Guernsey Butchers : Bolitho


Thomas Bolitho was born in Jersey of Cornish parents. His father was a miner, who was attracted to the Channel Islands by the quarrying industry. They then moved to Alderney in the 1840s, most likely to work on Alderney's breakwater - a major construction project which brought many English labourers to the island between 1847 and 1864. Thomas became a butcher in Alderney, and as the population declined after the end of the breakwater project, moved to Guernsey in the 1870s.


Thomas BOLITHO ( 1813 - ? ) married Margaret LANGSFORD ( 1811 - ? )
