There is this one but unlikely to be James.

Births Dec 1849 BENSLEY Male Swaffham 13 273 mmn -

Age in shipping record and age at death for James points to 1848.

Thanks Val.

Mary E is William's 2nd wife. First was one of my Furners.

I've been filling as many gaps as I can from Trove the past few days so perhaps it's best if I just mention some names with details not yet found in Trove.

Oh. I didn't have one of those obits and I didn't know Parkers sisters had married Bensleys.

They are sisters. It's an error with father's name.

Death 26631/1956 BENSLEY ELIZA - FREDERICK CHARLES [error] ELIZABETH CROOKWELL * 25 Aug 1956

Frederick Charles is the husband.

Birth 6610/1867 PARKER ELIZA EDWARD ELIZABETH BERRIMA * 18 Oct 1867

Mary Harriet nee FURNER

Evening News (Sydney, NSW) - Fri 5 Aug 1892 p.7
Crookwell.
August 1.
Death.-I have to announce with regret the death of Mrs. William Bensley, of Westwood Farm, which sad event took place on Wednesday last. Deceased for the past three years had been ailing, so that her death was not unexpected. The immediate cause was severe bronchitis. Much sympathy is expressed with Mr. Bensley and his large family in their bereavement.

So far can't find burial details.
