Re: Hepplewhite, Benwell/Crook
My Great Grandfather was Robert Hepplewhite born at Callow(he says Durham) around 1842. He married Mary Hay (from Scotland) at Staveley in Derbyshire. There was another Hepplewhite there at that time......... a little more elevated- a manager........ and a William.
Robert gives his Father's name as William. A William did marry a Mary Hutton in 1817 at Heworth but I don't know if these are parents or Grandparents.Hutton appears as a middle name in at least the next two generations.
Can't help with the Benwell/Crook..... sorry
