Does this George Binns sound like yours ?

It was taken from DICTIONAY of NZ BIOGRAPHY

George Binns was born in Sunderland, Durham, England, on 6 December 1815, one of 16 children of George Binns and his wife, Margaret Watson.

George Binns senior, a member of the Society of Friends, was a well-to-do draper and George Binns junior worked in the family business until about 1837, when he opened a bookshop and newsagency in partnership with James Williams.

Binns and Williams participated in the growing movement for political reform and in November 1838 they founded the Sunderland Chartist Association. Their bookshop became the town's centre for radical agitation and for the publication and distribution of tracts, handbills and poems, many of them written by Binns. The two young radicals also toured the countryside, holding meetings in support of the Chartist cause, and Binns made a great impression as a forceful orator. 'Williams and Binns', wrote the Chartist historian R. G. Gammage, who knew them personally, 'kept the County of Durham in a perpetual state of agitation.'

In July 1839 Binns and Williams were arrested for sedition, but were freed on bail. Their trial at the Durham assizes did not take place until August 1840, when both were found guilty and sentenced to six months' imprisonment. They had earlier refused an offer of freedom if they pleaded guilty and promised to keep the peace.

When Binns was released from Durham gaol in January 1841, thousands of Sunderland citizens turned out to welcome him home.
In June he was elected to the executive of the National Chartist Association.
He re-entered the drapery business in Sunderland with a new partner, but this venture ended in bankruptcy. He then decided to emigrate to New Zealand to recoup his fortunes, in the hope that he would soon be able to return to England. He left Gravesend on the barque Bombay in August 1842. During the voyage he wrote a 96-line poem on the subject of reform, using the metaphor of emigration to a new land:

Have recently received more info on the Binns family.
Jonas and George parents were Jonas Binns (1826) and Mary Cleary children.
Jonas Binns (1826) parents were Joshua Binns and Martha Benton.
The story that 2 brothers from England came to Victoria and had fight and went separate ways was true after 20 years of research. ( family stories are true).
Their eldest brother William Binns was sent to Tassie for selling stolen candles.He had 13 children in Tassie.The next son Jonas born 1818 died 1826.
Then Ann Binns 1820. Then my Jonas Binns born 1826 Died 1899 in Nhill, Vic, Aust.
Then Joseph Binns born 1821 . died 1893 around Ballarat , Vic.
then their sister Harriet Binns .
My jonas and Joseph during their life in Victoria always lived near each other. So the Binns families of Nhill and Ballarat are related.Through these 2 brothers. Also the Binns families of Tasmania are related to the Victoria Binns families.
