I looked at the witnesses for the 1812 marriage of Henry BENSLEY and found a Charlotte who could sign her name. The others made their mark. On Henry's 2nd marriage in 1834 there was a Charlotte SMALLS who again signed her name. So this time 2 + 2 = 4. :biggrin: Somehow I have to prove she is Henry's sister and that their parents are a Henry BENSLEY & Mary FISHER.

James SMALLS & Charlotte BENSLEY
Marriage: 26 Dec 1824 Fransham, Norfolk

Date also 5 Dec 1824 Welborne, Norfolk so looks like Banns. I can't find a baptism for James but there are baptisms with that family name in Welborne.

Deaths Dec 1864
Smalls James Mitford 4b 213

Deaths Dec 1872
SMALLS Charlotte 76 Mitford 4b 197

I'd like a look up for Charlotte 1841 through to 1871 please.
