  • William Bennet was baptized on 7 April 1734 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Utrecht, Kings Co., Long Island, New York.2
  • He married Elizabeth before 1762.2
  • William Bennet died between 7 October 1780 and 9 December 1785 ; (dates of will and proving).3
  • In 1780 William Bennet resided at Oyster Bay, Queens Co., Long Island, New York.3
  • His will was dated on 7 October 1780 William Bennet, of the township of Oyster Bay, Queens County. My debts to be paid out of my moveable estate, if not sufficient then my Executors to sell such of my real estate as to discharge my debts and nomore. If my moveable estate should be likely to overpay my debts my Executors to save the best of my household goods and let my family have the use of them till my youngest daughter be eighteen then living. If after said sales there should be some "overplush" money after my debts are paid, then it to be put at interest for the benefit of my children. I order my Executors to sell my real estate when my youngest daughter is eighteen or when my youngest child is eighteen or twenty, as life is uncertain, the proceeds to be divided as follows: To my beloved wife Elizabeth, one third of the money; to my son Henry, £50; the remainder equally divided between all my children, Elizabeth, Abigail, Phebe, Henry and Sarah, at the time my place is sold; also the household goods that my family have the use of to be divided between all my children living when my place is sold. I make my friend, James Carpenter, Executor, and my neighbors, William Mudge, Isaac Coles and Jordan Coles, all of the township above mentioned, my Executors, they to be reasonably paid for their time and expence. Dated 7th day of the 19th month 1780. Witnesses, James Armstrong, Robert Russel, Jacob Coles (of Oyster Bay, yeoman). Proved at Queens County, 9 December 1785.3
  • The style in which is will is dated (7th day of 10th month 1780), and the fact that baptism records for children are not found in the Oyster Bay Dutch Church, may imply that William was a Quaker.

William Bennet1

b. 21 March 1744
  • William Bennet was baptized on 21 March 1744 at Reformed Dutch Church, Churchville, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania; sponsors Willem Bennet and Geertje Suydam.2
  • He is said to have married Elizabeth Wynkoop before 1768 (proof of the identity of William Bennet's wife is lacking).3
  • William Bennet was a Revolutionary War soldier. Served as a Trooper in the Light Horse of Bucks County, commissioned 10 May 1778.3
  • The wife of William Bennet, and mother of his three children is stated to be Elizabeth Wynkoop, sister to Gerardus Wynkoop who was the husband of William's sister Elizabeth Bennet. This as stated by Ledley in NYGBR 94 (1963):213. The baptism records of the three children do not record a mother (probably because the mother was not baptized herself and was not a member of the church). The sponsor for two of the baptisms was an Elizabeth Wynkoop. The identification of Elizabeth Wynkoop as William Bennet's wife is questionable.
