I HAVE BEEN COMPILING MY FAMILY TREE AND FIND THAT I AM DIRECTLY DECENDED FROM THE SILKTONE, BARNSLEY BOSTWICKS. MY COUSIN, ALSO A BOSTWICK, HAS TRACED US BACK TO 1650 AT SILKSTONE. WE BELIEVE THAT WE ARE ALL DESCENDED FROM ONE COUPLE WHO LIVED IN CHESHIRE, ENGLAND. IT SEEMS THAT THE NAME MAY HAVE ORIGINALLY BEEN BOSWICK OR BESWICK (NO T). THERE WAS A CHARLES BOSTWICK m MARY ? WHO DIED AGED 69 IN 1881 WHO IS ONE OF MY ANCESTERS. THEY HAD A DAUGHTER CALLED FRANCIS WHO DIED 1860 AGED 14. HOPE THIS HELPS BUT HAVEN'T GOT RECORDS OF URSULA OR EILEEN. WE HAVE ONLY GONE DOWN OUR OWN PERSONAL BRANCH, BUT THEY WOULD BE RELATIVES. WE KNOW SOME BOSTWICKS WENT TO AMERICA AND ONE DEVELOPED AN OIL WELL. GOOD LUCK
