The Age (Melbourne, Vic. : 1854 - 1954) Wed 27 May 1857 p.4
BIRTHS
On the 26th instant, at St. Kilda, Mrs. Robert Bennett of a daughter.

There are only two births in Vic. index in 1857 and not one has father = Robert.

The Age (Melbourne, Vic. : 1854 - 1954) Wed 22 Jul 1857 p.4
BIRTHS
On the 6th July, at 32 Villamanta street, Geelong, the wife of Charles Bennett, of a daughter.

No birth reg for that one either.

There must be lots of Bennett births (and others) missing from 1857.

There is no birth notice that fits 29 Jan 1857 Vic. details from Findagrave.

I can't find a tree.

No birth in Vic. index for Henry Barrett.

This in NSW index but I don't think it fits.

BARRETT HENRY J 871/1854 V1854871 40 JAMES CAROLINE

Can't see a death in NSW for that one. ?

See if any of this helps Dave.

ROCHESTER.
(From Our CORRESPONDENT.)..
Bendigo Advertiser (Vic. : 1855 - 1918)
Tue 19 Dec 1893
A Courageous old Lady.—During the hearing of a charge of indecent exposure, mentioned in a previous paragraph, it transpired that one of the young women molested ran for protection into the shop of Mr. Henry Barrett, whose bakery is near the bridge. Having explained the cause of her terror and her desire to cross the bridge to Mrs. Bennett, the mother of Mrs. Barrett,'the old lady at once expressed her readiness to accompany her over the bridge, and having armed herself with a heavy whip she led the way into town, and it was perhaps lucky for M'Kinnon or any of his class that they did not attempt to interfere with the ladies as they passed. Mrs. Bennett had to return alone, but even then had she been bothered, the probability is that the man would have been even more sorry for his escapade than he now is.

I still can't find the right death for Elizabeth nee Purdue.

I can't find her in 1841.

3x William Bennett in Berkshire in 1841.
