  • Genealogical Notes 

    • From "and they came to Mara...", p. 69:
      "The BOULTON brothers, George and William, were natives of Staffordshire, England. In approximately the 1840's, George and William, along with their other brothers, sisters and their widowed father, emigrated from England and settled in Toronto. George and William later removed to Durham County, and upon his death, George still owned land in Cartwright Township.

      In approxiamately 1867, George, Elizabeth, & family moved from Cartwright Township, to Mara Township, Atherley.

      George and William married the Dissette sisters, Elizabeth and Margaret. Both brothers lived in the Atherly vicinity and were known for their expertise in stock raising and other agricultural ventures. George was the President of the Mara Agricultural Society in January of 1882, while William was a member. In 1884, William accepted a position as manager of the asylum farm and stock in Toronto. He continued in this capacity until his untimely death in 1906.

      George remained in Mara, where several of his children married and settled, while others settled in the United States, particularly New York, where George and William had relatives. BOULTONs who remained in Mara were buried in St. Columkille's parish Cem., Uptergrove."

      ORILLIA TIMES
      MARA
      August 7, 1885
      The hay crop in this township was exceedingly light, Mr. George Boulton says the lightest he has ever seen. The rains came too late for the spring crops on heavy land, though taken as a whole they will probably prove an average yeild.
      Mr. George Boulton sold three Devon cows to Messrs. Rumsay Bros., of Westfield, New York, last week. These are well known breeders, and that they should select Mara stock is a compliment to the Township as well as to Mr. Boulton.

      THE CANADIAN POST, LINDSAY
      ATHERLEY--August 7, 1885
      Mr. George Boulton disposed of three of his fancy Devons last week to Messrs. Rumley Bros. Flatfield, N. Y. at a very handsome price. The shrewd Yankee admired Mr. Boulton's stock very much and would have taken away three more if they could have agreed on a price. Nothing in this county can beat Mr. Boulton's Devons and south down sheep.

      There was another wedding at Mr. George Bolton's on the 8th. This is the third daughter married from the same house in the last few months.

      ORILLIA TIMES
      MARA---APRIL 14, 1893
      Mr. George Boulton holds that this is the time to engage in stock-raising. Grain of every kind is cheap, and will realise better prices as fodder that for any other purpose. Indeed he contends that the farmer should not sell any but the very best grain, using that damaged or of inferior quality for feed. In this the Canadian farmer possesses a great advantage over the English agriculturalist, who is met with outside competition in every branch of his buisness, and has to maintain the Government by direct taxation, while his competitor enjoys the fullest liberty of trading in the English market and protection at home.

      ORILLIA TIMES
      MARCH 1899
      Mr. George Boulton is improving under Dr. Ardagh's care.

      THE ORILLIA TIMES

      ORILLIA TIMES

      Mr. George Boulton's grandson, Joseph Henry Dougherty, is visiting at Atherley.
      Mr. George Boulton, who was somewhat prostrated by the intense heat, is recovering his wanted good health.

      Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Hart of Uptergrove spent Sunday with Mr. George Boulton.

      ATHERLEY-April 23, 1903
      Mr. George Boulton spent Easter with his late friends in the vicinity of Whitby. It is thirty odd years since Mr. Boulton removed from the Lake Ontario front to the then backwoods of Mara, and he speaks with enthusiasm of the changes wrought in that period.

      PACKET & TIMES
      ATHERLEY--1905
      Mr. Geo. Boulton is very ill, from the effects of the fall he got when driving with Mr. Symington, whose horses took fright at an automobile and ran away. His early recovery is hoped for.

      PACKET & TIMES
      ATHERLEY--MARCH 1, 1905
      Mr. George Boulton has recently received a letter from his nephew, Brother Rogation, son of Mr. William Boulton. Brother Rogation, who is a Christian Brother, is giving a series of lectures on educational questions in Paris, France.

      THE ORILLIA PACKET
      ATHERLEY-January 18, 1912
      On Saturday last death removed one of the best known and most highly respected residents of Mara, in the person of Mr. George Boulton of Atherley. It was in March, 1869 that he removed his family from South Ontario to the farm at Atherley still connected with his name. Here he prospered, and exhibited enterprise, thrift, industry and uprightness which formed a worthy example for his generation and a proud inheritance to those who come after him. He was a pioneer in stock raising, and his herd of Devons was for many years famous as prize winners throughout the district. In politics Mr. Boulton was a staunch and consistent Liberal Conservative, and this not as an adherent to a party name, but because he believed that the Conservative policy was the best for the country. He was a sincere and devout Roman Catholic, and the funeral, on Monday was to St. Columbkill's church, Uptergrove, where interment took place. In him the PACKET has lost a loyal supportive and true friend. The East Simcoe Agricultural Society at the annual meeting yesterday afternoon, passed a resolution expressing a sense of loss in the demise of an old member and sometime director, and condolence for his family.

      THE ORILLIA PACKET
      ATHERLEY-January 25, 1912
      The death of Mr. George Boulton, on Saturday, January 13th, caused general regret. He was born in Staffordshire in 1827, received his education in England and subsequent to the death of his mother came to Canada with his father, four brothers, and three sisters of whom only his brother Cornelius of New York is now living. His father, who was a carpenter and builder, settled in Toronto, where George worked with him. In 1850 he married Eliza Dissette and of the union seven children were born. His wife and son predeceased him some years. Besides his daughters, he is survived by forty-two grandchildren and seven great grand-children. The funeral took place on Monday morning, from his late residence to St. Columbkill's church, Uptergrove. Requiem Mass was sung by the Rev. Father Sheridan. The pallbearers were six grandsons, Messrs. James and Jeremiah Clark, John and George Dougherty, Carl and Francis Leonard. Those from a distance were Mrs. Kalb, Miss Minnie Boulton, and Miss Genevieve Weiss, from Chicago; Miss Margaret Boulton, Mr. Jeremiah Clark and Mrs. Jos. McCarron, from Toronto; Mr. and Mrs. John Dougherty of Midland. George Boulton was a devoted husband, a kind father, a staunch friend, a loyal subject, a useful citizen-----a Conservative of the old school.
