====

Most internet postings (that go back enough generations) trace our BULLOCK's of Georgia back to Sir Captain Hugh BULLOCK. While there are many different "paths" posted to make that connection, I have selected the work from Melonbel as my framework, which follows the same pedigree published by Worth S. Ray, "Colonial Granville County and Its People", Published by the Author, 1945,

From Melondel's BULLOCK Ancestry Web Sight:

Capt. Hugh Bullock was granted 2550 acres in what became York County, Virginia, in 1634. He moved to Virginia where he lived for a few years, during which time he was appointed to the council of Virginia. By the summer of 1637 he had returned to London where on July 8 he deeded the Virginia property to his son William. Capt. Hugh Bullock and his wife Mary had four sons: William, James, Richard, and Thomas.

There is recorded in York County a deed dated July 8th, 1637, from Hugh Bullock, of London, gentlemen, to his son, William Bullock, of London, gentlemen, conveying his corn-mill, saw-mill, and plantation in Virginia. Hugh Bullock’s wife, Mary is mentioned. In General Court Records, April, 1672, is entry of a suit by Robert Bullock, son and heir of William Bullock, who was son and heir of Hugh Bullock, vs Colonel Peter Jenings, guardian of John Matthews, orphan of Colonel Matthews, deceased, in regard to a parcel of land in Warwick County, containing 5,500 acres. There can hardly be a doubt that William Bullock here mentioned was the person who wrote the well-known tract on Virginia. He states that both his father and himself had owned land here.

Capt. Hugh's plantation on the Back River in York County is now part of Langley Air Force Base.

BIOGRAPHY: REFN: 6502 [Brøderbund WFT Vol. 7, Ed. 1, Tree #3244, Date of Import: Sep 20, 1998], !Notes from the records of York County, VA: "Hugh Bullock, of London, Gent., to Wm. Bullock, of London, Gent., his son. A deed (8 July 1637) for his property in Va. Mary Bullock, wife of Hugh Bullock. Thomas Ballard, cl. cur. (1652?)" Hugh Bullock was a planter, merchant councilor and man of considerable importance. He was the owner of the Ship "Endeavor" in March 29, 1628 (Virginia Colonial Court Records, p.169) Hugh appears in the official records of Virginia as a member of the kings council as early as December 1631, where the records indicate he was a Burgess and Member of the Assembly for the Colony of Virginia from York County (Colonial Virginia Register, p. 32). We do know he was in England in the Spring of 1632, but was back in Virginia on February 8, 1634 for a meeting of the council. Just when he arrived in Virginia is uncertain, but he was an influential man with considerable property in England and Virginia. On March 12, 1634, at James City Virginia, Hugh was granted 2,550 acres of land on the Pocosin, "Southeast of Otter Pond," in York County ( Virginia Land Office, Patent Book 1, 1623-1643, p 158.) By deed dated July 8, 1637, and recorded in York County, Hugh Bullock, Gentleman of London England and his wife Mary conveyed to their son William, his corn mill, saw mill, and plantation in Virginia. He left a will in London dated October 22, 1649, and probated November 2, 1650. From the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. XVIII, No.3, July 1910. Pembroke 168 Hugh Bullocke of London, Gent. All Hallows Barking 72 years of age and dim sighted. I have the half of Dungeonesse lights which I purchased from Sir Francis Howard. The half of which half I sold to Andrew Burrel which half was purchased from him by my son William Bullocke. My son married William Lamply's daughter and purchased William Bin's part in the other half and my son William at his going into Virginia let his part for 1 20 per annum during term of the patent which has 17 years to run. To Mary Bennett, now living in London, 1 4 per annum during the patent. To Ellinor, daughter of my sister Ann Mason, 3 per annum during patent. To Mary Rose, widow, living in Ratcliffe, 40s per annum. To Bernard Smith, my deputy in Custom House, 3 per annum during patent. My estate in Virginia amounting to 100 per annum left me there 10 years past to my sun William and his son Robert. Executors: John Limbry Esq. And Barnard Smith. Overseer: Master of the Trinity House for the time being. To Mary Snow, Wife of Nicholas Snow, 7s yearly; to Elizabeth her sister 7s yearly Witnesses: William Walket, James Turner, Benjamine Sheppard Scr. Proved by Samual Burrell, principal creditor. Notes on will: All Hallows Barking is a parish in London. Also known as All Hallows Barking by the Tower, it was damaged in a fire in 1666 and rebuilt later that century. The Dungeonesse or Dungeness Lights referred to in his will are lighthouses. As best as I can determine the lights were near those of North and South Foreland in the County of Kent, but I have yet to be able to determine their exact locations. There is a reference that the income due the North and South Foreland Lights was often paid in error to the Bullocks. Hugh made frequent trips to England from Virginia to attend to his business affairs. He was present at the meetings of the Council in 1632, 1633, and 1634. In 1637 he was one of the members the king directed should be retained, but Hugh declined due to his age and interest in England, since we know he died in England. Best known arms of Bullock Family Follows: Arms: Argent, a chevron gules, between three bulls heads, or. Crest: Five battle axes, blades sable, staffs, or ribbonned gules. Motto: Nil conscire sibi, meaning "To be conscious of no fault."
