hello citizensmith,

thanks for that info, my grandfathers were william & thomas webb and also have buckley's and devonshires in my tree so for me very interesting. ;D
i never knew this site existed, is it new?


Hi

The Essex RO site isn't new. It's had its catalogue online for several years - but I'd never searched for the Bohemia Estate before.

I note that one of the Buckleys - Otley - is described as being the owner of a wooden bungalow on wheels . That building plan would really be worth seeing.

Must say, Devonshire isn't a name I've come across before. Does it belong to Essex?

Best wishes

hello sharon,
i have devonshires marrying into my webb line and they seem have been in eastwood for quite a few years (some use the surname of boscoe rather than devonshire, dont know if that name may mean more to you)
what did you put in to get the details for otley buckley, ? would definatley like to see that.
i did a search for caravans and tents to. some details appear which was surprising as i wasnt sure if it would register.  :D

Through tracing my family tree i have found out that my great uncle Oscar Smith and great aunt Beatrice Boswell ran away to southend to get married and were married in eastwood church, they eventually settled in bishop stortford. however many of my family lived in and around eastwood including rochford

Hi all

If anyone has already obtained an original 1911 census page for their family at Bohemia Estate, there's a useful new facility now available at no extra cost  :) that shows you the surnames of the heads of household of all the other families living there. This was added at the end of last week.

To get this free info, you need to:

Go to www.1911census.co.uk and register as usual

Click on MY ACCOUNT at the top right of the page

Click on MY RECORDS in the blue box on the left-hand side of the page

You'll be presented with a list of all the pages you've viewed or downloaded to date.

Click on the VIEW button beside any one.

The image will appear with a number of new buttons above it. Click on the one labelled LIST.

You'll then be presented with a a new image a list of the surnames of the other heads of household who were neighbours living in the same street as your people.

It's very useful for finding out if your people were living in a tent or van on their own or living with other others in an encampment and for the Bohemia/n Estate the LIST page shows there were 118 people living in 24 caravans and two tents by the surnames of:

Wayland
Wayland
Livermore
Osborne
Harriss (spelt like that)
Goody
Livermore
Smith
Smith
Buckley
Smith
Smith
Bukley (spelt like that)
Boswell
Draper
Taplin
Gray
Barr
Smith
Webb
Scarrott
Harriss
Bibby
Webb

Hope this helps!  :)

Best wishes

Sharon
