Thank you heaps majm!

You have helped so much!!!! I emailed the church yesterday, but have not heard back from them yet. But hopefully soon. ;D

That info you found about the two John Bowmans is interesting! Goodness, it would be nice to know which one was mine!!!!!! ??? ;) I'm sure it will all come out soon.

I will look into all the info you have given me, and I will post on here whatever I get back from the church, if they reply.  :)

Thank you again,
Tiani

 :)

Please don't expect an immediate answer giving the information from the original parish register.  It can take time for a volunteer to undertake the lookup  :)

Evans Plains …. BENDALL from Cambridge …. Some speculations to have at hand ‘just in case’ …

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/223580809 NSW Govt Gazette 6 Oct 1874

In the will of George BENDALL late of Evans Plains, near Bathurst, farmer …. Granted to Charlotte BENDALL… 

NSW BDM George BENDALL, parents as Edward and Sarah, death registered Bathurst #3829/1874

Possible: 

George (aged 25)  and Charlotte (29) BENDALL as husband and wife arriving per Castilian in 1858.  George as Ag Lab, from Cambridge, C of E, read and write,  Charlotte of Huntingdon, Church of England, read. 
http://indexes.records.nsw.gov.au/ebook/list.aspx?series=NRS5316&item=4_4795&ship=Castilian
George’s parents recorded on immigration papers as Edward and Sarah LIVING at Bottisham. He has a sister in NSW, Mrs Taylor, Lachlan River. George recorded as born Bottisham.
Charlotte’s parents recorded as John & Charlotte PICKEN, LIVING at Cambridge. Charlotte recorded as born Broughton, Huntingdon. No relatives in NSW.   

Possible 1853 (July-Sept Qtr) marriage
George BENDALL and Charlotte    PICKEN   Cambridgeshire, GRO Vol 3b/725

1867 Walter Samson NSW National Directory

G BENDALL, Mount Pleasant. 
W BOWMAN Richmond

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/223579978 NSW Govt Gazette 11 Sept 1874 … Public School Board appointments…
Evans Plains,  Mr George BENDALL.

Possible 1853 (July-Sept Qtr) marriage
George BENDALL and Charlotte    PICKEN   Cambridgeshire, GRO Vol 3b/725

George BENDALL was buried in the Bathurst Cemetery, aged 42 (transcription has it as 1871)

George and Charlotte’s immigration papers do NOT show any children accompanying them, and I cannot find any NSW births for them either.   Mrs Taylor of Lachlan River … Taylor is one of the most popular surnames in NSW in that era.

more speculations ...

From a SUBMITTED tree (re Mrs Taylor, sister to George Bendall)

Sarah BENDALL, sister of George BENDALL was born Bottisham 14 July 1830, and married 4 November 1852 to Charles TAYLOR.   Polly (Mary Ann Cubis TAYLOR) was born at Bottisham 17 July 1853 and Arthur Seaborn TAYLOR was born on the Washington Irving en route to Australia in 1857, but he did not survive the voyage.    Charlotte Taylor was born at Carcoar in 1859 ; George William Taylor was born 7 July 1861 at Evans Plains, Bathurst; Charles Arthur Taylor born 1863 at Evans Plains; Sarah E Taylor born 1866, Bathurst; Edith Osborne Taylor born 1872 Orange and Maud Mary Taylor born 1876 Orange.

Sarah’s husband died 2 May 1888 at Petersham, and Sarah died Petersham 12 May 1910.   


From my armchair searching online :

Here’s the Washington Irving passenger list for September 1857.  Page 10 shows 1 male death on the voyage.  Remembering that among the single females on this same voyage is a Rebecca BENDALL aged 23, of Fulbourne, Cams,  parents as Charles & Susan (mother at Fulbourne, father dead) C of E, can Read,  and a sister Eliza BENDALL per ‘Vocalist’  and there’s no mention in that paperwork of any connection between the passengers Sarah Taylor nee Bendall and Rebecca Bendall. http://indexes.records.nsw.gov.au/ebook/list.aspx?series=NRS5316&item=4_4794&ship=Washington%20Irving 

Immigration papers show the TAYLOR family,  (mis-transcribed as Paylor) including Sarah aged 27, wife, born Bottisham, Cambridge, parents as Edward & Sarah (living, but surname not on these papers) at Bottisham, C of E, read and write, no relatives in the colony.

Just adding a little to JM's research and as said, in case it is of use in further searchings.

One of the sisters of George BENDALL was Sarah BENDALL born in 1830 at Bottisham, Cambridge .
https://www.familysearch.org/

She married
Marriages Dec 1852   

BENDALLSarah       
TAYLOR Charles Wilden
3b 1175 Newmarket

Here is a In Memoriam for his death in NSW.
http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/13685249

So this would be the Mrs TAYLOR, relation of George per his immigration record.
          
Sue

ADDING
Charles W and Sarah TAYLOR arrived with a 3 year old daughter in Sept 1857 per Washington Irving. He was a farm lab. No relatives in the colony.
