Hello Ros, Marie, Claire and All

Thank you Ros.

In 1886 Thomas HOOD BENTLEY gave his address as Burnham Somersetshire [Somerset] and Wife was Camilla Bentley.

Witnessed by Inglis GOLDIE and Edna Jane DENHAM

I wonder if there is any connection to James Goldie HOOD, and Frederick Hood, Brewers, of Hessle, near Hull?

Hi Mark, Ros et al,

Loving this conversation!

Haven't looked at Camilla's family, the Denhams, for many years, but they were a large, obviously close Somerset family.  At least three of Camilla's brothers, Henry, Edward and Digby, came to Australia too, and a sister, Edna.  Digby was actually a Premier of Queensland briefly, albeit a rather unsuccessful one!

Inglis Goldie was a brother in law, having married a sister of Camilla.

I don't know about Goldie Hood, Brewers.  In 1891 Thomas Hood Bentley was in Gateshead with his wife and two children and Edna Denham.  This must have been shortly before he acquired the ship "Earl Cadogan" and started his sailing around the world.

Marie, interesting, a picture of a Bentley's pub?

For HOOD see under Griffin Brewery in the link
Extract ...
By 1846 the brewery had passed to James Hood, a Scot from Dumfries, who also owned a beer house and five inns. Hood ran a beer house and supplied five inns in the district.
