I think (expect/hope) that the names Bulkley and Bulkeley are
On my website is a William Bulkeley, of Cheadle, married to Ellen Griffith,
parents of Rowland born in 1462.
These details come from Gerald Paget's book on the ancestors and relatives
of HRH the Prince of Wales.
OT. Strangely I even found Bulkley in The Netherlands, a Robert Ward Bulkley
(presumably from either Great Britain or USA)
who married a Dutch lady, Marie Catharine Bekking, and they had a daughter
Elisabeth Henrietta born in 1857.
In the USA is a Elizabeth Bulkley married to Rev. Joseph Emerson, their son
Edward Emerson born in 1670
this comes from Waldo Lincoln's "Genealogy of the Waldo Family".
In one Bulkeley family the earliest one is Robert Bulkeley born in 1218,
married Jane Butler. They are ancestors of Royal Gateway Rev. Peter
Bulkeley, from county Bedford, England, he went to Massachusetts. This Peter
is a descendant of Llewellyn Fawr, Prince of Wales; Henry II, King of
England; William the Conqueror, Charlemagne and many more. A fascinating
descendant (to me at least) is Dr. Samuel Prescott who finished the ride of
Paul Revere; more are Jay Gould who was filthy rich; George Herbert Bush,
George Walker Bush; .
In England there was Thomas Bulkeley, 1st Viscount Bulkeley of Cashel, and
his granddaughter Anne Bulkeley married James FitzJames, Duke of Berwick, a
famous general and son of James II, King of England.
I am sure there is a lot more to be found.
With best wishes
