(Wife-Doubtful) MarriageWilliam Bolton married a woman named Mary ______ who was almost certainly not Mary Nurse. Most published sources, however, have perpetuated this erroneous information as fact. No record has yet been found for the marriage of William Bolton. A record was found for the marriage of Mary Nurse and Edward Powers on 17 Mar 1747/48 at Rutland, Massachusetts. The record for the birth of William's son William on 21 Jan 1743/44 in Reading, Massachusetts identified him as the son of William and Mary Bolton. Although the researching descendants of William and Mary would love to claim Mary Nurse as an ancestor, they are determined to set the record straight as they pursue the truth.4,2
Historical Note* Mary Nurse, the wife of Edward Powers, although often identified incorrectly as the wife of William Bolton, was the great granddaughter of Rebecca Nurse, who was charged (and twice did not have a verdict against her) with witchcraft in a case that began 24 Mar 1692.5
(Mother-Doubtful) Birth5 May 1759The Boltons of Old and New England source surmised that Mary and William Bolton's son, Timothy Bolton, born on 5 May 1759 in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), may have been named for his mother's cousin, Timothy Nurse, brother of Jonathan Nurse, however it is now known that Timothy's mother, while named Mary, was not Mary Nurse.3,2,6
