Richard Boles of Cork's Family Tree
Back to The Boles of Cork or Thomas Boles of Cork's Family Tree
Richard Boles (I) b. ~ 1614 (lived Ballynalty, co. Cork, Ireland) (brother of Thomas Boles of Kilbree, co. Cork)
m.  Abigail ?  (b. ~ 1623  ref.) ~ 1640
(note: Richard was at Liscarroll in November 1641 with his wife and a newborn baby according to his deposition of 1645)
(this was an Abigail but not Abigail Ende as was reported in Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland explanation)
1. Francis Boles b. ~ 1641 Liscarroll (the Civil Census (Pender's Census) of 1659 lists 'Richard Boles and his son Francis' so Francis must have been at least 18 and so was likely the child born at Liscarroll in 1641) 
m. Mary Alwyn (father: William Alwyn) 1670
1.1  William Boles b. ~ January 1672
(possibly) m. Catherine Blanke 1694 (Index to the Marriage License Bonds of the Diocese of Cork and Ross)
Francis d. 1674 Ballinlawbeg, co. Cork (his Will signed Apr. 24, 1674 and probated Jan. 8, 1675)
(he pre-deceased his father making his bother Thomas the principal heir to their father's holdings)
(his widow, Mary Boles alias Alwyn, may have remarried as there is an entry in the above mentioned index for a Mary Bowles marriage to a James Hingston in 1679)
2. Thomas Boles b. ~ 1643
m. Ann Warner (b. June 19, 1656 Ballynakilly, co. Cork; Edward, Eleanor Magner) 1676 co. Cork
(inherited from his father in 1693 but died in 1696)
2.1  Thomas Boles b. ~ 1680 co. Cork
m. Catherine Upton (b. ~ 1680; father: William of Ballinabearna, co. Limerick, Mary Conyers) 1703 co. Cork
He inherited the family estate in 1696.  Thomas built the family great house at Moyge, co. Cork; when his son Richard married in 1737 he took over that domain and Thomas and Catherine moved to Killybraher (Kilbreedy), co. Cork. 
2.1.1  Richard Boles (V) b. ~ 1705 co. Cork
m. Ann White (b. ~ 1710; father: Swithin White) 1737 (a distant cousin, See 6.1.1 Anne White in Thomas Boles of Cork's Family Tree)  Thomas Boles b. ~ 1740 co. Cork
m. Grace Godsell (b. ~ 1740; Amos, Grace Carleton) 1766 Sunville, co. Limerick
(they were 'of Moyge' when he was admitted as a Freeman of Fethard in 1774 but must have moved out, likely to Charleville where his wife died in 1816, as he had assigned his holdings to his eldest son by 1808.  In that year Richard VII sold his lease on the Moyge estate to a Philip Nunan.  The Griffith Survey recorded the occupier of Moyge to be Phillip's grandson, a Maurice Newman. The name Newman is another example of a Catholic Irish family adopting a more common English spelling of their name.  The house remained in the family as the 1901 census shows the great house at Moyge occupied by three unmarried RC and Irish-speaking sisters, Anna Maria, Betsey and Mary Nunan ironically being cared for by one servant, a Maggie Bowles.)  Richard Boles (VII) b. ~ 1768  Will
(sold the family estate at Moyge in 1808; lived in Dublin but still held some land at Moyge, co. Cork and in co. Kildare which he left to his brother Thomas according to his 1815 Will; his younger brothers and sisters returned to England; he was a Lt. Col. in 23rd Regiment of Light Dragoons)

m. Catherine Rogers (b. ~ 1673; George Rogers of Ashgrove, co. Cork; Anne Atkins) 1717

m. Mary Upton ~ 1680
(no children are mentioned in his Will)
(note: this is probably the "Jonathan Boles of Newcastle, co. Limerick" who was "attainted of high treason in King James parliament in 1689"; the Upton family was from Newcastle in Limerick)
Jonathan d. ~ 1705 Killybraher, co. Cork (his Will signed Dec. 27, 1704 and Probate Feb. 9, 1705)
6. Richard Boles (II) b. ~ 1656 (Richard son of Richard both of Ballinalty in 1686)
m. Abigail Lawry (or Lavery or Savery) (b. July 21, 1659; Daniel Lawry, wife Mary, Mallow, co. Cork) May 1, 1679 Mallow, Cork  ref.
(others believe he married an Abigail Ende  ~ 1674 Cashel but the above reference is pretty clear; Richard was convinced of the Friends faith about the same time as his sister Abigail was; he established a Friends Burial Ground on a plot on his land at Ballynalty which was used by the Charleville Meeting; in 1688 he was the first to be buried there)
6.1  Mary Boles b. 1680
m. Richard Baker of Cashel 2 IV 1696 [June 2, 1696] (Tipperary   A471905-0959)
(Richard and Mary came before the Munster 6 Weeks Meeting on Mar. 30, 1696 and expressed their intention to marry but they were refused permission as Mary was underage; their parents were criticized for letting them come before the meeting and the matter was referred to the Knockgraffon Meeting; Mary was of Ballynalty then so it would seem that Richard was a member of the Knockgraffon Meeting; they appeared again at the next meeting (May 2, 1696) and this time they received approval; someone influenced somebody between the meetings; the Munster Quarterly Meeting a month later records their marriage certificate)
6.2  Francis Boles b. aft. 1685 (not mentioned in William Boles' Will dated July 1685 although his sister Mary was)  (sugar refiner) (lived Moyge, co. Cork)
6.3  Richard Boles (IV)
m. Catherine Rogers (b. 1st mo.5.1685/86 (Mar. 5, 1686);  Francis Rogers, Catherine End) 11th mo.4.1703 (Jan. 4, 1704)
(they lived at Ballynalty, a part of Moyge, until at least 1720 but they were in London by about 1722 (see the note below))
See Sorting Out the Richard Boles/Catherine Rogers Couples
6.3.1  Francis Boles b. Jan. 21, 1704/05 Ballynalty, co. Cork

6.3.2  Richard Boles (VI) b. July 12, 1706 Ballynalty, co. Cork
Richard d. June 18, 1724 St Martin in the Fields, London bur. at Longaere Burial Ground
6.3.3  William Boles b. Nov. 21, 1707 Ballynalty, co. Cork
(note: possibly this was the William Bowles who was Alexander the Coppersmith and/or the botanist/geologist Guillermo Bowles; if so he died in Spain in 1780)
6.3.4  John Boles b. Oct. 1, 1709 Ballynalty, co. Cork
6.3.5  Robert Boles b. 1710 Ballynalty, co. Cork
6.3.6  possibly Katherine Boles b. ca. May 1723 d. Sept. 7, 1724 St Martin in the Fields, London bur. at Longaere Burial Ground
(Richard was allowed to bury one of his children on 6 IX 1718 (Dec. 6, 1718) in the Friends Cork Street Burial Ground, that could be one of the above or a child born after Richard left the faith)
Richard seems to have fallen out of the Friends faith as there were several discussions at Friends Meetings between 1708 and 1717 regarding his behaviour; in one instance he took offence to another Friend, drew pistols and offered a duel, it was against Quaker principles to carry firearms or to settle differences in a violent way;  Richard disappears from Quaker records after 1718; he possibly lived at Ballinalty in 1720 ref. ; they were in London by about 1722 when they tried to market a cure for ruptures; by 1727 Richard had taken his cure to Paris (see The Boles Cure for Ruptures) but Catherine remained in London where she  died in great poverty (Francis Roger's family history as recorded by the Munster Meeting) but a reference regarding Catherine says her husband was thought to be in France in 1729.

m. Susanna Biker (Robert, Frances) 1706 Dublin
[While George and Frances were both raised as Quakers they married out of their faith, the Friends registry: 1707 Dublin bk. 4, p. 221 states George Boles son of John Boles of co. Carlow was married “by a priest”; Susanna's mother's Will of 1761 refers to her daughter Susanna married to a Bowles as well as 5 of her Bowles grandchildren; all of their children except the eldest son John returned to Friends probably influenced by their Boles grandfather]

m. Sarah Palmer (b. 1827) (he married out of the faith)  (Sir) Howard Grubb b. 1844 Rathmines, Dublin
(like his father he was a leading astronomical instrument maker and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Dublin; Grubb of Dublin continued to be large telescope makers until the 1st World War when they moved to Newcastle and eventually became Grubb-Parsons who were responsible for building the 150 inch Anglo-Australian Telescope and much of the William Herschel Telescope currently in operation in the Canary Islands)

William d. 1774
Margaret d. 1780
7.1.3  John Boles
(he professed to have returned to the Friends faith but he fell out with his grandfather who disinherited him in his Will dated Sept. 14, 1731; apparently he was not willing to accept the loss of his share of a very large inheritance; the Clonmel Meeting minutes dated 23.XI.1731 (Jan. 23, 1732 by the modern calendar) show that the 'scandalous reports spreading among People of John Boles son of George Boles and whereas he had been educated among Friends and made profession of truth ...' and that they would have to be inquired into and if found true this would lead to a 'denial'; the result of their inquiry as reported in their Meeting minutes of 5.I.1731 (March 5, 1732) states that John Boles had been attempting 'to bribe Ann Boles' servants to make way for him to get into possession of her house to which he has no just right therefore for his evil design and misbehaviour we can do no less than clear our profession of such doings and deny him and his actions')

m. Mary around 1732 and then they baptized: (see the following note)  George Bowles bp. Nov. 2, 1736 St. Luke, Dublin
he may be the ancestor of the Bowles of Killenaule and the Kilcooly lines; see The Bowles of Crohane
George Bowles d. Feb. 9, 1777 bur. Killenaule at age 42  Jonathan Bowles bp. Nov. 2, 1736 St. Luke, Dublin
(note: while these two were baptized the same day they were not likely twins; this may reflect that they had one or both of these children during the period that John was still trying to get accepted into the Friends faith after they denied him in 1732 but finally in 1736 accepted the situation and had his 2 children baptized in the Church of Ireland)  John Bowles bp. Apr. 25, 1740 St. Mary, Dublin
he may have been John Bowles of Fethard, co. Tipperary  Margaret Bowles b. Dec. 20, bp. Dec. 26, 1742 St. Mary, Dublin
John Bowles bur. June 2, 1742 St Mary Dublin (could be either John Sr. or John Jr.)
There were Bowles around Killenaule in the late 1700's with several apparent connections to people on land formerly held by John Bowles of Woodhouse or his immediate neighbours which could indicate a connection to his line.  This John Bowles, his grandson, has the only undocumented line due to his disownment from the Friend's faith.  See The Bowles of Killenaule and Woodhouse Connections  for a discussion of those connections and a potential family tree which would connect this John Bowles to The Bowles of Killenaule.

7.1.4  George Boles (See Friends References for the George Boles Family)
m. Susannah Jessop (Andrew, Frances Barrington) 3.VII.1738 Meath Street, Dublin
(the Quaker registry [Dublin bk.4 p.12] entry states George and Susannah are both “of Dublin” and his father was George Boles of Woodhouse, co. Tipperary; George was a chandler (candle maker) in 1749 when he was admitted as a Freeman of Dublin ref. and in 1755 probate abstract below)  Frances Boles b. 12 IV 1739 [June 12, 1739] Dublin  Mary Boles b. 4 VI 1740 [Aug. 4, 1740] Dublin  Abigail Boles b. 13 IX 1741 [Nov. 13, 1741] Dublin

living in 1800

(In February 1795 the Dublin Men's Meeting inquired into the care which Frances and Susannah (her mother) who were 'deranged in the intellect' were receiving from a Friends family (Stephen and Ruth Dalton) in Lambstown, Wexford and in March were reassured by the Wexford Meeting that Frances was in good care but that Susannah had passed away on Feb. 3;  in November 1800 Frances was admitted into the Friend's poorhouse under the care of her sister Abigail; in 1812 she was admitted to the Friend's 'Retreat' which was a term used for the new Friends facility for "Friends who may be afflicted with disorders of the mind" at Bloomfield House which opened that year; she died at Bloomfield in 1818 at age 75)

Note: I would like to express my appreciation to Nick Boles of London, a direct descendant of the Boles of Cork, who has provided, and continues to provide, a huge amount of information and guidance to me in the ongoing development of the Boles of Cork pages in particular but also on several other Bowles in Ireland and Bowles in England pages.  Also, my appreciation to the valuable information found in the Registry of Deeds Index Project and in particular to Mike's help identifying deeds of interest to my Boles/Bowles histories.  The images included here from the British India Office collection were made available online by the excellent FindMyPast.co.uk family history resource site.  These images may not be used for any commercial purpose without permission from the British India Office.

While researching this family in the British India Office resources on findmypast.co.uk I came across several other Boles references which may or may not pertain to this family but I cannot place them anywhere so far.  If anyone should be able to help me with the following I would really appreciate it:
