Ned's parents were joined in holy matrimony, on November 18th 1850, at St Francis Roman Catholic Church in Melbourne. After their marriage the young couple moved in with Ellen's parents at Wallan Wallan East.

Following his success in the goldfields, Red bought land at nearby Beveridge and over the next few years, they lived in several premises in and around the town, where most of the Kelly children were born. They were Mary Jane (1851), Anne (1853), Edward "Ned" (1854), Margaret "Maggie" (1857), James "Jim" (1859), Daniel "Dan" (1861) and Catherine "Kate" (1863). Another girl Grace, was born in Avenel after the family moved there in 1864.

The Kelly house at Beveridge, where the family lived from 1860 to 1864. Ned’s father built the centre structure in this photo and ran the property as a dairy farm while the children attended the local school below.

The Catholic church building when first built was used as a school class room. Today it is privately owned.
