About William Bull

According to the 2008 Bull Genealogy Line of John page 1 Notes section for William Bull and Sarah Wells, William Bull came to America about 1715, landing in New York.

He was the son of John Bull and Joane Clark or a 2nd unknown wife from Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England. William's grandparent were Peter Bull and Ellenor Unknown, who were residents of Wednesfield, a hamlet two miles east of Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England.

William and Sarah's story is well documented in the original Bull Book published in 1974.

According to "Some Interesting Facts about William Bull and Sarah Wells" publication of the William Bull and Sarah Wells Stone House Association, Inc., he was a stonemason and progenitor of the Bull Family of Orange County, New York.

He was an immigrant to America in 1715 after learning the trade of stonemasonry in Dublin, Ireland.

He is the Builder of "Grey Court" 1716, near Craigville, for Daniel Cromeline, an original owner of the Waywanda Patent.

He was the builder of the stone house circa 1716-18 where his descendants, the Roe Family, have resided since 1827.

He was granted 100 acres for 5 shillings, New York currency, where he built his residence call Hamptonburgh in honor of his birthplace in 1722; now known as The Bull Stone House.

He was granted 2600 acres by King George of England in 1723.

He was granted an additional 500 acres in 1724 where his son Thomas (his 4th child and 2nd son) built Hill-Hold in 1769, now an Orange County museum.

He was the builder of Knox's Headquarters in Vails Gate, NY in 1754 - the oldest building contract known in Orange County is on display there.

He died in 1756 leaving a will proved 19 June 1756 giving "my dear wife Sarah Bull my dwelling house and farm".

He was buried on Bull Burying Hill, now known as the Hamptonburgh Cemetery.

William Bull's stone masonry trade was carried on by some of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who erected many fine stone building in Orange County.
