Hi Kira

Thank you so much for your searches! You see now what I'm up against!
in the very scanty Artillery records records for Edmund Bogg - It's only half a page; it says he was in Canada for two years and Ceylon for six. He was made up to a corporal then put down to private because of coming back drunk!

Then they put him up to corporal again and he again came back drunk! No information about him being reinstated again!

As well as finding Edmund Bogg and all his family on all of the censuses except the 1841 I looked for his siblings but only found Mary Ann Bogg who married Jonathan Cunliffe on 18/10/1835. Ancestry sent my cousin Sharon Williams the info that Edmund was a witness at their wedding in Plumstead and we're pretty sure she is one of his siblings. We weren't sure for some time because she was born in Whalley, Essex but it was at one time a garrison town so it seems likely. Edmund being a witness confirms this! Sharon and I have been swopping info for years!

I had a military researcher search for John Boggs 18th century military records at Kew but he hasn't been able to find any records of the children's births. He found where John was born in 1757 in Magherafelt, Londonderry which date tied up with what my cousin said. He also found he was based in Minorca for a time which tied up with two of his sons William and George being born there. Although I gave him John Boggs date of death he hasn't been able to find that either.

I've had someone search the church records in Quebec City, Canada for children of John and Deborah but none recorded there. Apart from Quebec and Minorca we don't know where else John Boggs was sent except Plumstead!

I gave all my Bogg/Boggs info to the BOGG one name studies group in the U.K.
The man in charge told me that none of my Bogg/Boggs connect up with any other Bogg/Boggs in the U.K. except where descendents of Edmund Boggs born 1806 Sheerness connect with each other! (I presume that descendents Mary Ann Boggs who married Jonathan Cunliffe haven't gone on there!)

I think the answer now is to have someone search the church records in Plumstead for William Boggs b.1800 Minorca, George Godfrey Boggs b.1802 Minorca, Thomas Boggs b.1809 Sheerness, Caroline Boggs b.1814 I don't know where but died 1832 of cholera in Plumstead aged 118 along with her mother Deborah Boggs nee King aged 60. So those four plus my great great grandad
Edmund Bogg and his sister we do know about Mary Ann Bogg makes six children we've found so far! There are another five names out there somewhere. I think the church records in Plumstead is the only way left to go!

Best wishes

Frances
