Early Origins of the Bollings family


The surname Bollings 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".

Migration of the Bollings family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Bollingss to arrive in North America: George Bolling who settled in Virginia in 1725; Christian Bolling who settled in Mississippi in 1789; and Fritz Bolling who arrived in New York in 1871..
