Daniel Benyon
m. Mary
1. Richard Benyon, Governor of Fort St. George (East Indies), later of Gidea Hall (Essex) (b 26.11.1698, bur 04.10.1774)
m(3). (18.07.1745) Mary Tyssen (bpt 16.01.1715, bur 27.09.1777, dau of Francis Tyssen of Hackney (by Rachel, dau of Richard de Beauvoir), widow of Powlett Wrighte)
  A. Richard Benyon of Gidea Hall 'of Englefield' (b 28.06.1746, d 22.08.1796)
  m. (03.09.1767) Hannah Hulse (d 27.04.1828, dau of Sir Edward Hulse of Breamore, 2nd Bart)
  i. Richard Benyon, later Powlett-Wrighte, later Benyon-De-Beauvoir of Englefield House, Sheriff of Berkshire (b 28.04.1770, dsp 1854)
  m. (27.09.1797) Elizabeth Sykes (d 29.10.1822, dau of Sir Francis Sykes of Basildon Park)
  ii. Hannah Elizabeth Benyon (d 05.10.1852)
  m. (30.03.1813) Edward Fellowes of Liddle Gidding (dsp 21.10.1841, Vice Admiral)
  iii. Emma Benyon (d 27.01.1862)
  m. (23.07.1805) William Henry Fellowes of Ramsey Abbey (d 23.08.1837)
One of their sons inherited Englefield House and assumed the name Benyon.
  iv. Charlotte Benyon (d 07.1854)
  m. (1799) Joseph (not Richard) Berens of Kevington (d 11.01.1853)
  v. Maria (Mary) Benyon (b 08.03.1772, d 14.01.1852)
  Maria is not mentioned by BLG1952 but is by Berry. TCP ('Midleton and Brodrick of Midleton') identifies the Viscountess as Mary, dau of Richard Benyon of Englefield House (formerly of Gidea Hall) by Lavinia, dau/coheir of James Smyth of St. Audries, but there is no mention of Lavinia by either BLG1952 or Berry. Since that Lavinia Smyth was mother of Maria's brother-in-laws, Edward & William Henry Fellowes, we suspect that TCP made a mistake on this.

  B. Mary Benyon (b c1725, d 06.09.1765) probably of this generation
  m. (20.11.1756) Eliab Harvey of Claybury Hall (b 1716, d 1769)
