Not aged 5 in 1849 per 'Victoria' - that's a Valentine Boyce and family from Somerset.

I can't find John Boyce born 1846 in 1851 census on FS.

I also can't find William & Susannah Boyce in 1841.

No birth reg 1840 +/- 1 with mmn Thwaites

The birth for John Alexander in 1846 seems to be the only one 1839 - 1851 in GRO.

Thanks Geoff.

Not anywhere but India.

OK. Three daughters born in India before John was born in 1846 in London.

William may have arrived in Vic before Susannah and the children who arrived 1856.

I don't have daughter's names yet.

I thought they would have been in 1851 census.

30 115 NOV ENG 3 B FULWOOD 1856 BOYCE, WILLIAM

That one is not old enough.

Searching 1853 - 1856 for William and Mr Boyce does not find one old enough to have been born 1809.
