The Genealogy Of
 Benjamin Bullock

Welcome to The Genealogy of Benjamin Bullock

    Hannah Danford (abt 1795 – 1826) and Phebe Lewis (abt 1803 – 1849)

Why This Site

Welcome to the Benjamin Bullock genealogy website. After more than twenty years of working on the genealogy of my Bullock family, I decided it was time to publish my findings on a website. The process of tracing your ancestry involves starting from what you know in the present and working your way back through each preceding generation. This research leads us back to the early 1800s and Benjamin Bullock, our earliest known ancestor. Benjamin and his wife, Hannah Danford, came to Noyan, a seigneury near the northern tip of Lake Champlain just south of Montreal along the Richelieu River in the county of Missisquoi. Noyan is aka Christie Manor. After the death of Hannah, Benjamin remarried to Phebe Lewis. This website presents a history of Benjamin Bullock and his descendants.

St. George

St. George Episcopal Church
The earliest church in the Manors which played a big role in the lives of our ancestors.

Purpose Of The Website

The purpose of the website is two-fold.

  1. First, it is intended to share what we know about our family with anyone who might be interested.
  2. We also hope that visitors who may have information about our family will contact us to share their information. Use the Contact Us link on this page to send us any information or to ask any questions you may have.

The website will be updated regularly to reflect any changes. With your help, we can compile a more complete picture of our Bullock family from Benjamin and his descendants down through two centuries to the present.

What Is Benjamin's Full Name?

On a number of sites and in various forums, I have sometimes seen Benjamin referred to as Benjamin John William Bullock. This may turn out to be his name. However, in almost 20 years of research, I have never found any evidence nor seen any source being cited for this conclusion about his name. The only instance of the name being other than Benjamin can be seen On the death record of his son, Henry where his father's name is listed as Ben J. Bullock. Genealogical research is based on drawing conclusions from the evidence gathered. The evidence before us to this date can lead us to only one conclusion: Our earliest ancestor was named simply, Benjamin Bullock.

There have been many conjectures about Benjamin: where he was born, where he came from, where his first children were born. There is no documented evidence to answer any of these. For these and many other questions, until evidence becomes available to allow us to come to well-founded conclusions, they are shown as "unknown" or left blank.

The Bullock Crest Shown On This Site

A coat of arms is granted to an individual and passed down the family line through a male heir. Without being able trace our Bullock ancestry back much further, it is really not possible to determine if our family has a family crest. The coat-of-arms shown on this site are those of Robert Bullock, sheriff for Berkshire and Oxfordshire. They were taken from a column titled Your Family Origin by Reg Willis, Heraldic Artist.

A special thanks to my Aunt Betty Collier (née Bullock), who passed away in 1997, for all her work over many years in getting this research started. My sincere thanks to all of the relatives too numerous to mention who have shared information with me. Carolyn Parent in Stanstead, who is also part of our Bullock family, has been an invaluable resource and colleague in this endeavour. I would also like to acknowledge Enid Reed Elliott from whose book, The Genealogy of the James Owen Bullock Family, much of the information on the James Owen branch was derived. Last, but not least, thank you to my genealogy colleagues, too numerous to list, who reviewed this site for me to correct information and to let me know of any entries which should be reviewed.
