- I have come across a number of members of the Bullen family in Guernsey - but have not been able to tie up any of these loose ends into a coherent family.
- An E Bullen was a signatory to the 1820 letter to the Privy Council in support of the construction of a new market building, but there was no sign of him by 1826, when the earliest surviving trade directory was compiled.
- Nor have I been able to identify where the family originated - although there is an IGI entry which suggests that Anne Bullen and Joshua Lambert were from Hazelbury Bryan in Dorset.
E BULLEN m ?
- Anne BULLEN (1794 - ?) married Joshua LAMBERT (1790 - ?)
- Elizabeth BULLEN (1801 - ?) married Philip MALE
- Jane BULLEN (1810 - ?) - female servant in the household of William KENNELL
(people in bold were butchers)
Earliest Mention in Guernsey
- In 1820, E Bullen was one of 33 Guernsey butchers who signed a petition to the Privy Council, urging them to approve the construction of the new market building.
