Lanier Family

My understanding is that every Lanier in the world is related, as the name has come from a single source. This is a line that I have not personally researched, though it has apparently been researched by numerous persons. The bolded names are my personal ancestors in the line.

Pay special attention to the numbering of the generations, as this is pasted in from another program and may lose some formatting.

Bolling Family

Information received through third party. It is a very well researched line and purportedly connects to Mary Ann Bolling, daughter of Ann Stith. There are a few questions about the identity of Robert Bolling I have yet to resolve. This does not appear to be the same line of James P. Bolding. Other researchers have uncovered the various spelling of the name Bolling and have concluded that, not only did some lines spell it in various ways, but some of them married Boldings, Bourlands, etc. and even these lines then adopted “Bolling” as a spelling.

I have searched like mad everywhere to find the origins of James P. Bolding, even going so far as to look amongst the people of the Melungeons, but I do not believe we are of this group. The more I have thought on it and considered the culture of my mother’s Southern family, the more sense it makes that we would not have crossed paths with them or with the other unusual mixes. I have found that there were a group of surveyors out of Baltimore who spelled the name “Boulding”, but I do not know of a connection. James P. Bolding’s daughter, Della, appears in the 1910 Clovis Co., New Mexico, census with the spelling of “Boulding”.

This particular line comes through Elizabeth Fisher rather than James P. Bolding.

9. Robert DEBOLLING III was born in 1370. He died after 1422. Robert married Margaret THORNOE

10. Robert BOLLING IV was born about 1396 in Bolling Hall, England. He died on 23 Oct 1457/1487. Robert married Isabel THORNTON.

11. Tristam BOLLINGI was born about 1490 in Bradford, York, England. He died after 1502.Tristam married Beatrice CALVERLEY. Beatrice was born before 1494.
