Where did this Bullen pedigree come from?
« on: Sunday 21 November 21 18:57 GMT (UK) »
Hello again,
My question this time relates to my recent post
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=855495.0

A book called 'The three Dorset captains at Trafalgar" (https://archive.org/details/threedorsetcapta00broa/page/n27/mode/2up)  provides an appendix with the supposed pedigree of the Bullen family and the descent of Admiral Charles Bullen.
Can anyone guess, surmise or actually discover what the source of this pedigree might be? I've checked it is right, though incomplete, but my main question is "who is William Bullen of Cathanger, Fivehead, Somerset?

In the preface is this para,

So perhaps the authors researched it themselves in the PRs and had information from Colonel Bullen

Side tracked to a friendís very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)

Thank you mckha489 - I must have missed that info. in the preface. I suppose Colonel Bullen (aged about 65 when the book was written) may perfectly well have given/known all this family information.
