I am researching John William Bebbington for a friend.Here is what she has so far: F.F. Bebbington, a successful farmer and representative citizen of Ashford, Windham County,CT, was b. Dec. 26, 1852 in Mansfield, CT., son of John & Eunice (Gurley) Bebbington, the latter a native of Mansfield. John Bebbington, the father of F.F., was b. about 1824, in Cheshire England, & came to the U.S. when a boy in his 'teens. The trip was made in a sailing vessel, & when it reached the harbor of NYc Mr. Bebbington landed with an almost empty pocket. His destination was Mansfield, CT, where his sister Mary Jane the wife of Thomas Turner, was located. This is a very prominent CT family, & we are trying to find the names of the parents of William John Bebbington, as that is thought to be his full name, in other words, his English roots.
