I am not to my knowledge descendant of your Benjamin.
I AM, however, the great granddaughter of the William Gladstone Hutchinson you mention. I have been trying to find out more about any of the family left behind in England. If you are able to prove this cousin connection, PLEASE let me know.
I do know names and (approx.) years of birth of my great grandfather's parents, siblings and one cousin, Florence WHALLEY. I have the census info from 1881 when Florence was living with my them. They lived in Little Bolton and William Gladstone Hutchinson's father (also William) was a smallwares dealer and silk dresser.
And of course I know that William Gladstone Hutchinson ended up in California where he married my great grandmother, Margy (Huckaby) Hutchinson.
Gosh, now I'm really excited! Hope this pans out.
