OK, thanks, makes sense now.

Robert Bennett does appear in Griffith's Valuation, and there is a location for that farm.  I presume that could be located today?

From my further searches and the info presently available, I'm thinking that Thomas is the eldest son and has continued to work the farm with Robert and then takes over the farm.  Hester/Esther, his mother, continues to live with Thomas and family as per 1901 Census.

Also thinking there is little prospect locally at that time for John and Samuel, Robert's other sons, so they emigrate to Australia.  But speculation on my part as not confirmed that Thomas in 1901 and 1911 Census is son of Robert and Esther.  This is the info that I continue to seek!

I assume you found these records for Thomas in the 1911 Census with mother Hester in 1901
but just in case someone else in the family finds this thread at some point.
1911 http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Cork/Clonakilty/Kilgarriff/378895/
1901 http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Clonakilty/Kilgarriffe/1095633/

Daughter Hester 1893 mother Mary Clarke

and Eliza 1895 mother Mary Clarke
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1895/02222/1838064.pdf

so Thomas and Mary's marriage gives Robert as his father

and you know from the Census his mother is Hester.

Thanks very much.  The link to Abraham Bennett's will and codicil provides further information that I did not previously have, e.g., Abraham had a brother Thomas, a cousin Robert, daughters Eliza and Anne (Buttomer) and son John.  His wife is mentioned in the codicil but no name mentioned.  All this info adds pieces to the puzzle.

Yes, I already found the census records for Thomas and Mary Clarke (appears as Clerke in some family trees on Ancestry.com)

Thank you so much for their marriage record.  I have been looking for that record for sometime without success, so it is great to now have it particularly with the confirming info of Robert as his father.  That record lists Thomas as a widower, I had noticed that he was abt 41 when he married Mary Clarke so that explains that as this is his second marriage.  With your superior search skills, could I ask would you mind searching for Thomas' earlier marriage? 

Thank you for all your assistance.

I will shortly post the info I have to date on Robert and Esther's family.

Second marriage, ah, I should have noticed that, I was so busy matching up the children and mother/wife I didn't notice.
It explains why I couldn't find a matching Robert.
Robert born 1891
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1891/02394/1892781.pdf
mother's name looks like Martha Sebury on that but I think this is the marriage 1890 transcribed as Martha Tebury
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1890/10696/5898382.pdf
I think Sebury may be correct but it should be possible to figure that out.
Martha died as a result of childbirth the day after Robert was born she was only 22. (which seems a tad young if I have the correct parents below)

Difficult to read the marriage to Martha but I think her father is Thomas address Tullyglass
which led me to this family
Matrha Sebury widow, son Henry widower
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Teadies/Tullyglass_West/1090911/
Henry married 1884 to Eliza Joice, his father is Thomas.
I got Eliza Joice name from daughter Martha's birth but also noticed this Martha died in 1904.
This family is suffering one tragedy after another.

Thank you for the info.  Noticed Robert born 1891 had a twin sister, Martha, born same day.  I think this Martha is the 11 yo Martha in the 1901 Census listed as grand daughter as no Martha appears in Bennett household for same year.  Interesting.

Also, witness at both of Thomas Bennett marriage's is Thomas Nagle, Thomas' brother in law!

Do death records like that for Martha Bennett January 1891 exist for Robert Bennett, death Clonakilty 1890 and for Esther/Hester Bennett around 1905?

Many thanks again for your assistance.  This is all great progress.

I was trying to find a birth for Martha Sebury/Bennett to confirm her parents but haven't.
Found all sorts of spellings and transcriptions of the name Sebury including a Catherine Leabury (Seabury) born to Thomas and Martha formally Butt???? formally Clerke. Too late search any more tonight.
