On 25 December 1807 at the parish of St Peter in the Catalan city of Reus, ‘Benito’ Vandenboske, a gardener, stated to be from Liedekerke in the Diocese of Mechelen in Flanders, married Francisca Girardi y Ripoll, native of Reus. The groom’s parents were named as Judocus Vandenboske and Francisca Gilis.

I am unsure what the original form in Flemish would be for this surname: van den Bossche, Van den Bosch, van de Boske?
