William Bugler was baptised at Beaminster on 24 April 1853. His parents were Charles Bugler (1818-1902) and Elizabeth Bugler nee Barratt (1821-1904).
William was, from the ripe old age of 8, a Carter, later describing himself as a Farm foreman and by 1912 a Bailiff.
On 1873, William married Mary Louisa Grant at Winfrith Newburgh. Mary Louisa was born Louisa Grant and I do not know why she decided to change her name, possibly because her mother was also Louisa? She was baptised Louisa and appears as such in the 1861 census. From 1871 to 1911 she appears as Mary Louisa or Mary L.
By 1874 the family had moved to Langton Matravers where their first two children were born. They moved by 1877 to Hill Bottom where their next four children were born.
Between 1903 & 1907 the family moved to Lynch Farm Cottages, Kingston, where the family were living for the 1911 census.
