He became abbot of the abbey of St Peter at Gloucester in 1437. Boulers was a shrewd man of affairs and was sent on an embassy to Rome in 1449, when the convent allowed him £400 for his expenses. In 1450, he was seized by Richard Plantagenet, 3rd Duke of York, and imprisoned for a time in Ludlow Castle. In the same year, Boulers was appointed to the See of Hereford on 14 August 1450 and consecrated on 14 February 1451. He was translated to the See of Coventry and Lichfield on 7 February 1453.
