I hope this information may be of use to you:
Joseph Bennett (great grandfather): b1842 Cutthorpe, Derbyshire
Furnaceman. No females mentioned
Benjamin Bennett (grandfather): b1881 7 Tower Hill, Brightside Bierlow, Yorkshire
Collier. Married a Welsh girl in Wales.
Joseph John Bennett (father):b1918 to 1991 Penclawdd, Swansea, Wales
Joel Bennett (myself): b1964 to present Llanelli, Wales
I have no idea of what the Cutthorpe area is like but I imagine it as beautiful as you are so near the Peak District there. I can understand Steel being the motivation behind mid 19th century migration and its decline seeing my grandfather moving down to the mining communities here in Wales.
I really wondered if anyone could possibly add anything to this or indeed take something away for their own collection.
