Mr Gregory

Thank you for your email.

James and Amelia Bignall's children were born before compulsory registration. The Bishop of Newcastle's baptism registers are the source for birth information, and these were transcribed some years ago, overseas, to produce the pre-registration official BDM index. There were many copying errors made by copyists unfamiliar with English names. The early originals were written up by travelling chaplains before the foundation of the see.

My group, by permission of a previous Bishop, has examined the records. All are complete except for Samuel Stanley Bignall (whose page is missing). This is the spelling used by the priest (s) when writing the records - at first by George Middleton (possibly at home, but in the Christ Church books (=Newcastle Cathedral)) , and later, after the foundation of the village of Paterson, by the incumbent there (St Paul Paterson register).

The Manning Pioneer list is quite wrong, as is the Family History group from Maitland. I have the baptism, marriage, census and deatth records for James Bignell of Alverstoke, who married another Amelia, but never left England. Unfortunately these bodies haven't always confirmed information they have gleaned. Bignall descendents, using both spellings, are very common in these districts.

Amelia Kingston arrived at Sydney as a free passenger in the convict transport Southworth, in June 1832. She was with her mother, 2 of her sisters, and brother, who had eventually emigrated to rejoin their father, who had been earlier transported for life for forgery - altering a document. The family was conveyed to Tillimby on the Paterson River. She was baptised 13th Jan 1811 at St Fachtna's Cathedral, Ross (Rosscarbery), County Cork, her parents coming from Burgatia in Ross parish. Her birthday is not known.

Ann Kingston, nee Stanley, Amelia's mother, was originally from Murragh, on the upper part of the Bandon River, and Bandon Grove was named after her death as a memorial.

Amelia's older sisters had married in Ireland before her emigration. We have the records from the Diocese of Cork (nowadays Cork, Cloyne and Ross).

James Bignall's marriage registration (by C P N Wilton, chaplain at Newcastle) ) gives a false age, which has confused many. His true age is known at death, which places his birthday in 1798, probably Oxfordshire, as stated by the court. His father was William. His mother's name is unknown.

Dear Mr Gregory,

One of my computer searches picked up http://stuart.scss.dyndns.info/FamilyTree/individual.php?pid=I17361&ged=Gregory-Hudson.ged recently.

I would like to pass on some corrections. These errors have unfortunately been repeated across several genealogy websites, resulting from some sloppy work by a non-Bignall a few years ago.

James Bignall (sometimes Bignell, but never Bignold) was not born at Alverstoke. That particular Bignell never left the UK and is buried in Hampshire.

James' children were:

Phyllis b 1833 Middlehope (Paterson) d 1908 bur Campbell's Hill James b 1834 Middlehope (Paterson d 1917 bur Upper Coomera, Qld Richard b 1836 d 1905 bur Sutherland Henry b 1837 Allyn River d 1919 bur Manilla Samuel Stanley b 1838 d 1898 bur Upper Coomera, Qld Edward Thomas b 1840 Allyn River d 1901 bur Dungog William b 1842 Allyn River d 1921 bur Dawson River George Septimus b 1843 d 1899 bur Taree Estate Emily Victoria b 1846 Allyn River d 1908 bur East Maitland Joseph (I) b 1846 Bandon Grove d 1847 bur Bandon Grove Robert b 1848 Bandon Grove d 1925 bur Dawson River Isabella Jane b 1852 Bandon Grove d 1926 bur Coopernook Ellen b 1852 Bandon Grove d 1942 bur N Subs, North Ryde Joseph (II) b 1853 Bandon Grove d 1911 bur Lochinvar Alfred Stanley b 1855 Bandon Grove d 1944 bur Sandgate

Some children spelled their name Bignall, others Bignell, and a couple wavered between the two spellings. Bignall is believed to be the original spelling. Bignold has never been used.

There are some deliberately obscure features of James' life, but is probable that he was the ex-convict freed at Paterson in 1824, recorded in the handwritten Newcastle lists as James Bagnall. He was said to have been born in Oxfordshire.

His wife Amelia Kingston was not from Bandon. She came from Rosscarbery on the coast in County Cork. Her father had previously been convicted of forging some commercial paper and was transported. He acquired the Bandon Grove estate on the Williams River, which passed to his descendents.

Regards, G Taylor.

Mr Gregory

Thank you for your email.

James and Amelia Bignall's children were born before compulsory registration. The Bishop of Newcastle's baptism registers are the source for birth information, and these were transcribed some years ago, overseas, to produce the pre-registration official BDM index. There were many copying errors made by copyists unfamiliar with English names. The early originals were written up by travelling chaplains before the foundation of the see.

My group, by permission of a previous Bishop, has examined the records. All are complete except for Samuel Stanley Bignall (whose page is missing). This is the spelling used by the priest (s) when writing the records - at first by George Middleton (possibly at home, but in the Christ Church books (=Newcastle Cathedral)) , and later, after the foundation of the village of Paterson, by the incumbent there (St Paul Paterson register).

The Manning Pioneer list is quite wrong, as is the Family History group from Maitland. I have the baptism, marriage, census and deatth records for James Bignell of Alverstoke, who married another Amelia, but never left England. Unfortunately these bodies haven't always confirmed information they have gleaned. Bignall descendents, using both spellings, are very common in these districts.

Amelia Kingston arrived at Sydney as a free passenger in the convict transport Southworth, in June 1832. She was with her mother, 2 of her sisters, and brother, who had eventually emigrated to rejoin their father, who had been earlier transported for life for forgery - altering a document. The family was conveyed to Tillimby on the Paterson River. She was baptised 13th Jan 1811 at St Fachtna's Cathedral, Ross (Rosscarbery), County Cork, her parents coming from Burgatia in Ross parish. Her birthday is not known.

Ann Kingston, nee Stanley, Amelia's mother, was originally from Murragh, on the upper part of the Bandon River, and Bandon Grove was named after her death as a memorial.

Amelia's older sisters had married in Ireland before her emigration. We have the records from the Diocese of Cork (nowadays Cork, Cloyne and Ross).

James Bignall's marriage registration (by C P N Wilton, chaplain at Newcastle) ) gives a false age, which has confused many. His true age is known at death, which places his birthday in 1798, probably Oxfordshire, as stated by the court. His father was William. His mother's name is unknown.
