"I received advice that her name is actually "Frances Allbiston". John and Frances married 25 December 1840 at St Wilfrid's, Davenham, Cheshire. Reference number 122/1/190. Site details CheshireBMD. The date was provided to me by a gentleman who researches the Bostock name. I cannot guarantee the information 100% but it seems to be too much of a coincidence to be wrong. "

Robert Bostock in Tasmania

From , email address now defunct 26 Nov 2004, and welcome back on 30 Aug 2010, 15 Feb 2012
James Bostock 1837 - 1919 #19294, son of Robert Bostock and Rachael Walker, who died at Warnambool aged 82.
Ann Cox born in Tasmania, died 1865 #7684 aged 39, dau of Mary Connel and James Cox
Dear Elizabeth, Yes, I do have all the documentation about this James Bostock who was born in 1837 and whose mother died at his birth. He married Alice Aitkin of Glen Esk Tasmania and died in 1919 the year before his brother Augustus. We actually spoke to an old lady some years ago now who had known him near the end of his life. He boarded with the Mack family at Warrnambool. This is the right man as I have him detailed... I wish I could answer your questions as it would solve a few more very similar names as well.
However, there was a few with the same names including Robert who arrived in Tasmania in the very early days...
I am happy to keep contact if I find something and I hope you will let us know if something news shows up... Best wishes in your searching.... Thelma in Maroochydore...
