Michael. Are you in England or Australia?

I am intrigued by the Romany connection. I thought it just might have been a random thing but from the many postings, it seems that many Beaneys have this connection.

Does anyone know when the Romany's came to England and their history?

Surnames: beeney,beaney,
i have paper work writen by a relation (now dead)who has done lots of research and had in 1958 gone to visit his great uncle who remembered travelling from wales in the 1870's with his parents and siblings with a hand cart .they travelled to horse fairs.four of the family Robert,Samuel,Ruth and Louise settled in kent and sussex the others ended up mostly in the portsmouth and I.O.Wight areas.There will be a variance on spelling of the name as most had little or no education so names were spelt by various registars etc.

Surnames: BEANEY, BEENEY, BEENY, BENEY, BENY...et al....
My great grandfather was Edgar BEENEY, III (twin) b.14 OCT 1860 Ashburnham, Sussex, England. He married Harriet Elizabeth FRENCH b.3 SEP 1869 Netherfield, Sussex, England. They moved to the Ontario, Canada area and had several children, one being my grandfather, William BEENEY b.14 MAY 1896 Tilsonburg, Ontario, Canada. He married Alice JONES b.2 APR 1896 (I'm thinking Ontario, Canada, but I don't want to put that information here until I know for certain). My grandparents were visiting Flint, Michigan, USA when my grandmother went into labor and had my father, Jack BEENEY b.16 JUL 1924 there...or this is the story that I was told all of my life whilst growing up in Michigan.

They had one more child, Lillian BEENEY (now HENRY) of whom I have been searching for to see if she is still with the living or not. I'd love it if she were still with us because I have some good news for her! My daughter's about to give birth this Fall to a baby girl (my 2nd grandchild!) and is going to name her after my Aunt. She'd really love to hear about that.

And the rest...is history! :D

Hi
I have just seen your message - bit late I know but in case you are still searchng for James George Beaney here is what I know (well a summary anyhow).
Mother Sarah, Father George b1804 d Aug 1830 - labourer. Brother George b Mar 1826 and sister Sarah be 1830/1 d after June 1891. Lived in Northgate Street when James was born
James George worked as shop boy for a chemist - Mr Purvis of Princes Street and then as an assistant to Mr Rigden at Canterbury dispensary from age 15 - He nursed Mr Purvis in old age so whether he lived there I don't know.

1851 census records show him visiting Mary and John Whale at 22 Bekesbourne Hill where a Sarah Beaney (Mary's mother) was also living at the time - so I guess there must have some sort of family connection albeit perhaps distant. That is the only record I can find.

I have loads of other details of hs later life in Australia if you are interested however this is about it for England -records are very scarce.

Do please let me know if you have found out anymore as I find this guy fascinating - any wouldlove to pin down his exact relationship to me - all hear say and family rumour at the moment.

Regards
Alexa

PS - Records for James' parents are under Beney
