Early Origins of the Bouling family
The surname Bouling was first found in Lancashire
. 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 Bouling family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Bouling or a variant listed above:
