Note on Husband: Henry BOUNDY - shared note

1. Most of my information about Henry Boundy comes from John Giles, who is a descendant of his son William Henry. I have also received information from Jeni Dindar who descends from his son Richard Charles.


2. It is easiest to start at the end with Henry's death as recorded in the church at St Peter Port, Guernsey on 4th September 1888, which tells us that his parents were James and Sarah Boundy. At the time he was aged 68, living in Paris St, and the cause was Phthsis. The names of his parents seem to link him conclusively to a record of the birth of Henry Boundy in 1820, son of James Boundy and Sarah Coumbe, in Altarnun, Cornwall. (Note that Altarnun is about 10 miles from Launceston).


3. The 1841 census for Cornwall (on FFHS online) shows a Henry Boundy, age 20, Servant, in South Petherin, Cornwall (this is only about 2 miles from Launceston).


4. In 1842 the marriage of Henry Boundey (sic) to Mary Westlake is recorded in Launceston, followed by the birth of their son William Henry in 1845.


5. By 1851 the family is in St. Helier, Jersey, for which the following census information was sent me by Pam Hislop.

Harry Boundy age 33, born England

Mary A Boundy, age 32, born England

William Boundy, age 6, born England

John Boundy, age 2, b. St Helier.

James Boundy, age 3 months, b. St Helier.


6. John Giles has supplied information on 3 of his children born in Alderney between 1857 and 1860, but by the time of the 1861 census the family is in St Peter Port, Guernsey. They are still there in the 1871 and 1881 censuses.
