In this article, we will learn about Freddie Mercury’s parents and his sister.
Freddie Mercury‘s Parents love life.
Freddie was the son of Jer Bulsara and Bomi Bulsara. They were from the Gujurat region in Bombay, India. This makes them Parsis.
The couple met while Bomi was traveling back to India for business. After this, they moved to Tanzania after Mr. Bulsara got a job at the British Colonial Office.
Marriage was always in the works for the two, and they made things official in 1946. Their Family name, Bulsara, comes from a town with the same name.
Freddie spent most of his early life in India. This included his life in school as well. They’d later move back to Zanzibar in 1964, only for the couple and their children to flee to England (Middlesex) after the Zanzibar Revolution.
Freddie Mercury’s Mother, Jer Bulsara
Freddie’s mother, Jer Bulsara, was a great mom who was always there for her children. Sources say she was a huge supporter of her son’s band and would see them perform whenever they were close. Jer Bulsara also admitted that her son had never discussed his sexuality with them.
Freddie kept his life a secret to protect his parents from scrutiny. Jer Bulsara died on November 13th, 2016, aged 94 years old. This was three years after her husband had died. Jer’s daughter made a statement saying that she died peacefully in her sleep.
Freddie Mercury’s Father Bomi Bulsara
Bomi Bulsara, Freddie’s father, had eight brothers growing up. He was raised in Bulsar, a town in India later renamed Mumbai.
He’d later relocate to Zanzibar (Tanzania), with his brothers, after getting a job at the British government. Back then, he was employed as a high court cashier.
Moreover, he had businesses in India, prompting him to travel whenever he needed to. Bomi died in 2003, aged 95 years old.
