Thanks Emeltee.

I've not found a tree yet that helps. He was a journalist and became a newspaper owner in NSW.

Thanks gibbo.

What site were those shipping records from? I'm not familiar with that format or did you reformat the details?

NSW state archives, unassisted. When the indexes come up click on the "details and purchase" of the one you want to check out and that format come up.

What has FS done to their site?

I can't select 1841 or 1851 census now. Ok, I selected all census type records as a filter and got this.

No Results for Name: benjamin bennett Birthplace: leicestershire Birth Year (Range): 1830 - 1832 Country: England Record Type: Census, Residence, and Lists

Thanks gibbo.

I can't find them either. Not sure if they are in London/Middx or not.

Some of 1841 is missing.
