JOSEPH, BOATSWAIN - Montserrat, Farms, Harris

Postby Lurraine » Sat May 17, 2014 11:25 am

Hi, I am searching for anyone related to or familiar with Lazarus Gilbert Joseph (born 1903) and an Agnes? Boatswain whom he married. I believe both were born in Farms, or Harris's in Montserrat.

Hi Lurraine,

Do you know anymore about Agnes' family? i.e. parents, siblings, etc. I have significant Boatswain ancestry on Montserrat but I do not have an Agnes recorded.

However, I do know that almost all of those that I have researched had at least one and sometimes two nicknames under which they were know.

Hi Diana. Thanks so much for replying.

My dad's memory is pretty hazy as he said that 'back in those days children weren't allowed to ask their parents about such things!', so he knows very little about his parents background. Of course lots of people went by nicknames also. His birth mum (Agnes) died when he was a child but he said people used to say to him growing up about 'Miss Aggy' bin reference to his mum.

He remembers having an auntie Seine and auntie Margaret. His dad-Lazarus Joseph went on to marry a Priscilla White whom my dad called 'mum' and who was lovely to him.

I have been on Ancestry.com but hit a wall to be honest. My dad is Archippus ('Archie') Philemon Joseph born 1932 in Farms.

Thanks so much for trying to help.

Hello.

Does anyone have any information about a perhaps Margaret Boatswain? It could be Mary Boatswain?

My dad Archippus Philemon Joseph was born on 21st January 1932 in Farms and I have found his birth certificate born to Lazarus Joseph and Agnes Boatswain. My dad always said his mother was known as 'Miss Aggie' and I thought her name was Agnes but having found the birth certificate the 'signature of Father or Mother or Other Informant' it might be Mary or Margaret? It looks like 'Mangt'. It is not clear.

Kind Regards, and hopefully hear from yourself soon,

Does anyone have a Doris Joseph in their family tree? She was born in 1891, not sure of the country but she went to Dominican Republic around that time as did several thousand English speaking Caribbeans.
