George Bollom
« on: Monday 22 January 18 01:14 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
I apologise if this query is being posted in the wrong area.
I am hoping to find some information about George Bollom, who was born c. 1836, in Australia, I believe. He may have died in Ballarat.
George Bollom married Julia Catterson in 1858. (Julia may have gone by the surname Berry, as I think she was previously married).
My grandmother always understood that George Bollom's family was from Spain and that the surname may have have originally been Bollomino (or something similar).
I believe that George Bollom was born in Australia, although I don't know when or where. I would love to find out the names of his parents so I can explore the possibly-Spanish connection.
Thank you.

BOLLOM is a very unusual name.  This may be Elizabeth aged 20 on the 1851 census.

Found a baptism for what could be George's sister Elizabeth dated 3 Sep 1830 with parents George, a porter and Elizabeth.  Sadly the address was the Workhouse in 1830.  On familysearch.org

Probably why the OP thinks George died at Ballarat. :)

My resource shows Julia Mary's father as CAKERSON. ::)
