    Biography Notes Eleanor Mabel Bundey - born 3/9/1882 at East Wellington SA.

    Married: James (Jamie) Beevor Rankine (b. 25/1/1877) son of Capt. James Rankine and his wife of "Wyndgate", Hindmarsh Island and "Braemar', Strathalbyn. His mother was nee Isabel Agnes Beevor. Jamie was born at "Glenbarr", Strathalbyn. He was not born deaf but became so after a severe childhood illness and in adulthood could hear gramaphone music faintly if he sat close. He was educated at Townsend House. Brighton, a school for the hearing impaired and there met Eleanor who had been born profoundly deaf. They were engaged for 9 years before marrying c.1913. They built "Woodford" with very large rooms on part of the "Wyngate" land at Hindmarsh Island as his widowed mother and some of the family still occupied the main house. Jamie farmed at the island. Neither of their two girls inherited the deafness of both the families but decided when quite young not to risk having possibly deaf children of their own. (information from the Rankine Family History by E.M.S.)

    Deaths: James died suddenly at the Victor Harbor Hospital on 6/10/1935 aged 58 years. Interred at Strathalbyn Cemetery.

    Eleanor Rankine lived in her latter days at Renmark with her younger daughter Mrs John Sharley and died there on 10/2/1969 aged 86 years.
