About Tristam Bolling of Chellow

Tristram Bolling, the eldest son of Robert Bolling, of Bolling Hall, was born c.1427 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England. He married Beatrix, daughter of Sir Walter Calverley, of Calverley c.1446 in Yorkshire, England. This marriage produced his daughter Rosamund.

Tristam Bolling was also in the "War of the Roses". He was a man of great courage, and was most loyal to the Lancastrian party, so much so that he appears to have idolized Henry VI. In his behalf he fought alongside his father at Towton, but, being young, escaped further consequences than the disastrous defeat of his party.

He married a second time, to 'Elyne,' as mentioned in his will. Some say this marriage produced his only son Edward, but its just here say and there’s no real clear evidence because we haven’t found Edwards birth record that clears up this confusion that Beatrix Calverley isn’t his mother because no one understands why he gave most of his estates to his daughter Roseamund,so they assume he is a son from a different mother.

He died at Chellow, near Manningham, on May 30, 1502, leaving his daughter Rosamund an heiress. She had married Sir Richard Tempest, of Bracewell. He deeded Bolling Hall to his daughter Rosamund and deeded Chellows to his son Edward. "Bowling Hall" was owned by Bolling family members for 172 years. The estates of Tristram Bolling comprised the manors of Bolling and Thornton, and lands in Little Bolling, Bradford, Clayton, Allerton, Wilsden, Hainworth, Horton, and Denholme. He left the bulk of is property to his daughter Rosemund, wife of Sir Richard Tempest, although he had a son, Edward, by his second wife, who suceeded him in the Chellow estates, which comprised the manor of Chellow, and a substantial residence.

We give a copy of his will below on account of its quaintness of spelling and the information it contains:--

Child of Tristam Bolling of Chellow and wife Beatrix Calverley:

  • Rosamund Bolling, married Sir Richard Tempest, three known sons

Child of Tristam Bolling of Chellow and wife Elyne:

  • Edward Bolling, 1516-1543, married Magdaline Greene
