John Bennett, 1821, Nine Houses, Hawarden
« on: Sunday 01 July 18 10:28 BST (UK) »
A Mariner/Fisherman, not always in the censuses.

1841: HO107; Piece: 1409; Book: 15; Civil Parish: Hawarden; County: Flintshire; Enumeration District: 9A; Folio: 5; Page: 20 with his parents.
Next confirmed in 1871 (RG10; Piece: 3734; Folio: 42; Page: 12) with wife Elizabeth (1823, Connahs Quay) son Humphrey (1856, Nine houses) and married daughter Martha.
Working back there appears to be two more daughters Sarah (1846) and Mary (1851).

From GRO birth registrations Humphries' mother's maiden name is PEERS. Children before Humphrey appear to have mother's maiden name as TASKER (where I can pin-point them!).

I cannot find a John Bennett/Elizabeth marriage. Any help sorting this lot out would be appreciated.

15 April 1845 at Northop
John age 22 Mariner -father Edward occ Fisherman
Elizabeth Pierce age 20 -father Thomas Pierce occ Pilot

Neither signed the register so spelling of Pierce / Peers could be in doubt  ;D
They were both of Connhas Quay

Many thanks Rosie.

I'll take Pierce. (Maybe it'd pronounced "Peers" in a Flintshire Accent. They are pretty close in any accent)  ;D

Thanks Osprey.

I'm coming around to Elizabeth's surname being Peers. Son Humphrey married a Mary Peers in 1879!

Nine Houses was actually in Shotton:

Hawarden was a big parish at that time, and then included Shotton and many other places. I found a relative in Nine Houses. It seems to be close to the Wepre Brook, the parish boundary, and that ties in with your relatives being "of Connah's Quay"
