Hi

Seeking info on Henry Percy Bentley b1860 Emerald Hill Victoria, son of Henry Bentley b1830 and Elizabeth Miller b.1838.

Moved to Fiji with father and brothers and was part of a well-known family on the Rewa. Have been able to find info about the brothers, but little on Henry Percy.

Thanking you

Sean

Thanks Bill. I believe Capt Bentley was Henry's brother.
I also have a copy of the Cyclopedia.

Thanks very much for your reply Dulcie.

I have a copy of the Census, but would really love a copy of the extract from Stewart's handbook if it's not too much bother. That is new information to me.

Many thanks

Sean

Sean,

I'll email you the extracts from Stewart's handbook.

By chance this morning I was looking up the index for Pacific Islands Monthly (the years escapes me) for my own research and I did found an entry for a death notice for Henry Percy Bentley. If you don't already have that, I'll have a look and see if I can access the issue it's in and scan a copy for you.

Please email me: cieart@gmail.com

Regards,
Dulcie

Sean,
I am looking for the parents of Frederick Bentley born abt 1870 in Fiji. He married Marie Emily Cuthbert in Suva, 29th May, 1897.

Do you have a Fredrick Bentley in your tree that fits this man?

Many thanks, Bill

Hi Bill

I have a Frederick Richard Bentley b.~1874, Levuka Fiji in my tree. He was the son of Henry Bentley b.1830-d.1892 and Elizabeth Miller b.1838.

I believe he is the younger brother of Henry Percy. He is also mentioned in the Cyclopedia of Fiji.

Email me sean.mcgowan at bigpond.com and we'll see if we are on the same page.

Yes, hello there Sean. I'm actually trying to find some information on a Harry Percy Bentley. I notice you have Henry Percy Bentley as the name. He lived in Fiji on Rewa Street but passed away coz he was involved in a car accident. Would you be able to shed some light on this matter. Would appreciate it if you could get back to me please. Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm trying to gather information on behalf of my partner who is Harry Bentley's son - Brian Bentley.


Thanks,
Samantha

Hi Samantha,
I went to the Auckland Research Centre today and found a wedding certificate for a William Bentley...son of Harry Bentley.
Would you be interested in a copy?
Cheers
