  • Notes 
    • According to a family source, Richard was the local miller at Pontdolgoch village near Llanwnog.

      The family below appears to be the right family, from the Llanidloes parish of Llanidloes, 1851 census.
      Columns are: no. of household ___; name of street/place/road, & name/no. of house; name & surname of each person in the house on night of 30 March 1851; relation to head of family; condition; age (different columns for genders); rank, profession, or occupation; where born (county & town); blind or deaf/dumb (not marked for these individuals).
      Household #39.
      Green Cottage.
      Richard Benbow Jun, Head, U, 20, Carrier, Montgomeryshire Aberhafesp.
      Do [ditto] Richard Do Sen., Father, Mar, 46, Miller, Do Do.
      Elizabeth Do, Mar [married], 47, Do Wife, Do Newtown.
      Ann Do, Sister, Un, 10, Scholar, Do Llanllwchaiarn.
      Edward Do, Brother, 7, Scholar, Do Llanwnog.
      Charles Do, Do, 5, Do, Do Do.

      The gap between the son Richard and the daughter Ann is large enough that it is possible that Elizabeth was Richard's second wife, and that the son Richard was born to a previous wife who died. This needs to be researched.

      The 1871 census records show this household in the parish, municipal borough, and town of Llanidloes, household 72, "the Warf":
      Richard Benbow, head, widr, 66, furnaceman, Do [for Montgomeryshire] Aberhafesp
      Charles Do, son, unm, 26, bricklayer, Do Llanwnog
