Birth*24 June 1635John Borden's birth record with a date of 24 June 1635 was recorded in Dedham, Massachusetts Bay Colony, as "John, the son of John Balden and Joana his wife". Anderson, in his Gay-Borden source, expressed concern regarding this date and the placing of it in the Dedham register of births.

Thankful Borden1

ChartsDescendants of Nicholas Boulton, The Immigrant
Marriage Intention17 July 1760An intention of marriage for Thankful Borden of Freetown and Jonathan Bolton of Dartmouth was recorded on 17 July 1760 in Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2
Marriage*10 September 1760She married Jonathan Bolton, son of Jonathan Sprague Jr. and Susanna Bolton, on 10 September 1760 in Tiverton, Newport County, Rhode Island. The record indicated that both were of Dartmouth, Bristol County, Massachusetts, although their intention noted that Thankful was of Freetown. They were married by Samuel Hicks, Justice.1
Census 1790*1790Thankful Bolton was likely enumerated on the 1790 census in the household of her husband Jonathan Bolton in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The household consisted of 3 males aged 16 and over, 2 males under the age of 16 and 1 female. Son John had his own household on neighboring land in 1790, so it is suspected that Jonathan and his sons David and Thomas were the 3 older males, that their wife and mother Thankful was the female and that the 2 younger males were as yet unidentified children of the couple.3,4
Census 1800*1800Thankful Bolton was likely enumerated on the 1800 census in the household of her husband Jonathan Bolton in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The household had 1 male aged 10 thru 15, 1 male aged 45 and over and 1 female aged 45 and over. Jonathan and Thankful's son John was enumerated with his growing family at a neighboring farm.5

The deed was recorded a year after it was signed, on 26 Mar 1807, and identified the tract or parcel of land, situated in Freetown, as part of Jonathan's homestead farm containing by estimation ten acres, "be it the same more or less", and was described as follows: Beginning at a Maple tree standing by the side of the Mill River, thence running as the river runs until it comes to the Abram Ashley land, thence Westerly along the Ashley line until it comes to a spring brook, thence Northerly along the brook until it comes to Joshua Crapo's land, thence Southerly along the Crapo line until it comes to the southeast corner of Joshua Crapo's land, thence Southerly, in or about the same direction, to the Maple tree first mentioned. The deed was signed by Jonathan Bolton and with the mark of Thankful Bolton with Thomas White and Porsilla (Priscilla?) Crapo as witnesses.6
Land Transfer*31 October 1806Jonathan Bolton, a yeoman of Freetown, and his wife Thankful Bolton signed a deed agreement on 31 October 1806 to sell land in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts, to Thomas White, a yeoman of Dartmouth, for the sum of $200. The deed was dated and signed on 31 October 1806, and recorded on 1 Nov 1806. It described the tract or parcel of land situated in Freetown, bounded as follows: Containing twenty-six acres ___________ and bounded Northerly by land belonging to Augustus Chase, Easterly and Southerly by Calvin Reynolds' land, Westerly by Peregrine White's land and is the one-half of that lot of land, taken off at the North end, which he, Jonathan Bolton, and his son, John Bolton, bought from Bethuel Borden. It was signed with the marks of Jonathan Bolton and Thankful Bolton, with Thomas Bolton and David Bolton as witnesses.7
Land Transfer26 March 1807Her husband, Jonathan Bolton, a yeoman of Freetown, signed a deed agreement which was recorded on 26 March 1807 to sell land in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts, to Benjamin Crapo and Thomas White, yeomen of Freetown and Dartmouth, respectively, for the sum of $150. The deed identified Jonathan Bolton's "homestead farm" situated and lying in Freetown, bounded as follows: Beginning at the Northeast corner of Abram Ashley's land which lays on the South side of the road that runs by Peregrine White's and is a part of the land which Abram Ashley bought from Joshua Crapo, thence running Easterly by that same road until it comes to John Borden's land until it comes to Lemuel Borden's land, thence Westerly by Lemuel Borden's land until it comes to the Mill River, thence Northerly by that river until it comes to the Northeast corner of Benjamin Crapo's land until it comes to Abram Ashley's land, thence Northerly by Abram Ashley's land until it comes to the above mentioned road, and containing forty acres, "be it the same more or less". Jonathan Bolton signed with his mark, with (Malaeths____or____Merchant??) White and Thomas Bolton as witnesses.8
(Wife) Deathbefore 1810Her husband, Jonathan Bolton, may have died before 1810 when Thankful was enumerated on the 1810 Census as Head of Household and the only other member of her household was a male too young to have been Jonathan.9
Census 1810*1810Thankful Bolton appeared as "Thanke Botton" on the 1810 census as the Head of Household in Freetown, Bristol County, Massachusetts. Her household consisted of 1 male aged 26 thru 44 and 1 female ages 45 and over.9

Nicholas Boulton

b. 1600, d. 27 May 1683
Relationship2nd great-grandfather of John Bolton
ChartsDescendants of Nicholas Boulton, The Immigrant
Name-DescriptiveNicholas was the progenitor of most, if not all, of the Boltons originating in Plymouth County and Bristol County, Massachusetts, in the 1600s, 1700s and early 1800s. The descriptive name we have used to clarify his identity on the site is Nicholas Boulton the Immigrant.
Birth*1600He was born in 1600 in England. His date of birth was calculated from his recorded age of 83 at his death in 1683.
Immigration*1644He emigrated, probably, from England and arrived in Dorchester, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), sometime before 1644 when his name appeared for the first time in Dorchester records. He was the ancestor to almost all of the Boltons found to be living in Suffolk, Plymouth, Bristol and Norfolk counties in Massachusetts during our targeted time period.
Freeman*29 May 1644Nicholas Boulton was a Freeman on 29 May 1644 in Dorchester, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England). This meant that he was legally recognized as a white male over 21 years of age holding full rights of citizenship, being free to engage in a trade or business, own land, and to vote.1
Marriage*He married Elizabeth ______.2
Name-SpellingsHis surname was also spelled BOLTON.1
Biographical Info* Nicholas rang the bell and kept the church in order. He petitioned twice to the Selectmen for approval for his wife to sell cider, and was refused both times.1,3
Land Transfer*17 October 1676Nicholas Boulton was identified as a neighbor in a Dorchester, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), deed between William Stoughton Esq. and Ebenezer Williams dated 17 October 1676. The Worshipful William Stoughton Esq. of Dorchester, for the sum of £80 current money of New England, transferred land to Ebenezer Williams, a cooper, also of Dorchester. The parcel of land was described as 2 acres, be it more or less, being now an orchard with a dwelling house upon it, situated in Dorchester, and being part of the home lot which was formerly the lot of Henry Withington and then the lot of his son John Withington. It was bounded South Easterly with the land of Nicholas Boulton, South Westerly with the land of the aforesaid William Stoughton, Northwest with the highway leading from the town to the meeting house, North Easterly with the way leading to the calves pasture: together with a barn and garden plot and piece of meadow as it is now fenced in lying on the North Easterly side of the aforesaid way as it is all now fenced in, including both the orchard and the barn.4,5
Death*27 May 1683He died on 27 May 1683 in Dorchester, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).6,7
Will*Nicholas Boulton left a will which was probated in 1683 in Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England). Although the index has survived, the original documents have not. They appear to have been lost before they could be filmed.8
(Original Owner) Land Transfer23 August 1734Three of his grandsons, Elisha Bolton, Nathaniel Bolton and Nicholas Bolton signed individual deed agreements to sell land in Dorchester and Stoughton to David Leach, yeoman, of Kingston, Plymouth County for the sum of twenty pounds each. Each transaction was identified as a sale of all rights and title to lands that their father, John Bolton, late of Bridgewater, died seized of in the township of Stoughton, alias Dorchester, in the county of Suffolk. The three documents were recorded in Suffolk County on 23 August 1734. Although the location of the Dorchester and Stoughton land each of the brothers sold was not described, it was very likely part of the land laid out previously to the right of the brother's grandfather, Nicholas Boulton the Immigrant, in the Twenty-Five Divisions of Land late in the township of Dorchester and now in the township of Stoughton. When their grandfather died in 1683, their father John Bolton inherited the land, and when he died in December of 1721, the remaining Dorchester/Stoughton land was passed on to his children, each receiving a one-ninth part.9
(Original Owner) Land Transfer13 March 1744/45Nicholas Bolton's grandson, Elisha Bolton, while residing in Easton, Bristol County, signed a deed agreement on 13 March 1744/45 to sell land in Stoughton, Suffolk County, to Joseph Gilbert, also of Easton, for the sum of Fifty pounds, two shillings. The document was recorded in Suffolk County on 18 February 1746. The land was described as a sixth part of the 11th and a sixth part of one 11 parts of a certain piece or tract of land situated, lying and being in the township of Stoughton by estimation 30 acres more or less and bounded southerly by the Colony line and westerly by the land of Jeremiah Willis in Stoughton, and easterly from Jeremiah Willis' dwelling house. Clarifying further, the deed stated, "that is to say 6 parts of 11 parts and 6 parts of one part of 11."

According to the deed, the land involved was a part of a lot of land formally laid out to the right of Nicholas Bolton, Elisha's grandfather, in the Twenty-Five Divisions of Land, late in the township of Dorchester and now in the township of Stoughton as may appear from the Records of Dorchester "reference thereto being had and also taking in an old field within the land which lyeth easterly from said Jeremiah Willis' lands." As part of the sale, Elisha signed, sealed and confirmed that he was the true, sole and lawful owner of the described premises and was seized and possessed of them in his own proper right as a good, perfect and absolute Right of Inheritance in Fee Simple.10
(Original Owner) Land Transfer4 February 1748Nicholas Bolton's grandson, John Bolton, gentleman, a resident of Bridgewater, Plymouth County, signed a deed agreement on 4 February 1748 to sell land in Stoughton, Suffolk County, to Joseph Gilbert, yeoman, of Easton, Bristol County for the sum of twenty-four pounds, one shilling and five pence. The document was recorded in Suffolk County on 15 February 1748. The land was described as a certain tract of land laid out previously to the right of John's grandfather Nicholas Bolton in the Twenty-Five Divisions of Land late in the township of Dorchester and now in the township of Stoughton. The original Bolton tract contained thirty-two acres and fifteen rods, bounded as follows: beginning at the North and South line then on the Colony line West 18 Degrees South 65 Rods and six feet to a heap of stones a corner thence North 27 Degrees West 76 Rods to a corner in Jeremiah Willis line thence East 27 Degrees North 64 rods to a square corner eighty-four rods to the first mentioned corner. The deed further stated that John's full right of the described tract was nine acres and a half and twenty rods and a half, be it more or less.

As part of the sale, John signed, sealed and confirmed that he was the true, sole and lawful owner of the described premises and was lawfully seized and possessed of them in his own proper right as a good, perfect and absolute Estate of Inheritance in Fee Simple.11
(5th Great Grandfather) LineageHe was probably an ancestor of Harry Emmett Bolton, who stated to the New England Historic and Genealogical Society, sometime before his death in 1958, that he was unable to prove the ancestry of his great-grandfather, Lemuel Bolton, but he believed that Lemuel was the son of William, the son of Nathaniel, the son of Nicholas, the Immigrant. Our research indicates that Harry's 2nd Great-Grandfather, if William Bolton, was actually the son of Elisha Bolton, Nathaniel's brother. It appears from the French & Indian War records that the young William was very close to his Uncle Nathaniel, and they may have continued their close relationship later in life as well. Nathaniel and Elisha Bolton were sons of John Bolton who was the son of the immigrant Nicholas Boulton.12,13
