Does anyone have access to the records of ships leaving from the UK and would please do a look-up for me? I had an idea that Joseph BONUS (Bowness, Bonns, etc....) may have left the UK from Liverpool between 1841 and 1851 as I don't seem to be able to find his death anywhere. His wife remarried in 1849.
Alternatively could SKS look in the water damaged 1851 Oldham census for Joseph BONUS born c1808? Someone ages ago was able to find Richard HULME there for me.

Fanny was born c1802 and died 1842, so apart from Lancashire I have no idea where she was born, but it was likely to have been in or around Oldham.> Amongst other children, Richard and Fanny had a son, John Dickinson HULME, my GG Grandfather, who married Mary Ann BONUS in 1864.> Mary Ann's parents were Joseph BONUS and Eliza HODGSON. Eliza was born in Winstanley, Wigan in 1808, but the BONUS family were living in Maygate Lane, Oldham, close to where the HULME family also lived, in 1841, and their children were born in Oldham, so there is an Oldham connection. > I have no details about Joseph BONUS at all. His 1841 census states he was 30 and a coachman, born in Lancashire. By 1849 Eliza was a widow and had remarried, but I can find no trace of Joseph's death, his birth or their marriage. It was suggested to me that because of a lack of death registration, Joseph could have just simply left his family and after the required number of years Eliza would be legally entitled to call herself a widow and remarry. I can't find him in the 1851 census though.....unless he is in the water damaged part of the Oldham 1851 census, where I was able to find Richard and his children. (I only just thought of this...!!)> > Does anyone have any of these families in their trees, or can shed any light on baptisms of Richard HULME c1799, Fanny Dickinson c1802 or Joseph BONUS c1811 (though probably nearer 1808), a marriage of Joseph BONUS and Eliza HODGSON, presumably before 1837, or a death of Joseph BONUS between 1841 and 1849? I would love to finally break the brick wall surrounding Joseph BONUS.> > Regards,> > Jan Holmes> _________________________________________________________________> Imagine a life without walls.
