BOLST Family Tree

with links to British India 

The WebThis site

info from Christine Bolst

(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
