    Notes 
    • A blacksmith of Boughton between 1816 and 1827.
      Granted administration of father's estate on 1 May 1822 at Canterbury Consistory Court. Administration revalued on 22 April 1829.

      1841 census: in Boughton Street, Boughton, Stephen (45, blacksmith), Stephen Jnr. (20, labourer), Sarah Ann (15) and Frances (14). Stephen would have been a widower at that time.

      1851 census: the entry at East Street, Harrietsham, Kent probably refers: Stephen (59, lodger, widower, journeyman blacksmith).

      1861 census: Stephen lived at Hickmans Green Cottage, Ville of Dunkirk, Kent: Stephen (66, blacksmith), 'wife' Jane (41), Susanna (18), Isabella (13), Matilda (9) and Anna (2). Stephen and Jane don't appear to have married. Susanna, Isabella and Matilda were registered as BENGE. Cliff Minter has found baptismal records for Susanna BENGE, Isabella BENGE and Matilda BENGE, and for George Bolton BENGE - all four were illegitimate children of Jane BENGE. Anna was registered as Anne MINTER.
      Cliff also found baptisms for illegitimate children of HANNAH BENGE, possibly Jane's sister: Martha Anne Burns BENGE (bap. 24 January 1841 at Harrietsham) and Mary Anne BENGE (bap. 11 June 1843 at Harrietsham).

      From ancestry's England, Select Births and Christenings, 1538-1975, it appears that Stephen and Jane had a son, Harry, who was baptised at Boughton under Blean on 22 May 1864 and whose death was registered in 1868. Less easy to understand is the baptism on the same day of a daughter, Annie. Perhaps this was a second baptism of Anne, born in 1859.

      1871 census: in Colonels Lane, Boughton, Kent, Stephen (76, blacksmith), Jane (50) and Anna (11).

      1881 census: now a widow, Jane (60) lived in Broom Street, Graveney, Kent.

      1891 census: Jane (71) still lived in Broom Street but head of the household was now John GOODWIN, husband of daughter Anna [Anne].

      Death registration gives age at death as 76 but buried as of Ospringe aged 82.
