I am searching for anyone associated with my great g grandmother's family her name was Matilda Bennewith b 1852 I think her father was Thomas BENNEWITH (Licensed Victualler) m Lucy Riley. There are a lot of Bennewiths in this area and I need to find the right one. Matilda married Arthur A Gear in Hackney 1886. One of the witnesses was a Lillie Bennewith.There seems to be a link with a Samuel CLAYDON.

red mail Clift
Am hoping to find out anything about Sarah Clift and her family. She married Benjamin Bartram on Foulness in 1797 but does not appear to have been born there as she does not appear in the parish register under baptisms. She had at least 2 children Hannah and Thomas. Moved to North Shoebury but cannot trace her death. There is a Clift family in Great Wakering but I cannot place her there.

red mail Rawlings of Foulness island
My grandfather was Alfred Rawlings. His father was George Rawlings, married to Rachel Harrod.Any info on either.
My ancestors were called Battram on various official documents but I believe were originally Bartram. Thomas Battram was born on Foulness around 1798 (he and a sibling Hannah were baptised as Bartram in that year) to Benjamin and Sarah Bartram. Hannah was buried in April 1799. I cannot find any other evidence of this family in the 18th century. Thomas moved to North Shoebury by 1841 census. Any information gratefully received. Bev
