Benjamin Thorpe & Jane Hill
« on: Wednesday 18 June 08 07:10 BST (UK) »
Hi,

Was wondering if any one out there if anyone is related to this family.  Benjamin Thorpe was born in Buildwas Shrophire in 1800 and Jane Hill his wife in 1804, they emmigrated to Aust in about 1829-32 and settled in Fremantle-Rockingham Area.  His Parents were Ebenezer Thorpe and Mary Phillips both born Little Wenlock, Shropshire.  I have a few more generations going back, but would love to hear from relatives or anyone else who knows something about them.

Thanks
Tanya

Hi Tanya

I'm not related to your people, but was wondering whether you need any help with research etc.

Thanks again

There is a will of Benjamin Thorp dated 1789 at Lichfield which describes him as a victualler of Birmingham. He does however leave property in Madeley to his wife which is why I thought there might be a link.

Hi Bristol,

Thanks for that link, I didn't know any of it.  I haven't had much time to go through anything lately and have just had a chance to check it all out
