I have Alexander Benson born 3 June 1860 in Richmond, married Isabella Mary Thew on 2 June 1886, died 15 May 1906 in Richmond.
The lady who sent me all these details also sent me the descendant list of the Bensons. She and I are doing the Thew family.
Hope this helps a bit.

Have just realised I'm already in touch with you re the Thews. Just ignore this answer about the Bensons.

Thanks for that info but I have already been in contact with O'Brien's site. These are definitely my people but I can't find anyone researching the Benson's except myself.
Hough's,Thew's,Rixon's all married into my Benson line and there is plenty about them.
I want to contact a Benson if there is anyone out there.
Thanks again.
