Ferdinand Brindley and what does Bordeaux B.S. mean
Posted by: Susan Jones (ID *****9347) Date: August 27, 2008 at 06:50:55

My husband's ggg grandfather was Ferdinand Brindley. As you can imagine with a name like that I have had quite any easy time tracing records. He was born in Staffordshire in 1815 to Hannah and James. He married in 1835 and then disappeared from the 1841 and 1861 census records. Then I found a census which stated that two of his children were born in France. That explains 1841 and I found a passport entry, but only for Ferdinand, for 1861.

Why did Ferdinand go back and forth to France? I think he must have taken all the family because I can't find them on any other census for 1861. On a later census for his son it says that he was born in France, Bordeaux B.S. Please can anyone tell me what B.S. stands for?

If anyone one has a connection with this family please don't hesitate to get in touch.


Many thanks
Sue Jones.
