James Mason is 40 in 1881 Margretting Essex

James Mason registered Stoke on Trent 1840 mothers maiden name HENSHAW.

This ties in with his sister Elleanor Jane  being with the Henshaw's in 1851, 1861 Worcestershire.

Ann Mason age 50 death registered Stoke On Trent 1853
Ann the mother was probaly ill so the children went to relatives or possibly the workhouse?.

Your next move is possible baptisms at Hunelly Staffordshire for the children of Benjamin and Ann
Mason.

James Henshaw  is Ann Mason brother, check Worcestershire for the Henshaw family and you may find the Mason family. Sometimes you have to go backwards and sideways to get the facts in the middle. Finding the family/children 1851.

I found brother Richard in 1861 already in Islington with his wife Catherine and son Wiliam

Ancestry 1851 transcribed as Benjamin Moson area known as Chase

Benjamin 52 born Sunderland, carpenter head widowed ?
Robert 24 painter born Stoke on Trent Suffolk? this why so hard to find
Richard 20 carpenter          ditto
Mary Ann 14                      ditto
James 10 scholar                ditto

have submitted a request to change name

Benjamin being widowed doesn't tie in with death of Ann his wife in 1853 so maybe not the right one
however I've seen stranger things, perhaps it was easier to say he was widowed rather than my wife I've left back in Staffordshire.

Very many thanks Amondg.
I have been looking into James' father, Benjamin,the newspaper article re the marriage shows him as gentleman,of Seaford Sussex.
Directories show him as ,agent to Howard de Walden in 1858,and as a land and house agent in later years.In 1856 he married Caroline Field O'Callaghan ,described as a widower and builder,in Cripplegate (his father Benjamin,deceased,a builder).1861 census living in Seaford with servant,retired builder,born Sunderland Durham.1871 census similar living in Brighton.
His Will in 1876,proved by Richard Mason,son,of Islington,also a builder,and also proved by Robert Henshaw Mason,son,of Notting Hill,gentleman.
Thanks again for your latest replies,think it's all coming together!!

Have found in 1881 census--St Georges Hanover Square London,a Helen Mason,widow,28,nurse,born Essex Chelmsford,in the household of William Ridley.
Possibly the same Ellen Mason as found in Mabel Bagshawe's earlier post re the 1891 census?

Benjamin Mason's marriage to Caroline Field O'Callaghan---her father was Thomas Shrapnel Biddalph,a clergyman--probably distantly related to the inventor of shrapnel !!

Wondered if anyone can find Ellen's husband-James Mason-in the 1861 census?
He was born in 1841 in Hanley Staffordshire,father Benjamin,mother Anne,In 1871 he was a drapers assistant in Whitechapel,his marriage details the following year showing him as a draper.
