My Bullard ancestors

Primary Source: "Bullard and Allied Families" by Edgar J. Bullard (1930)

The surname Bullard is of Norman-French origin, tracing back to the 10th century when the Norman, De Boulard or De Bulwarde, was carried into England by the followers of the Conquerer. The early records of the name in England and New England show many ramifications in spelling, and Bullwarde, Bullwer, and Bullard are found to indicate a single individual on the town or parish records. Among the earliest families of the name in England is General Bullwer of Wood Dalling and Haydon Hall, Norfolk, whose son, Sir Edward George Earl Lytton Bullwer, was a brilliant and gifted writer and diplomat, and the father of Bullwer Lytton, who assumed the ancestral name and estates of Lytton, be-coming Baron Lytton, author of prose and poems, under the nom de plume of "Owen Meredith."
