Dr James Samuel Drury b1822-1865
« on: Tuesday 17 May 11 10:05 BST (UK) »
 Hi all,
Iam looking fro what happen to the wife of James after he died Sophia Louisa or Louisa Sophia (nee) Bousfield b 1825 and what happen to there 3 daugthers?
 (I am a decendant of the son "James H") the sisters were,
1) Mary Frances Drury b abt 1862,
2) Isabella Maud Drury b abt 1862 (odd)
3)Emily Henrietta Drury b abt 1864.
The way I understand it James was Doctor to the Queen, so I am hopeing that there are some records that have been kept of his chrildren. Did they all marry?
Many thanks Scott
