Ebenezer Dingle was the only son of Abraham Dingle. He married Elspeth McGuire in 1831 and she had two songs; Jacob in 1832 and Methusalah in circa 1835.

At some point, Ebenezer's brother Nathaniel was suspected of sheep stealing and was convicted. As a result, Nathaniel emigrated to Australia, resulting in the chain of "Australian Dingles", and the Australian Dingles blamed Ebenezer Dingle for Nathaniel's false conviction and the Emmerdale Dingles were hated by the Australian Dingles.
