Bulstrode Family in Isley Walton nr Castle Donington
« on: Friday 15 September 17 15:01 BST (UK) »
Does anybody out there know anything about my Bulstrode ancestors from Isley Walton near Castle
Donington/Kegworth ?  In September 1744 my 5xGGF Benjamin Beavington from Ashby dlZ marries
Sarah Bulstrode in Isley Walton. Her spinster sister Grace is buried in Ashby 1773. In 1801
Sarah's sister-in-law Elizabeth Bulstrode (nee Mynors ?) is living there in the manor house rented from
the Company of Bowyers.  They appear to be wealthy farmers. Are they related to the Buckinghamshire Bulstrodes ? Is Bulstrode Place in Kegworth named after them ? Why ?
Are there any traces of them locally in church or graveyard ?
         Grateful for any info ..... Anthony , Leicester ???

Might be worth Googling Bullstrode family. They were pretty unique being Saxons that kept their lands after the arrival of William the Conquerer. They had been earmarked for a Norman, but impressed William and were allowed to keep them.

Bulstrode Park is at Gerrards Cross, Bucks. Once home to the Dukes of Portland and the infamous Lord Chief Justice Jeffries, the hanging judge. Oddly enough Jeffries was CofE but King James II retained him. Two of his daughters were married in St Mary's, Hedgerley.

Thanks for this -- that much I knew. I'm hoping someone very local to the village/Kegworth
will know more than is available online .... Anthony
