BEHENNA, POOLE, EVERETT, HILL Connections
« on: Tuesday 25 August 09 20:26 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
I'm looking to get in touch with any descendants of James Poole Behenna born London, England in 1822, also known as James Behenna Poole. He was married to Ellen Moulton and was Head Master of Salisbury Public School from 1867 to 1878. He died in Port Adelaide and Ellen, his widow, died in 1903.

Best wishes, Jimmijam

Hi Cando,
Thanks for replying! I had his mother and father and yesterday I found him on a transcribed court case, he was a Policeman in London in 1842 and the record was on the Old Bailey on line which was really exciting. I had some info on his emigration and name change. As his father and brother were in the debtors court (London Gazette), I suspect that this was the reason for the name change. Its just amazing what you can find on line now!

I didn't know just when he emigrated so thanks for that. A relative of mine had pulled some information on descendants but I certainly had none of the other information about his children or such detailed information on his career. My research prior to this has been mainly in the UK and mainly in Scotland. I really appreciate your post.

Thanks again for this information. I hope that some descendant might read this and get in touch, that would be lovely.

Best wishes, Jimmijam

Thank you for the interesting snippets about the family.  I did wonder about the reason for the name change.   I have found the London Gazette invaluable for my own family research.  I will type up what I can find on the descendants.  You never know someone may be searching for an ancestor and bring up this post/s.

It is disappointing that nearly all of those alive and eligible to vote in 1909 did not enrol.

Hi Cando,

Wow, I am amazed at this work of yours, thanks ever so much!  And thats a great idea, I really hope someone googles these names!  I never thought about listing them for that reason.   Well here's my Behenna line, supplied by the late, great Walt Whyte:

Claude Behenna married 1872 to Jessie Jackson, his parents:
Richard Breay Behenna married 1842 to Amelia Harbrone, his and James's Parents:
Isaac Head Behenna married 1818 to Mary Breay, his parents:
Richard Behenna married 1785 to Elizabeth Head, his parents:
Richard Behenna married 1762 to Mary Collacut, his parents:
Richard Behenna married 1714 to Ann Venton, her parents:
Robert Venton married to Ann Holland

Mary Breay's parents were John Breay and Mary Poole, hence James's middle name/surname!

Richard Breay Behenna was advertising for shares in Bristol, Manchester, London and Dublin in 1853 for the The Cape of Good Hope and Natal Coal and General Mining Company.  I'll attach the advert I found for Friday 7th July 1854 . Whether he was a conman or a victim of circumstance, I don't know but I found a record the following year, 19th May 1855 where he appears before the Court as an insolvent debtor with 7 former addresses.  Richard was held for a time in Horsemonger Lane Gaol and was still listed as Bankrupt by 1863, but I really don't know how the legal system works on this.  He's with his family for the 1861 census, but is missing from the 1851 and 1871 census, though with a name that is easily misspelt, I could have missed it, or was he trying to hide. He died apparently in 1874 aged 55.

Curious that his brother emigrates during this time and changes his name, don't you think?

And sadly, I found a record for James and Richard's mother Mary Breay for 1881 aged 83, Chandelier Maker's Widow, Pauper inmate, Camberwell Workhouse, Havil Street, London, England.

Thank you once again Cando for all your hard work. Its just amazing to flesh out their pasts.
Best wishes, Jimmijam
