Classification: Query
Surnames: Tansley, Bennett
John Bennett was born in Keyston, Huntingdonshire (now part of Cambridgeshire) in about 1789. Mary Tansley was born in 1805 (baptised 27 August) in Oundle, Northamptonshire. She was the third of eight children of Everitt and Mary Tansley. John and Mary were married on 14 February 1825 at All Saints Church in Pilton, a small village in Northamptonshire, where the Tansley family lived. At the time, John was living in Molesworth. Their child, John G. Bennett, was born on 7 January 1827, probably in Bythorn, Huntingdonshire.

John G. had a brother and a sister. Eliza, b. 1829, stayed in England. Everett Tansley Bennett, b. 1839, died in 1846.

Mary Tansley was one of 8 children of Everard/Everitt Tansley (1775-1835). My mother Coraleen Mary, was born a Tansley in Naseby, Northamptonshire. The only living relative of this Tansley line is my aunt Eda, still living in Naseby, aged 92.

I hope you find this useful. I have some photographs of Pilton village and church. If you email me on, I will send them on.
