Founding of Bolton, The

James Bolton and his nephew George erected a grist-mill on the Humber River in 1823 which over the next few years became the centre of a small settlement known as Bolton's Mills. Other industries joined the mills and by 1871, with the arrival of railway service, Bolton was a thriving industrial centre.
