Dec. 10, 1674, James Bennet, a son of deceased, acknowledged the receipt of his portion of his father's estate, and released his father Joseph Middlebrook, who held his share.

LIEUT. JAMES BENNETT (III), son of James and Hannah (Wheeler) Bennett, born at Fairfield, about 1645; died there in October, 1736; married (first), about 1667, ..... Joy, daughter of Walter Joy.

John Jones, which included Bennett's father-in-law, Thomas Wheeler. He married Hannah Wheeler (Wheeler II) and died in 1659 (inventory taken August, 1659).

(Bennett and Allied Families, page 4)

ANNA WHEELER (II), daughter of Thomas and Ann (Halsey) Wheeler, born in England and baptized there February 20, 1617; married James Bennett (Bennett I). She was presumably identical with the child who, in Fairfield records, was always called Hannah. She married (second) Joseph Middlebrook.
(Bennett and Allied Families, page 36)

Okay we have a mystery, because in the paper work i was sent, Ann Halsey married Nicholas Bennett and were the parents of James, Hannah's husband. Just have to figure it all out!
