13 Oct 2004: I have posted a reply to a number of emails received over the last two days from Margaret Lynnes. Click here to view my message.
This is a pedigree of all the Bulmers in my Ancestry. They are principally from York from 1900 back to about 1690. Before then, they start to branch out in to the County of Yorkshire as a whole. One line of descendants moves over to Rothwell, and there is quite a descendancy over that way.The only possible link which I would like some more proof on is regarding Thomas Bulmer Born 1640, and whether he is truly the Father of Thomas Bulmer who was born 1669 in Oswaldkirk. There is some proof apparently out there, but I have yet to receive a copy of it. So trusting that source, I have put this small tree together, so that people can email me and help me fill in the generations.
Assuming the link between the two Thomas Bulmers is correct, then ultimately the Bulmer family or rather some of the line that marry into the Bulmer family end up descending from the Kings and Queens of England & Scotland, and hence into Europe as well. I have not put all of these on, simply because there is not much information past 1100 or so, other than a name of a King. Siblings are not well recorded this far back, and wives are rarely mentioned, so I have left them off this tree. There are plenty of other people who have added this part of royalty onto their sites, but I have chosen not too, as that would distract me from trying to sort out the accuracy of the Bulmer line, which is my principle desire in this part of my family.
3 May 2004: I have found an interesting link about the nationwide distribution of the Bulmer name at the time the 1881 Census was taken. Click here to view it. There are quite a few other surnames included in the site, just click on the home page button to find out more.
19 Sep 2002: This is a more up to date file than what has been on this site recently. It now includes more details on the Layng family, there are about 100 descendants of William Wright Layng now added. :)

Below are links to wills that I have transcribed which relate to some of the Bulmers found within this Pedigree. THere are a lot of these relations who have wills but I have not got a copy of them, but when I have an opportunity to get hold of a copy, or transcribe a will myself, I will add them to this pedigree.
Andrew Bulmer Died 26 Aug 1883 at York
This is the will of Andrew Bulmer who was born in York in 1812, the son of Andrew Bulmer and Elizabeth Miller, and died in York 26 Aug 1883. Andrew along with his wife and sons ran a Brick and Tile making business based in Layerthorpe, York, and then later in Haxby just a few miles north of York.

This is the Will of Francis Bulmer Snr He was Born 1746 in York, and died in April 1835. He is the great uncle of the above Andrew Bulmer, and Brother of Samuel Bulmer below.
This is the Will of Samuel Bulmer, Brass Founder and Caster of Walmgate, York. He was born about 1730 if his age at death is correct (74 years in 1804) though I have never come across a Christening for him. His parents married in 1735, so I am stuck on this point. He is the Grandfather of Andrew Bulmer, Brick and Tile Maker, of York, and the Brother of Francis Bulmer above. Samuel is my 6th Great Grandfather
