Genealogy or Bloodline
|Pierre de Courci,
probably born c. 75 BL (which would make him about 60 years of age if he
stayed all 15 years of the voyage in cold sleep), cook
(chef) and administrator of the mass catering at Landing, founder of the
Boll (later called South(ern) Boll) settlement (later called Hold),
probably died during the First Pass (8-58).
Married Emily Boll, born Altair [CoP-RR/215] c. 75 BL, governor of First Centauri, co-leader of the Pern Expedition and the Pern colony together with Admiral Paul Benden, died probably Fort Hold 16 (the fever year). Widow of N.N., died probably on Altair, prior to the Pern Expedition.
Though in The
Chronicles of Pern: First Fall Emily Boll is mentioned as "Governor
Emily Boll of Altair" other sources clearly indicate she had been
governor of First Centauri. I have therefore assumed that Emily originally
came from, and was born on Altair and later became governor of First
Emily was a widow when she came to Pern. She came alone, and in Dragonsdawn
it is written that none of her children, all adults, had wished
to accompany her on her one-way journey [DD].
|First Interval/Second Pass|
|Azury of Boll, born
probably Southern Boll Hold between 200 and 220, Lord
Holder of Southern Boll Hold, died probably Southern Boll Hold at the end of the
Second Pass or during the beginning of the Second Interval.
Married N.N., Lady Holder of Southern Boll Hold, born probably c. 210, probably died Southern Boll sometime during the Second Pass.
Azury's name is misprinted as Azurry in
the Red Star Rising character list [RSR/character list]. The name of his spouse remains unknown, as are the names of his children.
Not much information can be gleaned from the scanty references to his
person in Red Star Rising/Dragonseye. If we would assume his wife's name is
not mentioned because he is not married at the time, he would have
probably been born around 238. For indefinable reasons, however, this
seems not likely, so I have assumed (arbitrarily) that Lord Azury was a
full grown, married man at the time of the end of the First Interval. This
means he will probably have been born during the first two decades of the
third century, which makes him between 38 and 58 Turns of age at the start of
the Second Pass. This also means that he probably died
during that Pass, although it's possible that he survived the Second Pass
in case he was born nearer 220 than 200.
|Sixth Pass/Sixth Interval|
|Ratoshigan of Boll,
born probably Southern Boll Hold between 1470 and 1490, Lord
Holder of Southern Boll Hold, died probably Southern Boll Hold during the
early decades of the Sixth Interval.
Married: N.N., Lady Holder of Southern Boll Hold, born probably c. 1490.
Ratoshigan was a thin man with a long thin, bony face (pinched nostrils
above a thin, pinch-lipped mouth and hard small eyes in dry sockets) and
had an overbearing manner [Mor/4:59]. Masterhealer Capiam observed that
"The Lord Holder looked considerably more unwell than the men
dying in the infirmary beds" [Mor/4:59]. This leads me to believe
that Lord Ratoshigan was rather well advanced in Turns at the outbreak of
the Great Plague in 1541 and I subsequently would place his Turn of birth somewhere between
1470 and 1490. He probably
survived the plague, since there is no indication in Moreta
to assume he didn't, and must have died during the early decades of the
|Second Long Interval (Eight Interval)/Ninth Pass|
Lord Holder of Southern Boll Hold, probably born Southern Boll Hold c.
2423, probably died Southern Boll Hold c. 2490.
Married 1st probably c. 2453 N.N., Lady Holder of Southern Boll Hold, born c. 2430.
Married 2nd (or had an extra-marital relationship with) N.N., possibly Lady Holder of Southern Boll Hold.
|Children out of the first marriage (known):|
|1||Sangel, born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2455, follows J-11.|
|2||N.N. (son or daughter), born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2460, follows J-12.|
(a daughter), born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2460.
Since Warlow is mentioned as a son of Lord Sangel youngest sister there must have been at least one other (older) sister.
|4||N.N. (a daughter), probably born Southern Boll Hold c. 2465, follows J-14.|
|Children out of the second marriage or relationship (known):|
born probably Southern Boll Hold, died on the southern continent (probably
somewhere in Southern Hold) prior to 2539 [SoP].
Hillegel went south, probably achieve a Hold of his own there, possibly under Toric, who remarks at the Telgar Council meeting of 2539: "He thought he'd go south (...) I heard he went down one of the rivers and never a word since" [SoP/379]. Since at the same meeting Masterharper Sebell says that it was the Harper Hall's duty to check for living, male relatives but that none were found except Vormital and Warlow, we must assume that Hillegel died prior to 2539 (Aivas Adjusted Turn 2553) [SoP].
|Sangel of Boll, Lord
Holder of Southern Boll Hold (prior to 2495-2539), born
probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2455, died probably Southern Boll Hold during the
last two decades of the Ninth Pass (certainly after 2539 (Aivas Adjusted
Married probably c. 2475 Marella, born c. 2455, Lady Holder of Southern Boll Hold [RoP/prologue:8-9], died probably Southern Boll Hold during the last two decades of the Ninth Pass.
Sangel was already a grandfather when Menolly entered the Harper
Hall, where his granddaughter Pona was studying at the time (2515).
Although this fact does not give too much information about Lord Sangel's
age we can safely assume he was not a young man anymore. When we assume
Pona was about fifteen Turns of age when she stayed at the Harper Hall, a
marriage age of about twenty Turns is assumed, and if Pona's father or
mother was one of the elder children, Sangel must have been born about 60
Turns prior to Menolly starting her studies at Harper Hall, which places
his Turn of birth around 2455 and makes him about the same age as
|Children (known, probably more sons who all died prior to 2539):|
|1||N.N., born probably South(ern) Boll c. 2477, follows J-111.|
|2||N.N., born c. 2480, follows J-112.|
(son or daughter), born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2460, died prior to
Married c. 2485 N.N.
|1||N.N. (son or daughter), born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2487, follows J-121.|
born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2465, Lord Sangel's youngest sister
Married c. 2490 N.N., born c. 2460.
|Children (known, probably more but if male they died prior to 2539):|
|1||Warlow, born c. 2492, follows J-141.|
(son), probably born Southern Boll Hold c. 2477, possibly heir and prospective
Lord Holder of Southern Boll Hold, died
prior to 2539 (possibly of a plague).
Married c. 2505 N.N.
|Children (known, probably more):|
Lady Holder of South Boll Hold (2539-?), born c. 2507 (after 2505
since she is younger than Lord Jaxom) [SoP].
It seems reasonable to assume that Janissian was still unmarried by the time she was invested as the new Lady Holder of Southern Boll Hold (even though she was about 32 Turns old at the time) since no marriage or husband is mentioned in The Skies of Pern.
born c. 2480, probably a daughter or a son who died of the plague.
Married c. 1500 N.N., born c. 2480.
The names of Pona's parents are unknown, but the fact that she is a granddaughter of Lord Sangel of Boll is clearly mentioned in Dragonsinger and is reason enough to include her and her parents into the Boll Bloodline [H2]. It is unknown whether Lord Sangel is Pona's maternal or paternal grandfather so she could be a child of either a son or daughter of Lord Sangel.
|1||Pona, born c. 2500, student at the Harper Hall, was sent home in 2515. I have assumed that Pona was about the same age as Menolly.|
(son or daughter), born probably Southern Boll Hold c. 2487.
Married c. 2500 N.N.
|Children (known, probably more but not male):|
probably born c. 2502, a Holder somewhere in Southern Boll Hold, died
after 2539 [SoP/379].
Vormital is mentioned to be a great-nephew of Lord Sangel. A great-nephew is the same as a grand-nephew and is a child of one's nephew or niece [SoP/379]. Lord Groghe of Fort Hold has heard Lord Sangel say that Vormital was a fool and "couldn't hold a cup without help". On top of that N'ton says that Vormital, when approached by the Weyr to help evacuate the vulnerable coast (of Southern Boll) because of the coming Flood, said that it was Sangel's problem, not his, which attitude made him an unlikely candidate for the Lord Holdership of Southern Boll [SoP/379].
born c. 2492, a small farmholder (probably somewhere in Southern Boll
Hold), died after 2539 [SoP/379].
Married c. 2515 N.N.
Warlow, mentioned as a son of Lord Sangel's youngest sister, was not seriously considered as a candidate for the Lord Holdership of Southern Boll Hold because he hadn't put himself forward to assume it, despite the fact that three of his sons were serving Lady Marella and the Hold in minor capacities. Beside that it might have been important that Warlow was the son of a sister of Lord Sangel and not a brother [SoP/379].
|Children (known, correct order unknown, possibly also some daughters):|
|1||N.N. (son), born c. 2515, served Lady Marella in a minor capacity [SoP/379].|
|2||N.N. (son), born c. 2517, served Lady Marella in a minor capacity [SoP/379].|
|3||N.N. (son), born c. 2519, served Lady Marella in a minor capacity [SoP/379].|
|4||N.N. (son), born c. 2520 [SoP/379].|
|5||N.N. (son), born c. 2522 [SoP/379].|
