Thanks - my grandmother's line has always been a bit hard to follow as there was never much of it, compared to my father's line which has ancestors galore! Will check the GenesReunited site.

My grandmother Florence Maud Bossward born June 8th 1881 in Tasmania, she was the daughter of George Thomas Bossward and Harriet Wellman and emigrated to New Zealand sometime before she married Edward Beach in Palmerston, South Island, New Zealand in 1909. I have never known why she came seemingly on her own, but I now wonder if she was disinherited by her family.
I was googling  "Bossward Tasmania" and I have just seen on a website about a war cemetery in Kanchanaburi with a Bossward death, warrant officer, died 26th December 1943, aged 24, he was the son of a Samuel Royden Bossward and Florence Maud Bossward. that was the name of my grandmother and she was not the mother of this unfortunate soldier.
I am suddenly curious as to why there were two Florence Maud Bossward's from Tasmania. I do not know the age of this other Florence, but she was the mother of a 24 year old in 1943.
I would be interested to hear from anyone descended from George Bossward and Harriet Wellman.
Any ideas anyone.

Re descendants of above - see archives.tas.gov.au/Pioneers and find George T.Bossward or Harriet Wellman. Their children reference your (unnamed) G/mother 1881 and my G/mother Elizabeth Jane 1861.

Hey Chatters  :P

Just to add to the mix. Samuel Royden Bossward, married Florence Maud Poole, 6 Dec 1916, Latrobe. Reg No: 806, Reg Year: 1916. They had the following children:

"Not Stated" female, 18 Nov 1917, West Devonport. Reg No: 1684. Reg Year: 1917.

"Not Stated" female, 18 Nov 1917, West Devonport. Reg No: 1685. Reg Year: 1917. (must be twins.)

Maxwell Royden Poole Bossward, 15 Mar 1919, West Devonport. Reg No: 549. Reg year: 1919.

If you need the other Bossward's from 1900 - 1930 I have them on Tas Fed Index.

Thanks to everyone for their replies, the Bosswards are a lot more certain, although Harriet Wellman is as elusive as ever. I atempted to join GenesReunited but I do not have a credit card and the payment was prohibitive to send a money order to Australia or England, so did not bother,
Thanks to all

Hi,

I just happen to come across your query re-BOSSWARD, I am doing family tree for this family and to help you with one confusing name.....Florence Maud BOSSWARD...the other lady who has the same name is in fact Florence Maud POOLE, she was born Jan, 29 1888, in Waratah, Tasmania.

She married Samuel Royden BOSSWARD and these are the parents of Maxwell Royden Poole BOSSWARD, this should clear up your confusion.

Kind Regards

Cienna
