Title: Information on William Alfred Boswell in the Bengal region of India
Post by: JeromeBoz18 on Monday 08 February 21 11:40 GMT (UK)
I am looking for information on William Alfred Boswell, born 1849 in Birmingham, moved to India in 1870. Once there he married a Josephine Warnett in 1871 and later a Louisa Johnson in 1900. His father is listed as a William Boswell too though I haven’t had any luck finding him with British census records. Any information on Boswells from Birmingham in the mid 19th century or Boswells in the Bengal region of India.
Ultimately a photo of the man himself would be great if possible but any further info would be useful.

Welcome to Rootschat.

Can I ask what evidence there is to suggest he was born in Birmingham?

I have a snippet from a newspaper that has his obituary on it. That mentions he is ‘of Birmingham’.
