Ackworth Baptisms Ann Boulby d/o George & Elizabeth Boulby of Moor
carved mother's headstone (wrong date on it)
There is a baptism 2 June 1790 at Ebenezer St. Baptist which could be George
16 years of age as Baptist are christened as adults.
George carved a sundial that contained a regular geometrical solid with 20 faces.
Each face is an equilateral triangle marked with the name of the city and the
hours of the day. Because of the shape of the stone, each of the twenty sun-dials
needed different time markings. The ten pairs of faces show the time at cities
around the world in time zones 36 degrees of longitude apart. When the stone
was set on its pedestal and aligned with a compass it remained only to fit the
20 bronze gnomons which cast the shadows to enable the sundials to function.
Carved deeply on one of the faces is "G. Boulby Fect. 18 3" The whole
work stands about seven feet high.
George 40 married Elizabeth Durrans 27 (who was his brother Thomas' step-daughter).
George died in Leeds but is buried at Ackworth. At the time he was listed in
Baines Directory for Leeds as ''Geo Boulby, sundial manufacturer, Top of St.
Peter's Square''. There are other sundials carved by George. An article for
