Documentation sent by Roberta as evidence of the Marsh/Hunloke connection The Registers of St. Vedast, foster Lane, and of St. Mich a d le Quern, London, edited by Willoughby A. Littledale, M.A., F.S.A., Vol II, Marriages and Burials, London, 1903, pp 1,2,123:
MARRIAGES at Ct. Vedast list "Nicholas Marshe and Margaret... were married the xviith day of September 1559" and "Henry Hunlocke and Margaret Marshe were married the Firste day of February 1564."
BURIALS at St. Vedast list "Margarett Shewte was buried the xxvth day of September 1563. Nich'as M'she [Nicholas Marshe], Inholder, was buried the same day." The Registers of St. Vedast, Foster Land, and of St. Michael le Quern, London, edited by Willoughby A. Littledale, M.A., F.S.A., Vol I, Christenings, London, 1902, p 2:
CHRISTENINGS at St. Vedast list "Judith Marche was christned the viiith day of December 1560 [note correction, not 1561 as listed in the last issue]."
Editor's note: If indeed these are the correct parties, the above appears to validate Roberta's contention that Judith Marsh, who married William Benedict, was Henry Hunloke's stepdaughter, thereby eliminating any ancestral tie to the Hunloke line. It would invalidate other theories in current and older articles, books, etc. such as the one quoted in the last issue in St. John and Harries... by Ben LeGrande Cash, 1973 regarding the maternal ancestry Thomas Benedict1. (For further data and full citation, please refer back to the BFN article cited above)
From Barbara Boell 6 July 1994, who sent us the above article: "I enjoyed your article on Anne Hunlocke. It makes sense...hope more collaborating data shows up."
A letter, copied in its entirely, from RoseMari Finter, Salt Lake City, UT 14 June 1994:
"I found Roberta Pierson's article most helpful in that it answered some questions which I had concerning this connection--particularly the discrepancy in ages between the individuals concerned. I could not reconcile Henry Hunloke with a daughter Ann young enough to be Thomas Benedict's mother in lieu of his and his wife's ages. The only way that could have fit was to have her as a 'natural daughter.' Mrs. Pierson's thesis certainly clears up this concern.
"The note from John Insley Coddington regarding the second marriage of Margaret Walker is a key inasmuch as if this was her oldest child, she would have been born about 1540 which would make her about 37 at the time of Henry's birth. She might have been born earlier if Judith is [was] not her first child. This makes it extremely unlikely that the Ann named in her husband's will would be her child as she would be over 50 at the time of Ann's birth. Although such a situation is possible, it is highly improbable.
"I would be interested in obtaining the source information for the marriage of Henry Benedicke and Judith Marsh and that of Ann Benedicke and Robert Haggar. I have been uneasy about the Hunloke connection because the social class involved does not fit with the majority of the immigrants to New England. If Thomas had an uncle who was the Sheriff of Derbyshire why would he emigrate to New England? I have seen that note about Thomas being a weaver several places but cannot cite the sources at this time. (See "Responding..." later on this page)
Carolyn Childress - Lakeland FL, is one of the founding "mothers" and contributors to BEN and has been having some severe health problems of late. From all of us to you, Carolyn, the Benedicts pray for a complete recovery. Carolyn and I met in person at the National Genealogical Society Conference in Jacksonville, Florida several years ago. From that brief meeting sprang the idea of a national networking system for Benedicts (hence, BFN).
Help! I have started compiling a book (or whatever it becomes) of American Civil War veterans, both Union and Confederate, buried in California. If any subscribers have ancestors buried here, collateral or otherwise, please let me know. If those of you in California belong to a genealogical society that has compiled any countywide cemetery data listing those veterans, please tell them I am interested in obtaining a copy. Remember - Only American Civil War Veterans buried in California.
Barbara Boell - Bowie, MD has requested an article about George Benedict because as she says, " ..now that the Williams are pretty much out of the lineage." Barbara also would like to see more articles about towns where the early Benedicts lived.
James Lewis - Huntington Beach, CA comments that his only "proven" Benedict is Saffrona who m Moses Granger 3 Mar 1825, Franklin Co OH. She died 26 April 1841, age 40 yrs, and is buried in Flint Cemetery, Sharon Twp. After her death Moses married Irena her sister, who died 27 Feb 1848, age 29 yrs.
Joyce Hangman - Napa CA, sent in a query about "James Benedict V who married Dolly Comstock..." It is listed with the others in the "Queries" Section of BFN. However, just a point - page 290, GBA, Vol. I shows "19. James5 ...m. Dolly Comstock. He settled in the north part of town of Norfolk, Ct., soon after its incorporation. He was a voter, town meeting, Dec. 12, 1758. He lived and died in Norfolk. The order of birth of his children not ascertained." It goes on to list four sons, etc.
Nancy Gazan - Lansing MI, sent an article from the November, 1993 "Victoria" magazine. On pages 33 - 34 is reference to "....such turn-of-the-century classics as Jennie Benedict's 'Blue Ribbon Cookbook, a renowned ode to Southern cooking " Nancy would like to know if anyone has any information about Jennie Benedict - is she related by blood, marriage or ?. If so, contact Nancy at 6737 Springtree Lane, Lansing, MI 48910. Nancy s letter indicates she is " ...a collector of cookbooks and an afficionado of cooking...."
Mary Ann Gohr - Pitman NJ, sent a listing from Southold, L.I. List of Inhabitants, 1658 to 1686 and Other Information about Early Settlers from 1640 to 1686, Published 1981 by Wesley L Baker, Douglaston, NY, p1, in a Consolidated List cites "Thomas Benedict - Bought land in Hashamomuck 1649 with Tredwell & Whitney, sold 1659 (Ip17608)[?], at Huntington 1653, Jamaica 1664-5 (Moore p7)." The citation indicates the source as Town of Southold Personal Index Prior to 1698, compiled by Charles B. Moore, 1868.
And finally, from Diana N. Perkins, Redding, CA 13 June 1994: "What Mary Ann [Gohr] ponders is where the information about Thomas being a weaver came from. While visiting the DAR Headquarters in Washington, D.C., I came across a Benedict genealogy that had been copied from the family bible of Joanna Pruitt Leonard (compiled by Eileen Miles Charbo), 1932. It indicates that the Benedict genealogy is on file in the Kansas History Library, Topeka, KS. Diana quotes the genealogy as basically stating that "Thomas, the 4th generation Benedict...was a silk weaver apprentice."
Note - see GBA, V I, p 1 - "There was a tradition in the family...that they resided in the silk manufacturing district of France..."
Edith Cole11 - Alberta, Canada and Alverda Muncaster11 - Alberta, Canada are not just second cousins. Edith's mother was Edith Lillian Benedict Postill10 daughter of Roy Alden Benedict9 and Bertha Gale Bennett; Alverdas mother was Bernice Fayra Benedict Rear10 daughter of Alfred Eugene Benedict9 and Alverda Mae Bennett. Roy and Alfred were brothers; Bertha and Alverda were sisters. They were all born in Iowa and moved to Canada 1902 or 1903. Obviously, they have common great grandparents - Edwin James8, George7, Reuben6, Aaron5, Gideon4, Joseph3, John2, Thomas1 (Benedict).
According to the listing in GBA, Vol II, p 51, there is something else you might be interested in. The Bennett sister's mother, Sarah Ellen Hoover Bennett, was a cousin to President Herbert Hoover and also to Orville and Wilbur Wright.
What brought this particular family to the attention of BFN other than the fact that Edith and Alverda are subscribers? Edith Postill Cole has sent a portion of her grandmother's memoirs to the newsletter, along with a copyright release for our use only and for just the material sent. The memoirs tell of the arduous journey from the midwestern United States to Alberta, Canada at the turn of the century. It is very interesting (See Volume II, no. 2 of this newsletter) . Thank you Edith!
More and more states are attempting to pass legislation closing public vital records for periods ranging from 50 years up. Ohio just had this battle and genealogists were only partially successful.
In California, [shortly before this was originally published] a bill was narrowly defeated in the State Assembly that would severely limit access to public vital records (including dissolutions). It also required repositories to send all their records to Sacramento. According to "reliable sources" the author, Assemblywoman Grace Napolitano, Norwalk CA, may try again in the next session which starts in December. In the old bill, there was a clause allowing access for "scientific" research. Her staff suggested genealogists may fall in that category. However, the definition of scientific may or may not give any guarantees to access.
Many states already have severe restrictions and the trend may continue. It would be especially hard on the West where population started to swell in the late 19th and 20th century! Closing those records would virtually wipe out most genealogical research -period!
What to do? If you live in California and want to help, write your legislators and the Governor urging a no vote across the board. Out-of- state residents can write Governor, Pete Wilson, State Capitol Bldg, Sacramento, CA 95814. And, if your state is experiencing this type of crisis, please send in the information for posting.
The following are books containing data about Benedict ancestors. Regrettably, I do not have the name of all the subscriber(s) that sent in the photocopies. Some of these did come from Larry Benedict and Mary Ann Gohr but to the others, my apologies. These are old books and hard to locate. However, they contain details someone might need to complete a family history and to give life to their ancestors. Some might be found in the LDS library in Salt Lake City, other copies in collections located near or in the old towns:

I think that I shall never see
Such a twisted family tree
As one that's owned by you and me
Tom Benedict's heredity
Roots in Nottingham we were told
(Perhaps with Robin Hood so bold)
Then we learned that was old
Derbyshire was their stronghold
Now we learn that Henry Hunlocke
Must have been a mixed-up bloke
Just before he thought he'd croak
He tried to straighten out his folk
His step-son-in-law he named his son
With Ann Benedict he gave us fun
He called her daughter on the run
Yet she's his granddaughter, the only one
But now it seems we can forget
That Hunlocke list of long begets
They aren't our kin, now we can fret
And find Brigham's first wife and where they met
