Trying to confirm the name of the minister.

I don't have an image of that one. Being Wesleyan it is one of the registers on film at the Mitchell Library that you are not allowed to copy.
Yes. Wonder what will happen in America now re action against Facebook and Google?

I've never used Bing.

Dunno, Dave.. I've used BING once or twice with edge and predecessor, as I recall it is no where near as good as Google.. I usually try to avoid politics and religion, though some subjects are interesting :)

William Mansby Bennett ??

Three daughters were born in Adelaide, South Australia:

Jane (22 April 1838 – 21 February 1907) married Rev. William Mansley Bennett (1834 – 29 June 1916).

Eliza Hadden nee Morris born Camden NSW ,widow aged 25 living at Ginninderra daughter of Henry Morris and Hannah Cook married on 28.2.1872 at the residence of Thomas Southwell - 'Parkwood', Ginninderra. Henry Gozzard son of Edward Gozzard and Lucy Price born Birmingham England, farmer aged 35. The witnesses were Thomas and Mary Southwell. Rev William Mansley Bennett officiated.

Looks like one and the same so the newspaper is in error with Mansby.
