The Bennison family has been traced back to the Hindley and Leigh areas of Cheshire, where they were colliers (as in mining coal) and farmers. The earliest ancestor to whom we have clear links is Peter Bennison who was probably born in 1742 (he was baptised 6 Nov 1742).
The "Family Tree" link is to a set of pages which includes both Bennisons and other surnames. It includes all non-living people in this database, so has more details of families of spouses etc, but has less detail about individuals than is shown for Peter Bennison's descendants.
Please note that the surname link on this page leads to an individual set of pages produced by genealogy software; the links within those pages shown as "Home" etc only take you back to the start of those pages - you will need to use your browser's "Back" button (or reload this site from scratch) to get back here.

Most of the original research into the Bennison family was done by S.C. Wallwork.
