William Henry BENNETT 1891 - 1901
« on: Sunday 12 December 04 21:10 GMT (UK) »
Still trying to discover if William Henry BENNETT b. Heathfield 1846 ever married.   Last trace on 1881 census Single boarding with Abner Camfield at Rotherfield.   Could some kind soul with access to the 1891 and 1901 censuses  do a search for him.

Hi,

There is an unmarried William Bennett on the 1891 census although he is listed as being born in Brighton, Sussex.  He is living with Elizabeth Bennett (Widowed) and her family and is there as brother to the head of the family, although I think he would have been the brother of Elizabeth's husband...would your William Bennet have had a sister in law called Elizabeth?

In 1901, William Bennett aged 56 is listed as head of household and is married to a lady called Elizabeth...his sister in law perhaps?  :o Even if this isn't your William Bennett, it still makes a good story!

Regards, Emma

Although, that said, this William Bennett actually appears on the 1901 census as an unmarried inmate of the Brighton Workhouse.  There's that illusion gone then!  I'll keep looking!

Would he have had a sister called Mary A Bennett? Born around 1851?

Hello Emma,
I apologise for the delay in answering your posting.   I am afraid that is not my William.   Right year of birth but wrong area and connections.   William Henry Bennett was born in Heathfield 1846.  He had three sisters Sally b.1853 Sarah b.1861 and Betsy b.1864.   According to one of my cousins he married late in life and had one daughter .  They lived in or near Hellingly.
