Hi, I am looking for any info on the Boxall line of my husbands side of my tree. We don't have much info to go on. The Boxall line is from my Father-in-laws side. Any help would be appreciated. Paula

Boxall is a local name in the north of West Sussex.
Any connection known to this area?

Paula - you have to give us something definitive to start with - I have no doubt that if I look on the census there will be many Boxall's - you have not even given a location - we like to help, but we don't have crystal balls!!!

You say you don't have much to go on - well we have absolutely nothing

Tell us how far back you can go, names, dates and location

I used to be in contact with someone doing the same surname as me but unconnected. I am sure that she had Boxall's on her tree. I think she may still live in Slough but I don't have an address for her now. Will pm you with the name.J

As a long-standing member who has added a fair number of posts, you must know that if you want people to help, you have to be a bit more forthcoming.

Hi all,
The Boxalls on my tree are mostly from Hull Humberside. One of them is from Camberwell. The Boxalls from Hull are: Annie Boxall born 1913, died 1986; Charles Boxall born 1915; Charles Boxall born 1889, died 1967; Richard Boxall born abt 1882; Katherine Boxall born 1884; Thomas born abt 1891; Francis Boxall born 1856 in Camberwell, died 1924. These are the only Boxalls on my tree.
Thanks
Paula
