R. Boulware
RE: Boulware genoelgy
Hello Joyce,
Glad to hear from another Boulware. Well, what's been handed down to me, is that some of the first "Boulware's" came over from France c.1698 to South Carolina . The town mentioned to me by an old Baptist preacher was a place called "Long Town". The Boulware's fought along side George Washington in the Revolutionary War and when the Civil War broke out, The Boulware's were predominantly on the side of The Confederacy.
The Boulware's I come from, seem to have stayed in or around Winnsboro, South Carolina, though some are now in North Carolina.
The name itself is French and means..."from the Birch Tree" or "Stong as a Birch Tree". Apparently, Boulois (spelling?), means Birch in French. I have heard different things, but I'm sticking with this and this is what's been handed down to me as the names meaning. The name is pronounced without the RE at the end.
