Hi Barbara

This maybe a red herring but also maybe a lead.

There is a Patrick Kingley died 1884 buried in district at the Eaglehawk Cemetery

Now the interesting thing is that this man had a son names Hansel Kingley b: 1875.

Hansel is the third name of Edith's son who died in 1915.

Patrick KINGLEY married Annie THOMAS 1874 Victoria
Children: born Parents Patrick KINGLEY & Annie/Ann THOMAS
Hansel KINGLEY b: 1875 Eaglehawk Vic

I searched trove and found some article re this family.

Bendigo Advertiser (Vic. : 1855 - 1918)Monday 12 May 1884

Eaglkhawk Police Court.—Three little boys named Hansel, Daniel, and Thomas Kingley were brought up a charge of being neglected children. Sergeant Gleeson informed the bench that the father of the children committed suicide on the 5th April, and their mother had left the district, taking two other children with her. The three boys before the bench were left by Mrs. Kingley in charge of a Mrs. Beale, who,he believed, was not in a position to maintain them. Mrs. Beale stated that on Tuesday night last Mrs. Kingley brought the children to her and asked her to take care of them. She had since heard that Mrs. Kingley had gone to Sydney. The bench ordered the childron to be sent to the Industrial School, Hansel for six, and the other two for seven years. Mr. G. Webster, P.M., presided.

The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893) Thursday 10 April 1884
Deliberate Suicide in Victoria.
The Argus' Eaglehawk correspondent telegraphed on Saturday :
Considerable-excitement was occasioned in the borough this morning when it was reported that an old resident named Patrick Kingley, who for many years was licensee of the Crown Hotel, had committed suicide by drowning himself in Lake Neangar. For some time past the domestic relations of the deceased have been of an unhappy character, and during the past few months the conduct of a young son has occasioned considerable trouble to the unfortunate man, who this morning put an end to his existence.. On the 21st November, 1883, the lad referred to, Hansell William Kingley, was charged at the local police court, before the mayor, with stealing a number of pigeons, and the de- ceased then entered into his recognizance of £10 for the good behaviour of the accused for a period of six months. During the past month, however, young Kingley has been exercising his thieving predilictions, and on Wednesday last he was charged at the City Police Court, Sandhurst, with having stolen certain articles of wearing apparel from drapery establishments in Sandhurst. As no proof could be found as to the ownership of the goods, the case was withdrawn,and Kingley, sen., was charged with re- ceiving stolen good, knowing the same to have been stolen. Upon the evidence of the son, the father was committed to take his trial at the next general sessions, and since those preliminary proceedings Kingley has been in a most despondent state of mind. During the past five weeks he has on several occasions threatened to " do away with him- self," but no notice was taken of his threats. At 10 minutes to 5 this morning he arose from his bed, and having dressed himself, took two of his children into his wife's bedroom. He was aaked by his wife to bring her a drink, which he did, remarking, " This will be the last drink I will ever bring you." Mrs. Kingley counselled him to " do nothing rash," and he replied that " he had his own reasons for it." Having kissed his four children, he left the hotel, and nothing further was known of his whereabouts until about 7 o'clock, when a young man named J. R. Leggo, a State school teacher, whilst rowing round the lake, discovered the body of the deceased. Infor- mation Was at once given to the police, who removed the body.
A magisterial inquiry was held by Mr. Graham Webster, P.M., at the police court this morning. After hearing evidence, which was merely corroborative of the facts mentioned, a verdict of felo de se was returned. The deceased, who was 60 years of age, leaves a widow and four children.

It appears that Annie/Ann THOMAS was Patrick's second wife as he is buried with a Mary Ann KINGLEY.

Friends of Mr. KINGLEY are -respectfully invited to follow the remains of his late Wife, MARY ANN KINGLEY, to the Eaglehawk Cemetery. on Thursday, the llth instant. The Funeral to move from thier late residence, The Crown Hotel, half-past three p.m.
