Hi

You were looking at trying to connect Daniel Boys (1685 - 1726, married to Mary Ann Page) to one of the other branches of the Boys families. I have found Daniel's father (also Daniel Boys - 1652 - 1727, married to Ann Theobald), then I got stuck. I was wondering if you'd managed to get any further?

Best wishes

Hi Deirdre
No I also have come to a grinding halt with Daniel Boys/Ann Theobald of Lynsted.
Where did you get his birth as being 1652, according to his burial details he was 91 when he died which would make his birth date approx 1636.
I have found in the Canterbury "Strangers Church" Baptisms details, an entry for Daniel du Boys baptised 1593. He came from a huguenot family that escaped persecution and I presume settled in Kent. Some huguenot families are said to have settled in Faversham which is a neighbouring town to Lynsted.
I have also traced Lilian Boys Behrens family as I believed she was in someway related to my family line, she visited my Grandfather at one time.

Have a good Christmas and a happy New Year

David

Hi David

Thank you for your reply. I think I got Daniel Boys' date of birth from a match with another family tree - I have gone into it but not found any documentation that relates to his date of birth or age at death / burial. I am new at this so I may well have got this incorrect.

I have found a Kent Online Parish Clerks site that has 5 Boys family trees - The Godmersham family tree is the one my Dad originates from. There is a much bigger one from 1067 stretching to 98 pages which Lilian Boys-Behrens appears as a footnote on one of the pages saying she is a daughter - although it is unclear which of 2 brothers is her father. That line descends from Rev Richard Boys.

I have a Rr Admiral William Henry in the family tree I've put together, married to Charlotte Sophia Greenall. This couple appear in the large 1067 family tree as descendants of one of John Boys and Mary Harvey's sons (a separate branch from Rev Richard Boys), but I have a feeling I've mixed up 2 different William Henry's so I need to go back to look at this again. Otherwise I could find no shared individuals in the 2 family trees.

Best wishes for the New Year
