My distant relative has asked for my help on Lily Boulton but I noticed something not right about their birth year and place of birth.

Lily Boulton - I cant find her on Ancestry and supposedly to be a daughter of John Boulton of 1870 born in Yorkshire and a mother either be Ann Massey (1876?) or Lucy Quarterman. She was born around 1906 but dont know where she born.

I quoted from my relative "John Boulton 1870 married to Lucy Quarterman (1874) had a daughter Lily, do you if she married or ever came to live in Doncaster, my dad always remembers a Aunty Lily from the Boulton side, I dont know who she can be unless she is a daughter of another Boulton".

Lucy Boulton - she born around 1907 but I caught my eyes that there is a Lucy Boulton born in 1908 in Wakefield but cant find her on the census either. :( She died in Yorkshire in around 1997.

You can find my Great grandma Edith Olive Boulton born in 1908 in Doncaster and she have 2 brothers - Fred and Harry and 2 sisters - Lucy and Lily.

Thanks.

My aunt said that Lily was born to John's first wife name unknown (could be Ann) and Lily was a half sibling of Edith and Harry to John's second wife, Lucy Quarterman. Which means Lily was born before Fred and Harry was born. I'm still tracking down for Lily but unable to find her Mum before she died. x

I cant find John Boulton (born in bentley, Yorkshire) in 1891 and 1901 census - when he was 22 years old ish... My great great grandma Lucy was running away to Wales when she was young and somehow she found John.x

Whoa... Couple of kids I didn't know they had! Ellis, Sarah and Lily!

Can you tell me how many kids that John (1845ish) and Margaret had from the day they married?

I am still looking for John of 1870, his kids. Finding it very mysterious to where was Lily, Fred and Lucy? Lily was a granddaughter of John? Who was her parents, Julie? x

Thank you to Dave! For finding Lucy's birth information!! :)

Looks like Blanc's birth registration

Blanch Boulton -1888 - Jan/Feb/Mar - Doncaster

I wonder if Sarahs aged was record wrongly as I cant find a birth registration to match the year but I found one for 1881 not 1889.

There are to many Boulton births registered district Doncaster.

What I forgot to add on the 1911 census that John Boulton was married 43yrs - 9 children born - alive 0 children who have died.
