Boucher\Page Swindon
« on: Monday 22 April 19 12:04 BST (UK) »
Hello all.
I've been looking through my family tree after my Nanna died last month. The family don't know a lot and I've managed to get quite a bit off the Internet but now I need help.

My Grandfather was Ernest Charles Page, born in Swindon in 1920 and he was one of 17 brothers and sister. The story is there were twins that died at birth but can't find anything to do with them. I've found 13 of them but then I'm stuck.
Ernest parents were...
Beatrice Louisa Boucher, born 1888 and Sidney Charles Page, born 1883. Married in Swindon in 1908.

All children were born in Swindon.
I did find a topic about this from years ago on here but only 10 of the children were listed.

I'm very new to this family history hunting so I might be missing something very obvious.
Thanks in advance.

Just so that you know, Rootschatís rules require that we donít publish personal details of living people on these boards.  I donít know whether any of the children are still alive?

It looks as though they had:

1907 Lilian Beatrice (registered as Boucher - born before the 1908 marriage)
1909 William Thomas
1910 Sidney George

Plus the 10 listed at reply #4 on the old thread - are these the 13 you have counted?

So we have 15 children.  Perhaps the twins were stillborn, therefore no birth/death registrations?

I wonder whether they were born between Sidney (Dec qtr 1910) and Joseph (Jun qtr 1913)?  The gap between these two is relatively large for this very fertile couple.

Added - or in the gap between Albert (Dec qtr 1915) and Ada (Sep qtr 1918).

That's amazing. None of the brothers or sister are alive. That post you listed is the one I was looking at yes.
I think you might have found those missing ones. Will look into that.
Thank you so much everyone.
