Re: Re: Francis Henry Bennett

uncertain if Henry Bennett is the person I am looking for ( although that is a common family name-including my own middle name ) but I always knew my Grandfather as Frank. The age would be about right as my grandfather died in the 1980s & he was in his 90s.
He came to N.Z. in the early 1920s.

Re: Re: Re: Francis Henry Bennett

1901 Tintagel Census might help:
Residence: Trevalga (betwixt Tintagel and Boscastle)

Name, Birth year, where born, relationship to Head.

Ann H Bennett abt 1898 Tintagel, Cornwall, England Daughter
Charles G Bennett abt 1900 Tintagel, Cornwall, England Son
Francis H Bennett abt 1895 Tintagel, Cornwall, England Son
Harry Bennett abt 1864 Lesnewth, Cornwall, England Head
Ivy J Bennett abt 1889 Lesnewth, Cornwall, England Daughter
Mary P Bennett abt 1893 Advent, Cornwall, England Daughter
Salome A Bennett abt 1867 St Cleather, Cornwall, England Wife
Samuel E Bennett abt 1891 Lesnewth, Cornwall, England Son

Harry Bennett was a farm labourer.

You might be interested to know that there is a Francis Bennett nearby today who owns Wakefields Printers in Camelford - you never know there might be a link. Francis is a lovely chap and about to retire.

Hope this is of use to you.

Best wishes,

ooops, and before I forget, check out the earlier comments on this forum posted about William John Bennett of Trethevy and I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
