  1. William Bellamy and Anne Faye were my 4x great Grandparents.Hannah and James Bellamy’s daughter Mary Ann Bellamy married James Shields. Their son Samual married Bertha Bowerman. Their daughter Emily May Shields married John Catt. Their daughter is my mother Hilda May who married Joffre Dunn.

    • Hi Libby,
      Thank you for reading my blog. So, you and my husband Greg have James Shields and Mary Ann Bellamy as your most recent common ancestors (MRCA)! Their son George (so Samuel’s brother) is his 2x great grandfather and married Rebecca Clark. I’ve had a look; you and Greg have a small DNA match also. I’d be happy for you to contact me via Ancestry to swap / share information.

  2. Thank you so much for this wonderful information. I am descended from James and Hannah’s daughter Caroline. He is my 4 x grandfather, or 3 x great grandfather. I love the photos. I read in a newspaper clipping that James told Butler not to run, but Butler aimed his musket at James, so James shot him and killed him. So it was self defence…if the papers got it right.

  3. Hi Andrea, Thank you for reading my blog. Who ever knows if the newspapers get everything right but they always make for interesting reading that’s for sure and lead to clues about our ancestors, don’t they!

  4. Ann Bellamy, Zadok’s daughter is my 3G Great Grandmother. I guess that in one way or another, all of the pioneering families of Hills District at all related – Bellamy, Mobbs, Shields, Bevan, Sonter, Kells etc etc
