BENNETT family of Birmingham - marble masons
« on: Tuesday 19 July 11 10:04 BST (UK) »
Good evening all,

I am seeking information on George Henry BENNETT, born circa. 1860, of Latimer Street in Birmingham. He was a stone and marble mason and married to Sarah (whose maiden name MAY have been Marten/Martin). Children were Albert, Alice, Alfred, George, Sarah, Lillian and Frederick. This information I have gleaned from a marriage certificate of his daughter Lillian, and the 1891 and 1901 census. A stepson named John BETTS (born circa. 1875) is also listed on the 1891 census, employed as a brass worker.

I would love to learn more about the family, so any information will be greatly appreciated. My family knows nothing of the history, and I would really like to find out some more details for them.

Thanks,

Catherine

Hi Jim,

Both really! I only know that Lillian married and came out to Australia. I do not know anything at all about the other BENNETT family members.

Here's the only George Henry Bennett I could find in the online Warwickshire Parish Registers; the date and the place are close but don't match exactly.  However, ages are sometimes off and I've been lead astray previously by a child being born in one location but baptised in his mother's parish!

Regards,

Janet
