Herbert Boase (b. 1880) married Ruby Beatrice Shotter (b. 10 May 1886), daughter of William Thomas Shotter and Hannah Jane Bussey, at the since rebuilt St Mark's Church, Portsmouth in North End on 10 Dec 1907.

Witnesses were W Phillips and W G Shotter, Ruby's brother. At that time, Ruby was resident at 102 London Road, Portsmouth, while Herbert Boase, a clerk, listed his address as 115 South Street, Gosport and his father as William Henry Boase. His birth record, 1880 S Quarter in WEST HAM Volume 04A Page 47, and baptism, on 22 Sep 1880, at Emmanuel Church, Forest Gate, confirm this and his mother as Mary Anna Stephens, although I've been unable to find his parents marriage or they or Herbert on the censuses of 1881 or 1891. 

In 1901, Herbert Boase (21) Ironmongers assistant from Forest Gate, Essex, was a boarder in the household of Charles Gorman (63) in Alverstoke.

Herbert and Ruby had at least five children:

  1. Olive Ruby Boase b. 14 Mar 1909 in ALVERSTOKE Vol 02B Page 551, bap. 1 Apr 1909 at Gosport, Holy Trinity.
  2. Anthony Richard Boase b. 10 Sep 1910 in ALVERSTOKE Vol 02B Page 502, bap. 19 Oct 1910 at Christ Church, Stoke Road, Gosport.
  3. Philip Edgar Boase b. 1916 M Quarter in BRENTFORD Vol 03A Page 267

  5. Laurence Jack Boase b. 18 Mar 1919 in SOUTHAMPTON Vol 02C P 83
On the birth registrations for Daphne and Laurence, the mother's maiden name was entered as SHORTER. I have also seen it mis-transcribed as Trotter. :)

Herbert Boase died, aged 50, in 1930 in EASTLEIGH Vol 02C Page 115.

In 1939, Ruby B Boase, widowed, was living at Perranporth, Woodfalls, Morgan's Vale, Redlynch, Wiltshire, in the household of her married daughter, Olive Ruby Green, along with younger daughter, Daphne B Boase, Bookkeeper. Laurence J Boase, Motor Mechanic now Lcc Ambulance Driver was then boarding in Kilravock Street, Queens Park, Paddington, London.
