Design of an Emu and Kangaroo with a harp in the centre and shamrock underneath.
Background: The "Hibernian Australian Catholic Benefit Society" was first established in New Zealand, in Greymouth by Australians invited from Ballarat in 1869. The Society is registered as a friendly society under the Societies and Credit Unions Act 1982. The Hibernians are a friendly society for the mutual assistance of members in life and in death. Befitting its working class origins the dues payable by members are small to moderate with corresponding benefit levels to guard against hardship rather than amass wealth. The Society operates through local branches and quarterly notices advise members of their meeting details and their dues. Members dues are paid into their chosen benefit fund and for small amounts for the local branch's administration, social and benevolent funds, and the local medical fund. [1] The Society merged with the South Australian Benefit Society in 1885. In 1983 the Society merged with Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows. [2]
Within the Design Register BT 44/30 there are a number of Stevengraphs made by the manufacturers: Thomas Stevens, Henry Slingsby, Edward Bollans, Charles Roper Martin and Welch & Lenton.
Thomas Stevens invented the Stevengraph. The Stevengraph is a pictorial bookmark. In early 1862 Thomas Stevens patented the invention for 'manufacturing book markers by machinery for weaving ribbons, and . . . producing figures, designs, and mottoes thereon of various descriptions and colours, according to the nature of books for which the markers are intended.' [1]
Edward Bollans and Co manufactured silk, and were also possibly Wholesalers. [2]
Henry Slingsby was a silk manufacturer. In 1870 his named changed to H. Slingsby & Son. [3]
Charles Roper Martin. No details can be found about this manufacturer. The address of this proprietor is: 3, Flinders Lane East, Melbourne, Australia.
Welch & Lenton was a producer of silks, some of which are identical to other manufacturers of this time, in particular the silk manufacturer Edward Bollans. The address found on some of Bollans Register entries is that of Welch & Lenton.

  • 24 Mar 1897, Upper Beaconsfield. BY TODEA AFRICANA.
    I hear that the "Tower," formerly belonging to Mr. Jno. Kitchen, has been sold, and that the residence of the late Mr. Walford, known as "The Fernery," is let on lease for eight years.11
  • 9 Nov 1901, The death of Mrs. Eleanor Nicholson, relict of the late Mr. Germain Nicholson, which occurred at Edgecliffe, Sydney, on November 1, has removed another of the few remaining residents who can claim an active participation in Melbourne life for 60 years. Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson, who were newly wed, arrived in January, 1842, and for a number of years they resided "at the shop" in King-street, near Bourke-street, where Mr. Nicholson laid the foundation of the lucrative grocery business which he subsequently carried on until 1884 at premises at the corner of Collins and Swanston streets, a locality that is still called "Nicholson's Corner." During her long residence in Melbourne Mrs. Nicholson interested herself in every movement for the benefit of her sex and for the aged poor, and it is testified that "many will miss her kindly sympathy and aid in their time of need." Mrs. Nicholson survived her husband about 10 years, and she has left a daughter, who is the wife of Mr. Robert MacMicking, of Manus Station, New South Wales.12
