Cas ---- you absolute star!

I always forget about FreeReg -- interesting that it was at a Non-conformist chapel. You have solved the quandary - Benjamin Wright was the son of Benjamin Wright, Boatman and Martha Beresford.

Both had been married previously and Martha - together with Benjamin's first wife, Caroline - had a father named George Beresford. Almost definitely they were sisters.

It looks like Benjamin junior spent his early life working on boats from a very young age -- likely missing the censuses - or not declared on them.

Very well done Cas. (My headache has gone!!)
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.
