About John Benjamin Tolkien

The British census records of the time contain two more J.B. Tolkiens, who lived between 1753 and 1819, and between 1788 and 1859. The recurrence of the names shows that the two men were related: could the latter of them have been G.W. Tolkien’s brother, and the former – their father or paternal uncle?
