I think this one may have died the same year.

The GRO index says age 9 but as we know that could be 9 months.

Hi Nzenigma,

Have you searched variants of the name BOSHER? I wonder if John might have died in New Zealand and was buried in a local cemetery, probably under his correct name but the death registered under a different spelling (drawing a very long bow, I admit).

Another option is that he perhaps headed over the ditch to AUS.

Hi Spades, been a while  ;)
I have tried  John Bowsher,  Bousher etc. and yes 'some' searching in Australia.
I'm also troubled by the lack of a birth record in the UK.
The William Bosher referred to by Dundee is almost certainly one of the children. William being the name of Harriet's father.
Cheers, Gary

The list is: Thomas (39), wife Harriett (43), Thomas (19), *John (17), George (15), Emily (11), Harriet (eight) , Catherine (6). All born in Surrey.


You have missed out Elizabeth aged 14.

There is a John Bosher in Australia but born in Australia

John Bosher
born About 1859
at Miners Rest, Victoria
Registered 1859
Registered Victoria, Australia
Father David Bosher
Mother Elizth Bult
Registration number    7526

Coincidentally, this John does appear to be a nephew of Thomas - his father David being Thomas' brother.

FYI
The Victorian John BOSHER was the second of 14 births to David and Elizabeth (nee BULT) from 1857 to1886 in the Ballarat area.
They married in Victoria in 1856.
