I am currently researching the Shepherd family in Dartford, Kent.
I have found a William Benning who married in Dec 1878 possibly to an Elizabeth (NFD)
Their children were Thomas, Elizabeth, Harry, Claire, Amelia, Isabella, Edith and Edwin.
Edwin, born in 1888/89 went on to marry Cecilea/Cecelia Anne Douse.
I would be grateful for any further info you might have.
