Benjamin Canning was the son of Charles Canning and Hannah Whitlock.He was born, November 12, 1857, in Deddington, Oxfordshire, England.He received his early education and spent several years of his earlychildhood in Deddington and later the family moved to Loxley,Warwickshire, England, where his father was employed as a teamster andcaretaker of horses.

In Loxley, with Charles Canning and William Gomm employed for the samework, there developed a little jealousy between them for each wastrying to care for his horses a little better than the other. Thisjealousy did not remain with the men alone for it entered into thefamilies. This feeling in the two families prevented them fromvisiting one another more than seldom and as such had an effect onthe children by keeping them somewhat apart. However Benjamin's sisterLaura became very friendly with Hannah Gomm and throughout life theyremained vast and dear friends even though they lived in distantlands. Benjamin became friends with Hannah through this relationshipand eventually married her.

During his early youth Benjamin came in contact with missionaries ofthe Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Sa1nts and was converted,being baptized, August 24, 1877. Due to the feelings of his parentsand his employer toward the church and the converts, it was necessaryfor him to keep his membership a secret (which he did until after hearrived in Salt Lake City, Utah). After being baptized into the Churchhe desired to go to Zion, as it was then called. His girlfriend HannahGomm, also a member of the church, likewise had the desire to go toAmerica, so as their friendship grew they planned together to makesuch a trip. To prepare for this they each saved from their earningswhatever they could and placed it together in a small wooden box. Whenthe time came for them to go they had saved enough to be able to paytheir transportation in gold.

On 19 May 1878, they were married at Kirtlingon, Oxfordshire, England.The following day they were taken by carriage to the railroad stationabout four miles away, where they took the train to Birmingham, thenthe District Headquarters or the Church where a company of Saints wereassembling for the trip to America and the Rocky Mountains of Utah.From here they took the train to Liverpool where they embarked forAmerica on the steam ship "Nevada" 25 May 1878.

Just as they were to embark an incident happened that was quite uniquein those days (and currently for that matter). Just as they wereleaving, a man and woman with two small children approached them withtears in their eyes and pleaded that their children be taken asBenjamin and Hannah's children to America. Every effort to persuadethem to keep their children until the day they too could make the tripwas to no avail. Apparently nothing but a straight refusal would be ofany effect and this, Benjamin and Hannah could not do under thestrange circumstances. They granted the request and accepted theresponsibility. The little girl being cared for by the Cannings underthe name Rose Canning, while the little boy went with Thomas Judd whowas in charge of the company. With tearful eyes and evidence of joy,the parents with a hug and a kiss for their children, and with anexpression of thanks in their hour of sacrifice bid them a fondgoodbye. What a sacrifice to make; how painful yet noble and beautiful

Benjamin was very active in the Church of Jesus Christ ofLatter-Day-Sa1nts and was a section forman for the railroad. Hisdevotion to his work most likely cost him years of his life. Notseeking help for typhoid fever he had contracted, he died at age 40.
