"Bollin Par/Park" on The Cheshire Parish Register Database
« on: Thursday 28 September 17 10:51 BST (UK) »
Hello There,

Does anyone please know where the above place was/ is.
I have been looking at baptisms of my Henshaw/ll ancestors.
One of my Ancestors, Henry, was born in 1642, baptised at Wilmslow.
From what I can see, he married Dorothy Upton, in 1667.

He had a few children, all of which seem to have been baptised in Wilmslow.
Between 1670-1683, baptised in Wilmslow were:
John, William (baptised Henshall), Mary (baptised Henshall), Thomas, Henry, and Ann.


On the "residence" for some of these baptisms, it says "Bollin Park" in the data grid. Then when you click on the actual baptism it says sometimes: "Bollin Par."

For Henry's occupation, on some of the burials for his children, and the baptisms, it states that Henry was: "Keeper, of Bollin Par/Park." I have a feeling that this may have been "Keeper to the poor." This is the occupation that his son John went on to do.

But I'm not sure where this "Bollin Par/ Park." is referring to: Would it be Bollin Fee, near Wilmslow?
Or would it be Bollington/don near Prestbury?

If anyone has any ideas I would be very grateful.

Thank you very much.

 :) ;)

My gut feeling is that Bollin Park would be associated with Bollin Fee and therefore Wilmslow.

If it was Bollington near Prestbury, then surely baptisms etc would be conducted at Prestbury, especially as it is located to the east of Prestbury.  :-\

The book The History of Cheshire mentions Bollin Park in the Parish of Wilmslow

"Within this parish is a fair house and a park called Bollin Park, of Sir George Booth, knight and Baronet"

Oh, that is interesting.
So he may have been a: "Game Keeper" of that park, or something like that, rather than "Keeper of the poor."

Thank you.  :)

Or the Head Gardener in charge of looking after the Park. Looking at images of the original Parish registers it definitely says Keeper of Bollin Park on at least three of them.

Thanks again,

I looked for a marriage of Henry. I found him getting married to Dorothy Upton in 1667. I think this Dorothy was buried in November 1667.

Then on "Find My Past" I found Henry getting married to a Margaret Tabor/Tabur, in Cheshire in 1668. It is a marriage licence. The transcription states that he was a Woodsman of the parish of "Bolton." But having a closer look, the original image says: "Bollin."
Margaret's parish was "Hulsey" (or something like that - wherever that is?):
https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=gbprs/chs/4018596/01357&parentid=gbprs/m/737291549/1

This Henry died in 1686. There is a Will/ Probate for him in 1687. His residence has been put down as Bollin Fee, and Margaret Henshaw is mentioned as the Widow of her late Husband Henry, in the original image:
