton was absent from home, and Mrs.Patton and two children just had time to escape from the, building in their night attire. It is not yet known whether the house was insured, but there was no insurance on Mr. Patton's furniture, and they lost everything, even to their clothes. The cause of the fire Is said to be the explosion of a lamp.

• RESIDENCE: 1914, Wallan, Victoria 3756. 22

• RESIDENCE: 1918, Broadford, Victoria 3658. Douglas was registered on the electoral rolls as living in Broadford in 1918. It is unknown why they were in Broadford, perhaps work related but this is consistent with what Ernie told his Grandson, Gary Patton about being born in Broadford. His birth was registered in Essendon.

Grills were appointed, trustees to operate the account, as required. The matter of instituting a welcome home district soldiers was, discussed for some

• Community Activities: Wallan Men's Club Debate, 22 Oct 1925, Wallan, Victoria 3756. Kilmore Free Press, Thursday 29 Oct 1925

The Wallan Men's Club held a debate on Thursday last on " Is the Power of the Press detrimental to the best interests of the public ?" Mr Doug. Patton led the negative team, and Mr W. J.
Munro the affirmative. The negative side won by 79 points to 76. The next debate is to be " Should State Government be abolished ?" New members are joining the Club every week, and in training men to speak in public, the club is rendering a valuable service to the community.
The club executive is making an appeal for donations to provide, books for the new lending library. It is hoped to have the library opened for use within a few weeks.

This explains a lot, the Patton's don't like losing a "debate".

• Business Owner: Saw Mill, 10 Mar 1926, Wallan East, Victoria 3756. Kilmore Free Press, Thursday 18th March 1926

From a Correspondent.

Mr Douglas Patton's sawmill in the railway siding at Wallan was destroyed by fire on 10th inst.
Mr Patton and three employees were at work at the mill, when apparently a spark from the engine set fire to the stack of wood nearby, and in a few minutes the whole mill was in flames. Mr
Patton was assisted by railway employees and others in his effotrs to save the mill, but owing to the water shortage very
little could be done. About 70 tons of unsawn firewood were destroyed in addition to the mill, consequently Mr Patton will lose heavily through the fire.

Douglas later went on to operate a wood yard in Merlynston in Melbourne. As to whether this fire was the catalyst for that move is yet to be determined.

• REFORMATION OF THE WALLAN CRICKET CLUB: The Argus, 10 Nov 1927, Wallan, Victoria 3756.

Douglas "Dar" built a baby wardrobe on the birth of his Great-Grandson Gary Patton.
Though originally a cream color with stickers of a Duck and a Goose on either door, it was later painted "Railway Blue" and then "Railway Green".
In his early 40's Gary refurbished it into a drinks / display cabinet, inserting glass into the door and glass shelves.
The original cabinet still remains, particularly the decorative sides which Douglas reclaimed from an old mantel piece.
A treasured item for Gary until this day. On the top of the cabinet are photos of Gary as a baby.
