PAM GOLDING  says her 6 x great grandfather was John Rossiter, yeoman of child Okeford. In his will of 1791 are mentioned his 4 daughters: Mary who married John Monk; Ann who married her paternal ancestor John Crane; Martha widow of James BELBEN and Jane widow of Stephen BELBEN. Ann married John Crane in 1776. Does anyone have any information on Martha and Jane, please?

GWYNETH HOROBIN (from California, USA) says her great-great grandmother was Annie Penny nee Lever or Lock who had a second husband named William BELBIN. Supposedly her parents were from Ireland. She was a head housekeeper and he was the head groom for the brother of the Duke of Alba. William BELBIN was in charge of the polo ponies. There is the possibility of a Wiltshire connection. Can you help? See Gweneth's Horobin Family Tree website.

IAN APPLETON of Auckland, New Zealand identifies his 4 x great-grandfather as Edward Beard who in approximately 1824 fathered James Beard who was born in Brighton, Sussex, England and was in 1851 living in North Wales aged 27. The IGI gives a marriage of Edward Beard and Mary BILVEN at Lindfield, Sussex on 12 May 1811 (The Lindfield Parish Register shows PILVEN) and also shows the baptism of Edward Beard at Lindfield on 22 Sep 1811 son of Edward Beard and Mary BILBEN. Does anyone know of any BELBIN families in the Lindfield area circa 1810?

ROGER GREEN of the Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University of Newfoundland is part of a small group researching a genetic mutation in a group of families who are traced back to James BELVIN who died 30 May 1839 aged 78 years. He is buried in a very isolated community called Baie des Roches on the North shore of the St. Lawrence estuary in the Province of Quebec. He is supposed to have arrived in this region about 1817, possibly from Newfoundland. His sons, although they may be grandsons were called James and John (also known as Jacques). Roger welcomes any insight into this branch of the family.

DAVID SOLLOWS' wife's grandfather was James Curtis BELBIN or BELMAN who came from New Chelsea and Grand Bank, Newfoundland, Canada. He was a captain of a number of vessels including some rum runners during the Great Depression of the 1930s. It is likely that he was none other than James Charles BELBIN who was born 7 Feb 1882 in Seal Cove, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland who was a descendant of William BELLMAN (1750-1807) and Elizabeth Marshall of Newfoundland.  He may have changed his surname to BELMAN because of confusion in mail delivery. He later moved to Halifax and then to Yarmouth and had brothers Absolom BELBIN and Lorenzo BELBIN. Please let David know if you have any news of this family.

JEANETTE DIXON of Casula, NSW, Australia is twice descended from Benjamin BELBIN, a miller (buried 30 Jul 1709) and Elizabeth (buried 11 Mar 1729/30) of Sturminster Newton, Dorset through two different lines which inter-married some generations later in Australia. One of Benjamin's children was Rose BELBIN (1701-1782) who married William Pitt. Jeanette seeks contact with all descendants of this couple.  Other interests include the Pitt and Matcham families of Sturminster Newton, Dorset who link in with the BELBINS.  Jeanette also has a link with the descendants of Christopher Rose and Mary BELBIN, who married on 21 May 1740 at Sturminster Newton, Dorset.

ED BELBIN of 26 Harriet Ave.,Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, USA 01545 is a descendant of William BELLMAN (1750-1807) and Elizabeth Marshall of Newfoundland and is searching for the key to the BELBINS of Newfoundland. It seems BELBINS began to fish and eventually settle in St. John's, Newfoundland about 1740 -50. No data has ever been found to suggest who the first BELBIN (s) was to arrive. Does anyone have access to info in England that would make the Southwest England - Newfoundland connection?
