Found this site by accident but it is wonderful. Have passed details onto a Frewin descendent that I met via research.
Bennett is the nephew of my Gt.Gt. Grandfather Thomas Henry Tanner (He was brother of Elizabeth Tanner - wife of Richard Frewin)
Bennett was witnes at the marriage of Alice Charlotte Tanner and Thomas Bennett my Great Grand parents. (Bennett is my maiden name)
Bennett and Martha are on the 1871 Census in Hampstead London
RG10/194 Folio 43 Page 14/15 Household schedule 58.
Martha is Housekeeper to the Ouchterlony family and Bennett is also there.It is a very interesting set of records.
The Ouchterlony family is most interesting. James was a Coffee Planter in the East Indies. He brought servants back to this country with him. He leased an area from the Rajah of Nilambur for Rs 1500 down and rental of Rs 20 a year and founded what was known as the Ouchterlony Valley and later became the Lauriston Estate.'
Bennett and Martha did not appear to have any children so may be there are not many folkout there looking for him.
