Alfred William Boulton
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 21:26 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I wondered if anyone might be able to help me please? I am really stuck trying to find out who my great grandfather's parents are.

His name was Alfred William Boulton, he was born abt. 1859. On the 1881, 1891,1901 and 1911 census returns his birth place is Burghfield, Berkshire.

In 1884 he married Mary Ann Blackman in wokenham, Berkshire.

BUT I can't find him on the 1861 or 1871 census returns for any where in Berkshire.

On GRO I have found an Alfred William Boulton registered 1858 at Bradfield mother's mdn Nalder. I can't find any Boulton and Nalder Marriages which would relate to his parents so I can't find them.

I suppose it is possible that Nalder was her birth name, then she was married and widowed and then married a boulton using her married name.

If anyone can solve this mystery I would be so greatfull as this is driving me crazy!!!

Best wishes Emma

Dear Mabel,
Thank you very much for getting back to me.
I really appreciate your time looking into this. All of those surnames  and dates fit  together nicely.
Maybe Alfred and Arthur are interchangeable like Henry and Harry?
Thanks again and best wishes Emma.

I wouldn't say they're interchangeable - maybe Arthur was just used by the family for some reason

OK thank you, my family seem to have used middle names rather than their first in a lot of cases, maybe it is something like that.
