Bolton and Bowman from Kilmood, Ballygowan/ Newtownards.
« on: Saturday 02 August 14 15:17 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for information on the Bolton's and Bowman's (sometimes listed as Booman) from Kilmood.

I have so far discovered that James Bolton born probably in the 1830's in the Kilmood area married Mary Ann Bowman(born 1849, Kilmood, Down) in 1872.  I know they had children one of whom William married a Mary Ann Rainey (born about 1875). I'd really love to know anything about the parents and siblings of James Bolton or either of the Mary Ann's. If anyone knows anything or has any suggestions I'd really appreciate any information they can supply.

Thanks for your reply :) If anyone does know more about these families or Mary Rainey I'd love to know more as I've really drawn a blank.

There is a birth on GRONI website of a Mary Rainey on 26 May 1873. Mothers maiden name Smyth.
registered in Newtownards. Could this be the right one?

Hi,
    Mary Rainey was born on 26 May 1873. The father was James Rainey and the mother was Margaret Smyth. I think that they married on 2 Apr 1862 in St. Marys Church of Ireland, Newtownards. However the husband's name has been transcribed as RAMEY.

Mary Anne Rainey and William James Bolton married in Newtownards in 1873 were my grandmother and grandfather and I lived in their house in Belfast during the Second World War.  They went on to have nine children, eight of whom survived. They had twentyone grandchildren.  Grandfather died about 1955 and grandmother about 1965.

Jane.k was seeking information in 2014 but I just came across the rootschat yesterday.  I could give more information if I knew who I was talking to or what country they were in. Grandmother had a sister who went to Australia and married someone called Viney.
