"The Bolton Family from Northumberland and its Connections. A record of Kinship" , by A. R. C. Bolton dated 28th February 1971 is stored at the Society of Genealogists in London. A typed manuscript of 24 pages, (reference number : Family History Tracts Vol 112,) the author writes that his knowledge of the Bolton pedigree came from the work of G. Aynsley Smith whose family owned the farm called The Chirm at Longhorsley. The pedigree which is said to have been attached to the document is missing. It had been copied by George Butler at Ewart Park, in 1927 and passed to his sister in law Mrs A. S. Butler formerly Rhoda Bolton.
