Hi Sandra
I can go back to my g. grandfather who's grave is with my grandfather in the Wildernesshoogte cemetry, he was William John Benn. I myself are going to George over the Christmas period to find out his details from the Church of England that is in George, I will also go to the Diaz museum in Mosselbay, so I will let you know what I find out there, I have also email to the Diaz museum but my emails was also send back.
I dicover in a voter's list a Benn who voted in 1878, so I think that maybe my g.g.grandfather William John Benn. If the first John Benn was born in 1812 then I think my William was more or less the same age, he came over with his wife and my g.g. grandfateher who was already born in England.
