Why not just contact the Binghans at the B&B??

Hi Tony .. The line is rich in royal influence ... one link had also lead through to the Earl of Spencer (Princess Diane) line.  I have traced the my line back through to the Normans via a Richard de Buisli, the family later purchased property at Bingham England then changed surname to de Bingham .... I'm afraid I haven't been able to obtain any photos prior to my own father here in Australia ... I have been in communication with the present owner Colin Mellet at Doolough Lodge, the partner of a descendant of Annie Matilda Bingham who married William Shaw, to see if any archival photos of the kids growing up at the lodge but so far no luck ... Thanks for your info ... may have to go incognito when we explore Mayo Ireland in 2019 ... I dearly want to see the castle's foundation stones and other family infrastructure that may have survived the turbulent times ... again thanks for your input, cheers Bob and Marilyn

Hi Bob

Just been browsing this website for family information and came across this thread. I would also be a GG-Grandson of Arthur Shean Bingham of Doolough Lodge. I had been unsuccessful in connecting him to Major Dennis and suspected something illegitimate somewhere!
Attached is another view of Binghamstown Castle from an old family postcard and a rather faded copy of two newspaper reports of Arthur's assassination from a family album.
Trust this finds you well, and I hope your search has been fruitful.
