2 Rossiter families in Wigan in 1851 - I gues either could have had a Boaz who died... No evidence either had lived previously in Dudley


HO107 2199 453
Ship Yard Midgate Wigan
Joseph 31 Iron Moulder bn Paulton Somerset
Sarah 33 dress maker bn Woodside Staffs
Ellen 10 bn Paulton Sset


Hi lizdb/jamajo(Sue)

This could be Joseph Rossiter & Sarah Lowe who married in West Bromwich in 1839.

Joseph is from Somerset and could be the missing link.

Do we know where Solomon the father is from please?

Best wishes

Hi lizdb/jamajo(Sue)

Did a bit more digging and found Joseph Elias Rossiter born circa 1819 in Paulton.

He has a brother Boaz born circa 1829 so it looks like Joseph could be the father of Boaz, who is named after his brother.

Looks like Boaz was born in Dudley but died in Wigan.

Thanks again for all your help. Looks like we can wrap this one up.

Best wishes

A bit dangerous to base all that on assumption with no certs!

We dont even know if the Boaz death in Wigan was a child - could have been an old man!
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Hi lizdb,

You are absolutely right but Boaz is a very unusual name and I have accounted for every Boaz on the IGI, Familysearch, Ancestry, Rootsweb Worldconnect, FreeBMD etc.

With Joseph being  from Somerset with a brother named Boaz, marrying in West Bromwich, living in  Wigan with a living daughter recorded on the 1851 census but no sign of Boaz, it's a reasonable bet that this is the correct family.

If Boaz James was a man I would expect more evidence of his existence and there does not appear to be any.

Best wishes

I believe that Solomon Roseter (Rossiter) went with his son to the US of A, as can be seen here https://history.churchofjesuschrist.org/overlandtravel/companies/92/moses-clawson-company. I noticed somewhere that Solomon came from Somerset, possibly Mells or Wells. Hope this helps. Robert Worrall

Hi Velocibob,
Thanks for that. I'm still piecing this line together. Sadly I had a stroke about 11 months ago and it has affected my memory. I'm just trying to see where this family fits into the scheme of things with the Rossiter family. Thanks again for your help. Stay safe, rcuser
