I have the baptism registers of Coppull from 1757 to 1904. There is no
listing for Johnathon Bolton.
I then thought he may have been baptised at Standish St Wilfrid. Their
baptisms are on the British VRI, I have searched that and he is not there.
Do you have him on any census showing an age and place of birth? Do you know
his religion? If he was Catholic he could have been baptised at St Gregory's
Weld Bank, I only have their registers from 1850 (there was a Bolton bapt
there in 1851). He may even have been baptised at Standish Hall, I have
their early registers but they are not indexed, so I would need a rough idea
of the date.
There are Boltons still in Coppull, all Church of England.
By the way, should 1923 read 1823?
