William and Sarah came to Western Australia in 1858 with four of their children. More were born in WA.
Initially William looked after some convicts but then became employed by a cattle firm in Toodyay. He eventually arrived in Dongara and set up what became knows as the East End. He had a blacksmith shop and was also a builder.
He is my great grandfather and I have no photograph of him or Sarah.
Greatly appreciate and help.

Looking for descendants of James and Sarah McGlinn.

James and Sarah farmed near Lake Biddy north of Newdegate, Western Australia. A son, Phillip may have remained on the farm of the deaths of James and Sarah. Sarah was a Bond and her second name was Victoria. Bond family referred to her as Aunty Vic.

Looking for Irish connections to Patrick BOND, county Limerick, Ireland

I do not know how or when Patrick BOND arrived in Australia but he did work in Shepparton, Victoria, Australia. He married Sarah HOWELL in 1886 in Shepparton. Sarah was born in Tasmania to free settlers Phillip HOWELL and Winifred Catherine DYER, Spring Bay, Tasmania.

Patrick and Sarah had seven children at Shepparton: Winifred , Mary Ethel, Catherine Lena, Sarah Victoria, George Thomas, Francis Patrick, Norah.

The family moved to Western Australia, exactly when I do not know but Patrick and Sarah are on the 1910 electoral roll for Katanning, WA. Their daughter Sarah Victoria married into the MCGLINN family and lived on a farm at Lake Biddy, north of Newdegate, Western Australia. Nora married an A Meyers. George and Francis enlisted into the army in WWI and but George did not serve overseas.

After the war Francis worked on the main roads in Western Australia and met Ivy May OSBORN/OSBORNE and married in Dongara, Western Australia, in 1925. Francis died in 1939 and Ivy in 1984.

Photograph attached is of Francis Patrick Bond, sitting LHS, and fellow AIF troopers prior to embarkation in 1916.
