Hi An,

That's fabulous, thank you! A bit confusing in places  ??? but fabulous nonetheless!!! I will certainly try contacting Bob Dawson to see what he can provide!

I thank all of you for all your acres of help today! It really does mean a lot to me, and will to my friend also. Thank you!

Believe me, I get confused too.
A couple of points worth remembering:
In the earlier centuries, polygamy was perfectly acceptable amongst the Romanies.
It was also the norm to marry within the family, so cousins would marry cousins etc to keep the bloodlines pure.
In the latter half of the 19th century and early part of the 20th, several members of the Journals Of The Gypsy Lore Society (JGLS) deposited in their archives family trees of families such as Boswells Herons/Hearns which they had drawn up talking to members of those families. They are a very important aid to anyone researching those families.

He died on 5.08.1831 at Tetford, Lincs, after being struck by lightening with his friend/cousin Edward 'No Name" Hearn/Heron who also died that night. They went into a barn to find straw to keep their tents dry, and the barn was hit, killing them both outright. They are buried together at Tetford and their gravestone still stands.
   An
           which Edward was this (who was he married to)

Edward Heron/Hearn. Also known as "No Name." They share a grave at Tetford In Lincs. (Ive seen it).He was another one with several wives. He was supposed to have married Seni Smith, her sister Sibbella Smith, and Sophia Hearn/Heron (The very same as was married to Tyso Boswell), but his "main" or permanent wife was Rose or Rosa Lovell.

Yes, he was your Edwards uncle. Well, reputedly. No one has a baptism for Edward No Name because he wasnt baptised until he was an adult.

A Clark Boswell and Delevy/Lepha/Aleaf had:
Mineretta/Miseretta c.16.01.1825 Tibberton Worc who reputedly married Plato Boswell s/o Abel and Lucy
Daniel Leavy c.25.12.1832 Gedney Hill, Lincs
Riley c.1830 Whittlesey Cambs

Theres also a Clark and Elizabeth who had Plato (presumably the same Plato as above who is generally listed in the JGLS and gypsy genealogies as being s/o Abel and Lucy Scamp)


Just picked up an extra one:
Clark and Leaf had:
Zachariah c.11.02.1827 Pebworth Glos
