Still trying to locate my cousin Robert. Where are you? Someone suggested that they thought he was running a B and B on the south coast but try as I might I can't find him.
Have tried this route before without success after trying several hints from Genes members.
Think he had 2 daughters Amanda and Sarah (yes I have tried Facebook).

I thought it was worth a second try.
Thanks to all
Lynne (Bentham)

Please can you post a link to the previous thread so time isn't wasted on duplicating what is already found?

Who was his wife?

Difficult to say but the best bet is a Judith Roberts wedding 1968 Richmond on Thames.
I've gone with that one (haven't sent for the certificate as I now have a number that are wrong) as Robert is given just as Robert, the other Robert Bentham's have a middle initial and he didn't.

Looks like she remarried in 1982 to a Routledge. She appears in Shropshire and Fife in recent electoral rolls.

If you google her name plus Whitchurch you will see she has links to the local church and W.I.

Hi Rose

Apparently this lady is quite ill at the moment so have made contact with someone connected to the church who hopefully is going to talk to her.

Hi Rose

You'll be pleased to hear that I have made contact with my long lost cousin Robert. Judith Routledge is his ex wife and she forwarded my letter to him. He actually lives about a 45 min drive away from me so we are getting together in the Easter holidays.
It's times like this that make FH so worthwhile.
Thank you for your help.
Lynne
