I think you are more likely to be related to Allan Banfield's tree than mine, but, not to miss a possible lead, I have been trying to find out more about a John Vigers Banfield, who in 1896, at Fremantle, along with Stephen Lorden, patented and produced a "Dry Blower" for mining. He also imported the first automobile into Fremantle in 1901. Whose family did he come from ? Any ideas ? I have a family that emigrated to New Zealand in about 1850 who used the name "Vigurs" as a middle name, which is why this person caught my eye.
I also have a Joseph Banfield on my tree who went to Australia in about 1865 and set up a boat-building business at Pyrmont, Sydney. He had several children and I have not, as yet, been able to trace all of them to current day (due to the privacy laws). If you have any information on Joseph I would be pleased.
Roger Banfield (Scilly)
