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. 
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. ,
