My G Gfa Joseph Binns was born 5/11/1839 in Cowling , son of William and Ann, with two brothers James and John. He came to Australia in the 1850s, married in Vic(Burrumbeet) in 13/12/1864) had 11 children, was widowd in 1894(?) remarried briefly(this is still a bit of a mystery) and died 8/2/1917, buried in Creswick, Vic. After a series of business ventures in rural Vic when he first arrived he eventually became a farmer, first at Creswick , then in the Otways near Beach Forest. He married Esther Whitehand in 1864. I dont have anything on the Cowling area except that Stone Farm Cottage where they were registered as living in the 1841 census, still exists, according to Alan Binns who is part of the Binns Message board and lives near there.Is it possible to write or email direct as I do have a bit more, too lengthy for a message board.
