Benoke family – Allen descendants

June Murphy has just sent me a lot of information on the family of her great grandfather Hooper Scott Benoke, and from it I’ve been able to to work out that June and I are 5th cousins, and we are both descended from William and Ann Allen of Winscombe, Somerset.

The Allen family seems to have been quite prolific. At various times I’ve discovered mysterious cousins staying with Hayes relatives in censuses in Bristol, and have gradually been tracking them down, and most have turned out to be Allen descendants. Some of the surnames of descendants are Hayes, Williams, Hill, Purnell, Nipper, Benoke and there are probably many more to be discovered.

  1. Read you post on genealogy, we have just launched family based social network- Kincafe. We would like you to particpate in beta release of Kincafe and provide feedback to us at andy@kincafe.com

  2. Well the Kincafe thing sounds interesting, but your Blogger profile was “not available” — perhaps you could provide a link to it somewhere.
