Re: Albert Bolton

Peter, Albert Bolton married Mildred Roberts in 1908 in Leighton Buzzard. On the 1911 they appear to be in Rhonnda, Wales.
He is a Miner Underground and Army Pensioner. They have had 2 children born alive but one had died. The living one is Reuben George aged 2.

Re: Albert Bolton

Hi Lynne,

Thank you for the information regarding Albert Bolton. His age would fit and being ex Army also but place for birth does not. Albert was bon Leighton Buzzard, Beds and I have only found one Albert Bolton on FreeBMD site for LB. The marriage details for 1908 also fit in with info obtained, again from FreeBMD site. Could it be an error on the census returns.

Regards

Peter

Re: Albert Bolton

Hi Theodore, The place for birth on the 1911 that Lynne found is Buckinghamshire, Parish Wing. If you look at the Freebmd record and click on Leighton B and then on where it says click "here" it shows you the areas included under Leighton B and Wing is on there. LB also spans Beds and Bucks..hope this helps

Re: Albert Bolton

Peter, I had the same results as Lynne too, so could be a misreading of the census by the transciber or an error in the info given by whoever gave the details to the enumerator - or even miscomprehension on his part.
As you say, there is only one Albert Bolton born in Leighton Buzzard, so looks as if a recording error is the answer. Will have another look tomorrow, mentime have you tried looking on familysearch.org too?

Re: Albert Bolton

On the 1881 Census, the nearest to Alberts birth year, the family are living in Littleworth Hamlet of Wing, Rural Sanitary District, Leighton Buzzard Union. Maybe that was the Registration area for these little villages and hamlets.

Re: Albert Bolton

Lynne, that would fit with the info on FreeBMD..

"BoltonAlbertLeighton B.3b403
The district Leighton B. is an alternative name for Leighton Buzzard and it spans the boundaries of the counties of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire; information about it can be found here......"

https://www.ukbmd.org.uk/genuki/reg/districts/leighton%20buzzard.html shows the list of places in the LB Registration District.
Wing was placed under Aylesbury RG in 1935

Re: Albert Bolton

Hi All,

Thank you for the feedback regarding my posting. I think Lindyloo has come up with the solution to the reference Buckinghamshire (Wing) on 1911 census and that it is the Albert Bolton I was searching for.
Just checked the birth place for Mildred Roberts on FreeBMD and it is Newtown, Montgomeryshire so I think this would confirm the above.

Bewdley,
7729 Pte. Albert Bolton 2nd Worcesters is indeed the same Albert Bolton.

Again thank you one and all for your help.

Regards

Peter

Albert Bolton's mmn was Walter and he was registered in Leighton Buzzard district.

Other Bolton/Walter children listed were John 1875, Robert Thomas 1878, Arthur Lionel 1887 & Berty Cyril 1890.

There is also George 1870, George 1872 and Alice 1872 registered St Pancras and the parents (Henry and Elizabeth) do appear to be living in Kentish Town in 1871 so possibly theirs.
