Hi Lynne – Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Just a short note to let you know I’ve decided to commit my family history info to http://www.wikitree.com/
I’d previously considered using the likes of Ancestry etc, but the idea of my info being locked away behind a paywall irritated me. Similarly, paying to host a site for myself seemed unsustainable. So the Wikitree seems like a better option – someone else maintains & manages the site & the info is freely available to all.
I’ve put some of the Bryce info up there – and was quickly contacted by a Pentland researcher from UK who I gather has already been in touch with you.
Have a look. If you are interested in adding to or building on to what I’ve put up so far, send me a request & I’ll add you to the trust group to manage pages.
(I’ve only put up basic info & narrative & a few photos – still to learn stuff like footnotes & citations.)
What a marvellous website! Thanks to you and your researchers for all the information.
I have been researching my husband’s family (descended from Christina Bell and John Quirk) and can add a couple of marriages.
Elizabeth Bell married firstly William Butler Cochrane (no date but died in 1885 Tweed River Dist. age 34). She then married Joseph Walker in 1888 NSW 7237/1888 Tweed River Dist.
Christina married John Quirk 24 Aug 1878 at the home of Thomas Cochrane, Cairns Terrace North Brisbane. The witnesses were William Butler Cochrane and Elizabeth Bell.
Hope this is of use if you haven’t found them already.
Hopefully this will reach you..I think perhaps you are the person that Joan Carter (my aunt) from Woondooma told me about some years ago.. I am one of convict James Bell’s descendants also…my mother was a Bell from Barrington. I would love any information that you have collected or are prepared to share with me..perhaps i may have some little bits of information also that may interest you also…i have been interested in family research since i was a little girl ..so if this reaches you i shall be extremely happy..
MY THANKS ALSO TO THOSE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTORS WHO PREFER NOT TO BE NAMED ONLINE.
Look for the names WILLIAM BELL and GEORGE READY.
So far we have placed John and Normal Bell with their families on the TWEED RIVER. We also have their sister Wilhelmina who married GEORGE DINSEY. There is a MR BELL christian name unknown supervising at ABBOTSFORD MILL( I don’t yet know which mill that was. ) Now a JOHN MCLEOD appears and McLeod is the maiden name of the mother WILHELMINA who came on the JAMES MORAN in 1839. She had other children with her whose names I don’t as yet have.
WANTED to Let, on Clearing Leases, Seven FARMS, of from forty to fifty acres each; fine scrub land; river frontage, Tweed River ¡ eight miles from the Heads. Apply to Mr. JOHN M’LEOD, Condong Plains, Tweed River ; or E. W. S. HAYLEY, Southgate, Clarence River. 2575
The Brisbane Courier Friday 30 August 1872, page 1.
This is 3 years after JOHN BELL acquires his land and 6 years before he married MARY ANN MCNEIL.
And in 1881;
James had been born to John and Mary Ann by this time and Norman was born in 1881.
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article3429862 FROM BRISBANE COURIER THURSDAY MAY 8 . In 1884, Mr T Steel from the CONDONG MILL sent a large series of animals to the QUEENSLAND MUSEUM for nomenaclature.and two of those were included in science and named as follows;
- a tree frog resembling in coloration an American species. Now named HYLA FENESTRATA and
- a fish of the GENUS GALAXUS which was to be described as GALAXIAS BREVIANALUS
The ABBOTSFORD MILL I find in the BRISBANE COURIER 5 AUGUST 1882 was erected near the JUNCTION – the village now called TUMBULGUM. This one did not belong to the massive COLONIAL SUGAR REFINING COMPANY to which CONDONG belonged. It belonged to PRINGLE, SHANKY and CO. Small but enterprising beginners. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article3412851
IN 1886 the schooner CONDONG, of the TWEED RIVER, was carrying logs of beech, cedar and pine into BRISBANE. In the same year a general servant was wanted for the CONDONG MILL at 15s per week.
IN 1889 E DOWLING of Condong won 900 pounds in the TATTERSALLS MELBOURNE- CUP SWEEPS.
And in 1892, the BELLS went south to LAURIETON. Some of the family remained. Wilhelmina Dinsey for one.
AND FROM TUMBULGUM, where I lived from 2002-2005;
The Brisbane Courier Tuesday 12 September 1899,
A correspondent of a New South Wales
top-country paper questions whether the
Hunter district is entitled to the credit of
producing the largest pumpkins. He says :
-” I read an account of prolific pumpkins
in the Hunter. The Hunter may be a won-
derful place for pumpkins, but a neighbour
of mine, at Tumbulgum, lost a sow not long
since. He searched everywhere for several
days without success, and at last came to
the conclusion that she was dead.- But one
day, while riding across his farm, he no-
ticed something peculiar about one of his
pumpkins. He rode over to see, and was
surprised to find his sow. She had eaten
her way into the pumpkin, made a bed, and
had a litter of thirteen young ones all inside
the DEATH OF GEORGE DINSEY http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article3963005
Joyce and Bruce Sanders honeymooned in Urunga at the mouth of the Bellinger River in 1948. In the 1970s Lynne,Susan and Jon as well as Joyce and Bruce and Susan’s daughter Josefine relocated from Belmore in Sydney to Urunga. The Bellinger then became home to children, grandchildren and husbands. Susan married into the POMROY family of URUNGA and Lynne married into the BRAITHWAITE family of Bellingen.

The heat had been intense but was now intermittent with a sky ominously overcast. They had had showers and a thunderstorm had passed over.
The sugar mill mentioned in this article is called the ABBOTSFORD SUGAR MILL but I haven’t so far found another reference to it. Certainly the only Mill on the Tweed now is the CONDONG mill. Down at the TWEED HISTORICAL SOCIETY, there is an image of BELL’s Wharf which I shall purchase next time I am there. When I first looked, I didn’t realise the presence of the Bells in this area. The article in the BRISBANE COURIER of 1877, speaks of field operations and crushing going on ‘ merrily’. They have a complement of 20-25 men and in the field they are supervised by Mr Byrne and in the crushing by MR BELL. I shall approach the Murwillumbah Hospital one day and see whether they have any records that might explain the ‘accident’ which invalided John Bell. This Mr Bell at the mill might or might not be John. It is a year before his marriage to Mary Ann McNeil. There may well have been other Bells here but Norman is not likely to be one of them because his children are being born down south by then.
There was also an ascent being made to the top of MT WARNING to have a display of fireworks on the summit for CHRISTMAS. We seem to be somewhat lacking in vision in 2008. They were making a picnic party of the excursion with several gentlemen from Brisbane expected to attend.

Joshua Bray – (1838-1918) http://www.tweedhistory.org.au/murwillumbah/bray.shtml
ABSTRACT In March 1864 Samuel returned with his wife and child, shortly after them Joshua Bray joined them and they became partners. In 1865 Joshua returned to Tumut and became engaged to Rosalie (called Gertrude). He returned to the Tweed with a carpenter who built him a house of pit saw timber, Joshua named the house, ‘Kynnumboon’, an Aboriginal name for the land on which it was built. Joshua and Gertrude were married in Armidale NSW, they then went by gig to Singleton, train to Newcastle and boat to Sydney for a short honeymoon. They returned to the Tweed going by boat to Brisbane, Qld. and then rode down to the Tweed on horseback.

Sugarcane was first grown in the valley in 1869 as free selectors began to take up land. However, two years later, a visitor noted that the river was covered on both sides by dense scrub with but a few dispersed dwellings. One of the selectors – Joshua Bray (the future police magistrate) – is said to have adopted the name ‘Murwillumbah’ from the local Aborigines. It is thought to describe either a good place for camping beside the river or a good place to catch possums.
The townsite was surveyed in 1872. The post office was transferred from Kynnumboon (just to the north) in 1877, the school was transferred from Tumbulgum in 1878, a courthouse was built and the first bank was established in 1880. The first sugar mill in the area also opened in 1880. A ferry service replaced the punt in 1888. However, settlement remained limited until the railway arrived in 1894 from Lismore via Mullumbimby

WHATEVER it was the BELLs were doing, they are listed as landholders from 1869-1890 , Norman and Agnes have JANET LAURIE and WILLIMINA here in 1871 and 1872, JOHN and MARY ANN have children on the Tweed between 1879 and 1890 and at least JANET LAURIE marries in Murwillumbah in 1898.
JAMES and WILHELLMINA BELL’s children are listed at the time of Wilhelmina’s death 2 March 1903 as;
|NAME||AGE||COMMENTS ON NSW BDM LISTINGS|
MARY’s marriage is listed as 1866 to ALEXANDER J LAWRIE in DUNGOG . DOD Stroud 1918
MARRIES GEORGE DINSEY IN 1865 IN DUNGOG. This would indicate that Wilhelmina was Mrs Dinsey by the time the Bells moved north. Dinsey Creek is between Condong and Tumbulgum. She dies in 1911 in Murwillumbah.
|NORMAN||54||Married AGNES in 1870 at DUNGOG|
|JOHN||52||Marries MARY ANN MCNEIL in 1878 at TAREE|
Listed as an 1880 marriage to MACEACHRAN JOHN IN LISMORE
|ELIZABETH(WALKER)||48||I cannot find a WALKER marrying a BELL as yet but ELIZABETH WALKER does die in 1948 in GLOUCESTER.|
|CHRISTINA(QUIRK)||47||Nor for CHRISTINA as yet but I do have her death In Murwillumbah in 1944 so she was a Tweed woman.|

MURWILLUMBAH married THOMAS MCLENNAN IN TAREE 1914
WILLIAM ALLEN MARRIED JESSIE SARAH READY
NORMAN BELL was the older brother of JOHN BELL wife of MARY ANN MCNEIL. They had adjoining land at CONDONG on the TWEED.
Their parents were JAMES AND WILHELMINA as noted elsewhere. James was the housebreaker transported from Glasgow in 1831 on the YORK and WILHELMINA was the daughter of WILLIAM MCLEOD and JANET MACKAY who came on the JAMES MORAN in 1839. They married in 1839 at MAITLAND when WILHELMINA was 17 years old. Check in the search engine to the right for further details. It appears at this time that the Mcleods and Mackays came as a result of the ruthless clearances of the Sutherland Shires in the HIGHLANDS of Scotland. In the 1860s the BELL boys have land on the TWEED. The NSW BDM records indicate that their father JAMES died in 1859( to be verified). I do not know what brought the boys ( and perhaps more members of their family north from the Maitland Area). Land is also indicated to belong to WILHELLMINA BELL – mother ? sister ? daughter ?
NORMAN BELL was born 1845 and died 15 June 1924 . He is buried in BARRINGTON CEMETERY. His occupations are listed at TWEED RIVER HISTORICAL SOCIETY as farmer/grazier. Whilst on Tweed he was resident at CONDONG. Norman married in 1870 at DUNGOG NSW. His wife was AGNES FRASER HIGGINS and her mother was JANET LAURIE. As my mother used to tell me the BELLS and the LAURIES were ‘tied in somehow”. Her father was JOHN HIGGINS. Agnes Higgins was born at Pt Stephens in 1846 and died in CHATSWOOD, SYDNEY in 1929.

From these dates it appears Norman left the Tweed district by the early 1870s whereas John’s Children are born on Tweed between 1879 and 1890 with the youngest being born at Laurieton in the early 90s. Hmm. A rethink required again.
THE INFORMATION I HAVE IS THAT NO 49 IS JOHN BELL’S LAND . ( YET TO BE VERIFIED AS ONE MAP INDICATES CONDONG AND ONE IS FURTHER ALONG NEAR STOTTS CREEK)

JOHN BELL WAS INJURED IN A CANE ACCIDENT -so we are told- on the Tweed. By 1892 the land at Condong is no longer in his name and John becomes known only as the INVALID MR BELL. The Bells then move to LAURIETON and Granny lives there till her death on Nov 5 1935.

THERE WE ARE ! What a difference one letter makes. Forget the WAVERLEY except for general interest. The ship we are looking for is the JAMES MORAN which arrived in SYDNEY in FEBRUARY 1839.
THE MACKAY FAMILY STORY
The James Moran, a ship of 600 tons, sailed under Captain Ferguson and Dr McNee. It left Loch Inver and Loch Broom, on 21st October, 1838, and arrived at Port Jackson on the 11th February 1839. When it arrived, 210 passengers disembarked, including infants born on the voyage
Most of the 229 passengers on board were clearance victims. They came to Australia under Rev John Dunmore Lang’s Bounty Scheme. 2 people died on the voyage to Australia. The voyage took 113 days, sailing directly to Cape Town, where it arrived 26th December, 1838. 20 passengers left the ship there on New Year’s Day. The Jamnes Moran was apparently lost in the ice of the North Atlantice ca. 1857.
NOTE: “clearance victims”. For those interested – there is an excellent book called “The Highland Clearances” By John Prebbles. One should be able to get it via a library.

TWEED RIVER AT TUMBULGUM NEAR THE BELL LAND.
MT WARNING FROM BILAMBIL.
James Bell’s widow, Wilhelmina Bell (b 1820) did not remarry. She died in 1903 under the name Bell as a widow. She was 83. She was the daughter of William McLeod and Janey McKay. She died on the 2nd March 1903. She married James Bell at age 17 years at Maitland.
At the time of her death her children were:
|Mary (Laurie) 57||Wilhelmina (Dinsey) 56|
|Norman 54||John 52|
|Margaret (McEachran) 50||Elizabeth (Walker) 48|
|Christina (Quirk) 47|
Now John it was who was married to Granny Bell ( Mary Ann Mc Neill) . He had land on the Tweed from 1869 till app 1890 when they went South and Laurieton became the centre of our Bell universe. My own Grandfather Mick Bell ( William Allen) was one of their children. Mick ( Poppa Bell) and Jessie Sarah Ready ( Nana Bell) spent most of their married lives in Redfern and then in TWEEDMOUTH Avenue , ROSEBERY . Coincidence ?
Now in the 21st Century , Lynne Bell Sanders, lives in Bilambil on the Tweed and lived from 2002-2005 in TUMBULGUM which is within 5 kilometres of where the 3 BELLS had their land grants . That was Norman, John and Wilhelmina. Susan Sanders Pomroy lives in Port Macquarie within kilometres of LAURIETON. ( Note that Mary Bell married a LAURIE) .
THE TWEED FROM THE NATIONAL LIBRARY AUSTRALIA NEWSPAPERS DIGITISATION PROJECT.
SYDNEY GAZETTE 1826
It is thought by some, that the river lately discovered by Captain Logan, 50 miles to the South of Moreton-bay, and immediately under Mount Warning, designated the DARLING RIVER, is the same of which the late Mr. Uniacke speaks, in Judge Field’s compiled work on this Colony
Mr.Uniacke accompanied Mr. Oxley in a tour to Moreton-bay, and it appears that they fell in with a bay, or river, to the south of Moreton-bay, to which the name of the Tweed was given, but we cannot bring ourselves to believe that the Tweed and the Darling are one and the same,
