Wed 24 Dec 1845
At Eastern Creek, near Windsor, in the Colony o New South Wales, on the 8th December, 1845, Mr . James Web Benn, late of Castle Connell, county of Limerick, Ireland, aged 41 years. He has left a disconsolate widow and a young and helpless family to deplore their loss.

Thanks gibbo.

Didn't have that.

I usually get at least the month before I search for notices.

Not on FS.
Thanks gibbo.

The Benn family is connected to the Blue family and to 'Fred' who was missing for years until I got the certificate = no issue so no Fred junior.
