Notes for Thomas BOLTON
On offering by an LDS Church member on the online IGI. No way of knowing whether this was him
THOMAS BOLTON Christening: 28 FEB 1641 Highworth, Wiltshire, England Father: WILLIAM BOLTON Family Mother: MARGERIE
A search was conducted in the Berkshire Record Office to determine the information hereonin. Thomas married 1658. Banns were read 13, 20, 27 October 1658 at East Ilsley.
Thomas and Dorothy lived and worked and baptised their children in the two villages of East Ilsley and Peasemore. These were less than 4 miles apart. Maybe they were on a farm between the two, say along Hailey Lane or Bull Pit Road. An aerial view shows evidence of the foundations of old buildings in the fields, no longer there, including some large enough to have been farms or even a church.
It is hard to say what might have happened to the various Bolton branches that sprang from this original couple. Anyone with information, please get in touch.
