The Family of
|This "history" was compiled, at my
request, by my sister the Hon
Mrs Christy Bing. I asked her to try and draw
together as many threads of the family story as she could to demonstrate how far we have
travelled and what it is that draws us back to the place of our common origin. I felt it
was appropriate to have such a background to our gathering this May. She has used the
various references she mentions but, I believe, was inspired as much as anything by the
many letters we have had from you all, welcoming this move to reinforce the best spirit or
our inheritance. I hope you will like what she has done as much as I do and that her work
will encourage you to help us compile an authoritative account of the story of every
branch of our far flung family. Her account is deliberately aimed at stimulating such
interest and we know that it is by no means exhaustive in any respect but we owe her a
sincere debt of gratitude for her achievement.
