Hello All,

I am interested in Bostocks pre 1807 in Burslem and district, where my ggggrandmother Catharine was originated. I think her parents were Peter and Priscilla (could be Garrett). Her known siblings were Peter 1806, George Garrett 1810 and Caroline 1811.

A Peter Bostock, married to Priscilla, served in the Royal Horse Guards from 1793 until 1802. Peter was a potter in Newcastle Staffs according to his Army records. They had a daughter Sarah c in St Peters Nottingham in 1800.

I have details of a Priscilla Garrett born in Burslem about 1782 (IGI), but Peters birth is a mystery at the moment. A Peter Bostock was buried at Sneyd Green aged 43 in 1814, which is the right aged for army Peter. Caroline also died at Sneyd Green aged 2, which fits with my ancestors sister.
