Dicky Bennelong

Son of Bennelong. He had been placed in the Native Institution at Parramatta in 1816 and remained there until 1821. He then lived with the Wesleyan missionary, Reverend William Walker.

He was baptised as Thomas Walker Coke at the Wesleyan Chapel at Parramatta on 8 September 1822. Dicky Bennelong became ill and died early in February 1823. He may have been married briefly to Maria, the sister of Colebee from Richmond, although this requires further research.  Affiliation: Wangal
