Karen, l read with interest your query re Standing.l live in Bendigo,formerly Sandhurst,Victoria,Australia.As per Faye Ball's posting,there is a John Pendlebury buried here,he died of epilepsy at the property of his uncle at Elysian Flat,just out of Sandhurst.l have his death notice,Father-James Pendlebury Esq;of Thruggs Bleach works,Preston,Mother-Nancy Standing.John is listed as from Manchester.He is buried with his uncle,Samuel Pendlebury,son of Isaac and Martha[Grundy]of bolton,Lancashire.With them is samuel's sister Ellen[married name Hart]............there is also another Standing female buried early on here-l will have to check her name.Samuel had a hardware shop here for gold-diggers,also a gentlemens residence,with him was a member of the Poole family of Bolton.What has always got me is that our John and charlotte went to London or Plymouth from Lancashire to catch the boat here,in 1849,l'm sure they could have come from liverpool,l have always wondered if there were family at london or Plymouth.Do you know if there are any Pendlebury family connections at all?Interestingly also,their son,Thomas married frances Maria Baker,another name l see on your query list.l look forward to hearing from you,Pauline.
