Hennessey, John David: The Caves of Shend. V1. 3 Mar 2012
John David Hennessey (1847 – 31 July 1935), also known as Rev. J. D. Hennessey and David Hennessey, journalist and author, was born in London and went to Australia in 1875. He lived in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Hennessey was a Methodist and Congregational minister and preached at the Wharf street Congregational Church in Brisbane and the Pitt street Congregational Church in Sydney. He founded the Australian Christian World in 1886 and edited it until 1891. In 1894 he edited the Australian Field, a weekly agricultural paper.
Hennessey retired from journalism when about seventy years old, however he continued his literary work until shortly before his death, which occurred after a brief illness. He was buried at the Dromana Cemetery.
As well as short stories in magazines in Australia and England, Hennessey published several novels. One, The Outlaw, was awarded second prize of £400 in a £1,000 novel competition.
I AM a doctor of medicine, John Strong by name, and I write this story, in the year 18—, less with the thought of publication than for the comfort of mind which such occupation may chance to bring me. She whom I have loved more than other women has left Australia for ever. I am thankful to say under happy circumstances for her, but otherwise for me.
