I would be delighted to trace any descendants of the Benson or Lockwood family of East Butterwick. The last Benson who seemed to live in East Butterwick was William Wilkinson Benson who moved to Hull around 1900. Are there any Lockwoods or Bensons still living in that area?

Yes it is in North Lincolnshire, I have tried to trace via the phone book but it was not a success. I though I'd give this a try as a final attempt.
