  • Name Matthew Bentley 
    Born 1 Apr 1820  Bewerley, Pateley Bridge, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Census records continuously put his birth date closer to 1825-1826, however his memorial states both his birth date and that he was 94 years, 9 months and 15 days of age at his death.
      If his age was correct he would have been born 30 Apr 1819, however we think it's a lot more likely Matthew was born about 1825 and just didn't know what his actual date of birth was.
