Thanks Gibbo.

Perry Benjamin, birth year 1846 Arrival year 1866

That fits well with age at death.

Ok then he was not born about 1852 so he was several years older.

Im confused as to why he had started using the name William, then i wonder if i have the right fella but bit of a coincidence having a Benjamin Perry on the same passenger list as the Bennet's??

I can't find a baptism that fits for John around 1810.

Ditto Charlotte around 1820.

Perhaps neither were baptised near the pob given in the census.
