William Bolton was born in Ipswich on 26 Dec 1777 and died in Cossey, Norfolk on 16 Dec 1830. He served in the Royal Navy.
Son of the Rev. William Bolton.
"Sir William Bolton was tall, erect, and graceful in his person, fair in his complexion, and handsome in his features, with a classic forehead, a fine Roman nose, and a full blue eye, which was exceedingly quick and intelligent. To see him, was to see a gentleman in mind and manner as well as figure. Such is a faint outline of the person of him, who was generally reckoned, when in his prime, one of the handsomest officers in the navy." (United Service Journal)
