Does anyone know anything about Frank S Bolt who was born about 1858? He lived in Westbury on Trym at the time of the census in 1881 and 1891 and was described as a 'Manchester Warehouseman' employing 4 hands.In 1901 he had moved to Keynsham. Where was this warehouse? My great grandfather Job Frederick Biggs, who lived in Cheltenham, was a commercial traveller in 'Manchester Goods' and was related to Frank Bolt by marriage, and I am trying to find out more about his life as a travelling salesman.

Can anyone shed any light on Evans and Biggs please? My great grandfathers half brother James A. Biggs may have been part of this firm, possibly the co-owner. I know they were operating in Bristol around the middle of the nineteenth century somewhere in the centre of Bristol. Evans and Biggs could have been cousins.
