Charles and Laurentia's Marriage record The witnesses at the marriage of Charles and Laurentia were:

Richard Hardinge Stewart
Frances Matson Runciman (one of Sophia Runciman’s sisters)
Amelia Buschman

Note that the witnesses are from the three families which this generation is connected by marriage.

The Buschman Connections

From a census record we know that Laurentia is sister to Amelia Buschman, but the other relationships to the Buschmans shown here are yet to be confirmed. However it does seem likely that Laurentia is sister to Caroline Buschman (daughter of John Buschman, esq. of Surinam), which then suggests the other family members.

Some coincidences?

Charles Stewart Drewry and Richard Hardinge Stewart, who are almost certainly cousins (see The Stewart/Runciman Connection) both marry Buschmans:
Charles married Laurentia Buschman; Richard married Caroline Buschman.
(Both marriages are in St Pancras)

Richard's marriage to Caroline is witnessed by T J Buschman and Maria E Buschman.

Richard and Caroline named two daughters Laurentia and Amelia. It seems likely they are named for the two sisters Laurentia and Amelia Buschman. The third daughter is named Caroline.

In 1832, Richard and Caroline give a son the name Henry Tillotson.
In 1837, Charles and Laurentia name their first born son William Tillotson. (This must have been in memory of Charles' brother, William Tillotson who died in 1835.)

Theodore John Buschman married Jane Runciman in 1823.
Two of the witnesses were Maria Buschman and Amelia Buschman.
(Charles Stewart Drewry and Richard Hardinge Stewart are probably cousins via connections to the Runciman Family.)

Other Buschman Census Records

Possibly related

In the 1841 census, a Buschman family is living in Brompton Row, Kensington.
Could they be relations? or is it possibly just an interesting coincidence!
