Below is a present day map showing an area of the suburb known as Freemantle in
Southampton.The area covered is approximately 0.45 square miles (0.75 X 0.60
miles).In this area during the 1850's - 1900's lived several of my BOYES ancestors. Some
of these people were closely related but others may not have been aware that they were
living in close proximity to a "relative". Addresses below have been extracted
mainly from the "Kellys Post Office Directories" for Southampton covering the
years 1867 to 1932. The main streets of interest to me are: Albany Rd, Andover Rd, Elgin
Rd, Grove Rd, Harold Rd, Kingston(e) Rd, Millbrook Rd, Nelson Rd, Park Rd, Paynes Rd,
Queenstown Rd, Sir Georges Rd and Varna Rd.
More information about several people here can be see by following the hyperlinks which lead to my "Boyes connection with India" page.
