    As I got confused I added a test tree on ancestry and not sure about the Fanny, Eliza and Sarah dixon parents that is just a guess, from a marriage record that came up.

    It was such a long thread and it has have moved on somewhat from the Larkhams and Bartlett that I thought it might be an idea to start a new thread. For the benefit of other members we just need a short history of what the Bennett/Dixon family with mention of the will I think, would that be a the best way for you to carry on this thread Karen?

    I got to a brick wall finding parents. I had thought if Eliza was first born that could be mother's name.

    I then checked Ann age at death and think she is first born now. I can only assume that there were only the 2 sisters surviving at the time of the will. But he may have not left money to all especially as they were not his family.

    So need to find a sister to Fanny and Mary Ann, and then their parents

    In case anyone can help further, from the past thread...

    In David's will 1860, he name his wife's family

    https://www.ancestry.co.uk/mediaui-v...hstart=default

    Niece Eliza Sperring
    Niece Sarah Gates
    Niece Fanny Bennett
    plus the Terrill family

    William Terrill marries Ann Bennett 1832 St Thomas Salisbury by Lic. William and Ann die before 1851 census

    1841 Wiltshire

    https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M73G-887
    William Terrill 35
    Ann Terrill 30.....NOT born in county
    William Terrill 9
    Charles Terrill 7
    Henry Terrill 6
    Lousia Terrill 5
    Eliza Terrill 2
    Fanny Bennett 30.....NOT born in county......born 1808 from death certificate
    Fanny Dixon 60

    The census for Louisa Terril 1851 has her with Eliza Sperring in Gloucestershire

    https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGBH-ZH6

    Eliza Sperring 38 born Alderbury, Buckinghamshire wid schoolmistress
    Louisa A Terrill 12

    This could be her marriage, it was also announced in the Salisbury newspaper as she was late of this city and Edward was of Antigua

    Record set Hertfordshire Banns & Marriages
    First name(s) Eliza
    Last name Bennett
    Year 1832
    Marriage year 1832
    Marriage date 31 Oct 1832
    Place Hemel Hempstead, St Mary

    Spouse's last name Sperring
    Groom's parish Hemel Hempstead
    Bride's parish Hemel Hempstead
    County Hertfordshire
    Country England

    ? 1841 as Eliza Spring wid schoolmistress

    https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...=successSource

    Fanny Dixon is still alive 1851 in Dunstable, Bedfordshire

    https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bi...off=&ml_rpos=1

    Fanny Dixon 73 born Hendon, Wiltshire (c 1778)
    Elizabeth Field 65

    So we have Fanny Dixon c 1778+, Mary Ann Dixon/Terril c 1794 (from burial age) as Carolyn says above.
