Bolton Genealogy & History

Bolton is a locational English name, derived from Old English "bothl" meaning house and "tun" meaning settlement. Towns named Bolton were found in the northern counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire. The variations Bodeltun and Bodeltone were found in Cumbria, Northumberland, and Westmorland. The Yorkshire Dales' medieval Bolton castle housed the imprisoned Mary Queen of Scots and has been a part of Bolton family history for 700 years, as well as a family seat (feudal home) in Lancashire. American Bolton genealogy began in Virginia in 1623. The Bolton motto "vi et virtute" means "by strength and valour". At least 25 coats of arms were granted to various Bolton branches.
