The Bennett Family Tree

England to Livonia, Michigan

This is the genealogy of the Bennett family tree. According to the Immigrant Ship Transcribers Guild, my Bennett family came over on the Ship Vibilia, from London, England to New York.  The ship arrived in New York, New York, on September 17, 1836.  From the passenger list, it lists Thomas Bennett, 37 years old, male, Farmer, and Daniel Bennett, 21 years old, male, farmer.  According to the Index of Landowners in 1876, Thomas owned 98 acres on Section 33 in Livonia Township.   The family grew over the next several decades.  Because of the family growing the acres of land was divided up to between the descendants. From the 1880 census, it stated that Thomas was a widowed retired farmer who was born in England and both of his parents were born in England. To the left is the Bennett Coat of Arms.  Below is an outline report of my 3rd Great-grandfather’s family.  Since I have not found out where they were born in England, it would love to connect with anyone who is researching this family.
