More Edward Boles family photos

Apart from those photos posted in the previous post on the Edward Boles family, these are the only other early photos I have. Standing in the rear of the first photo are May Boles and her father Edward Boles. The pretty young woman with the headband on the right is Sophie Boles, a niece of Edward’s (daughter of Edward’s younger brother Robert). Seated in front is Sophie’s mother (Jane Stuart Boles, wife of Robert Boles), Jennie Boles (another of Edward’s daughters), and Sarah Nixon Boles (Edward’s wife and mother of Jennie & May). I don’t have a date for the photo, but it was taken before July 1928, which is when May died.

The second photo is of Sophie Boles with her brother Robert Boles (children of Robert and Jane Boles, who had one more child – James Herbert), and on the right is cousin Jennie Boles (Edward Boles’ daughter, my grandfather’s sister).

  1. One of these days I’ll have to check into my ancestor’s. Have tried but find it difficult. My grandfather came from St. Kitts, but born in St. Vincent, his parents born on other islands, but must have come from England at some point. When I finish with my current blog, perhaps I’ll spend the money and join Ancestry.

    • Sounds like Ancestry is the best way to go in your case; at least it should provide you with some data to sift through. They offer free trials, so you may even be able to gather enough info and then go off on your own to research more. (I have yet to join Ancestry but keep thinking I should, even though I hate to spend the money). Good luck! Sounds like you have an interesting heritage.

    • Thanks for your comment, John. I’m glad you found the previous photo interesting. I wish I had more such images.

    • I think the house was in Drumkeeran. I remember my cousin Robin showing it to me several decades ago during a trip to Ireland. I have a photo of it somewhere. It looked very rundown. I always thought the name of the house was “Clooneen” but now I see that there is a town called Clooneen that is much bigger than and quite a distance from Drumkeeran. So I am not sure whether I have things straight.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
