Having recently discovered Benthams in my family line, I am particularly interested in James and Letitia Bentham and their family.
James was born 14 Jan 1829 in Standish, Lancs the son of George Bentham and Alice Mason.
He married Letitiaabout 1848-9, possibly in Standish Their story is a particularly sad one. I have been unable to find their marriage date or place so far,or Letitia's maiden name, but have found their gravestone in St Wilfred's churchyard in Standish, where Letitia is buried with three of her children: Elizabeth, age 16 months William, age 9 months Sarah Ann, age 1 month also Letitia, their mother, age 29
If you can help in any way, or know of any link with your family, please get in touch. Thanks.
