Stories of extraordinary Australians

Lots of Australians ask me about relatives of theirs who drove for Cobb & Co or who they think owned competitor firms in 19th century Australia. Check out the list to see if your relative is there. If there is a Cobb & Co driver missing, let me know!

In the past years dozens of families have written to provide updates to the list below. It has been further enlarged to over 940 through a painstaking review of old newspaper records.
