Hello,

Death # 1937/B038307 Bond William Henry - Richard Winsley Bridget Farrell

Pine Rivers District Cemeteries Queensland
William Henry BOND, died 17th January 1937 aged 81years.

I'm looking for the marriage of Richard Winsley BOND & Bridget FARRELL.

I can't find it in NSW or Qld. or England.

I'd guess the marriage would have been around 1850 so well within civil registration period.

The Queensland death reg usually put a note saying born England or Scotland xx years so I'm not sure where it took place.

This is just one of dozens of marriages I can't find.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

The name Bridget Farrell suggests she is Irish or of Irish extraction. I take it you have not found where Richard and Bridget were born?

Hello Ben,

Judging by the death reg it would seem both were born in Australia although I doubt that.

I have not found the marriage or a birth for either anywhere.

Yes, Bridget FARRELL does sound as if she or at least her parents were born in Ireland.

No sign of any of them is shipping records so far.

Regards,

Dave

I worked out William would have been born about 1856 so his parents about 1830.

Wisley is probably a family name hence Richard's middle name.

The only thing I have found is a reference in an Irish newspaper in 1813 for the sale of a religious pamphlet at various establishments including James Winsley BOND, Edgeworthstown. (Co Longford).


...recruited in southern England by a wealthy Anglo-Irish land-owning family (read Protestant) named BOND in the counties of Longford and Westmeath in central Ireland. The BOND family originated in Dorset and came to Northern Ireland, via Yorkshire in the 1650s.In about 1720 a Reverend James BOND (1692-1762), who married Catherine Wensley of Co. Donegal, arrived in Edgeworthstown, Co. Longford and founded a Presbyterian Church in nearby Corboy, where he ministered for 40 years, the buildings of which have been completely renovated within the last
year. Other siblings and relatives of the Reverend also moved to the Counties of Longford and Westmeath...

I've searched on the FamilyHistory pilot site and found nothing yet that helps.

I've also searched the Irish and English newspaper archives.

I think I can add this to my list of Irish brick walls.
