Brian - I am Michale Bugden of Portsmouth UK -my father Eric Bugden has done extensive reseach of the Bugden family - we can trace our line back to 1747. Marie Kielly in Australia also wanted to know this information - are you in contact with her ?? The information that my father has from thr "Nimrod" marriage index is that John Bugden and Alizabeth Lockyear were married on 30 Sept 1820 - in parish of Farley and Pitton just east of Salisbury. Our branch of the family is from Shaftesbury and bin the 1750's Donhead St Mary. Will try to find more info i.e If there were any children of this marriage and John's baptism record which may give his parents names.
