View Full Version : Bolton Hall in the village of Bolton in Cumbria

I have an ancestor who is described as being of Bolton Hall (Joseph Stamper). Does anyone know anything about the history of this house please (I am presuming that this was the "big house" in Bolton in Cumbs)? I'd be interested to know how big the house is (it seems still to exist on the OS map) and if anyone knows how the Stamper family came to be moneyed.
Many thanks.

Have you looked at A2A?

Under Cumbria Record Office, Carlisle Headquarters: Carleton Cowper Family

"Property: *Capital mansion-house at Bolton (Cumberland) called Bolton Hall, with its Demesne and lands, also the lands called King Closes and the water corn mill there

*(All this Bolton estate is leased from Lord Egremont)

Property: A small freehold house and byre at Bolton (Cumberland)

Tenant: House: Joseph Stamper"

I haven't tried to make any sense of it - I'll leave that to you ;)

You can also get an idea of the size of some rural properties (and the general area) by using the old maps web-site

I am also descended from STAMPERs of Bolton Hall, and would be happy to exchange information about this family.
