Notes
General:
ur: 78 McBride Ave Wonthaggi. Harold spent only 6 days at Seahaven Hostel Inv. before his death.

According to Harold's mother, he was born with a heart condition and was the first Glaxo (powdered baby food) baby in Australia. He was fed the formula whilst he was in hospital after his birth.

Harold was born prior to the marriage of his mother to John Bonham. On 25 January 2018, with the help of DNA matches with his daughter Nancye and Grand daughter Coral, some good luck and a great deal of research, it has been established that Harold's biological father was in fact a man named Harold Halstead. Further information is being researched at present, but as Coral and Nancye have strong DNA matches with several people down the Wright, Coup and Halstead lines, and Harold Halstead has been placed in the right place at the right time, there would seem no doubt he was Harold Slater Bonham's biological father. FURTHER RESEARCH IS CURRENTLY BEING CARRIED OUT

I can remember Harold Bonham's occupations as Fisherman at Lakes Entrance and Corinella, poultry farmer at Garfield, shop keeper at Iona, Pallet maker at Longwarry saw mill, Caretaker of the Cardinia Creek Boat Club near Koo-Wee-Rup. I can also remember him milking cows on his farmlet at Garfield and putting the milk cans out on the side of the road for the milk factory to collect. Other occupations included Truck Driver, quarryman, soldier.

Harold lived at Burnley until about 1919, Campbellfield, Broadmeadows East, Inglewood until 1930, Moe until 1936, Trafalgar Until October 1936, in Wangaratta working at the filtration plant in 1937, Garfield until March 1940, Jindivick until June 1946, Corinella until June 1953, Poowong for 5 months in 1954, Fish Creek until April 1954, Fish Creek, Iona until January 1956, Lakes Entrance from 1957 until January 1961, Catani February 1961, Scoresby from 1963 to October 1964, the Iona Post Office from 1964 until July 1968, the farm at 14 Mile Road, Garfield from 1969 until October 1972, The Cardinia Creek Boat Club near Koo-Wee-Rup from 1972 until February 1975, the farm at Garfield from 1975 until July 1987, 18 George Street Warragul from 1987 until Aug 1995, 8 Mary Street, North Wonthaggi from 21 August 1995 and finally 78 McBride Avenue Wonthaggi until the time of his death.

Harold was a very private man. He retired when he was 65 and always had a magnificent vegetable garden wherever he lived. At Garfield, then Warragul, and finally at Wonthaggi.

Despite his heart condition, he enlisted in WW2. He enlisted in the Militia Forces in 1932 and gave his address as Post Office Broadmeadows and his occupation as baker. His Army No was 183946. He enlisted in the regular army 28 April 1941 and his number was VX54407. His address at that time was given as Princes Highway, Garfield and his occupation as Quarryman. He was graded as a Group II baker and was sent to New Guinea, and the Middle East, but suffered from serious bouts of malaria and was eventually returned home and discharged. He would rarely talk about his service in WW2 in the 3/3 RAE, with only very scant details being passed on to his family. He never joined the RSL or participated in their activities. In the years before his death, he lived in a small house in Wonthaggi opposite the Cenotaph. On Anzac Day he would walk out to the fence and watch the proceedings, this is the nearest he ever got to participating in Anzac Day.

He was referred to as Pa by all his grandchildren.

Notes
General:
James Bonham married Anne McDonnell at the Belgian Chapel (RC), in the district of St George the Martyr, Southwark, Surrey, in 1846. Their address at the time was given as 65 Wickham Street, Southwark. They were both said to be full age. On the marriage certificate, James' father Edward, was said to be a carpenter, and Anne's father Michael, was said to be a gardener. Witnesses to the marriage were Rachel Reif (?) and John O'Connor.

The family arrived in South Australia on the "Ascendant" in 1849 and spent 20 months in South Australia before travelling to Victoria.

After Anne's death, James married Mary Agnes Jones. The witnesses to the marriage were Bridget Conway and John Bonham. It is assumed that John Bonham was James' brother John, I have been unable to find a death in England of John and it is possible that he died in Australia.

In the case of Budd v. Bonham, heard yesterday at the County Court, the plaintiff sought to recover 49 19s for alleged negligence on the part of the defendant, whereby the plaintiff sustained a serious accident. Budd had been employed by the defendant to paint a portion of the interior of the new Roman Catholic Church at Richmond. Owing to some defect in one of the "putlocks" supporting the scaffolding on which the workmen were standing the platform gave way, and the plaintiff was precipitated from a considerable height to the ground, and was very severely injured. From evidence given, it would seem that when the scaffolding was in course of erection, one of the men engaged in the work pointed out to the defendant the defect in the "putlock" but he was directed to place it and lay another beside it. This was done, and for a time the scaffold was quite secure. It was evident however, that the sound putlock was removed by some one inadvertently, and thus occasioned the accident. Mr Quinlan appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Duigan for the defendant. The latter submitted that there was no case to go to a jury for negligence, the plaintiff having, as was proved, taken all reasonable care and precaution in the erection of the scaffold. His Honour held that there was a case for the jury. After some discussion the further hearing of the suit was postponed until Friday morning.

RELIGIOUS INTELLIGENCE.
..................The foundation stone of the Toorak Presbyterian Church was laid on May 24th, in the presence of a considerable number of people. Up to the present time the denomination have had no place of worship in that neighborhood, and in September, 1873, took the first step towards supplying the want. A suitable site could not be procured until November, 1874, when Mr. J. MacBain, M.L.A., purchased the site for 780 upon which the church is to be erected, and presented it to those who were forming the new congregation. A committee was then appointed, and subscriptions to the amount of 3000 have already been obtained towards the cost of erecting the church. The plot of ground secured is in a very eligible position on the Toorak-road, a short distance beyond the late vice-regal residence. Messrs. Reed and Barnes are the architects for the building, and have furnished a very handsome design, the style being early English, cruciform in plan, the nave being 72 feet by 28 feet, and the side aisles 6O feet wide, divided from the nave by piers, columns and arches. Accommodation is to be provided for 450 persons, and the total estimated cost is 5500. The portion now being built is the nave and side aisles as far as the transept. The tower will not at present be carried higher than the first story, 32 feet. This portion will afford sitting accommodation for 250 persons. The contract for these works has been taken by Mr. James Bonham for 2648. At the ceremony on the 24th May, the Rev.D.S. McEachran read a portion of Scripture, and a short address was given by the Rev. Dr. Cairns. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Dr. Macdonald; and Mr. Jas Kirkland, the secretary of the church committee, stated what steps had been taken, from the first meeting in September, 1873, to the present time, for the formation of a new church in Toorak, He also stated what documents were to be placed beneath the foundation stone. Mr. Thos. Bailey then presented a silver trowel to Mr. W.Boyles, M.L.A., who then proceeded to lay the foundation-stone and said he was sure all those present would wish that the church of which they were laying the foundation-stone would be the means of advancing the Christian cause, and he regretted that Mr. Jas. MacBain, who had so liberally given them the site, as well as a handsome subscription, for the new church, was absent. They were aware that Mr. MacBain had also undertaken to select a minister for the church, and he was sure all present would hope that a suitable gentle man might be selected, for if that were done a large congregation would be gathered in the church they were about to erect. He thanked those present for their attendance, and asked them all to join, in wishing prosperity to the Toorak Presbyterian Church. Dr. Bromby, on being called on, expressed his sympathy with the ceremony he had witnessed. The proceedings then terminated.

The plaintiff made an offer to erect the staircase on certain terms that were not accepted, and he made another offer July 24 1879-"I hereby agree to prepare and erect a stairs at the National Bank, Prahran, finding all labour and materials except blackwood newell, rough brackets, and carriages and base mouldings; I also agree to lay landings, Mr. Bonham finding materials for same for 50 sterling." After the staircase had been partially built some disputes arose, and a correspondence extending over a couple of months took place. Eventually the defendant removed so much of the stairs as had been erected, alleging that they were not according to specification, and that the architect objected to them. At the trial evidence was tendered for the defendant to prove that plaintiff before his offer was accepted, verbally agreed to do the work to the satisfaction of the architect. This evidence was objected to and rejected. The judge gave a verdict for plaintiff for the amount of 49 19s, with costs, and the defendant appealed on the ground that the judge had improperly rejected the evidence tendered, to show the terms on which the plaintiff's offer had been accepted.

Mr MacDonnell, for the appellant, contended that the evidence was improperly rejected. As a rule, of course verbal evidence could not be received to vary a written contract, or if an offer made was accepted simpliciter, verbal evidence could not be allowed to introduce a new term into the offer. But here the evidence was offered to show the conditions on which the offer of a plaintiff was accepted. He Cited ..................... [various examples of previous cases].

Mr Hodges contended that the contract was contained in the plaintiff's proposal and that no verbal evidence should be adduced to alter it.

The COURT held that the evidence rejected was admissible. The plaintiff accepted the terms of the letter verbally. The defendant was at liberty to state what took place on the occasion of the contract being accepted; it was for the jury to say which side they believe.

(Before his honour Mr. Justice Barry and Special Juries of six)
Brophy v. Bonham.
Mr Higinbotham and Mr. Hood for the plaintiff, Mr. Billing Q.C., and Mr MacDonnell for the defendant.
This is an action by James Bonham a carpenter, against H.F.Brophy, a contractor to recover the sum of 49 on a contract to erect a staircase, at the National Bank at Prahran. The defendant had a contract for building the bank, the work to be performed to the satisfaction of the architect. He entered into a sub-contract with Brophy to erect the staircase, and the plaintiff initialled all the items of the principal contract relating to the staircase, but did not initial that part of it relating to the work being done to the satisfaction of the architect. After Brophy had done the greater part of the work relating to the staircase, the architect objected to it, and Bonham had to comply with his requirements in relation to it. The plaintiff refused to make any alterations, and he contended that the work was done in accordance with the specifications. Plaintiff thereupon refused to pay him, and the sub-contract was stopped. The case was originally tried in the County Court, when a verdict was given for the plaintiff, but on appeal to the Supreme Court a new trial was ordered on the ground that certain evidence tendered for the defendant had been improperly rejected.

The jury, after deliberating about three quarters of an hour returned a verdict for the plaintiff, damages 25.

Casualties and offences
On Wednesday last, a man named Joseph Holmes, in the employ of Mr. Bonham, Contractor, Richmond, had a very narrow escape from serious if not fatal injury. He was doing some repairs to the machinery, when his clothes caught on the shaft, and he was hurled round and round. Fortunately his clothes gave way, and he fell to the ground unhurt, except for the severe shock and a few bruises and scratches.

METHODIST LADIES' COLLEGE.
Some time ago we gave an engraving of this institution. We now quote from The Argus the following interesting description of the building and the institution as a whole : Undoubtedly the finest educational establishment of its kind in Australia is the Methodist Ladies' College, now in course of erection at Hawthorn, and rapidly approaching completion. From an architectural point of view, the edifice is an extremely handsome one, but while its magnitude and completeness make it a handsome and substantial proof of the energy and liberality of the denomination through whose influence it has sprung into existence, the special object for which it was founded renders it still more worthy of notice. Some time ago the authorities of the Methodist denomination, finding that the institution already established by them for the education of ladies failed to meet the requirements of the body, decided to erect something worthy of being called a ladies' college. After mature consideration they wisely determined to keep pace with modern improvement, and indulge the tendency existing towards the spread of religious tolerance and a reciprocal spirit between the various denominations by establishing a college, not only for the education of ladies attached to their own denomination, but for those of all other sects who might desire to avail themselves of the special advantages they had decided to offer. Accordingly it was agreed that while in order to give a guarantee of the character and management of the institution its president should always be a Methodist clergyman, the system of education adopted should be scriptural and modern, but not denominational. The desire, in short, was to found in the interests of high-class Christian education an establishment which might provide for girls the benefits which the numerous collegiate schools of the colony offer to boys. The college is accordingly being built, fitted, and furnished, without regard to commercial principles, and solely with the desire of furthering the object held in view from the commencement. Another, and a very important feature in the college is an idea borrowed from similar institutions in America, viz., the establishment of a department for training girls, no only in the arts of refined domestic life, but qualifying them for the pursuits which are now opening up for the sex in so many different directions. The result of this new departure is an institution combining the discipline and work of a college with the genial atmosphere and comfort of a home. As regards the building and its surroundings, the site chosen for its erection is a gently sloping area, bounded on one side by the Glenferrie-road, and on the other by Parker-street. The building occupies a commanding position on the upper portion of the slope, and from the balcony in front a beautiful view is obtained of the whole of the picturesque suburb of Hawthorn, which appears doubly attractive as seen from this eminence. Away on the right the summits of the more lofty spires and towers of the metropolis catch the eye, together with the shipping at Sandridge and Williamstown, and a fine stretch of the waters of the bay right down to Arthur's Seat. The large space in front of the building will be laid out according to a design already chosen, and planted with ornamental flowers and shrubs, the situation affording ample scope for the talents of the landscape gardener. To the right of the building, and on the upper end of the grounds, a portion of land has been levelled and laid out in several lawns for tennis and croquet. The position is a very healthy one, affording excellent opportunities for a thorough system of drainage, and as far as health considerations are concerned could not be surpassed. The completed design of the building shows a handsome edifice, the estimated cost of construction of which is about 20.000. It is being built in sections, the left wing and principal tower not being included in the present structure, but these will subsequently be erected as required. When complete the building may be entered from two points, the present front entrance beneath the smaller tower and the main entrance at the larger tower on the left wing. This large tower will, when erected, contain the principal architectural points of beauty in the building. The college is well lighted by a number of large double windows in front and at either end. As regards the interior everything has been designed with a view to comfort and carried out in a complete manner. Immediately to the right on entering and passing through the reception hall, the president's suite of rooms is situated, these being in the front portion of the building, and faced on the opposite side by the music rooms. To the left of the present main entrance a door opens into the large schoolroom, a lofty, well ventilated and lighted chamber, the area being 45ft. s: 30ft. It is provided with the most modern improvements, a system of electric bells being the chief feature. The main schoolroom is connected with a suite of class rooms in the rear by doors opening into each, these, with the schoolroom, occupying the whole of the right wing. On the opposite side of the passage, running from the main entrance to the rear, and behind the president's apartments and the music rooms, a large open space is being converted into a conservatory, with a fountain in the centre. On the first floor and immediately above the schoolroom, the largest dormitory, a very handsome chamber of the same area as the room below, but ornamented by a handsome ecclesiastical roof instead of the ordinary ceiling, is situated. It is flanked by smaller dormitories and a fine suite of bathrooms fitted with handsome and valuable enamelled baths, these being a modern specialty. On the opposite wing the private apartments of the teaching staff of the college are fixed. The second floor, or dormitory story, consists of part of the smaller tower and an abutment to right of the entrance, and has been converted into a double suite of dormitories, from the windows of which a magnificent view is obtained for many miles in a southerly direction. This floor has also a complete system of bathrooms. The scholars' entrance to the portion of the building already described is by an asphalted pathway fronting the recreation grounds and dining-.hall. What may be called the domestic part of the establishment is a wooden building at the rear of the left wing, and invisible from the front. The main feature of this part of the institution is the spacious dining-hall, 40ft. x 25ft., at one end of which the college library, the gift of a number of gentlemen interested in the welfare of the institution, is placed. This portion of the building also contains the storeroom, kitchen, pantries, and other similar apartments, which, though less interesting than the main portion of the building, all serve to show the elaborate manner in which everything connected with the establishment has been carried out. In order to render the institution independent of the failure or deterioration in quality of the Yan Yean water, provision has been made for storing all the water coming from the roof of the building. The play-ground is shut out from view of the road, and also the yards at the back, by high picket fences, the grounds being enclosed by a similar structure. The cost of the portion of the building now being erected is 12,000, including the fittings and furniture, the latter being supplied by Messrs. Robertson and Moffat, who are carrying out their portion of the work in a very complete and elaborate style, while the main portion of the building is being pushed forward by the contractor, Mr. James Bonham, who has likewise performed his duties in a thorough manner. The Rev. W. H. Fitchett, B.A., the president of the college, has also worked energetically in hastening forward the completion of the building, and on the 1st of May students were formally enrolled, as on this date the second term for the year commenced. The opening of the college could have been conveniently postponed until a later date, but the necessities of tuition demanded that the building should be brought into immediate use, a large number of pupils having already entered at the college. The formal opening of the college will take place some time during the winter.

According to the back of a family photograph, Jim took a party of "government men" into the outback searching for Lasseters gold mine, this was most likely James John Bonham Jnr.

Family lore states that the sisters were nicknamed Annie, Nanny Cissy, and Tissy.

Notes
General:
I have been unable to find the whereabouts of John and Matilda in the 1861 Census and John in the 1871 and 1881 Census of England. In the 1881 census Matilda says she is the wife of a shipwright, but in the 1891 census she says she is a widow, so presumably John died somewhere between 1881 and 1891, however, I have not been able to find a death that corresponds.

The witness on the marriage of James John Bonham to Mary Agnes Jones in Melbourne in 1860 was John Bonham. It is possible that this is the same John Bonham. As most of the siblings came to Australia, I assume that John may have done so. I have been unable to find a death in England for John Bonham, despite the fact that John's wife calls herself a widow in 1891 census. I have found the death of a John in Melbourne in 1918, with parents and wife names unknown, however the age given on the death certificate would have made that John born approximately 1840. The death certificate states that John Bonham's address was 33 Barry Street, Carlton at the time of his death. Further research will be required to ascertain if this the correct John Bonham.

Another possibility is a John Bonham,

Birth records
John Stanislaus Bonham was born at 35 Catherine Street Richmond, November 13 1871 at 10.55pm.
Baptized at St Ignatius Church Richmond on November 25, 1871. Mr Fitzgerald and Jessie Jones being God Father and God Mother (The latter being Aunt of the child)

A family story that has been handed down is that John was in Western Australia at the time of his mothers death. A message was sent to him and he began his journey home, but his motorcycle broke down and he suffered from heat exhaustion. He was found unconscious and was hospitalised, but was unable to return home before his mothers funeral took place. His sister was living in western Australia around the time of their mother's death.

John's occupation was carpenter.

His first wife Kathleen Rogerson drowned in the Maribyrniong River. An inquest was held into her death.

There are photos of John & Catherine who had a gold mine at Inglewood Victoria, but I have no information on dates. On the rear of the photo Catherine has written "our mine at Inglewood when flooded. John & Catherine Bonham."

John applied for a patent for "improvements in pumps" in 1902. At the time of this application his address was given as 79 Rowena Parade Richmond and his occupation was given as miner.

John was cremated in Brisbane.

St Ignatius' schools, Richmond
The midwinter demonstration of large primary schools attached to St. Ignatius' Roman Catholic Church, Richmond, was witnessed last night by a crowded audience, composed of the friends and relatives to the children. Every part of the boys' schoolroom was occupied. The Very Rev. A Sturzo, superior-general of the Jesuits of Australasia, presided, and the Rev. J Mulhall, S.J. pastor in charge of the Richmond district was also present. A lengthy programme, illustrating the musical elocutionary, and dramatic ability of the children, was carried out under the direction of the Rev. J. Kennedy, S.J. Subjoined is the list of prizes, which were presented to the successful children at the midwinter examinations by the chairman:-
................................
Girls:
Drawing- First, Teresa Bonham;.......................


Teresa is mentioned in her parents Probate documents, but no further information can be found about her.

The Kruse sisters remember being told by their grandmother that one of the sisters died young of breast cancer, and they believe that this was Teresa. I have been unable to find birth or death for her, but she is mentioned in her mother's probate documents in December 1899, and also received a disbursement of 75 from her mother's Estate in December 1900.

Teresa Ignatius is mentioned as deceased in the death notice of her sister Mary Agnes in 1941, but a death for her has not been found to date.

This is a possible related article, but unproven.

ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH
Sister Bonham Farewelled
Last Wednesday evening the senior Fellowship at St, Andrew's, celebrated their first anniversary at a birthday tea. The happy function took place in an appropriate setting, in the kindergarten room of the Memorial Hall, where the good things were spread, and sixteen members including Rev. Emlyn James sat down to do them justice. The birthday cake, on which was placed one candle was made by Miss Chisholm and cut by Sister Bonham.

Following this, the Sunday School teachers co-operated with the Fellow ship members to entertain the Women's Missionary Association at a social evening, probably one of the most successful held in the School hall. A short session of community singing commenced the proceedings after which a number of lively games and contests were heartily entered into by all. The coldness of the evening was not noticed through participation in the various novelties. Before supper was served, occasion was taken to save words of farewell to Sister Bonham, a teacher of the Sunday school for four years and a member of the Fellowship since its in inception. Mr A. C. Baillie, superintendent of St. Andrew's S.S., in handing a cheque as a parting gift from the members of both organisations, expressed the regret of all at the departure of one so capable, enthusiastic and devoted as Sister Bonham, She efficiently carried out her labours of love he said and was held in affectionate regard by pupils, teachers and Fellowship members. Their very best wishes were extended with the hope that the future held much good and happiness in store.

Rev. Emlyn James also added words of appreciation for loyal service rendered by their guest, and handed her a book as a further expression of their high esteem. Sister Bonham in responding, thanked all for sentiments expressed, as well as for their gifts. The singing of "Auld Lang Syne" brought a most enjoyable evening to a close.

ST. ANDREW'S CHURCH
The Fellowship Association, in the course of its report, stated: During this year we have 'lengthened our cords and strengthened our stakes.'
Early in the year we applied success fully for affiliation with the Union of New South Wales. A Junior Girls' Circle has been formed, and, led by Miss Taylor, holds a meeting each Sunday morning at 10 o'clock. During the evening of our first birthday tea Sister Bonham was presented with a cheque as a farewell gift from the Sunday school and Fellowship Association. She had taken a keen interest in both of these organisations, and is missed very much. A badge dedication service made a memorable day of 7th November. Miss Taylor gave a splendid talk on 'The Badge,' and what it means. Mr. Les. Campbell chose and road a suitable passage from Scripture. Mr. Price, the Director of the Welfare of Youth, gave a very inspiring address. Twenty members from the junior and senior circles were presented with badges. Our weekly meetings are a source of true fellowship.

We have studied the subjects given in the 'Witness,' our fellowship paper. Mr. James gives us a few guiding thoughts about each subject, after which various members render prepared assignments, then general discussion is invited. We all come away with a feeling of uplift. Our thanks are due to our worthy leader for his great help.
The report of St. Andrew's Sunday school referred to improved attendances and evidence of deeper interest.
A record year in offerings was recorded.
Reference was made to the loss of Sister Bonham, a most loyal and enthusiastic teacher and leader of the junior
department, she having volunteered for the Australian Inland Mission.
