Anthony Cottrell 27 May 1835 Chief District Constable Launceston; Members of the Port Phillip Association
Anthony Cottrell gave up his post as Chief Constable of Launceston and went to the Port Phillip district with the first settlers in 1835 after marrying Frances SOLOMON (daughter of Joseph Solomon) at Evandale on 21 Jan 1835
Anthony Cottrell Gentleman, wife Frances dau Ellen Lowes Cottrell born 12 Nov 1835 baptised 9 Jul 1839,
and son Anthony Crisp Cottrell born 22 Nov 1837 baptised 9 Jul 1839
and dau Harriet Ann Cottrell born 14 Feb 1839 baptised 9 Jul 1839 at St James Cathedral, Melbourne
In March 1839 Cottrell was an auctioneer in Melbourne operating from an office in William Street, which was a second building at the back of a block purchased by Batman at the first legal land sales conducted by Hoddle in June 1837 on which Batman had built a two story building on the SW Corner of Collins and William Streets with a large ground floor room which was the main assembly point for residents and known as the Auction Rooms. It was there that Cottrell sold a wide range of Batman's possessions under orders from his executors seeking to recover funds to repay Batman's creditors after his death in May 1839. Cottrell's acquisition of this place of business came by virtue of an interesting legal agreement with Batman in January 1839, for which the deed still exists, in which he undertook to pay Eliza Batman, John Batman's wife who was about to leave for England, 60 pounds a year for the rest of her life in exchange for a peppercorn rental on the building in William Street. The background is that Batman appears to have been estranged from his wife and had declared in his will made in December 1837 that she should receive only 5 pounds from his estate, and was not entitled to dower out of any land he held. Whether the arrangement with Cottrell amounted to real compensation of lasting value is difficult to say, as Cottrell moved to another place of business in Queen Street early in 1840, and in September 1840 he returned to Tasmania.

Cottrell's original land on the Nile passed into other hands in 1839 and he acquired another smaller property of 5 acres near Launceston that year. Later he was a partner with Joseph Kirby, Eliza Solomon and Henry Lion in a 1 acre property in 1857. His later years were lived in Hobart where Anthony Cottrell died at his home in Elphinstone Road on 4 May 1860, aged 54.
