Hello Louise, Thanks for your message. I cannot see a connection with your Samuel to my Ellen at this stage, but I do have a Samuel Benn in another branch of my tree who was perhaps born around the time you are talking about. I'm afraid I don't know very much about him, but he was married to Elizabeth JOWETT and they had a daughter called Ann BENN, who was born about 1860 in North Bierley. Ann married Leonard Ormondroyd in 1876 and at that time she was from Wibsey and her father, Samuel, was a worsted weaver. Does this fit with anything?
