Anne Bindon


From on Thursday, 10 June, 2010
Dear Elizabeth,
Re the entry on the Bindon web page for Anne Bindon wed 1854 #1222 to William Studdert Welsh 1879 #3283 aged 55 son of Jane Studdert and Richard Welsh of County Clare, dau lived 5 days and 3 sons Richard Studder Welsh 1855, Edward Jonas Welsh 1861 and William Bindon Welsh 1862, Anne was my great-great-grandmother. As well as the three sons you have named, she had a surviving daughter, Jane Gabbett Studdert Welsh (c1860–1954) who married Daniel Joseph Higgins in Melbourne in 1884. They named their oldest son (my grandfather) Edward Valentine Bindon Higgins (1887–1981). One of his sons, my father, is Keith Bindon Higgins (1926).
My grandfather’s sister thought that Anne Bindon came out to Australia with friends. She and William Welsh were cousins of a sort, and met at the home of a mutual friend in Flinders Street. The Bindons were related to the Bloods and Masseys, and the Studderts owned properties in County Clare including Bunratty Castle.
Anne’s marriage certificate shows that her parents were Francis Henry Bindon and Jane Gabbett.
Records from St John’s Limerick show the following births registered by Francis Henry Bindon:
Nicholas Gabbett Bindon c 8 July 1815
Anne Bindon c 2 July 1818
Hope this is of interest.

From Claire - Edward Higgins (1815–1891) was from Killawillin (then known as Killavullen and other spellings) near Mallow, north of Cork. Edward was 23 when he came out on the Calcutta to Sydney in 1838. He came with his parents Edward/Edmund Higgins (c1789–1866) and Ellen Fitzgerald (died 1843), brothers William (1824–1894) and Michael (1831–1873) and sister Catherine (died 1841). The family were bounty immigrants so the detailed records also give Edward/Edmund and Ellen’s parents’ names. The family came to Melbourne (from Sydney) in 1839 where Edward and Catherine’s wedding (14.11.1841) was one of the earliest at St Francis. I do have that certificate. and their children became known as Ellen Mary (1843–1926), Daniel Joseph 1844, William Sylvester (1845–1905) and Edward Benedict (1848–1906).
