Bull, William
« on: Sunday 26 June 05 10:12 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am looking for information on William Bull, who according to the 1901 census was 29, birth year would be 1873. His birth place is listed as Buckinghamshire, Padbury. Census county - Leicestershire, Parish - Wigston Magna and occupation - railway engine stoker.

If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi,

Are you looking for info after 1901 or before 1901? His family is in the 1881 and 1891 censuses, for example. Let me know if you need details.

Cheers,

Ros

Roz,

Both before 1901 and after if at all possible.
If you have the details from the 1881 and 1891 census' that would be great.  Do you know where I could get more details on the 1901 census?

Thanks

Hi again,

For some reason I couldn't find William Bull in the 1901 census. You can look at it  at www.1901census.nationalarchives.gov.uk (pay to view).

However, here are some more things to go on with:

1891

School Lane, Padbury

Bull, William   abt 1842   Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Head, Farm labourer
Bull, Elizabeth   abt 1849   Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Wife
Bull, William G   abt 1872   Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Son, Farm labourer
Bull, Rose E   abt 1877   Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Daughter
Bull, Albert E L   abt 1880   Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Son
Bull, Lily L H   abt 1882   Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Daughter


1881 census (you can look this up yourself at familysearch.org)

Main Street, Padbury

William Abbott   abt 1811    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Father in Law
Albert E. Bull   abt 1880    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Son
Elizabeth Bull   abt 1849    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Wife
Rose E. Bull   abt 1877    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Daughter
William Bull   abt 1842    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Head
William G. Bull   abt 1872    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Son

The father-in-law a real bonus!

Marriage (freebmd)
March quarter 1869, Buckingham 3a/627
Abbott, Elizabeth
BULL, William

I couldn’t find the Bulls in 1871 or 1861, but here is Elizabeth’s family in 1861:

1861 census

Lower Way, Padbury
William Abbott   abt 1811    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Head, ag lab.
Henry Abbott   abt 1856    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Son
Rosanna Abbott   abt 1852    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Daughter, Pillow case maker

In Buckingham:
William Clark   abt 1841    Buckinghamshire   Head, ag lab.
Eliza Clark   abt 1840    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Wife, lacemaker
Elizabeth Abbott   abt 1849    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Visitor, lacemaker
Mary Abbott   abt 1812    Padbury, Buckinghamshire   Visitor, lacemaker

Mary is probably Elizabeth’s mother.

Cheers,

Ros
