History of Bolton
NB: This information is sourced from Bulmers 1892 directory.
BOLTON township contains 982 acres of land, the property of T. N. F. Bardwell, Esq., M.A., J.P., D.L., Bolton Hall (lord of the manor); Mrs. Thompson, Pocklington; and several small freeholders. It is valued for rating purposes at £1,348, and had in 1891 a population of 118. The village, which is small and straggling, is situated one-and-a-half miles south-east of Fangfoss station, on the York and Market Weighton railway, three miles south-west of Bishop Wilton, and three miles north-west of Pocklington. The Wesleyans have a small chapel here, built in 1869, with cemetery attached. About one-and-a-half miles south of the village is Bolton Hall, the seat of T. N. F. Bardwell, Esq. It is a large and handsome brick mansion, erected in 1760, and very considerably enlarged by the present owner. Mr. Bardwell is the only son of Frederick Bardwell, Esq., J.P., of Woodleigh, Notts., by Anne, daughter of Maurice Rodgers, Esq., and was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple, in 1877.
