An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Boaler reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Boaler family lived in Lancashire. The name, however, is a reference to the family's former residence in Boulard, in Calvados, in Normandy.

Boaler Early Origins



The surname Boaler was first found in Lancashire. They were originally from Boulard in Calvados, Normandy, and arrived in England with Duke William of Normandy at the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066. One of the first records of the name was Baldwin de Boulers, who came to England in 1105 and was granted the Lordship of Montgomery, Powys by marriage to Sybil de Falaise. Hen Domen, (Welsh: "old mound") , a medieval timber motte-and-bailey castle in Powys, Wales was the home of the de Boulers (Bowdler) family and was founded by Baldwin de Boulers. Today, a permanent exhibition can be found on the site.

Boaler Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Boaler family name include Bowler, Boler, Boaler and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Boaler family to immigrate North America: Charles Bowler who settled in Georgia in 1733; Deborah Bowler settled in Nevis in 1663; along with her husband John; William Bowler settled in Virginia in 1635.
