    John Bosher


    Does anyone want to look for John Bosher (also spelt Boshier sometimes) on the 1841/51 census please and for a birth?

    B. abt 1765 East Hendred/Wantage, Berkshire area according to the hint on Ancestry!?

    Married Mary Fuller 1787 in East Hendred, Berkshire.

    I think he died 1853, (Wantage, Berkshire registration).


    The John Bosher who died in 1853, Wantage was 75, so born c1778.

    There is a burial of a John Bosher at East Hendred on 12 Mar 1792 (died 9 Mar), but no age given. When/where is your last confirmed evidence of him being alive?

        Assuming they stayed in East Hendred there is also a burial on 16 Dec 1835 of John Boshier aged 88 and 1 Nov 1819 Mary Boshier aged 54.

        If this is 'your' John then he would have been quite a bit older than Mary and she could possibly be a second wife.

        They married by Licence, have you obtained a copy to see what it says?

        It's quite a common name in that area, albeit with various spellings, so I think you need to be more certain about his age before you can go looking for a baptism.

        EDIT: The marriage record (transcript) says it was by consent of HIS mother, which would have made him under 21. I really think you need to see the original images rather than transcripts.

          Putting 1851 FMP back in. May help to eliminate 1853 death
