Hi there,

My grandfather was Cecil (Shirley)Bent. He lived in Mandeville and worked for Townsend and Godfrey. He was born in 1914. He has many relatives that are alive. There are "coolie" people. He married Iris Bent(nee Badwah) in 1944. My understanding is that he had a son prior to his marriage in 1944. I do not know how many sibblings he may have had but I was always told that Bents are of indian descent. Cecil Bent died on May 6, 1999.I will ask my mother for more details. Hope this helps.
