George Cook a blacksmith, bought Allotment 6 Section 10 Albert Street on June 12 1863. He still owned the property in 1887 as his name is among the names of occupiers of the blocks 6 to 1A of section 10 who were asked to approve mining under their land in 1887. See Applications to Mine on Private Property - David Hughes.

George no longer owned the allotment in 1898 when his son Henry Cook, who was in partnership with his father 'in the business of blacksmithy' died, leaving a widow, Louisa, and two young children.

Allotment 6 was now owned by Thomas Walter Townsend whose affidavit in Henry Cook's probate papers states that he owns 'all that piece of land being Crown allotment six section ten at Sebastopol parish of Ballarat county of Grenvile containing one rood twenty three perches and seven tenths of a perch or thereabouts on which is erected a six roomed weatherboard house in good order (a blacksmith and wheelwrights shop and other buildings) situate on the corner of Albert and Bridge Streets Sebastopol and which property I value at the sum of four hundred and fifty pounds’
