Hi again Sue, thanks for the will information re: the Bensons. I did notice that William and Esthers marriage licence was a 'special licence' perhaps due to his age? I have been meaning to join the IOMFHS for some time now, so I will pop them a cheque in the post this week. I will keep digging at my william Benson and if anything comes up, I will let you know the outcome if thats ok, just by way of thanking you for your help. Thanks again.
