  • Notes 
    • Frances' parents were Darcy Benson born 29 Aug 1791 Ehenside and christened 24 Sep 1791 Saint Bees and died 3 Jan 1879 Couangalt Gisborne Victoria Australia and buried 5 Jan 1879 in Gisborne Cemetary Victoria. (About 1 1/2 hours drive from Ballarat I guess). Her Mother was Mary Mossop born Eskat and christened 4 Aug 1788 in Ennerdale. She died 10 Nov 1830 in Lamplugh of typhus fever. Family word of mouth has it that an account in the paper (which have been unable to find) stated that five children of the same family were stricken with this disease. Mary died on the same day as her son young Darcy and her daughter Elizabeth died two days later on 12 Nov 1830. It seems Darcy (1791-1879) migrated to Australia in 1853 at age 62 years and lived at Couangalt just outside Gisborne in Victoria with his son William who migrated in 1850.
