I have it a brick wall finding out anything beyond the 1861 census for my GGF Benjamin.  His parents were Smith Flanders and Martha Flanders (nee Benton) from Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.  Smith was and Excise/Inland Revenue Officer. Any suggestions for places to look for more information?  Thanks

Welcome to rootschat

Not sure what you mean by 'beyond' 1861  :-\   

Benjamin is with his parents in 1841 at Wingham, Kent  HO107 / 1631 f371 p26
Smith bn c1800 at Littleport, Cambridgeshire
Martha bn c1804 Littleport
Benjamin is born c 1841 Aylsham, Norfolk

Presumably you know who he married and what children they had

Who is your direct line from Benjamin, where and when were they born  :-\
