Bolling Early Origins



The surname Bolling was first found in Lancashire and Yorkshire. For the Yorkshire branch, the name was thought to have been derived from a local name Bowling, a chapelry near Bradford, but census records are relatively late for this name as the first found was Tristram Bollyng of Bradford c. 1580. The same reference states that his grandson Robert Bollyng was a "sadler and silk trowster" residing in London. To confuse matters more, the name could also have been a baptismal name as "the son of Bolling".

Bolling Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Bolling family name include Bolling, Bowling, Boling, Bollings, Bollinge and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Bolling surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
