Looking for missing BENNETT lines of North Devon

Any information on BENNETT families who originate from Appledore in North Devon. Lines moved away in the late 1800s to South Wales, Weymouth, Ilfracombe, Plymouth and Canada. One line beleived to have gone to America having lived in Wales. The majority were all connected to the sea trade and Royal Navy. Many were owners and Masters of ships in the coastal trade esp Bristol Channel area.

Any info most welcome.

Thanks
