Hello crankypants,

I've found three different researchers with Joshua & Sarah RUMBLE and all three have different birth years for the 7 children.

I've searched FreeBMD year by year for given names only and looking at all the "R"s. I think I've managed to find only one:

Births Mar 1841
Rumble William Saffron Walden 12 241

I can't find the marriage so I don't know if it is Sarah LAWS or not.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

I've just found a grand daughter of Emma RUMBLE in my tree married to another BENSLEY, who may be yet another minister. :D

Martha Olive KEMP b. 1894 Canterbury d. ? Ryerson is down again so I can't check :rolleyes:

married 1918 Bellingen

Gordon Stewart BENSLEY b. 1885 Braidwood d. 1944 Sutherland

Are we doing "R" or "B" for Bensley?

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. It's almost a 50/50 bet with those BENSLEYs. This one was not a minister. :eek:

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Richard arrived in 1887 on the 'Port Victor' with siblings and I have no information he may have spent time in WA. Too much of a conicidence both being blacksmiths though. Richard has a brother Charles, two years older, so it is possible.

Hello crankypants,

I omitted John William RILEY's spouse although they married after 1936. Pearl MUTTON can be found in ER 1936 in Cook. She died after 1978 so I don't have her parents yet, or her birth.

Regards,

Dave
