The name Boultere finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a sifter of meal. Other evidence suggests that the surname Boultere was established as an area called Boulder. From there people acquired the surname. The name is also derived from the Old English word bulder which means boulder or cobblestone. Alternatively the name could have been derived from the word bolter which was a miller. Boulter's Lock and Boutler's Island are both located on the River Thames on the eastern side of Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Boultere Early Origins



The surname Boultere was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



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 Boultere or a variant listed above: Nathanial Boulter who settled in Hampton New Hampshire in 1630; William Boulter settled in New England in 1748; John Bolteir settled in Virginia in 1654..
