Family notes for Samuel BODDINGTON and Grace ASHBURNER

It was remarked as a true love story, Samuel having nearly snatched her off a ship en route to India to join her father, in order to marry her (with her father's consent, she being a minor).

They had two children Grace Boddington, born sometime between Feb 1792 and June 1797, and Samuel, according to some newspaper reports, although others suggest more than two. [265]

The children of this marriage lived with the Morgan family for several years following the breakup of the marriage. Several members of the Ashburner family were live-in students of Richard Price Morgan's father, George Morgan. When the Morgans left for America the Boddington children remained in the UK with their father. [309],[310]
