Dolly:

I know the England and Wales Marriage Registration Index, 1837-2005 says Rosetta Shimen, but I think that is just a transcriber's error. (Register Quarter Oct-Nov-Dec 1856).  On James and Janet's marriage register it clearly says Rosetta SLEEMAN.

I have been working and working at trying to find out more about these two, but to no avail so far.  I can't use Ancestry because it is soo expensive and my husband wouldn't understand the expense.

I emailed you that I had info on Janet's dad's (Archibald McMillan) parent's and grandparents.

Take Care

One more link to go with those in my answer below:

Although they have completely mangled her name, I think this is probably Rosetta's christening:

"England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J71J-9YN : 11 February 2018, Rosella Shemmin, 12 Jan 1834); citing HASKETON,SUFFOLK,ENGLAND, index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 918,524.

The GRO website (https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/indexes_search.asp) has gone with a few different spellings of Rosetta's maiden name when their children's births were registered:

BENDALL, JAMES       SHIMMING
GRO Reference: 1857  M Quarter in WOODBRIDGE  Volume 04A  Page 612 

BENDALL, ELIZA       SHEMMING
GRO Reference: 1859  M Quarter in WOODBRIDGE  Volume 04A  Page 677 

BENDALL, ELIZABETH      SHIMMEN
GRO Reference: 1864  M Quarter in WOODBRIDGE  Volume 04A  Page 668 

BENDALL, WILLIAM       SHIMMEN
GRO Reference: 1874  M Quarter in WOODBRIDGE  Volume 04A  Page 673

However both the censuses before she married have gone with Shimmen - see:

"England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M73W-GNV : 13 December 2017), David Shimmen, Melton, Suffolk, England; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

and

"England and Wales Census, 1851," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGRP-DGB : 10 November 2017), David Shimmen, , Suffolk, England; citing , Suffolk, England, p. 16, from "1851 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives of the UK, Kew, Surrey.

Rosetta's widowed mother Hannah is also living with Robert and Rosetta in 1881, see:

"England and Wales Census, 1881," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:Q27D-RBV2 : 12 December 2017), Robert Bendall, Bredfield, Suffolk, England; from "1881 England, Scotland and Wales Census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing p. 18, Piece/Folio 1880/94, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey; FHL microfilm 101,774,704.
