Francis family - Boston Lincs
« on: Wednesday 05 December 18 15:23 GMT (UK) »
For those who have helped me on the Lincolnshire forum, thank you for all of the valuable information you have provided.

Still on the Francis family I would like some information on a Henry Francis please. DOB: Dec 1841 Born Boston Lincs.  Died: Jun 1932 Sleafird Lincs. His wife is a bit of a mystery, record wise, Ann Francis DOB@1842.  Whenever I research a Henry Francis the records show him married to a Mary Ann Francis?? They had a son William Rueben Francis DOB: 25/11/1862 Born Grimsby.  My other thread on this forum is previous 1862 so happy with all the info I am just stuck on Henry Francis 1841 and prior.
Thanks Keith

There is a link to London via another later generation of the family.  It is very intriguing..

It is interesting that Ann Rebecca Francis Nee Cottrill is called Mary Ann Rebecca Cottrill on her marriage cert? And other documents she drops the Mary.

In 1871 census, William Francis was with Joseph Cottrell, born Barking in 1847.

In 1851 Joseph was at 23 Hart Street, Barking, with sister, Ann, and mother Martha

Ann Rebecca Cotterell was baptised on 20 December 1835 in Barking, Essex, daughter of Benjamin and Martha.

David,

Thank you the plot thickens.  The connection to the London area grows stronger.

There is a Henry Francis and Mary Ann who fit the dates but it is a different family. Henry Francis married Mary Ann Butler in Boston District in 1868.
