St. Columb Minor

My own research.

I have info of my own line of KNEEBONEs from the St. Columb Minorarea.

Earliest are William Kneebone = Anne Minnow.....married 16 July1764 at St. Columb Minor.



descendent of the KNEEBONE family of Menheniot, St Columb Minorand St Mawgan in Pyder

James married Mary Ann ROBERTS in St Mawgan in Pyder in 1827 andthey emigrated to Australia, arriving in Melbourne in 1862.




I am interested in knowing whether James KNEEBONE died in NSW -probably at Broken Hill, 1910 to 1920?. James was born at Eaglehawk,near Bendigo in 1881. His parents were William KNEEBONE and RosinaSIMPSON. James married Lillian DURO.

They had three children-




all born before 1908.

I believe James went to work in the mine at Broken Hill with hisbrothers Henry and Thomas. Jame's death is not on the Victorian deathindexes, so any help on this one would be much appreciated.BestwishesChrisy Dennis in Melbourne
