    Notes 
    • This assignment,( the son of John and Elizabeth from Packington), is the logical place armed with the purely circumstantial evidence so far collected. The two children found at Bickenhill are the only Bolstridges found there. A substantial number of the marriages and baptisms listed at both Great and Little Packington were because of re-building in adjacent churches at this time. Labour was moving about these areas during this period, 1750 - 1790, no doubt due to the enclosure acts in progress.
      Note that many families in Solihull had ties with and moved between Bickenhill and other adjacent parishes. These parish films are in the process of being re-examined.

      Jame's son Henry married Mary Suckling from Maxstoke, she was the Grandaughter of William Suckling a tenant farmer in Maxstoke at the time Jame's assumed brother John was there. Both William Suckling and John Bolstridge AKA Boastridge were litterate.

      ********************************************************************** ****
      At the time James and Hannah arrived at Ratcliffe Culey, circa 1790, with their 3 eldest children the village was expanding. The process of enclosure had only started in 1767 and a lot of new families settled there in the succeeding 30 years. Some came as small farmers and some as labourers on the new farms carved out of the open field system. The main landlord was the church controlling some 500 acres of glebe. Ratcliffe was a small village and could not support more that 200 - 240 inhabitants and therefore their sons tended to move out of the village on maturity. A Bolstridge presence was maintained in the village however, well into the twentieth century due in no small measure to the availability of non agricultural work nearby at Atherstone and the local coal mines.
