One Name Search is my way of following the male lines of a number of Bolt families living on Shetland from around the year 1600 AD.
See Family of Bolts Within your own Bolt line, if you have a son, father and grandfather relationship that matches any of the family lines below or you can add ancestors or descendants, please drop me a line. With your help we can record the history of the Bolt family name and hopefully answer the question what was life like for our Bolts who work the land and sea in one of the most remote places within the British Isles.
