Thank you for your help ... unfortunately the Major Denis I'm after was the father of the Anne who married the Robert Augustus 's (his brother Henry's son) ... the families did live at Bingham Castle. I believe Major Denis birth has to be around 1760 ish ... Shaen family was two generations prior to Major Denis (his grandfather John (about 1738 married Francis Elizabeth Shaen - heiress to Shaen Estates)

Strange that Denis' Wife gets no mention on Pedigree!! You say he had 2 daughters but Pedigree shows Ann and "Other Daughters" implying more.

His father married Letitia Daly Dec 1761, 1st son John b. 1762, and Denis was 3rd son so b.1765ish

Grandfather John   married Francis Elizabeth Shaen 1 June 1738

Plenty of reports about the 1833 court case most of which mention "... William Bingham, the son of Major Bingham, who can never be his heir-at-law... ".
An exception is The Roscommon Journal & Western Imperial Reporter which mentions "... Major Bingham and his natural son Wm ...". It also mentions "... Major Bingham is a Protestant, William Bingham is a Protestant ...".

Out of interest is this the Major Bingham that fought a duel with a Mr O'Donel in 1801?

Thanking you all so far ... Major Denis was prominent to having duelled with many ... I believe the "Major" was a stretching of the truth in army service. Its amazing that there are holes in the documents on Denis's wife, birth details on William details on Bingham Castle (I am also still trying to find photographs of it)
I have sent a letter to the present owner of Doolough Lodge to secure more information on life and times of Arthur and grandfather Robert John... again thanks from OZ

Only grass covered foundations remain, but is this a drawing of it? Binghamstown Castle.

Well he got house in Tuam, didn't go to Erris until he was 30 and probably either married or had children "somewhere". She ,ay have been a commoner and not worthy of a mention.

He was in Military.... but where??

Thanks for the picture Hallmark ... had only the sketch Sinann displayed. The picture looks about 1920 by the model of car and a bit boarded up ... are there any others .. interior or furnishing etc ... probably a bit much to ask ... was this picture one of a series or part of an article?
Thanking you Hallmark and Sinann... another piece for the jigsaw

(Posed question about the duel having seen several newspaper references and then finding a description by the O'Donel side)
