Surnames: Bensted (Benstead)
William R.A. Bensted b. 1846 m. Mary Ann Ros in 1873 and emigrated to Australia in 1874. A descendant of Williams has uploaded family tree to WorldConnect but no contact address. I am the g.grandaughter of William's brother Thomas Joseph Allen Bensted and would love to hear from you to exchange info.
Also looking for descendants of Bensteads from East London c.1800's, and of Ethel Amelia b. 1901, William Albert b. 1903 and Florence Agnes b. 1905 all in Bromley and Alfred Ernest b. 1907 in West Ham.

Probably not right area but I'm stuck on some Bensteads! My ancestor Annie Amelia Benstead was born at St Giles in the Fields in Q4 1847 and her father was called Joseph and was a travelling salesman. They don't appear on any census prior to her marriage in 1875.

Hi Lynn,
Sorry for delay in replying. I am afraid I cannot see any connection with my branch of the Bensted's at the moment, although the name Amelia crops up in my tree too. I am wondering whether Annie's father, Joseph, could possibly have been a brother of my great great grandfather, John (b.Abt. 1808). I only know that John's father was called Thomas. I do not know his mother's name. Joseph's children, including Annie Amelia, would have been born about the same time as John's. I have not yet discovered any of John's siblings - so it is always a possibility.

I'll keep your email for future reference - just in case!

Hope you are lucky with your research.

Hello Christine Huxtable.
I don't know if this will be of any help to you or not, but my grand-father ( Charles Benstead) was born in St. George-Hanover Square and my father (Alfred Benstead) was born in Acton.
And, I believe, both places are now in East London.
