Death certificate for Richard hasn't helped very much; but pleased I have it.  Died 6th Aug. 1881 at 15 Milton Street, 75 yrs; Tutor; Syncope Heart Disease many years and Bronchitis for 3 weeks. Charles Kerr present at death. Looked for a possible connection, and funny enough found that Charles married a Caroline Bell in 1850.

Seems he must have been very well schooled while in the Cape.  Very sad the other siblings died young and so without issue.  Tks for everything.

Tis with great thrill that I have at last found Richard in the 1841 census.  The image is very faint, but I feel certain it is him and that his occupation is "Tutor", aged 30 yrs, not born in County.    Initially, thought it said "Tailor" but having enlarged the frame feel confident that "tutor" is what is says.

Living with an Ann Johnson aged 35 yrs (possible sister - once again; certainly the right age and not born in county);  and two servants aged 15 yrs and 12 yrs. 

Rather than scanning here is the ancestry details: HO 107/819 Lesbury, Bambrough, Northumberland.  :) :) :)

Waiting on his death cert. now.  Will be of interest to know who the informant was.

A marriage between a William Bowden and Louisa Bell 1860 Hanover Square.
Two witnesses were Richard Bell (possible older brother) and Anne Bell.
Louisa's father's name is "Richard" so am keen to establish if this is the right Louisa.  She wasn't born in the county, (but anything is possible in regards to her movements around the country).
I cannot find them in the 1861 census which is strange and wanting some help with this couple to find them.
Regarding this marriage.  I note an Anne Bell was the other witness.  I have possibly found her death in Holborn aged 76yrs; she was married to a Samuel Bell from 15 Carlton Road, - Gothic House College Clapham, "Schoolmaster".  So Samuel a possible work colleague / friend of Richard Bell (the brother and other witness to the marriage).  Would be interested to know a bit more about the two men being "schoolmasters" and possibly at "Gothic House College", Clapham.  Any knowledge/input would be great.
In 1881 census, Richard Bell, the other witness and brother to Louisa had stated being a "schoolmaster".

Oh, yes, - I had forgotten about previous post. Blimey; I am losing it.  Feeling frustrated ....

Just trying to find some possible family connections; ----  Out of 8 siblings. I haven't one ancestor from any of the children!  So darn disappointing when trying to get some DNA matches.  (Four died young; one only had only1 child and he never married; the other stayed single and the other two I can't find anywhere.   :'(

Can anyone give me a follow up on this couple?   Says he was born in 1810 and father was Richard.

Will received today. Yes, Louisa was mentioned and his son William also.  Cousin Thomas Bowden taking care of business until his son William Bowden reaches the age of 21 yrs.  Quite a detailed two page hand written document.  William to inherit all his messuage tenements and hereditaments and land in the Parish of Swanbourne.  Louisa received all household furniture for her own absolute use and manuscripts/books to William.  Monies he had in shares of Life Assurance; those invested in Consols or lodged in Post Office Savings Bank together with his share in the Civil Service Supply Association Limited and all other monies and securities for monies whatsoever were to be shared by both Louisa and William (from what I understand from reading the Will).
Thomas Bowden (cousin) and son William the two executors.
I can scan the pages if anyone is keen to see original.
