Can I help with your census enquiry ? I am happy to look when next at the archives centre. Just let me know who you are seeking.
I would be eternally grateful if anyone could supply details about Elizabeth MAUGER, born about 1828 in Guernsey (St Andrew I believe).
She married a James BOON from Dorset, who was a gardener in the Channel Islands.
I have no idea regarding her parents or exact dates of birth etc. I do have a birth certificate for one of her children - Lucy Alice - which is a work of art in itself compared to the dull certificates over on the UK mainland!

This is an interesting family. I believe I have found them on 1861/71 census and seems to read as Boon/ Boor/Book Boone.
James Snr a gardner and Elizabeth using the name Betsey birth years 1828 & 1829.
1871census children are James born abt 1859-Dennie ? 1861-Christina 1865-Richard 1867- Louisa 1868- Lucy 1870.
thus marriage seems likely pre 1859.
In 1841 the nearest Elizabeth/Betsey Mauger in age to yours seems to be
Betsey Mauger in Catel Guernsey along with Elizabeth born abt 1801-Henriette 1833-Henry1834-Nics ?possibly Nicholas 1801- Nics 1827 and Rachel 1850.
However ther are numerous Maugers being a popular name,so this will really need to be doubly checked and confirmed.
Good Luck with your search
Thanks for the lookup :)
Yes, they are quite interesting. The 1871 census details you have supplied has helped a little to fill in a gap. I know James and Lucy Elizabeth had a daughter whose initial was C - but I did not know the name - Christina. I was not aware of Richard or Louisa though! Dennie is Dennis according to the 1881 census details which I have seen. There is also a son called Perchard - which is not a name I had come across before.
Mauger - as you say - seems a popular surname in the Channel Islands.
The Boon family are equally obscure!
Thanks again for your time and trouble to pass on this information - it is very much appreciated.
