Benjamin Bennell was the half-brother of Samuel Bennell [E2] and full brother of Joshua Bennell. All three Bennell men followed in their father John’s footsteps and worked in the building industry. Joshua Bennell, who lived in North Fitzroy, was the contractor who built the new Scots Presbyterian Church at Heidelberg in 1900-01.1,2.
Benjamin married Jane Slater (1851-1918) in 1874 and they had four children, three boys and one girl – Mabel Annie Jane (1886-1980).3. The family lived for many years at 35 Hodgkinson Street, Clifton Hill.4. It is possible that [L4] ‘Mable Bennell’ is in fact a misspelling and should read ‘Mabel Bennell’.
