Bullock m. Rawlings in Whissendine
« on: Thursday 30 August 12 08:44 BST (UK) »
Hi

I'm looking for information on the familiy of William Henry Bullock (1813-1874) and of his wife Mary Rawlings (1822-1869). They married in 1845 in Whissendine, Rutland. Their confirmed children are Eleanor Selina and Isabella Florence. But there are hints of other children.

I think that William's parents are Thomas Bullock and Elizabeth Peach, and that Mary's parents are Benjamin and Elizabeth Rawlings. If anyone has more info, that would be great.

Thanks :)

Thanks KGarrad.

However, that household doesn't have my many times great grandmother Eleanor Selina Bullock (1846-1913). Are you able to find her in the 1861 census?

I can't find either Eleanor or Isabella on any census?

That's why I gave you the William Henry, wife Mary that I did find. ;D

Amazing!!! Thank you!

It appears that Samuel Bullock m. Selina Crossley Irwin in 1844. Is anyone able to find their marriage record? Trying to discover who their parents were. I think Selina was the daughter of William and Mary Irwin - but there are quite a lot of them wandering around.

Thanks again KGarrad :)

FamilySearch.org has this christening:

29th April 1816 at Pickwell with Leesthorpe, Leicestershire
Samuel Bullock son of Samuel Plage Bullock and Mary


And 1841 census has:
Reference HO107, Piece 591, Book/Folio 9/4, Page 2
Pickwell with Leesthorpe, Leicestershire

Bullock, Samuel  M  65  Grazier
Bullock, Susan  F  55
Bullock, Samuel jnr  M  25            all born in county

Remember that, for the 1841 census, no relationships are given and adult ages are rounded down to a multiple of 5 years.

I know it's late in the day but I was just reviewing some of the Rutland posts as I have been researching a Bullock family- not yours I dont think.
However I have found Eleanor Selina and Isabella Florence on 1861 cen in Liddington but daughters of Samuel Bullock and wife Selina C. Samuel b 1817 in Pickwell, a Landed Proprietor.
Hope this helps unless you have already found them.
