Question from Marilu - Modern use of the Boleyn name

Is the last name Boleyn still in use? On my island Curacao there different people with that last name. Over the years it evolved to Boelyn Bolyn, but they are the same family. Curacao was in the past a British colony. Maybe they are related to Anne Boleyn and her sister.

You will find the name on the website linkedin several times; there are also Boleyns on Facebook and Twitter.

In Lincolnshire we have several Bullens, although it is not a common name.

On Freebmd.org.uk, it shows 31 Boleyn births registered in the UK between 1837 and 1984. So not a common name at all, but it does still exist.
