George Benmore Pentecost
« on: Sunday 07 July 19 13:48 BST (UK) »
Researching the Exmouth family of Benmore, came across Thomas Benmore's grandson, GEORGE BENMORE PENTECOST b. 1857. He was living with his mother, Elizabeth, at his grandparents' house, 15 Beacon, Exmouth in 1861 and 1871, according to the census for those years.  In 1881 he is shown as a clerk , boarding in a house in Lambeth, London.  By 1891, still in Lambeth, he has married : to Grace , and they have a daughter, Edith.  Most intriguingly, George Benmore Pentecost is shown as "WRITER". 
Both George's grandfather , Thomas, and his uncle George Phillip Benmore were significant citizens of Exmouth; George in particular. [ In his earlier years as an architect, in 1852, he had been appointed to the staff of the great Penrhyn estate in North Wales at a time when the then owner was improving the conditions of the people of his estate - cottages, schooling etc. ]

Can anyone expand on George B Pentecost  WRITER ?   Did he and Grace have any more children after Edith (b. 1889)  ?
Families of Goodman brothers (Edward,Joseph,Arthur); emigrated from Rockingham,Northamptonshire to the US, Edward & Joseph in 1900 ;Arthur in 1893. Places include: Ionia in Michigan; various towns in Madison Co.,Wisconsin. Also South Dakota. Later: Greeley in Colorado. Elise or Eliselise (married Arthur) born Wisonsin, daughter of German immigrants (no maidenname as yet).  Edward married Bathsheba/Bessie Cox, daughter of William Cox.  Joseph married Dena Grebner. She was from Wisc.

and also possibly (did they go to Wales?) - actually ignore these, there is another Williams/Pentecost marriage in Conway that looked like it produced these children.

Ah so if George died in 1901...this makes more sense. 

and that Grace Jane (Williams) Pentecost died on 18 February 1902 in Exmouth, Devon

Doris Belvedera seemed to be in the Royal Female Orphanage at Beddington after the parents died. 

Records give her date of birth of 13 November 1894 and she went into the Orphanage on 7 October 1902.

Edith Grace Blanche Pentecost

Death Place - Essex, England
Probate Date - 11 Mar 1958

It would appear that Edith never married.
