Martha BURGOYNE who married Joseph BOALER in Derbyshire, UK, abt 1771?
Hi folks :-)
Does anybody know anything about Martha BURGOYNE who married Joseph BOALER abt 1771?
My wife's mother was a BOALER and direct decendent of Jospeh Boaler. We have been trying to sort out the BOALER family tree.... mainly centered in north Nottinghamshire.
Joseph seems to have links with the Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire and it is possible that he was a gamekeeper for the estate ... his decendents certainly were for several generations.
There has been some talk within the family that Martha has links with Bolton Abbey in Yorkshire. We understand that there is a painting of a "BURGOYNE" who was a gamekeeper in the private house at Bolton Abbey in Warfdale, Yorkshire ... so maybe this is a possible link to Martha???
We have not seen this painting but we know somebody who has a few years ago when they were allowed into the house...
We would love to hear from anybody who has news of Martha.
Many thanks Mike & Veronica
