Bennett family, blacksmiths of Rose Green.

The headstone of a grave at Glossop Parish Church which remembers James Bennet (1801-1875), Alice his wife and Alice his daughter also remembers Ann, the daughter of John and Sarah Bennett who died on 17 January 1751, and Mary, the daughter of Robert Barber of Little Padfield who died on 13 May 1754. Sarah Bennett was Mary's sister; they were both daughters of Robert Barber (see Barber family of Padfield, Deepclough and Torside).
John Bennett was a blacksmith who left a will written 21 December 1780 in which he names Sarah as his executrix, probate was granted to Sarah on 2 May 1781. For a possible linked family see Bennett family of Hilltop.
The fact that parish records have been lost means it is not possible to discover whether Robert Bennett (1778-1839) was the son or grandson of John and Sarah.
