thomas the father was born in huntingdonshire abt 1786 according to the 1841 census
his wife elizabeth was also born there in 1791 again according to the 1841 census
so we know this family of horsetraders were still in huntingdon in 1786.

seahall
there is possibly another family called bentham who had a son william  born bluntisham cum earith
william bentham
birth; 12th oct 1812
place baptist-bluntisham cum earith
parents; thomas/elizabeth

then there is this one which i have posted already
william benton
birth; 4th july 1818
place baptist-bluntisham
parents; thomas/elizabeth

do you think the parents could be the same and the surname has changed between 1812-1818 ?
only i cannot see a bentham in huntingdonshire in 1841
cattell,alcester
vickers,sulgrave
hewish,holborn
manley,bethnal green
barnes,bassingbourn
