Looking for the Benn family that immigrated to South Africa
My family start with William Benn married to Hannah Apsey, they had 4 children, one John Benn, married to Elizabeth Day had 11 children one of them William is my decedent.
My 2 great grandfather William Benn, and his brothers came to South Africa, I think in the 1830, and lived first in Swellendam and then moved toe George, Knysna and Oudshoorn in the Western Cape, South Africa.
William was born in Deptford, England and lived in George until he died.
He was a hotel owner, he was married to Mary Frances Smith and they had 9 children, John Adrian Bernardus, Elizabeth Sarah, Sophia Charlotte, Annie Jane, Mary Frances, William John James (my great grandfather), Charlotte Amelia, Amelia and John Henry.
I am researching this family, if anyone can help, please email me.
