    3. Benjamin BACKHOUSE bap 23 August 1829 Tackett St Independent Church, Ipswich, Suffolk, England. father: Benjamin Backhouse (variously described as stonemason and architect) mother: Mary Ann, formerly Prentice, nee FULLER. married: (i) 20 August 1849, Ipswich SFK, ENG. to Lydia Warne JOHNSON (ii) 16 Dec 1903, Sydney AUS. to Emma SANDAY died: 29 July 1904 "Ardath", Queen St, Rushcutters Bay, NSW, AUS. buried: 30 July 1904, Church of England section, Rookwood Cemetery, NSW, AUS. He was my great great grandfather. There is usually some conflict or wrong information in books about his mother. It is confusing but here it is: Benjamin BACKHOUSE snr married Mary Ann FULLER formerly Prentice 5 April 1822, and had at least 7 children. Mary Ann FULLER born 13 March 1795 Beccles SFK, bap 29 April 1795 Beccles SFK father: Thomas FULLER mother: Mary CHENERY married, firstly, 25 September 1817, Beccles SFK to George PRENTICE and had the following children: Mary Ann Fuller PRENTICE bap 12 July 1818 George PRENTICE bap 16 May 1820 Her husband George PRENTICE dies. Mary Ann Prentice nee Fuller then marries, secondly, Benjamin Backhouse in 1822 as above. Mary Ann BACKHOUSE, formerly Prentice, nee Fuller died 28 September 1842. BUT prior to this Benjamin had taken up with the daughter Mary Ann Fuller PRENTICE, and had children with her. In the 1841 and 1851 censuses, both 'wives' are Mary Ann and the children could have been the same family. Just thought I would set the record straight about Benjamin BACKHOUSE jnr's mother. He is the architect who practiced in Geelong with Reynolds, and in Ipswich, QLD (where I now live), as well as Sydney NSW. Regards Yolande. -- No virus found in this outgoing message.
