Benjamin Simpson
« on: Saturday 02 May 20 22:43 BST (UK) »
Iím trying to find where my great great grandfather Benjamin Simpson born in England possibly around 1820 and my great great grandmother, Hannah Smith Simpson also born England. They married and had 14 children. First born was Elizabeth Ann born 5/28/1843 then Benjamin John born 10/19/1844 then Emma Francis born 6/15/1846 then William Henry born 12/27/1848. I have the family bible that lists all children with births so trying to find where they came from. Benjamin and Hannah supposedly moved to Ireland at some point. Having difficulty finding Benjamin and Hannahís birth, maaarrige and death certificates

Births September qtr 1848   
SIMPSON    Emma Frances         Stepney    2   464

But mothers maiden name was Fearne and there is a marriage on freebmd - not Benjamin & Hannah

There is no marriage and no birth registrations matching the children listed in your post.  Was Hannah's maiden name Smith or is Smith a second christian name?

A tree on Ancestry shows Benjamin born 1820 Celbridge, Kildare, Ireland and the children born Northern Ireland

Hannah is Anne on the Irish baptism of son Theophilus Hare Simpson

George Henderson's full address in the 1867 marriage registration was no. 72 Thomas Street Dublin, this is the same address recorded in the following 1869 civil registration for John Simpson marrying Adelaide Norman, John's father recorded as Benjamin Simpson:

The couple went on to have several children, John died in 1889 and by 1892/3, Adelaide was  placing notices in newspapers to say that she was leaving the country and therefore selling her farm at Clonshanbo, in the event, an online family tree indicates that she ended up in New Jersey USA.   

An Emma Simpson (father Benjamin) married a Peter Connor of  Clonshanbo in 1870 ...
