Family Tree of Ruth Hounsell born 1779

The first two generations of this are speculative - but the name Benjamin does seem to be confined to this family group.  the records of the Unitarian Chapel in Bridport show Hannah Hounsell, Benjamin, Elizabeth and Ruth all being baptised on the same day.  Hannah's entry is separate from the three children.  I've assumed her husband to be a Benjamin - he doesn't appear on the register - perhaps he was dead - Info from Ruth Hounsell
