Darcy family

The photo (seen before) is taken at 'Studbrook' and on the back says "wishing dear uncle a happy Xmas...sis ...Studbrook19-12-19".
It's John Francis Darcy, he would have been 55. Brother to Catherine Maud Darcy who married Robert James Carden, brother to Fanny Chapman.
These Darcys were a big farming family, and started out in Ballarat, like Richard Carden did, before moving to Studbrook. After his death his former 'housekeeper' claimed that he meant to provide for her & took JF Darcy’s trustees to court, that must have caused a commotion in the family!  Her case was upheld, but she was awarded a much lower amount.
