Number of childrenBenjamin HAMPTONView this family
5

Note: The children on board the "Cornwall" were listed as James (18), Charles (7), James (17), Rebecca (16) and Diana (5). It is unusual to have two children with the same name and there is a large time difference between the births of James and Rebecca and the births of Charles and Diana. This opens the question of whether one of the James's and Rebecca are from a previous relationship of the Mother, Rebecca BURTON.
