      Looking through the St Helena Records from 1673 to 1835.

      There are a few Boltons mentioned. Martha, Thomas, and an unnamed sister to George Sheldon. There is also a reference to a widow Bolton. There is also a reference to “Bolton’s land” which seems to mean that he was a planter, not that that says much, most of the people there were planters.

      Keep up the search

      Does anybody know anything about the Boltons of Saint Helena or Pietermaritzburg?


      After many years of dead-ends, I am pleased to say that I have finally started making headway in finding information about my great-grandparents and their forbears! I have just recently discovered that my great-great grandmother was named Maria Bolton. She was born around 1866 and the family story is that her family came from Saint Helena. But, I have not yet found any records confirming a Saint Helena connection.


      I have marriage records that show that she was married at Saint Saviour's Cathedral in Pietermaritzburg to both her first (Edward Lamond Lyne, 1861-1895) & second (Watson Thompson) husbands. I have heard that St Saviour's was attended by people from Saint Helena so that adds weight to the family story.


      I appreciate any help you can offer.


      Thank you,
