Mr. John Boak, doctor of the Grammar School of Perth, 1666, probably was a relative of William Bouok, schoolmaster at Lundy, who was suspended from office "for his scandal in acting a comedie wherin he mad a mock of religious duties and ordinances" in 1668 (DPD., n, p. 225; I, p. 188).

Birth, Death and Marriage records are often the best method of making the links to the Boig Genealogy that will form part of your family tree. Although records vary from country to country, they are normally the most formal record of a person's relations. From the sources listed below it will be possible to locate a birth record and, from that record, a birth certificate may be obtainable which is likely to list the names of the parents, therefore taking you back another generation. A marriage certificate may also list the names of the respective fathers of the bride and groom which may then help you to find them earlier in life on a census record enabling you to fill out more detail in the Boig family tree.
