1901 census lookup please
« on: Monday 22 May 06 01:02 BST (UK) »
Could sks please check the 1901 census for William Bennie born 1851 Glasgow Scotland. He should be living in Liverpool with his wife Annie and was probably a timber merchant.
Many thanks

Hi Jan,

Here is your family, I think, in 1901:-

1901 Census

16 Service Road, Litherland, Lancashire


William Bennie - Head - md. - 50 - Timber Salesman - b. Scotland

Helen Bennie - w. - md. - 46 - b. Yorks., Holmfirth

Alice Bennie - d. - single - 23 - b. Lancs., Bootle

Catherine Bennie - d. - single - 21 - Teacher School - b. Lancs., Bootle

Helen Bennie - d. - single - 19 - Teacher School - b. Lancs., Bootle

Edith Bennie - d. - single - 15 - Drapery - b. Lancs., Litherland

William Bennie - s. - single - 12 - b. Lancs., Litherland

Rebecca Bennie - d. - single - 8 - b. Lancs., Litherland

Malcolm Bennie - s. - single - 6 - b. Lancs., Litherland

Amelia Bennie - d. - single - 4 - b. Lancs., Litherland

Ref:  RG13 / 3449 / ED5 / f.46 / pp. 46 & 47

Litherland is in the north of the city of Liverpool.

The one difference to the names listed on your posting is that William's wife is called Helen - is 'Annie' a nickname for Helen perhaps?  William's age fits the bill, though, as does his job. 

Is this the correct family?


Regards,

Richard

Many thanks Richard, I'm pretty sure this is the right family. I know they had a daughter Alice so that fits. I must have been mistaken about his wife :-)
Thanks for your help

Thanks for posting Fenboy. I've since found out that I had the wrong William Bennie. Mine lived, married and died in Glasgow.
