from L'horticulteur français, 1 January 1855, p.10:
Les Massifs de Rosiers.
..nous avons indiqué comment on pouvait obtenir de beaux massifs de rosiers de la section des hybrides; nous entreprenons aujourd'hui d'en former avec les rosiers dits de l'Ile Bourbon. Nous avons choisi, comme pour les hybrides, les variétés dont la végétation, à peu près égale, permet de les planter dans un même compartiment de parterre, et nous continuons de marquer par le signe + celles d'une végétation un peu plus grande et par celui de — les variétés qui poussent modérément.
+ Mistriss Bosanquet, carné, très-tendre.

This rose was also collected under the name: "Legacy of Samuel Briggs #2", and is identical to another found rose that was identified as Mrs. Bosanquet. There is some doubt as to this identification, based on the photos of Mrs. Bosanquet not all appearing to be the same.

Thank you, Jill. I have added "Legacy of Samuel Briggs # 2" as a synonym.

Smiles,
