George Charles Bennett born 26 Feb 1910
« on: Thursday 12 September 19 11:12 BST (UK) »
Hello
I'm looking up a family tree for a friend of a friend.It's her father in law we're after for her daughter who can't remember her father and who is now out of touch with her late husbands family.
  I've hit a bit of a snag with father in law George Charles Bennett born 26.2.1910 who married Abbots Langley Dec 1933 to Doris May Atkins .He is supposed to have two brothers and be from the East End of London.
His father is listed as George Bennett cork helmut maker on the marriage cert.
witnesses the married couple Frank and Pyhllis Visick nee Blackburn.

Which after spending 11 of her money gets me nowhere.
I have no George Charles Bennetts born in Mar or June qtr 1910 that fit the birthdate and father George(the one in Chester has a different DOB).
So I looked at George Bennetts and managed to whittle it down to 2
George Bennett June 1910 Dewsbury s of George Arthur Bennett and Annie Crawthorne miner-2 brothers
George Bennett June 1910 Wisbech s of George Robert Bennett and Edith Anne Horspool baker.No brothers

I'd like to go for the first ,there is a military record which gives the DOB for his 3 sons.George 's is a bit difficult to read and could be either the 20th or 26th.
But that does seem to fit better than the other one.But Dad as far as I know was never a cork helmet maker.
And George Arthur Bennett changes his date of birth 1885-1890 and helpfully marries Annie at the Registry office in Batley in 1908.So no help with his parents.

Help please!

Son George Charles is shown as age 13? ???
Or does the census form show 13 months?

I have not found one  ???

EDIT

Albert's occupation is a Printer, age 22 and  his father named Benjamin William West

1901 census RG13; Piece: 299; Folio: 160; Page: 51
has an Albert  23 occ Printer s (single) living with his parents Benjamin & Susan West plus siblings

Albert Charles West Baptism 4 Nov 1877 Bethnal Green St James the Great, Tower Hamlets
Father:   Benjamin William West, cabinet maker Mother:   Susan

There is a public tree on anc*y

Newspaper cutting Candadian Great War Project
picture Albert Charles West he  came to Toronto 17 years ago from London,
mentions he has a wife & two little boys
Parents named as Benjamin William West & Susan Buckner

Picture of Elizabeth Thompson b1877 father William George Thompson & Hannah
picture of May Elizabeth Francis West born 28th April 1898 London died 16th Sept 1976 Ipswich

some other info. from another document
Albert Charles West dob 9th Oct 1977 London
enlisted Sept 28th, 1914 at Valcartier, Quebec
his occupation Printer
Married, next of kin wife Annie, Fairbank, Ontario

So it looks as if Albert has separated from Elizabeth Jane West nee Thompson at some point -
have not located Elizabeth West nee Thompson or May West b1898 on 1901 census

May Elizabeth Frances WEST mmn THOMPSON

free search 1939 register shows this Bennett family in London Poplar District,
Ernest F 1914, Elizabetta 1876, George P 1866
might be worth a look to see if it's your Bennett family
