     Gordon Allan Dunbar in 19 Hammond Ave, Croydon, New South Wales, sent a letter dated 25 August 1960. H. Paine, Esq.
405 Argyle Street,

Dear Mr. Paine,
Through Mr. O.L. Peek, who is a friend of Mr. Kenneth
Crocker of Macquarie Street, Sydney, and also a friend and
business associate of myself, I learned that you were particularly interested in the local history of Moss Vale, I have therefore taken the liberty of writing in connection with the following personal matter.
I am a direct descendant of Lieut, Frederick Dunbar who came to Australia in the first instance with the 39th Regiment of Foot, and have recently been going through some of his papers.
Among them 1 found a letter wiich runs as follows:-
"Brigade Office,
Sydney, 8th March, 1839.
I am directed by the Lt-General Commanding to
desire that you proceed to Headquarters by the first
convenient opportunity that may offer from the River
Hunter, it being in contemplation to appoint you
magistrate at Bong Bong. You will leave the detach-
ment at present under your Command in charge of the
Sergeant. D/y.Asst.Commanding General Stafford will
furnish you with an order for your and your servants
baggage on shewing him this letter.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble Servant,
J*C. (name indecipherable)
Major of Brigade"
To/ Lieut. Dunbar,
39th Regiment#

What I would like to know is if there is any local record of his ever having acted as Magistrate at Bong Bong, and if so was his "reign" good, bad or indifferent!!
Unfortunately, many of the family records of this time were lost or so badly mutilated in a shipwreck that we have no authentic information regarding the Bopng Bong appointment. The family tradition, however, is that he was appointed either to Bong Bong or some other southern station and left Sydney with a troop of Eight Horse, etc, etc.
My great grandfather (the subject of my enquiry) was appointed Captain in the 39th Regt in 1840, returned to England in 1841, sold out his commission in 1841, and returned to Melbourne in 1842.

I hope you do not feel that I am presuming on your kindness in asking your help in this matter, but I am sure you appreciate my natural interest in trying to clear up this item of old family history. For better or worse the old tradition still runs in our family. My brother graduated at Duntroon in 1919 and I proud to have been one of the first war "mob".
Please be assured that any Information you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Yours sincerely,
(G. A. Dunbar).

Gospatrick Dunbar 1st Earl

(before 1069 - 23 August 1138)
      Gospatric, who in one place calls himself Earl, and certainly held the rank and place of Earl or ruler of Lothian, does not appear on record until after 1100, the year of the accession of King Henry I of England, and his earliest mention in Scottish writs is in 1119. Another peculiarity about his designation is that during his lifetime he is never but once, by himself, in a charter to the monks of Coldingham,' styled Earl in Scottish charters. He is referred to, whether as a witness to charters, or a granter or recipient of charters, in nearly every case as Gospatric, brother of Dolfin. In 1119 he is a witness to the charter to the monks of Selkirk, and to. the Inquisition of the see of Glasgow, as well as, later, to the foundation charter of Scone. He has also the same designation in the first grant to Holyrood. These are the chief references to him during his life in Scottish records, and while he evidently held a high position, he is never styled Earl until after his death.
King Henry I also in a charter of unknown date, but certainly some time after 1100, conferred upon him, as Gospatric, brother of Dolfin, a large tract of land lying between Wooler and Morpeth, in Northumberland. This extensive grant, which was confirmed at York about 1136, was held, not by knight's service or other service usual from a barony, though it is sometimes described as the barony of Beanley. It was held in grand serjeanty, the Earl and his descendants being bound to be 'inborwe' and 'utborwe' between England and Scotland;' that is they were to be security for persons passing to and fro between the two countries who would not be allowed to travel north or south without permission of the lords of Beanley a fact which practically gave to the Earls of Dunbar the important position of Wardens on both sides a the East March.
From another important English writ it appears that Gospatric, besides the lands named, held the adjoining territories of Bewick and Eglingham, of which he received a grant in feu farm from the abbot of St Albans, by a special contract, dated between 1097 and 1119, and which were afterwards held by Edgar, a son of Gospatric.
Earl Gospatric granted, probably towards the close of his life, the lands of Ederham, or Edrom, and Nisbet, to the monks of Coldingham, imprecating spiritual penalties on any who should interfere with the grant. He also gave the church of Edlingham in alms to the Abbey of St. Albans. He endowed the church of St. Nicholas of Home, in Berwickshire, his wife and family consenting to the gift.' He joined his kinsman King David I in the latter's invasion of England in 1138,' and commanded the men of Lothian at the battle of Cowton Moor, near Northallerton, otherwise called the battle of the Standard, fought on 23 August 1138. At least no other person could be described as the 'summus Dux Lodonensium ' who led them to the field.' The Scots were defeated, and the leader of the Lothian men was slain or severely wounded by an arrow. Whether this were Earl Gospatric or not, he was certainly dead before 16 August 1139, when King David I confirmed the grant of Edrom to the monastery of Coldingham.' The seal attached to his charter of Coldingham is round, one inch in diameter; an equestrian figure holding a sword slanting over his shoulder in his right hand. The legend is broken and defaced, but enough remains to show that it must have read, 'SIGILLUM GOSPATRIC1 FRATRIS DOLFINI.
The name of the Earl's wife has not been ascertained.
. Gospatrick Dunbar 1st Earl was born before 1069. He was the second son and younger brother of Dolfin.. He was the son of Gospatrick Earl of Northumbria.
He was living in 1115 when seems to have been a signatory to the charter of Scone by which the Abbey of Scone was founded.
The People fo Medieval Scotland website states: Cospatric (or Gospatric), was the youngest son of Cospatric, earl of Northumbria, who was given lands in Lothian by Mael Coluim III. He first appears in c. 1120 and is usually referred to as 'Cospatric, brother of Dolfin'. He had another brother, Waltheof (Waldeve). Cospatric was first earl of Lothian (later Dunbar) and had been confirmed in lands in Northumbria by King Stephen in early 1136. His wife is unknown, but he had four sons: Cospatric, who succeeded as earl of Lothian (d. 1166); Adam; Edward; Edgar; and one daughter, Juliana, who married Ralph de Merlay, lord of Morpeth. Juliana and her husband founded Newminster Abbey. Cospatric is said to have died at the Battle of the Standard (22 August 1138), though he was certainly dead by 16 August 1139. A. McDonald, 'Gospatric, first earl of Lothian', ODNB, xxii, 1034-35; [] Handbook of British Chronology, 506: He once styled himself earl..
     Gospatrick died on 23 August 1138 in Northallerton, Yorkshire. He was slain at the Battle of the Standard at Cowton Moor, near Northallerton.

Gospatrick Dunbar 2nd Earl

(before 1138 - between 1156 and 1166)
      He made donations to the monastery of Kelso for the patronage of the churches of Home, Lambden and Greenlaw. Founded the Cistercian convents of Coldstream and Eccles, co. Berwick and was a liberal benefactor to the Abbey of Melrose.
Gospatric, son of Gospatric, succeeded his father in the Scottish territories and in the serjeanty of Beanley, in Northumberland, comprehending the lands there, already enumerated. In 1160-61 he paid to the English Exchequer 12 marks for six knights' fees, for which apparently he had commuted the service due from Beanley.' But his chief interests lay in Scotland, especially as the manor of Edlingham passed to his brother Edward. Accordingly we find his chief grants to religious houses to be in Scotland, and on his seal, noted below, he styles himself of Lothian, or Earl of Lothian. He granted to the monks of Melrose, Hartside, and Spot, near Dunbar, and to Kelso the churches of Home and Fogo and also confirmed the grants of Edrom and Nisbet, made by his father to the monks of Coldingham, and his name occurs in various charters relating thereto.' The chief event commemorative of this Earl Gospatric was his founding, apparently towards the close of his life, a nunnery at Coldstream, at a place where apparently there was already a small religious house. He granted to the 'sisters of Witehou' certain lands in Lennel and Birgham, while his Countess Derdere and other proprietors, with the Earl's consent, also gave land, with which endowments the nunnery began, its site being at the junction of the water of Lect with the river Tweed. This Earl is also said to have founded a nunnery at Eccles, but though such a house was instituted there in 1156,' there is no certain evidence as to the founder.
Earl Gospatric died in 1166, leaving a memory of good works,' and was succeeded by his eldest son.' His seal bears an equestrian figure, wearing a conical helmet, carrying a kite-shaped shield, and with a sword held over the shoulder in his right hand; legend, "+ SIG. L. GOSPATRICI .. LONEE." On the reverse is a secretum
Gospatrick Dunbar 2nd Earl married Derdere Unknown (Dunbar). The Christian name of the Earl's wife was Derdere, but her surname and parentage have not been ascertained. She may have been the proprietrix of the lands of Hirsel, of which she gave a portion to the nuns of Coldstream. She is sometimes called Deirdre of the Hirsel. The Home family descend from them and are still living at the Hirsel at Coldstream. Gospatrick Dunbar 2nd Earl was born before 1138. He was the son of Gospatrick Dunbar 1st Earl.
Cospatric (or Gospatric), was the son and heir of Cospatric (I), first earl of Lothian and lord of Beanley (d. 1138). He is known to have had a son handed over to King Stephen in 1139. He was patron of Melrose and Kelso Abbeys and Coldingham Priory, and founded with his wife, the nunnery at Coldstream. His wife was named Derder (Dierdre), with whom he had two sons, Waltheof (Waldeve) and Patrick. He may have retired as a monk at Durham late in life, transferring the earldom to his eldest son. Cospatric (III) died in 1166, probably at Durham and is perhaps buried there or at the nunnery at Eccles, which he might also have founded with his wife. A. McDonald, 'Gospatric, second earl of Lothian', ODNB, xxii, 1035; [] Handbook of British Chronology, 506: He is first styled earl of Dunbar on 1 November 1140 and died in 1166, before 8 December..

Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar

(26 September 1819 - 2 November 1904)
     Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar was born on 26 September 1819 in Dublin, Ireland (or England?). He was the son of Rev John Dunbar and Frances Holmes Halahan. Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar was christened on 10 October 1819 in St Peter, Dublin.
     Halahan matriculated at Trinity College, Dublin, on 12 June 1839. He entered Trinity 12 June 1839 aged 18 as a pensioner, son of John, clericus. Born Dublin. Prepared by Mr Sturgeon. He was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in 1844.

He wrote: I entered Trinity College, Dublin, where I did what most young fellows do - nothing of note. It was during my collegiate life however, that I studied hard, became somewhat proficient in Hindustanee, Arabic, and Hebrew; was a fair mathematician; loved the Arab Antar more than Homer, and devoured all the English poets from Chaucer upwards. My great wish at this time was to become an artist, painter or sculptor, for either of which I had a great taste and was naturally endowed. I do not speak through vanity or in self-laudation, but truthfully and sadly too, the reason for which regret I will show further on. Halahan was a curate in the Church of Ireland. at Ireland from 12 July 1846 to 1868. From 1846 to 1870 he was curate at Inishmacsaint (1846-62); 1846-58 curate in charge at Slavin (Post town Ballyshannon); and 1865-67 curate at Belleek.

     He wrote "Not being able to follow the profession I wished, I entered the Church, and was ordained July 12 1846, and appointed as curate in the same parish as my father. Father and son brother curates, in the same parish, on the magnificent stipend of £69 4s 7 1/2d per annum! The great Irish famine began the same year owing to the failure of the potato crops. The scenes I witnessed were heartrending. Thousands died for want of food, of actual starvation. Then came malignant fever ... those who could, fled; those who could not fly, laid down and died.
My life passed monotonously, without much to mark the months as they slipped by. One amusing event happened in a neighbouring church ... at Garrison, a small town on the south-east of Loch Melvin, [which] had just been built, and the Bishop of Clogher appointed the day for its consecration. My rector, father and myself, were present, among other clergy. When the service was about to commence, the clerk endeavoured to sing the opening psalm, but having a very bad cold, could not produce a note, so turning to the Bishop he said, "My Lord, I cannot get out a note, but will whistle it" ... to the unspeakable amusement of all present ... excepting the Bishop whose Episcopal gravity was very sadly upset. In justice to the cler. - a man I knew very well, for he worked for my grandfather, whose residence was just outside the town - I must say his whistling excelled... I remained twenty years in the same curacy, a lotus-eating but not wholly unpleasant life, during which I had time to study, and to increase my knowledge of painting and sculpture. My rector dying, a successor was of course appointed, who brought his own curates. I had often thought of leaving 'the church', and not long after, having lost my dear father, and the home being broken up, I left Ireland in company with one of my sisters, who required my escort to Australia

John Savage Dobson and Elizabeth Dick Dunbar were married by Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar on 20 April 1848 in Ballybay, Monaghan, Ireland.
Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar was listed in a directory dated between 1854 and 1855 as Halahan Dunbar at Clogher diocese, Ballyshannon, Inishmacsaint/Kilbarron, Donegal, Ireland.
Rev Halahan Dunbar was registered at the Lodge of Industry (#129) on the 10 Feb 1859 and issued a Grand Lodge certificate on 25 May 1859.
Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar was listed in a directory dated 1863 as Halahan Dunbar, curate at Slavin, Fermanagh, Ireland.
While curate at Belleek from 1865-1867 he was an amateur modeller, and modelled the Group of Hounds for the Pottery.
     Rev Halahan Killigrew Dunbar and Frances Holmes Dunbar arrived per "Hurricane" on 22 April 1869 at Victoria, Australia. Halahan wrote We embarked on board the "Hurricane", an iron clipper ship, commanded by Captain Johnson (he was Captain in the Naval Reserve), a good seaman, and a kind, considerate commander. .. My sister and myself were the only first-class passengers. In the second there were about thirty, a curious lot from all parts of the world. I (They landed in two life boats amid sharks), losing everything I possessed (including, implements, art tools, books, jewels, family plate, manuscripts, testimonials, etc., with the exception of a telescope). My sister fortunately had a cheque on the Melbourne Bank safe on her person. Thus I landed in the New World, half clad and penniless, with life to begin over again, when I thought I had just attained ease and comfort.

A man in such condition is not always welcomed even by his nearest relations ... Seeing my sister comfortably settled in her new home (she had come to Australia to be married), I felt myself to be one too many, and sought for employment in all those branches in which I was proficient. But without testimonials and minus a single implement necessary for my profession, it was little wonder that I was received with suspicion, and my story of the loss of everything in the 'Hurricane', with scarcely veiled sneers.
In a very short time I saw it was hopeless. ... Feeling it was wiser to leave Melbourne, as I had connections there, and had no wish to distress them with my presence, or let them know to what a state of poverty I was reduced, I managed by a chance piece of work (copying it was) to get together the price of a passage to New Zealand, and landed at Wellington. There I found things somewhat worse than in Melbourne. Literally no work to be had. I went also to try my luck at gold-digging. One morning I landed at Graham's Town and Shortland, half towns, half mining camps, the possessor of a pair of blankets, a few shillings, and a heart somewhere in my boots...

The Hurricane arrived off the Heads on the 21st and took on pilot Kennedy at 6 p.m. While entering the following morning at 8 a.m. she struck lightly on the Lonsdale Reef. Soundings were taken in the forehold but no water was found. However, when the vessel was approaching Arthur's Seat she started to dip by the head and soon after foundered. The passengers took to the boats and were taken to Melbourne by the tug Titan. which was not far away at Queenscliff at the time of the accident. The vessel and her cargo were sold a few weeks later but she was never raised and became a total wreck. The Hurricane was an iron ship of 1198 tons register, built on the Clyde in 1853. She was commanded by Captain D H Johnston RNR, formerly the clipper ship Lightning. The Hurricane sailed from Liverpool on January 12, with over 2000 tons of general cargo and 3 cabin and 16 second cabin passengers and a crew of 28 all told
At the Dromana Police Court, on the 18th of June (before Messrs. J. B. Burrell, R. Anderson and - Jellett), John and Elizabeth Jones was brought up on remand, charged with breaking open and stealing the contents of a chest washed ashorefiom the wreck of the Hurricane. Mr. F. Stephen appeared for the defence. The Rev.

Watkin stated in evidence that he had receieved a parcel fiom the female prisoner on the 18th inst., which he handed to Miss Dunbar. Believed it contained jewellery. Constable O'shannassy deposed to having found the articles produced at the house of ths prisoners. George Farnham corroborated the constable's testimony.
On 23 July 1879 he filed a Declaration of Intention (to become a citizen) filed in Sonoma County (California) with R . Thompson, Clerk of the District Court. So he must have arrived in California during or before 1879.

County physician receives interesting letter giving history of H K Dunbar who died recently.
Haley K Dunber, an old man who died a the coutny hospital on Nov 2 and whose remains occuply a grave int eh county's cemetery on the hill, near the poor farm, was in his day a man of note. This fact is bought out in a letter which was received on Wedbesday by County Physician J W Jesse from Gilbert C Jenkins, an old friend of the deceased, who resides in in the Freestone country. By accident Mr Jenkins heard that the man had passed away and wrote to the doctor for particulars of his death. It seems that some time before Dr Jesse became county physician Mr Jenkins, so he says, made a request that in the event of Mr Dunbar's death, he should be informed, so that the remains, instead og being ... [line obscred]interred in his (Jenkin's) plot in the cemetery.
Mr Jenkins say that the deceased was a graduate of the famour Triity College, Dublin, and took his degree of Bachelor of Arts from that university. He was also proficient in Greek and Hebrew and other tongues. He was once prominent in fraternal life, and was a member of an old and distinguished family in the old country. He was an artist in modelling pottery, and some of his art work, Mr Jenkins says, found its way and was considered almost priceless in the palaces of the late Queen Victoria. The late pioneer James Marshall of this city [line obscured] land purchased some of the pottery modelled by the late Mr Dunbar from the famous Belleek pottery. Mr Jenkins, who did what he could for the his old friend after reverses overtook him, will now endeavour to have his remains moved and interred in the Jenkins plot in the cemetery [Press Democrat Nov 17 1904]
