Geoffrey Boardman 1785 - 1847

Geoffrey Boardman was born about 1785 in Deane by Bolton, Lancashire to William Boardman and Betty Heys.

He marries Ellen Turner in 1810 in Bolton le Moors, Lancashire.

In the 1841 census, Geoffrey Boardman, and his wife, Ellen are recorded living at Ebenezer Street, Bolton, Lancashire. Geoffrey is a Labourer.

Also enumerated in 1841 is John Boardman, their grandson, daughter, Lucy, (a dressmaker), her husband John Yates (a cotton weaver)  and their 1-month-old daughter, Mary, who I believe dies in infancy.

They had married in 1840 and the couple had a son in 1845, called Joseph.

Lucy is John Boardman’s mother, although many other people have thought her to be his eldest sister!
