On robina smiths marriage certificate it said harry who we know as Henry was a seaman/fisherman but we know from his other childrens marriage cert he is a labourer.
I am still waiting for the certificate to come hopefully by next week.

The last surviving members of the Benton family currently live in London England. Benjamin Benton born 9th July 1921 and died 15th June 2009 married Edith Halpin and had three children. *

For information, i am applying for Roll of Peerage through the crown office. Benton is a noble family from Northampton and has a direct line of succession to the title. However, was removed after the Norman Conquest. If there is any other Bentons in England, I would very much like to hear from you.
