Nice one dathai

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.

 
Martha Sebury has a birth and death certificate to Henry and his wife.

Don't know what happened to Martha Bennett yet.

Grandmother Martha Sebury died 1908

I'm only looking at the FamilySearch links dathai posted.
The marriage of Thomas Seabury give to Martha Buttimer gives his father as Henry.


Oh gave myself a fright there, I was getting the Bennetts and Sebury confused.

There isn't any point in following the Sebury family any further is there, the Bennett line is your family of interest.

Try and put what we have together.
Robert Bennett and Esther/Hester Kingston married in 1846
They had two known children John c 1853 and Samuel c 1857 both emigrated to Australia.
Thomas Bennett born c 1853 has mother Hester living with him in 1901, father Robert on marriage so believed to be same family. Thomas Nagle as witness on both his marriages.
Annie Bennett/Chiddick born c 1852 has Thomas' daughter living with her as niece.
Mary Bennett/ Nagle born c 1853 father Robert on marriage Thomas Bennett witness.
Hester Bennett/ Deane born c 1857 father Robert on marriage Thomas Bennett witness

Not quite as happy with this one
Susanna Bennett/Parrott father Robert on marriage witness Thomas
Problem is her age.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Cork/Clonakilty/Gallanes/378945/
born c1865 or c1868, haven't found her birth yet, and women did have children for up to 20 odd years depending on what age they were at marriage.

Wow, you have been busy, thanks so much.  We are going out shortly so won't get a chance to look thru all this properly till later.  Looks good tho.

Could you also search for info on James Bennett please, have seen his name mentioned, could be another brother.

Many thanks.

The other witness at Susanna's marriage is Robert Deane, most likely her sister Hester's husband, so looks like another daughter for Robert and Esther.

This is fantastic work!  I am thrilled to bits to have uncovered all this information.  Thank you everyone who has contributed, in particular Sinann.

I will post an update on the info I have so far in the next couple of days.

The other people I'm still looking for info on is James Bennett and Francis Bennett.  James is listed in Griffiths Valuation, Parish of Kilgarriff, against map reference 10 (Robert Bennett against map reference 9) so perhaps brothers?  Francis Bennett is mentioned in Abraham Bennett's will (link provided by Sinann).  In his will Abraham mentions Robert as his cousin and Abraham is listed against map references 15 & 16 in Griffiths, Parish of Kilgarriff.  With Abraham and Robert being cousins, their fathers were brothers with same grandfather.  Any info greatly appreciated.

For future searches of your ancestry, you will need to be aware that Clonakilty does not have any registers prior to 1809, as that is when records were required to be kept. Like many Irish areas, records rarely start until around this time (some later, some earlier).
