Boult family London - Hugenot connections
Posted by: barbara graham (ID *****6119) Date: January 10, 2009 at 09:20:08

Hi,

My 6x great grandfather is Thomas Boult who died in 1765 in London. In documents from the Hugenot society it appears that his ancestors left Spain or Portugal around 1640 and went to France. They settled in the district of Bigorre (Cevennes) and it was probably about 1700 during the
troubles of the Camisards that they fled to England.
His descendants that I have found so far are:

Thomas daughter Jane married John Yeates 29/12/1764

Their daughter Esther married James Gravell 18/7/1797
They had the following children:
Esther 1798, James 1801, Jemmima 1803, Caroline 1805, Emma 1807, Mary Ann 1810,Georgiana 1812, Jemmima 1815.

James 1801 was my 3xgreat grandfather but I know very little about his siblings.

I would be very interested to hear from anyone who knows anything about the Hugenot connection with the Boult/Bolt family.

Regards
Barbara
