    BENSON LINE setting the scene
    The Benson branch of my tree starts around 1750 in Passenham, Northamptonshire with the birth of Thomas Benson. In 1771 he probably married Mary Littleford before going on to have six children.

    Corporal Hugh 'Pop' Benson OBE, Major, MC .... or perhaps not ? After fighting in three wars, he died aged 62 in a POW camp, given military honours by friend and foe alike. He was "generous to a fault, kindly, and often took guard duties and unpleasant chores away from younger chaps in the Regiment." A fascinating story.

    The Mount, Sparepenny Lane, Farningham, Dartford DA4 0JH
    Sparepenny Lane got its name in the 18th century when you could spare a penny by using the lane instead of the toll road at the other end of the village. The Mount is one of three large manor houses in the village.
