Descendants of Amice Benest

This tree was added to the site in 2011 and reviewed in 2019. The tree as submitted was lacking in any detail and would probably have been refused if it had been received later, when controls were more rigorous. It has proved impossible to find records to support many of the family groups previously shown in generations 4 and 5. We have only retained those individuals whose presence is supported either by a baptism or a marriage record

Record Search

If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.
