Boleno Marsh, a Clown or Alfred John Tolkien (1834–1867)
An example of a clown from the 19th century
I have found a London clown, Boleno Marsh who was... Alfred John Tolkien, son of George Tolkien and brother of J.R.R. Tolkien's grandfather, John Benjamin Tolkien (a Freemason and Moravian Brother). So exciting is this #TolkienAncestry research!
