Cocker Family Genetics & Origins
Benjamin Cocker's ancestors have been living in the Huddersfield area since 1698 A.D. According to genetic evidence, the ancestral male line of Benjamin Cocker (Born August 17, 1785, Yorkshire, England) were Ashkenazi Jews originally from the area of ancient Canaan in the Middle East, in what is today, Israel, Palestine, and Lebanon. These Middle Eastern male ancestors emigrated to Germany, intermarriage occurred with German and Finnish/Russian women before their descendants emigrated and settled in England in 1698 A.D. In England, the male line of the Cocker family intermarried with Anglo-Saxon British and Scottish women before some of their descendants dispersed from England and colonized other parts of the world in Canada, South Pacific, Australia and the United States in the mid 1800's. The question of when they became Christians is unknown, based on the history of persecutions and forced conversions of Jews into Christianity at this period in England, one can only assume why some members of the Cocker family including Rianna Richards' Jewish ancestors of England became Christians.
Benjamin Cocker, born August 17, 1785, in Yorkshire was a preacher, wool-trader, woollen cloth manufacturer, and Rianna Richards' great, great, great grandfather co-wrote these Christian sermons in the 1800's: "Victorian Wesleyan Sermons - Preached by Benjamin Cocker of Mirfield and Charles Horsfield of Dewsbury" edited, foreword, copyright by Mark Dalby; designed and published in Worcestershire, UK by Aspect Design in 2010.

Image of Benjamin Franklin Cocker, elected to the Chair of Philosophy in 1869 University of Michigan, Ann Arbor -- "Professor of Psychology, Speculative Philosophy, and Philosophy of Religion" 1869-1883 at the University of Michigan, U.S.A.
Benjamin Franklin Cocker was a textile manufacturer in Yorkshire, England then he emigrated with his brothers to Australia in 1850 and became a businessman and trading-ship owner. In 1856 Benjamin Franklin Cocker embarked on a trading voyage with his crew from Australia to New Zealand, Kingdom of Tonga, Tahiti (French Polynesia) and Fiji in his trading vessel. While at a brief stop in Fiji to visit English Wesleyan missionaries who stationed there at the time, somehow took a short expedition with a companion to visit a pagan temple before their returning voyage to Australia. Consequently, it was a disastrous decision; they narrowly escaped being devoured by a horde of hungry Fijian cannibals, according to their terrifying, and near death ordeal in the island of Fiji. In 1857 Benjamin Franklin Cocker emigrated to the United States and settled in Michigan where he became a Clergyman. In 1869, Reverend Dr. Benjamin Franklin Cocker became a professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and taught there until his death in 1883.

2. Joseph Cocker, was a bank manager for the Huddersfield Banking Company in Dewsbury in the 1800's. He was the only son who never left England in 1850. Joseph Cocker born 1823 was married to Maria (née Warburton) Cocker in Huddersfield (the wedding ceremony took place at Queens St. Methodist Church, Yorkshire on August 04, 1850). Maria (née Warburton) Cocker born on February 17, 1829 and christened at Almondbury, All Hallows (Yorkshire, England) on April 26, 1829 died from Pneumonia at age seventy-one on December 30, 1900, and was buried in Dewsbury, Yorkshire.

3. Joshua Cocker, the first British Consul in the Kingdom of Tonga; became the secretary of King George Tupou I, from 1875 and until his premature death in 1880 at age fifty-six.
Joshua Cocker was a businessman, Methodist preacher and a banker in Yorkshire, England. In 1850, he and three of his brothers emigrated to Australia in search of better jobs and business opportunities whereby he accumulated wealth from running a merchant store and owning a trading ship. In 1856 joined by his younger brother, William Cocker and his wife, Elizabeth (née Lobley) Cocker and their two young British-born children, Benjamin Lobley Cocker, born on April 30, 1849, in Dewsbury; William Walker Cocker, born on October 16, 1853, in Howden.
In 1856 the English colonists emigrated to the Kingdom of Tonga. Cobra at this time was a lucrative commodity between the global European and the South Pacific markets, which enticed wealthy traders and settlers from Germany and England to establish trading posts in Tonga.
Joshua and Elizabeth Cocker and their children lived in the palace of King George Tupou I in the capital, Nuku'alofa between the years 1856-1861. On December 11, 1860, Elizabeth Lobley Cocker gave birth to a daughter; they named her, Charlotte Elizabeth Cocker. The infant was the first European baby born in the Kingdom of Tonga. In 1879 and at the age of nineteen, Charlotte Elizabeth Cocker married Henry William August Riechelmann, a prosperous German-born merchant from Prussia.
It is true to say that the King's English advisers: Joshua Cocker, Shirley Waldemar Baker and an English businessman by the name of Mr. Moss, drafted the original Constitution of Tonga.
Joshua and Elizabeth Cocker and their children were the first European settlers in the Kingdom of Tonga according to the Official Palace records of King George Tupou I. They never returned to Yorkshire, England again; their descendants today are living in the United States, Tonga, Cook Islands, Fiji, New Zealand, Samoa, Australia and other parts of the world.

There was recession in the commercial world in Australia around 1854, the Cocker brothers decided to divide up the business which ultimately almost wiped out their fortunes. William Cocker then immigrated with his older brother, Joshua Cocker and sister-in-law Elizabeth (née Lobley) Cocker to the Kingdom of Tonga around 1856, then he moved again for the island of Tahiti, and finally settled in Vancouver Island, British Columbia the 1857. In 1859, William Cocker "secured a banking job position" with the Macdonald Bank on Yates Street in Victoria, British Columbia, then he became a "Bank Manager" with the same company at their location in the Caribou, British Colombia before his election for parliament. According to the Journal of the Second House of Assembly of Vancouver Island, British Colony - William Cocker was "elected to Vancouver Island Second House of Assembly and became a Member of Parliament" (First Sitting) on September 09, 1862 and (Last Sitting) on February 27, 1863. There are conflicting stories on his whereabouts but according to the Cocker family history - William Cocker went to Mexico at the age of thirty-seven in 1865 and literally disappeared there under mysterious circumstances; and his remains are nowhere to be found to this day.

Religion & Political Party
Rianna Richards is a Christian, conservative Republican.
Born To Be A Writer, Childhood
Rianna Richards began her interest in writing, and letter writing at the very early age of four, which caught the attention of her aging father who was a College Educator and one of the first members of her family to notice her immense interest in perfecting her writing skills, English spelling, and love of reading. As a child, Rianna Richards spent hours and hours sketching drawings, coloring her artwork, writing and reading varieties of fairy tale books fluently in the English language before she attended kindergarten.
Rianna Richards' First Fiction Novel At Age 18, Written in Seattle
By the age of eighteen, Rianna Richards began writing her first novel in Seattle in which she entitled: Kiss This Soil Goodbye.
The novel was unpublished, but it was a heart-wrenching story about a young girl who was born to a wealthy, and very powerful family in a foreign country. Her life of privilege came to an end one day, it happened so abruptly, and like many tragedies in fiction novels, something unimaginable happened after her seventeenth birthday.
Quite shocking, without a chaperone for the very first time of her life, she was banished and exiled from her family and country of birth to the United States of America where she became penniless, homesick, and worst of all, a third class citizen.
Written with such emotions; there were times when this story mentioned and described starvation staring right through her, and invoking her spirits that she was at the very doorstep of hopelessness and defeat.
The novel, however, as sad as it was, in the beginning, had a good ending. Kathleen, a natural beauty and the main character of the story, was rescued by an American medical doctor who believed in her and helped her established a successful career in modeling where she later became the CEO of an empire.
Below is a copyright excerpt from the novel,
"Kiss This Soil Goodbye"
published on June 29, 2016 at:site.riannarichards.com/home
The letter from Kathleen to her grandmother, Lucy
My dearest Grandma, I do not know what to tell you, but the emptiness I have felt since my arrival in the United States this morning has overwhelmingly possessed me, in such a way, my heart is aching for home and you and my younger sister, Anna-Jane.
Similarly to the story of Joseph; his siblings forcefully exiled him into Egypt, I now feel the same heartache and emotional disposition he must have felt thousands of years ago in a new land far away from home, and far away from the people he loved the most.
I do not know when I will ever see you both again, as my banishment from my country of birth and the only family I knew had struck my heart and soul with such force, that I am so stricken with unimaginable grief and sorrow. I know deep in my heart, it will take the time to overcome the affliction and misfortune of my young life. But I must be strong, grandma, and continue on the path of my ancestors, who seek their destiny in new lands far away from their country of birth and family they have loved so dearly. The bravery and accomplishments they have achieved throughout the course of their adventurous lives, in fortune and sad circumstances, and if I may add, as good, God-fearing citizens of their newly adopted countries: these are the lessons I have learned from their plight. It seems as if their past had haunted me or intertwined with my life, this, I find very compelling.
Grandma, my prayers are with you and my younger sister, and I love you both with all my heart. Your loving and most respectful granddaughter, Kathleen.
Rianna Richards' Second Novel At Age 21
Rianna Richards began writing again her second unfinished and unpublished Novel she entitled: Joseph and Elizabeth Cook - The English Pioneers.

Stella Chadwin (Rianna Richards' current novel)
Born to one of the most powerful and aristocratic families in Seattle and gifted with wit and intelligence, regretfully, disowned by her family on her twenty-first birthday; this is the story of Stella Chadwin. A natural grey-eyed beauty who set out to find success alone in a world seemingly harsh and cruel contrary to the sheltered life of her past, and who finds love at last in the arms of a handsome medical doctor from Europe, who not only took her virginity; but, her innocence in a turmoil relationship deemed scandalously enough for print in the front covers of the local magazines.

Biography of Dr. Shadi Abuolba By Rianna Richards
I, for the most part was never a person who gave up so easily on anything or being pessimistic about anything I do in life. After all, since I was a child; I have always been a very positive and optimistic person but this for the very first time I felt very alone and much of a hopeless romantic. Breaking up and failures in my own personal relationship with a suitor or fiance’ was something I greatly detested and never thought I could ever come out of it sane or subsequently maintained a normal state of mind. I have always suffered tremendously in despondent and painful goodbyes; suddenly, failure in romance became a part of my history, and it remained permanently with me, a good number of years of my adult life, until the very day I met Dr. Shadi Abuolba in 2003. From that day on, my entire world changed, and I became the happiest woman on earth for there is not the slightest doubt in my mind, he was my everlasting partner from God.

Copyright Excerpts from The Doctor of Pinehurst by Rianna Richards
Inadvertently, February fourteen came a different day for Dr. Chad. The sun shone very early that morning, although still cold outside, and the fog was seen drifting miles away from the Pinehurst estate; the living species of nature for some unknown reason sensed what the all seen eye had known beforehand. The birds nevertheless, were happily chirping from outside his bedroom windows as if they were celebrating something special in their own genuine, loving and playful ways. It was the dawn of a new day, of a new beginning supposedly; it was Valentine's Day.
Dr. Chad had just finished his rounds at the William Horde Hospital in Pinehurst, Michigan when his cell phone rang. A quick glance at the contact's information, it was Michael, a physician friend as well as a fellow tenant at the Pinehurst Estate.
It must be news about Diane, he thought quietly to himself as he cautiously pressed the talk button.
"Yes, Michael," Chad answered.
"She has arrived!" said Michael with excitement in his voice.
"Who are you talking about Michael?"
"Diane Grobetts has just arrived at the Pinehurst estate, are you bringing her roses tonight? Remember, it's Valentine's Day!" as he half-jokingly teased him on the phone.
"Is she pretty? Michael?" The phone went dead. "Darn!" Chad disappointedly cursed himself.
Chad couldn't help but smile at the very thought, that perhaps, he and Diane Grobetts might end up marrying one day, but that, of course, would only happen if she's still single and available, or thus, possess the right qualities and compatibilities he was looking for in a woman.
At the ripe age of twenty-five Dr. Chad was ready to settle down. He had already accomplished his studies in medical school, and within a year, he'd receive his medical license to practice General Practitioner in Michigan, and presumably if everything goes well, life will go on just as he had imagined: the living happily ever after that we generally read in most happy endings in romantic novels. That's so what Dr. Chad thought and envisioned of course, but we all acknowledged the very fact, that life can change without a moment's notice and within the blinking of an eye, our lives will eventually end one day; and whether we are to become mortals or immortals, we have no control of it when death comes knocking on our front doors.
Diane Grobetts finally arrived at the Pinehurst estate at five thirty that evening, exhausted from her six hours direct flight from Seattle to the Detroit Metropolitan International Airport, hungry and cold, her last destination was the Pinehurst estate where she would live for the next six months.
Charlotte, the caretaker of the estate warmly received Diane Grobetts and with the help of two staff members, they carried her bags and luggage to her furnished pad on the first floor of the estate.
Would you like a cup of tea to warm yourself up before we tour the estate?" Charlotte asked.
"If it's not any trouble to you Charlotte, yes, I would like a cup of tea," Diane sincerely replied.
"Which tea would you like, I have Earl Grey, Passion Berry Herbal, and Green Tea," Charlotte asked.
"I will take the Passion Berry Herbal," Diane responded, "it is one of my favorite teas in Seattle."
"Get yourself real comfortable Miss Grobetts, and I'll be right back with your favorite cup of tea," Charlotte explained in relative calm as she hurried along to the main kitchen of the Pinehurst estate for the brewing process of the perfect cup of tea.
A few minutes later, a knock was heard on the front door of her apartment, Diane thought it was Charlotte returning with the tea; but, as she opened the door, a handsome blonde-haired guy with piercing blue eyes in about his late 20’s appeared in front of her. Momentarily, Diane Grobetts was lost for words, much rather speechless; she endeavored to disguise the startled look on her face but with little success, of course, she didn’t know how else to act, or talk at that given moment.
He began to speak in such exhilarating and welcoming tone, “hello!” he said, in the most friendliest and courteous way possible, “my name is Dr. Michael Bellherg, and I’m a tenant at this estate, are you Diane Grobetts?” he asked politely with happy countenance, and at the same time extended his right hand towards Diane.
“Yes, I am Diane Grobetts, it is quite a pleasure to meet you Dr. Bellherg!”she smiled politely as she extended her right hand and shook hands with him.
“It is an honor meeting you Diane; welcome to the Pinehurst estate,” Michael replied, he gave her another big smile, and then he moved closer to her, and in a very low voice, he whispered, “Diane, I am here to greet you and I also want you to meet somebody special, a close friend of mine who is on his way to meet you tonight.”
Diane was quiet for a while, then she responded “Is he married or is he dating somebody else right now?” Obviously, she did not want Michael to introduce her to somebody married; or being labeled despicably by others as the home wrecker of the century.
“No, of course not,” Michael replied with certainty, “I would not introduce you to somebody that is already taken or married my dear, trust me, you will be the most fortunate young lady in the whole world, ” Michael reassured her, “he is single and very available, and he is not dating anybody right at this moment; you will fall in love with him when the time is right. ”Diane did not utter another word or another question; she completely trusted the doctor’s words of advice.
