Thomas Henry Boik
« on: Sunday 08 July 18 11:24 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am trying to find out information on Thomas Henry Boik.

The only definite information that I have on him is that he had a son with Mary Lousia Betts (also know as Lucking) in 1887 in NSW, his name also Thomas Henry Boik

From my research I believe I have found him at Yarra Bend Asylum where he died in 1898 aged 44 which would make him born in about 1854 but I am not 100% sure if this is the correct person. I have found a death record on BDM Vic which states that a Thomas Henry Boik died that year and it was resisted in Chil.

Furthermore, It says on the Asylum records that he was born in England however I am unable to find evidence of this.   

I am not really sure where else to look to try and confirm this information. If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

TIA
Kez

There is a Thomas Henry Boik born in England Jun 1852 Poplar - mothers maiden name Collins.

Will see if can find what happened to him just in case he is your chap.

Baptism 11 July 1852 to parents Henry and Rachel.

In 1861/1871 he is safely at home with his parents.  In 1871 age 18 he is an engineer.

Now to find him after that - he isn't at home in 1881 with parents and siblings.

Ohhh thanks I didnít even think of going back further. This could be him as in the registration for the asylum it said his occupation was an engineer.

Mary Louisa Lucking daughter of George Betts marries in 1894 as a widow with former husband deceased in 1891 - presume this is Mr Lucking whoever he was.  She is born London. 

Sooooo I guess she never married Thomas Henry Boik. 

Her mother is Elizabeth Stevens so this birth

Mar 1858 Greenwich
Betts Mary Louisa

Yeah she did. 1st Feb 1858 Woolwich England
She first got married to Frederick John Lucking in 1875 at St Marks Victoria Docks
Had 4 children
Then she had a relationship with James Williamson and they had a child in 1884.
Then she may have come to Australia under the name Williamson but not 100% sure on this
Then Boik came along.

I hope that makes sense haha

So you would assume that the husband she is referring too is Lucking?
