View Full Version : BOOND family, Chorlton Manchester
14-03-2005, 8:33 AM
I have hit a brick wall with a Charles Edward BOOND, father of Mary Jane BOOND who married my great great grandfather, Alfred Wright, in 1872. The marriage certificate gives her father as Charles Edward BOOND, Manufacturer. Mary JAne was born in Chorlton, Lancashire. I have an IGI Christening record, but can not find anything else.
[Christening: 15 JAN 1848 Cathedral, Manchester, Lancashire, England
Father: CHARLES BOOND Family
Mother: ELIZA ]
Anybody else researching the BOOND family? Can anybody locate Charles and Eliza on a census for me?

On the IGI there is a Man Cath marriage 25th Jul 1869 between James HEMSLEY and Mary BOOND.I'll check it out to see who her father was.Would you post the full marriage details of her wedding to Alfred WRIGHT.

Well, I found or two things for you.I guess that they may all be related,

Mary BOOND,28,Spinster,39 Boundary Lan,Chorlton on Medlock.Father,Samuel BOOND,Fustian Cutter.Married...by Banns....Witnessed by Samuel BOOND & Emmaline BOOND.

Ho 107 2220 folio 388
2 Devonshire Place,Ardwick.
Eliza BOOND..W..M..34(?)..Fustian Cord Merchant..Manchester
Eliza was the first entry on the page,so I am reasonably confident that Charles was the last entry on the previous page...but that was totally unreadable.He was certainly alive because Eliza is described as married..also because
RG 9 2920 folio 38
6 Irwell Terrace Salford
Charles E BOOND.H..M..46..Fustian Salesman..Manchester
I don't know where Eliza was.

I am sorry I didn't catch your earlier posts, but I have had visitors staying in my computer room. Amazing how cut off you are without a computer, isn't it?!
Anyway, your research confirms Mary's siblings for me. I had them on IGI, but no other evidence apart from the full name of Jessy being Jessy Wright Boond which is intriguing.
You asked earlier for the full details of Mary's marriage to Alfred Wright:
Aug 25 1872
Parish Church, Parish of the Holy Trinity in the County of the City of Chester
Age Prof Res Father Prof
Alfred Wright Full Bachelor Stonemason Grouse(?)St George Wright Stonem
Mary Jane Boond Full Spinster Nicholas St Charles Edward Boond
C E Boond has manufacturer as his profession.
I now have to find out what a Fustian Cond Merchant is....
Thanks so much for your hard work. I really appreciate it. I see you are at Manchester Central Library. Does the library have a big family history section? I was wondering as I will be in Marple for 2 weeks in the summer. Would it be possible to get a copy of the images you transcribed?

I am glad that you were pleased with the results.You will be able to take photocopies yourself if you come to MCL, at a cost of 40p per sheet.The 1851 Census may be a problem as the quality of the film was not very good.
If I am still in the country I may even show you how to use the copier.
I forgot to answer the MCL question...yes.Take a look at the website as per sticky message.
price of copies has doubled

I came upon this the other day and I thought it may be of some interest to you.

Could it be Fustian Cord Manufacturer instead of Fustian Cond Manufacturer?
OOps! Just re-read UK's original post to discover it WAS Cord...

Thanks UK and DebbieAnn,
Sadly, I have made little progress with my particular line of the Boonds. I have what I assume is the uncle of Charles Edward Boond - a William Boond (~1778) who married Hannah Clegg 16 APR 1803. Their son, John Clegg Boond married a Caroline Holt and I have all 8 of their children thanks to the IGI.
What I don't have is anything to link the two families. It is very possible that the John Boond you found is the father of Charles Edward Boond, the date fits, but how do I find out? Where do I look?
I have the Bertram Merrell marriage index for my Cheshire folk pre 1837, can you suggest anything for Manchester?

There is a Manchester and Salford directory for the year 1800 which lists a Peter Boond, Gent., St. Peter's (residence). It can be accessed through Ancestry It also appears there was a Boond Street, listed in the same directory: a David Holt, cotton spinner, lived there. Perhaps he is related to your Caroline Holt?
Ancestry also shows: The England Commercial Directory for 1816-17 for Manchester, which lists, under Manufacturers of Fustian, a William Boond, 29 Cannon Street (residence). Yours? He is also listed under Manufacturers of, and Dealers in, Cotton Goods (same address).

Also from Ancestry: there is a History of Lancashire as of 1825, which lists 3 Boonds:
John Boond, land & building agent & surveyor, 1 Ancoates grove
John Boond, shopkeeper, 50 Long Millgate
Boond & Spencer, velveteen, shirting, &c. mfrs, Dickinson's court, Cannon street
Perhaps these are Wiliam, the uncle of Charles, John, the cousin of Charles, and John, the father of Charles?

I'll take a look at the various TDs to see if there is any other information. I am doing some work on St Thomas', Ardwick baptism at the moment so I will keep an eye out for C E B c1805.

The 1817 TD gives the following BOONDs
John, Land & Building Agent, Ancoats Grove
Thomas, Land surveyor, 22 Ridgefield: Hse 9 Ancoats Grove
William, Fustian Manufacturer, Dickenson Ct: Hse Calender St.
