George Bush in Kendal
« on: Tuesday 26 August 14 01:55 BST (UK) »
Trying to find parents of Mary Ann Bush b. 1854 in Kendal, m. 1 June 1873 Robert Shepherd.  I see a George Bush b. 1828 and Sarah Major b. 1833 as possibilities.  Do not have access to the census collections to follow this further.  Robert Shepherd's parents are William Shepherd and Hannah Bousfield.  Would appreciate your help. Thank you.

By 1871 they have three more children.   Margaret H 9, Isabelle 2 and George Isaac 1 month.
Mary Ann is a "Tobaco Stripper" as are Sarah, John and Elizabeth though the latter two are shown as scholar half time as well.
RG10 5285 55 12   Captain French Lane Yard House Kendal

Actually they started them to work early in those days as little George is shown as occupation Dyer's labourer - that presumably belongs to the next man down!

Much thanks to @warncoort and sillgen for the information provided.  It just astounds me to see that almost every one of my ancestors lived on Captain French lane at some point in their lives. Wondering now if the 1941 census would reveal George Bush's parents.  George would be around 13 yrs old and I believe his father is named John.

Monument Lane, Beast Banks Kendal (next to Captain French)   HO 107 1163/1  16  25
John Bush 40 Gardener
Mary Bush 40
George Bush 10 all b in county
Remember that ages above 15 were rounded down to the nearest 5

In an ideal world you should get the marriage certificate to confirm the father's name and occupation but this does look a good match.

They are still together in 1851 in Capt French Lane  HO 107 2442 108 26
John 48 Gardener
Mary 46
George 22 gardener  all born Kendal

If I had been more alert yesterday I would have noticed that they are living next door to George and family in 1861.
John age 63 born Lancashire, Brompton in Furness
Mary 56 b Little Strickland

That gives you more to go on.
