BOISSON in London in 1851 and 1861
« on: Friday 10 August 07 08:47 BST (UK) »
Hi

I'm trying to find the parents and siblings of Frederick James BOISSON who was born in London in 1850.  I'm hoping that the 1851 and 1861 Censuses might have their details.

I would be very pleased to solve this mystery.  The surname is clearly French in origin, possibly Huguenot.

Regards,

Robin

Jane, 50, Laundress, no
Elizabeth, 20
Maria, 20
