    • RJCarr (01 JAN 2011): A copy of a report to the Chief Officer of the port of London indicated that a Francois Boquel was aboard the ship Baron Osy as a listed alien. The ship had departed Antwerp, Belgium and arrived in London on 26 October,1854. Francois was shown as a native of France and his occupation was listed as Banquier; a banker. No age was assigned to Francois and there is no immediate means to certify that he was the Francois (Francis) Boquel in this CarrFamilyTree.
