One of my brickwalls is Richard Bolderson who married Catherine Yurzley(Yearsley) on 5th December 1762 at St Nicholas, Liverpool. I have now found another marriage this time for a Thomas Yearsley to a Margaret Bolderson, also at St Nicholas on 1st April 1766. I am wondering if a brother and sister married a brother and sister.

I have all the deatils for the Yearsley family but I cannot find births for Richard or Margaret. The births would probably have been 1730-1750. You can ignore the Richard Bolderson born in Wrawby, Lincs as he died there.

Can anyone shed any light on possible births?

Hi Emeltee,

The records for Lancashire are not coming up when I try to search, but on a tree on Ancestry I saw a marriage for a Richard Bolderson to an Elizabeth Seed 08/10/1772 in Garstang, unsourced have you seen this??

I'll take a look at FMP

Thanks Amanda. I'm 99.9% sure that the Garstang marriage is nothing to do with my lot and I'm not sure where the William, father of Alice fits in either. Could be a brother of Richard I suppose.

It was on Ancestry, but it's Robert not Richard, found another baptism:

Name: William Balderston
Baptism Date: 4 Apr 1748
Parish: Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Phillimore Ecclesiastical Parish Maps:
View this parish
Father's name: William Balderston
Register Type: Bishops Transcripts
Reference Number: DR/2/51

Looks like the name can be spelt Balderston and Balderstone as well

William snr is a Balcksmith, does that sound right??

Well the blacksmith certainly fits as Richard was a blacksmith too.

It's a strange family. Lancs OPC has Richard and Catherine having a son, also Richard in 1772. He dies in 1780 yet a Richard Bolderson (and yes it can be spelt several ways) marries a widow Elizabeth Willan/Willam/Willams (the surname varies every time you find the marriage) in 1797. Elizabeth's maiden name was McGuire and they have several children including Elizabeth my gt gt gt grandmother.

I don't think that the Richard marrying Elizabeth is the same Richard who married Catherine but I could be wrong I suppose. I need to find a death for Catherine, born 1742 as well as a birth for Richard around the same time and also one in the 1770's. Not asking much, am I!

Thanks for looking for me. I wish I could afford to subscribe to all the sites, then I might find more answers.

Many thanks Ellie. Unfortunately the Yearsley family came from Woodchurch, Cheshire. I have them going back generations. The Boldersons are my bugbear, no matter how the name is spelt. They just seem to have appeared in Liverpool in the 1750's and I have no idea where from. They all seem to be blacksmiths but that doesn't help to pin anything down, either.

Thanks for looking anyway,
