I know that George Edwin married Mary Walwyn, but I believe I am descended from an earlier marriage which produced a son named Ebenezer, affectionately called "Beenie." Any information about this branch of the Corn Law Rhymer's family is appreciated.

Hello - could you give me an idea of where all this took place, please? Which country, at least?

The "Corn Law Rhymer" was English https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebenezer_Elliott

I don't know the connection between this Ebenezer and the one mentioned though.

 

Correct, George Edwin Elliott's first marriage would have likely been in the late 1830s to mid 1840s in England.

He was the son of the Corn Law Rhymer - Ebenezer Elliott (1781-1849). He is referenced in the Wikipedia link above, "A new edition of Elliott's works by his son Edwin appeared in 1876." Ebenezer "Beenie" Elliott was the grandson of the poet.
