Moxsom Family Genealogy :

A Memory of Truro.

The records show that. Charlotte Sleeman 1848 marrried William Moxsom 1833? and at some time lived at Boscawen Row. They had 9 Children?

Ellen Moxsom 1881? Arthur:1887 William Sleeman moxsom. 1868:. Horwich. Lancashire?

Records show that G G Grandmother and William lived at 20 Boscawen Row, or 2 Boscawen Row. Their children were born in Devon and Truro. Had ( 9 Children)
Near the 1900's they left Cornwall and moved to Horwich.
I am putting the family together and following their destinations and their final resting places.
William was in the RMarines and served his country from the Base. He fought in the Crimea nad canton Wars. Was awarded five medals.
The family had moved to Bolton to find jobs. Unfortunatley Arthur was drowned in a disussed Quarry somewhere in Horwich. Arthur was five years old.
Putting all this together with constant searching is giving the family a knowledge of their life. With the Post card book I was given has filled in many un-answered questions. Charlotte was born in East dameral and married Willam East Stonehouse Devonshire. They died in Horwich and interned Horwich Parrish Church.

With thanks to Pamela M Smith for this memory of Truro
