henry bennett i have had some help with the following but would appreciate a little more if possible form any one in the bolton area, i have a g grandfather named henry bennett born aug 30th 1852 registered in ormskirk, he moved to warrington i dont know if it was with his family as a youngster or as a young man,i do know he married mary tomlinson (from warrington ) in warrington around the early to middle 1870s they had 3 children john william, joseph, and ellen, as my grandfather joseph lived his early life in warrington and married there i had presumed that the family was complete as no other siblings show any where. how ever i recieved information from a third party that my g grandfather did have at least one other child a daughter born in little hulton nr bolton (this begs the question did he divorce his first wife or did she die and the children raised by her family) this third party has supposedly met this daughter how ever my attempts to contact her via email have met with no response even though she left her email address for me to contact her, i can only suppose she has either changed her email or as she was very old died. the whole point of this is any one visiting bolton library that has a little spare time could they please look for any information on the said henry bennett and any children. regards ray bennett
