BENNETT Family History

Sambourne Coughton Studley (near REDDITCH)

In the 1800s, numerous Bennetts populated the area of SAMBOURNE, COUGHTON, STUDLEY, and AVON river towns of ALCESTER, CLEEVE PRIOR, INKBERROW, EVESHAM.
My paternal surnames ARCH PACE LAMPIT VICARAGE CULLWICK also come from this area.

He was sick and to be returned at Halifax where he met with a family from Wallace, NS who took a liking to him and needing farm help, took and cared for him. George did well with these people at Wallace. As you can see, he had a family and we are thankful of so much. Unfortunately, I do not know the name of these people who came to George's rescue.

    I've been looking at the PENN's on the various census CD's only to find them in Redditch, Alcester, Stratford on Avon, Exhall and that sort of area. My great grandfather Edward BENNETT was born in Sambourne which is in the same area. His father was William BENNETT. It is possible that the BENNETT's who married into your PENN family back in the 1700's may have moved into this area. I wonder if our William is a descendant. I need to confirm a birth date and obtain a birth certificate (around 1850) for Edward to find out who his mother was before I can track back any further.

    sister of
    GEORGE FREDERICK BENNETT of Wallace, Nova Scotia

    She came to NOVA SCOTIA in 1949 to visit her brother GEORGE FREDERICK BENNETT and his large family at WALLACE. - In 1965 I visited her at RUNCORN ROAD in Harborne, south Birmingham - she sent me off to the corner pub for a half dozen Makeson Stouts and played the piano for me. It was a good visit. She told me she liked my father, he had stayed with her during the WW2 and was happy to meet me. I was born at that time at Selly Oak. She told me she took up piano lessons at the age of 70 to help console her upon the death of a grandson.

    In Redditch we have Forge Mill Museum which is dedicated to the history of needle making for which the area is famous. They have a historian called Joanne whom I visited and she looked up manufacturers and there was a Thomas BENNETT who had been extracted from the Trade Directories for 1868. There was also a GIBBS. I'll check all the Trade Directories in Redditch Library when I get a minute.

    Hi Folks,

    Take a look at this family below that I found on the 1881 census in Ilkeston, Derby.

    GEORGE and his father GEORGE were both born in Alcester, Warwickshire.

    NELL's father EDWARD, my great grandfather, was born in SAMBOURNE (which is often found on census records as Sambourne, Coughton, and Coughton often comes under Alcester) somewhere between 1840 and 1852. Also EDWARD's father was WILLIAM, who was carpenter.

    Now coincidentally GEORGE's father GEORGE was born 1847 in Alcester and was a carpenter. I wonder if GEORGE senior was EDWARD's brother and took up the carpentry trade of their father WILLIAM.

    DERBY was where the big works was for building rolling stock for the railways.

    ALF FANTHAM, who lives not far from me in KING's NORTON, is trying to find info about JOHN BENNETT and his wife ELIZABETH ROGERS both born about 1856 in Birmingham. Another coincidence therefore, the JOHN RODGERS above was born about 1858, so I wonder if he could have been brother to ELIZABETH ROGERS, hence the reason he is staying with the BENNETT family because of her connections.

    Alf says:
    Can find no entry in St Catherine's for a marriage of JOHN BENNETT to ELIZABETH ROGERS in the years preceding 1881, nor an appropriate registration of the death of JOHN BENNETT prior to 1898. have checked logical fiches in the 1891 census, but not found them yet have checked numerous parish records for marriage of JOHN/ELIZABETH together with the baptism of WILLIAM and ADA, but have not found them. Substantial reward offered to anyone offering evidence to confirm parentage and birth of WILLIAM

    Interesting int it.

    Date: Wed, 5 Jan 2000 ...From: "Alf" ...To:

    died 2nd battle Ypres 1915 private 4304 Royal Warwicks

    married ROSE ADA KNIGHT age 19, 31 July 1898 @ Birmingham St Gabriel, age 20 Bedstead maker, father JOHN BENNETT decd engraver. witnesses Ada BENNETT and James THOMPSON (subsequently married 1899 age 21)

    registered birth certificate:
    born 25 February 1880, father JOHN - engraver, mother ELIZABETH nee ROGERS

    1898-20 =1878 not 1880. OK can live with that, maybe he wanted to be older than his wife.

    1881 census:

    JOHN BENNETT age 25 engraver
    ELIZABETH age 25 wife
    ADA age 3
    WILLIAM age 1

    Can find no entry in St Catherine's for a marriage of JOHN BENNETT to ELIZABETH ROGERS in the years preceding 1881, nor an appropriate registration of the death of JOHN BENNETT prior to 1898. have checked logical fiches in the 1891 census, but not found them yet have checked numerous parish records for marriage of JOHN/ELIZABETH together with the baptism of WILLIAM and ADA, but have not found them.

    The surnames I am interested in are WILLIAMS and BENNETT
    (my great grandparents were JOSEPH WILLIAMS (a grocer, born 1834 in Kingswinford, Stafforshire)and JANE BENNETT (born 1840 in Dudley) who moved to Yorkshire with their family (children Thirza b. 1860 and Mary b. 1865) from Staffordshire around 1870.

    Their marriage cert. (18th Aug, 1861) lists BOTH as aged 21 - so the previous age problem is clarified and it looks like both were born c. 1839/ 1840. Joseph ( a miner( is listed as residing in Gornal, Jane ( a nailer) as Gornal Wood. Jane's father was JOSEPH BENNETT (miner) and Joseph's father a WILLIAM BENNETT (labourer). They were married in Lower Gornal Church in the Parish of Sedgeley.
