Norman Faulkner Bent
« on: Sunday 22 October 17 20:25 BST (UK) »
I am searching for any descendants of Norman. My father is the last of his direct male line, Ronald Bent, born 1931 to Frank Cyril Bent who was the son of Norman Faulkner or Fauckner. Dad had only 2 girls so the direct male line for Norman will die with Dad bless his heart. Dad was on stage from around 14 years of age to 18 with Dudley Dale and his gang of boy singers and dancers. He emigrated to Canada around 1950-51, met up with my Mum who had also emigrated and consequently ended up in British Columbia. I only know that Norman was an actor in London. His wife Emily ( nee Link Custance) is listed on the census as simply wife.

If you have access to Ancestry there are quite a lot of people who have family trees there, so perhaps that is the easiest way to make contact with descendants.

Norman had 2 sons older than Frank Cyril - Norman Frederick bc.1886 and Harold bc.1890.

Norman Frederick married a Rosalie Clement Martin 1910 Birkenhead and a son Norman Hector born 1910 - in April 1910 Norman Frederick went to Sydney, NSW, Australia followed by wife and son in 1916 where a dau. born 1918 and another son Henry Arthur Reginald b.1920.  So, 2 grandsons of Norman Faulkner were in NSW and any descendents of these 2 are to be found in Australia.

Harold married an Ethel Ann Hunt in 1915 and they had 3 daughters and 2 sons - Stephen F. 1917-2001 (who in turn married 1945 and had a daughter 1951 and a son 1954 in Northallerton, Yorks - names easily found on Birth Index - cannot name as still living) and a John W.born 1925 (can find nothing on him other than birth entry).

The son born 1954 married in Durham in 1979 - 2 sons and a daughter.   This family living in Durham on current UK census.

So, there are indeed a few male descendents of Norman Faulkner Bent around in England and Australia.

Advertisement for a play that Norman was in:
Pall Mall Gazette, Tuesday, June 1, 1886, Issue 6617. (and a few other dates around the same time)

Charles HAWTREY was quite influential - his wikipedia page here (includes a mention of "The Pickpocket" at the Globe Theatre)

But be sure to do your own research too, as often the trees on Ancestry are suspect to say the least.  I know there are many trees that are well researched but many others have just copied from other trees and have mixed up families - as I've seen when looking at a supposed tree of my family, where the tree owners have mixed up two brothers, their wives, their children, their marriages and their deaths and just made one tree.  Others on Ancestry have copied the whole of the "made up" tree.

I find the trees on Ancestry are a starting point only.
