I'm looking for Harry Boyce Rumbold born in Portsea, Hampshire in 1868. Could someone look him up please in the 1871 census? His mother was named Eliza Rumbold. I would appreciate as much detail as possible.

Thank you.
Julia

There is a Harry Boyce Rombold, baptised in Britford, Wiltshire, in 1871. Mother, Eliza Rumbold. No father mentioned.

Have you his birth cert.

Harry Boys Rumbold
RegYear: 1868
Reg Quarter: Jul-Aug-Sep
Reg district: Portsea Island
Volume: 2b
Page: 455

Sorry, I can't see much else, apart from his two marriages, one to Sarah Ann Ash in 1893, the other to Sarah Ann Elliot in 1900.(He was a widow at the time of this 1900 marriage).

Which would suggest that his son Joseph E.H. Rumbold, (c1895. Britford,Wilts)in the 1901 census, is the son of Sarah Ann (nee.Ash).

further to previous post..

1871 Census Portsea Island - Milton St James Hampshire UK
John Fisher 29 b Crawley -
Eliza wife 26 b Britford Wiltshire
Harry B Fisher son 2
Charles H Fisher son 1 - died 1875 Portsea Hampshire

*** there is also a Elizabeth Rumbold age 28 b Durford Wiltshire in 1871 census at Durnford as a cook/servant and states unmarried..

Harry is still using Fisher and in 1881 he's with his Grandmother Ann Rumbold widow age 60 b at 51 Cottage - Britford Wiltshire, age 12 a ag labourer and name is Henry B Fisher

1891 he's changed back to Harry B Rumbold now age 22 and still with his grandmother Ann Rumbold at Britford Wiltshire.

Harry married 1st to Sarah Ann Ash March qtr 1893 Alderbury Wiltshire & they had son Joseph E H Rumbold.. Sarah dies July qtr 1897 Salisbury Wiltshire.

1901 Harry's re -married and 2nd wife is Sarah A nee Elliott b 1874 Birmingham - married June qtr 1900 Aston Warwickshire and son Joseph Edward H Rumbold age 6 is with them.

As to what happened to his mother - she could have remarried.. or died as there are a few to match either names of Fisher or Rumbold.
regards
Val

Great researchers, many thanks for the info. Harry Boyce Rumbold's second wife Sarah Ann Rumbold nee Elliott was my relative.

Could "Boyce" have been the name of his father?

Thank you,
Julia

It possibly could be his Grandmothers maiden surname. I think you would benefit by getting his birth cert, that may reveal more info. But it may not.

Boyce is a modern variation of DuBois, Scottish/Norman. But don't get carried away with that, or hung upon it.:biggrin:
