Benjamin is mentioned several times in the book "Here My Home, The Life and Times of John Stuart Hepburn 1803-1860 Master Mariner, Overlander, Founder of Smeaton Hill, Victoria" by Lucille M. Quinlan. One snippet which might be of interest: "He made a comfortable fortune out of buying and selling stock in the gold era, founding a Ballarat firm which still exists, though without the Hepburn name. He pioneered and revelled in all kinds of sporting clubs and in general enjoyed to the full that exuberant out-door life, combined with hard drinking and long feasting. He also cut quite a figure in female company, leading a long suffering wife to place on his tombstone the words: 'Every one of us shall give an account of himself to God'. He has come down in family tradition as 'naughty Uncle Ben'."
