Bette, I was so pleased to read of your late husband's descent from John Bindon. He was the half-brother of my 3x gt grandfather, Francis Harris They shared a mother, Sarah Middleton, whom my 4xgt grandfather married in 1789. As a widow, she was the mother of John, and with Francis, she was the mother of the younger Francis. John and his stepfather joined the RN at the same time, and on the same ship, both seeing action off Genoa and at Hyeres. The younger Francis then joined his father on Temeraire, aged 8, but falsifying his age to 13. They both were at Trafalgar, the father as gunner, the younger as a powder monkey. So happy to meet a family member, albeit distant!

Very pleased and grateful to find such a clear and concise Event History of Commander John Read Bindon RN, who was a Great-Great-Grandfather of my late husband, Brian Leslie Vereker-Bindon. Grateful to see so many of our 'bits and pieces of information' we have gathered over many years for the Family Tree, on 1 sheet of paper. Sadly though, Brian is not here to see it. Thank you.
