Just jumping in on your interesting thread and I found a Herbert Bustin in 1901 with his father Henry and Mother Eliza, sisters Elsie and Alice. They are in Wytham, (plus an Edwin .....? who is a nephew)

Hi Gedcom

Thanks. Great to speak to another Lincolnshire Poacher after all these years. I used to live at Strubby near the coast
At the latter end of the 70s.

I am trying to work out who my Granddad was. I am only using a mobile phone so don't have full internet access to search
Sites. Dad was the youngest of 7 so I have no living relies to ask anyway it looks like I am barking up the wrong tree unless
Granddad had already flown the nest in 1881.I do know from David Hastings web site that Henry Bustin married Elizabeth Sarah
Hastings in 1869 and they had 7 children from what julie has sent me there were 6 on the Census for 1891 but no mention of Elizabeth
Henry wife so maybe Cyril my granddad had left home.

Hi Gwenyth

Not far from Louth then my old stamping ground, I returned to Lincolnshire 5 years ago after 30 odd years living away, it is nice to be 'home'.

I hope you get the family sorted, looking at Julie's postings there is a lot of information to follow up.

Hi Gedcom.

What a small world, I used to work at Glynn Gloves in Louth.
Yes Julie has certainly given me a lot of information but still can't
Find Granddad Cyril William Bustin I thought he was brother to Herbert
Thomas bustin (1883-1918) who was uncle to my dad Herbert Thomas
Bustin (1913-1993) but it seams I'm wrong.

How are you doing with the snow, when I was in Strubby the snow
Drifted over the phone box and they had to use diggers to clear
The roads. It was about 4 ft deep.

Great to talk to you
Gwenyth

Dear friends

Could I beg your help once more. I know that my father HERBERT THOMAS BUSTIN
BORN 1913 moved to wytham in about 1914-1918. With this knowledge and also that
CYRIL WILLIAM ? BUSTIN could be the name of his father would some kind person please
Look at the census for 1921 to see if my dad appears on there, dad was the youngest
Of several older siblings. Granddad married again and had a further son pearce.

Thank you
Gwenyth

Hi Julie

Sorry I was having a senior idiot moment. Any ideas what I can do to trace him
If I can trace who Granddad was then I can trace him back. Is there a way of
Ordering birth cert by post?

Thanks
Gwenyth

Hi steve.

Thank you so much for that. Will order certificate tomorrow then I should get the answer.
I wonder if there are any Bustins at Binsey in the 1911census and who they are as they could
Have lived there before dad was born and Binsey was a small hamlet.

Thanks
Gwenyth

Hi friends

Can anyone tell me how to find out where my paternal grandmother is buried assuming
That my father was wrong about Wytham maybe she was buried at Binsey but when I searched
For parish burial records it says that they are in the city record office. When I looked at
Their web site it says that the diasis will not release them.

Grandma was ANNE BUSTIN nee NEALE 1879-1914

Help please is there anywhere else I can look

Hi Gwyneth,
I was just looking through the Oxfordshire Parish marriage index for years 1538-1837 and came across this:-

Thomas Bustin occ.Lodger, married at Binsey to, Mary Cox occ.Lodger on the 3rd April 1788

It may be nothing, but it is the only entry for Bustin in Binsey, Oxfordshire for marriages in 300yrs.
Put it in your files, you never know.

Also there are only 26 entries for Bustin in total.

Steve.:)

Thanks Steve.

I will do that, With that few marriages he is bound to fit in somewhere. Thank
You so much. Can't wait to get on line properly to do my own searches but I am
Still working on that.

I am sure Steve that if I ever I met you. You would have a halo round your
head you are so helpful

Thank you

Halo might be a bit ****-eyed. I was looking for one of my rellies and noticed Binsey, and looked out of curiosity for your Bustin. The other 26 might be useful, so bear that in mind. Ther is only a few miles between them all.

Hi Gwyneth and all

Snow on the ground here now, but roads still open.

I hope your certificate arrives soon and your tree starts to come together. I have had a browse around and I cannot tie in a Cyril Bustin with Herbert either.

Hi friends

GREAT NEWS! The wall has come down. Tried tracing grandma to find granddad
Found him and her on 1901 census in the parish of St Thomas his name was FREDERICK
BUSTIN he was born 1877 so that means he was uncle HERBERT THONAS BUSTINS older
Brother so he is son of HENRY BUSTIN BORN WOLVERCOT.

SO NOW TO TRACE HIS PARENTS AND FAMILT.

THANKS
GWENYTH

Well done Gwynyth.
Now I don't want to get your hopes up, but there is a tree containing Bustin on Ancestry, and Oxford/shire plays a good part in it.

Hello all.

Yes Julie that is my dads first wife and my long lost half brothers
Now I would love to know is are they still alive. I have tried looking
But can't access the pdf files on my mobile. I do know they were
Living in Norfolk or Suffolk.

Now can I ask you ALL FOR SOME ADVICE OPINION. If you were
My half brothers would you be annoyed if your half sister who's birth
Had caused your parents divorce contacted you.

Thank you for the link re my great uncles pension to his widow.

Can't wait to get on line to look at things properly. (thank you steve for your
Help)

Now to another problem. How accurate were the census for 1851 and 1861
As HENRY BUSTIN born 1845 at Woodstock Oxford does not appear until 1871
When he was married to Elizabeth BUSTIN NEE HASTINGS . What do you think
Is the reason for this. They had 1 son in 1871 HENRY W BUSTIN AGE ONE YEAR
By the way.

Thank you all.

Gwenyth
