BENWELL 1755-1835 Oxford

Notes: I am trying to find the parents of Elizabeth Benwell who married Edward Hitchings in 1775. He later became Lord Mayor of Oxford 3 times. Sir Edward Hitchings (Lord Mayor of Oxford) is my so many times (I can't remember) Grandfather. I would be interested in any of his family. My maiden name is Prickett.
