Re: Boydens of Staffordshire, Eng.
James Boyden c1796 married his cousin Ann Boyden b1794 the daughter of Zacharias Boyden. Ann died 1830, James then re-married Martha Smith Sept 2nd,1830. I too can trace my line back to 1640. My line is from James's 1st marriage from their 2nd son also called James who was tragically killed 1856.
James b 1796 d 1861. James b 1757 d 1827. John c 1735 d 1784. I have the actual dates of baptism/births, marriages, deaths & burials.
From the marriage of James/Ann Boyden there was 5 children, Thomas, James, Ann, John and Emma
