About Henry Bullock, Jr.


Richard Bullock of Rehoboth, 1644, and Some of His Descendants, by Hon. J. Russell Bullock (1815 - 1899), a handwritten manuscript in the Providence RI Historical Society Library:

"It has been stated that Richard was a son of Henry of Salem, who died there in 1652, but Henry came in 1630 on the ship "Abigail" with his wife, Susan and only children, Henry, Mary and Thomas and in his will, he names only one child, Henry. Of Henry's children none bear the name of Richard. Edward Bullock of Dorchester came from London 1635, had a wife, Elizabeth. His will probated 1656 names only his wife and daughter, Hannah (Johnson). Therefore, no known record exists of Richard's birthplace or of his parentage, or of the vessel in which he came over."


From “The Driver Family: A Genealogical Memoir of the Descendants of Robert and ...” Page 293. GoogleBooks

Alice Flint married first Henry Bullock, Jr., son of Henry Bullock, the emigrant, and first wife Susan, who came with his parents, when eight years old, in 1635, from the county of Essex, Eng., in the ship "Abigail," accompanied by his sister Mary, aged six, and his brother Thomas, aged two, all settling at first in Charlestown, New England. In 1638 they all removed to Salem, where in 1643 his father received a grant of land; and Oct. 13, 1649, one of forty acres; and still another Dec. 2, 1663 (Savage). His mother died N ov. 2, 1644, aged fifty-one years, and his father married second, date not known, Elizabeth . He made his will Dec. 21, 1668, proved June 29, 1664, in which he names "wife Elizabeth ex'x; son Thomas ; grandson John, son of my son Henry, dec'd; William Flint & Nath'l Felton, overseers." He resided in what was then called Northfields, Salem, Mass., near Henry Cook, Sr. His inventory was £99 :15s. Dec. 14, 1657, Henry Cook having bought the land formerly in possession of Henry Bullock, Jr., dec'd, he agrees with Henry Bullock to maintain the partition fence belonging to the land purchased of Alice, late wife of said Henry Bullock, Jr., dec'd, said Bullock also agreeing to take care of his part of said fence (Essex Co. Deeds, Vol. II. p. 66). Aug. 6, 1656, after the death of Henry Bullock, Jr., his widow, Alice, with the consent of her father, William Flint, for £20, to be paid yearly, sold Henry Cook her dwelling-house, out-houses, and about twenty acres of land; the said house "standing neere unto the Generale fence on the North Neck, having Henry Bullock on the one side, and \Vm Robinson on the other side running thence to Jno. Southwick, also all the land lying in Northfield formerly Henry Bullock Jr's, dec'd, Also 6 acres in the broad meadow near John Hathorne's old house." — Essex Co. Deeds, Vol. I. p. 39.

From the above statement it is reasonable to suppose that Mrs. Alice Bullock was preparing for her second marriage, which event took place in 1656-7, when she was married to John Pickering, styled Lieutenant, son of John and Elizabeth Pickering, who was born in Salem, Mass., in 1637, and died there May 5, 1694.

His father came from England in 1630, and from 1634 to 1637 lived in Ipswich, Mass., when he removed to Salem, remaining there till his death in 1657. Lieut. John Pickering built, on Broad Street, Salem, Mass., a large house of red brick and oak, which after more than two hundred years still stands {'1886'), owned and occupied by the Pickering famiIy

Alice (Flint) (Bullock) Pickering in 1652 was presented at court for wearing a silk hood, but proving that she was worth £200, was acquitted (Essex Inst. Hist. Collect., Vol. II. p. 207), — the law against which is to be found under Henry Elias Jenks, Driver Family, No. 17.
