Benjamin Austin, was born about 1685 in North Kingston, Rhode Island. A Benjamin Austin, with family, appears in the 1774, 1777, and 1784 West Greenwich, Rhode Island censuses. His wife's name is unknown, and only a son Edward is known. Edward of North Kingstown was born about 1708 and married Elizabeth, and had five children.
This Austin line was first published in the back of the Edith Austin Moore's book Robert Austin of Rhode Island, where it appears along with other Austin lines that she felt were closely related to the Robert line. It is presented here in the hope that with further research and possibly DNA evidence, this relationship to Robert and the other Rhode Island Austin lines can be proved.
