BOLST Family Tree
with links to British India
info from Christine Bolst firstname.lastname@example.org
(I was reading Moire Breen's recipe for Fish Molie with great interest. My father was Eliott Bolst's brother , Bertram , I am the youngest of Bertram's children , there were six of us . We knew Eliott as uncle Bunny . Many of their recipes were borrowed from my mother Edith Bolst , My father was a Tannery Inspector in Cawnpore , touring all over India , late ' 30s early '40s , In the early years the brothers worked together in the tannery business , killing the animals , eg:- crocodiles , snakes , wild pig , yes even the poor tigers , in those days it was the ' In ' thing to have luggage , handbags , shoes , belts , on floors and walls , made from these poor creatures , The brothers eventually went their separate ways , dad to the Harness and Saddlery factory in Cawnpore , uncle Bunny to Bangalore , first he and his wife Esther owned a clove and cardamom farm , later is when the Bolst Pickles were born , in the late ' 40s early ' 50s the family moved to Australia .
I have an early ' Family tree ' starting in 1636 , with a Boltz , he became the Governor Chinchrur West Bengal , his son had three sons changed the name to Bolts , William , Charles . and Frederick Constantine , once again the name changed to Bolst , remained so ever since . One was even the Mint Master of Madras . There are quite a few more details I would like to know . Did I descend from William, Charles or Constantine [lovely name, isn't it ?]
May be a useless bit of my history , interesting none the less , Best Regards, Christine Bolst
