if your related to the bennetts of yorkshire the bennett name originates as bennett in the early 1300's but before then it was basset and the family is from nearly the top of british nobility. i dont know why it changed exactly but it may have something to do with the white ship disaster of about 1128 when the british nobility was shuffled and we were skyrocketed to the top. we came to england on the request of king stephen as his royal treasurer and controller of state funds due to their friendship that started in their teen years in rheims.
