Re: Benn surname

In Reply to: Re: Benn surname by John Judson of 512

James Benn (b.Manchester, c1908, d.1981) married Annie Walker, c.1937.
son:James Benn, b. 2.8.39, Manchester, married Brionie Lynn Anderson (b. Hastings 26.4.44), 18.7.64.
daughter: Margaret, born Manchester, emigrated Hartford Connecticut c1967, married Ari Poulos. Still lives there.Son, Jimmy, born c.1972.

James and Brionie: daughter Andrea, b 30.11.64. Son, Gary, b. 15.6.66. (Me!)

Prior to all these, my great-grandfather, ie the father of the first James mentioned, died when my G'Father was about 8 yrs old.

My Grandfather had a brother who emigrated to Australia (I don't know when).

James and Annie emigrated to Rhodesia in the 1950's, returning c.1962.

I don't know for sure, but am led to believe that the Benn family that I am part of started out in Kent. James, Brionie and Andrea all live in Sussex. I live in Cambridgeshire.

If you can, please keep me posted with anything you may turn up.
