From on Wednesday, 18 March, 2009

Elizabeth, I found your message asking about Isaac Brudenell and Sarah Moysey.
In the book “Mt Cole – Warrak – A History and its People” it states the following:

Isaac Henry Brudenell landed in Sydney at the age of 15 years. For a time he worked as a butcher’s delivery boy delivering meat on horseback. Isaac married Sarah Moysey, their children being Elizabeth, Isaac, John, Harriet, Ann, William, Sarah, Ellen, Thomas, Elizabeth and Betsy Selina. Isaac and Sarah were among the early pioneers of the district, and although the date of their arrival is unknown, evidence shows that the family were living on the Mount in 1865 as Elizabeth was one of the first children to attend the school which opened in that year.

Isaac worked with his bullock team on the sawmills, then later as a carrier from Geelong to Horsham, the trip taking three weeks. As at this time the railway line did not go past Ararat.

Isaac Brudenell died in Gippsland at the age of 91 years

Sarah Jane married Isaac and her sister Anne Moysey married John Clark. Eliza Betsy was the daughter of Ann and John.
My maternal grandmother was Eliza Betsy Clark who married Albert Ayres
