This shows where the Boyes family fit in

James Monk married Ann Boyes 17th July 1850 at St. Martin in the Fields, Liverpool and both their fathers named William were Hawkers.

Here is Ann with her family in 1841 in Lathom
William Boyes 25 Mugman
Mary Boyes 25
Ann 8
Mary 1
Elizabeth Monks 19 -not sure whether this is 9 or 19
William Monks 4 months

James is Lawrences brother???

there seems to be a few people trying to find the Monk families in 1841 & 1851

one says there seems to be a district missing for Lathom.

Lawrence's marriage was actually announced in the Preston Chronicle

and

in the Liverpool Mercury of 14 Aug 1849 he was in the Lancaster insolvent court

"Lawrence Monk hawker and earthenware dealer formerly of Lathon near Ormskirk"

lawrence and family are missing from the 1841 and 1851 census but elizabeth and son william are lodging in lathom in 1841 with a family named boyes

as the Monk family in Preston between 1882 & 1889 seem to flit between Jennett Street and (Back) Saul Street I wonder if ii is worth someone with an FMP sub doing an address search in 1891

But Denis was with wife and children in 1861 in Liverpool - as previously posted, even though the name seems to change between Bolger and Bulger.

The one you've found was given 6 months for indecent assault:

Dennis Bulger
Date of Trial: 15 Oct 1860
Trial Year: 1860
Location of Trial: Durham, England
Sentence: Imprisonment
Crime: See Image
Date of Execution or Release: See Image

Don't think he is your Dennis.

i cant find them on the 1891 census but i know they are in preston because several children are born there including elizabth monk 1882, flora, lawrence, mary ellen, john and, david.
