Also the adjoining land.Ann was to pay to Digory "all outgoings[?] including the High Rent, and also the sum of 5s yearly to his son Digory.My youngest daughter Jane: the dwelling house and garden lately occupied by William CORNISH, she paying my eldest son Digory the sum of ten shillings annuallyAnn and Jane to have a bed, furniture and bedding each, the rest of the household furniture to be divided equally between the four childrenIn a codicil also dated 20th January 1832 he required that:William pay Digory 20s annuallyMary pay Digory 15s annuallyJane pay Digory 15s annuallyThe codicil is ambiguous - were these sums instead of or in addition to those laid down in the original will?NOTE: If Ann (06863) did die at 2 yrs old, the Ann referred to in the will may be Jane Ann (14587). In this case it may be that the Jane in the will is Jennifer Williams. ALL VERY SPECULATIVE - may be other children who are not recorded

Residence Note:
Not known if he arrived in 1866 with Michael or 1869 with father Henry.In 1880 he was married in Ballarat. It is possible that both birth and marriage in 1880-82 were recorded as Ballarat when the events were actually in Stawall.

OCCUPATIONS:
ABT 1907-1931: Farmer/Orchardist in Pomonal.Occupation Note: Described as a farmer only in his son Thomas Edward's burial record. Diggery's own burial record describes him as "Orchardist"..
1906 Miner in Morning Star, Mount Magnet, Coolgardie.Occupation Note: Like his brother Thomas, Diggery struggled to make the poor land pay, and he had to supplement his income with work elsewhere. Mrs MORCOM [assumed to be his wife] wrote in 1907, "We will pay the rents owed when Mr Diggery returns." As no other Diggory has been found in WA, it is assumed that this is the Coolgardie miner.

GENERAL NOTE:
Raylene MORCOM writes that her Great Grandparents, Diggery and Sarah, after much hardship, bought a property at Pomonal which is near Stawell. This property and the original cottage is still (1986) owned by Raylene's father. The cottage has been restored to its original state and is called "Sarah Jane's Cottage".Kym EDWARDS writes that Diggery and Sarah Jane had nine children between 1877 and c.1894.
