Hi there. My family are all Australian, but I am now living in the Scottish Borders. Our decedents went to Australia from Rossett, Caergwrle and the Allyn, just across the Welsh border from Doddleston, in the early 1800's. There were two brothers, Charles and William, and basically all the Boydells in Australia now will be decedents of them. William married the daughter of Bishop William Broughton, who was the first and only Bishop of Australia, and is buried at Canterbury Cathedral. I know that the family tree back in the UK includes John Boydell who was an 18th century engraver, publisher and Lord Mayor of London, and James Boydell who was a 19th century inventor of a steam traction, engine and after whom a glacier in the antartic is named, and also a minister from slightly earlier. A lot of research on the family was done in the 1980's by Canon Eaton(?) Lloyd who was a Padre in WWII and then minister at Aynwick Castle in Northumberland, because his wife, Margaret, was a Boydell - I think my father received a copy of the family tree (as below) from him. Great site - keep up the good work.

Descendent of Elizabeth Boydell, b 1868 Lostock. This sign in times out too soon so please contact me at plattcom@msn.com
Great site. I have been researching my roots. Elizabeth Boydell is my great grandmother. She is daughter of James Boydell and Alice Aspinall. She was born on their farm in Lostock, Bolton, Lancs in 1868. She married John Platt in Leigh in 1892. They were silk weavers. In 1895, they emigrated to Paterson, New Jersey, USA, another silk mill town. I would like to fill in more about her early life. Let me know if I can help anyone. Thanx.

Hi my father ken is a Boydell and lives in Leigh Lancashire,this is so interesting to see where the Boydell came from.will keep in touch.
My grandfather Frederick Boydell lived in Leigh lancashire. He was a musician and married a singer Elizabeth Rathbone in 1900. The had four daughters, tw o of whom survived, my mother Winifred Fairclough and he r elder sister Lizzie Boydell. Lizzie had married. A second cousin, Jack Boydell whose father appeared to have died in 1914. They had no children. Jack died about 1993 at the age of 93 or thereabouts, my aunt having per deceased him a few years before. They lived in Thonton Cleveleys near Blackpool, he was an electrician and she was a teacher and actress. I have no brothers or sisters but gave a daughter Astrid and grandson Oscar aged 10. Very interesting to read your page, I have a photograph of the knight in Grappenhall church. Can't quite read the Pedigree on line but would be interested in obtaining a copy if you know where or how I could do so. Thanks, Ann
was Gillian Charnley previously Gillian Boydell sister Yvonne Boydell and mother and father Joan and Eric Boydell grandma and grandad Alice and Herbert Boydell (excellent site a lot of hard work gone into it fasinating x )
Thanks for posting your ancestry, My family are from Leigh/Lowton area
Very interesting. My mother's maiden name was Boydell and I have been working on the family tree which is extensive. The main part of my ancestors seem to have settled in the Leigh / Lowton area of Lancashire but can be traced through Dodleston in Cheshire and to 1066 Battle of Hastings.
Very Nice
Really impressive, will keep in touch
