Fourth Generation

21. Bridget4 Bunting (Smith3, Jonathan2, William1) was born in Accomack Co., VA about 1739. Bridget died after 1770.

She married John Bull about 1757. In "The Buntings of Jenkins Bridge," Mrs. Carey shows that Bridget married a Bull. In "Early Buntings of the Eastern Shore," she shows this to be John Bunting: The administration of the estate of John Bull was December 30, 1788, Accomack Co. and powers given to Bridget Bull. It should be noted that John Cropper was security, as he was to many of the Bunting estates of the descendants of Smith Bunting. (Stratton Nottingham, Wills & Administrations of Accomack Co., p. 370) This would be John Bull, son of John & Arcadia Bull, who left their 175A property to John Bull d. 1788.

The will of Bridget's brother, George, in 1832, names his Bull nephews Custis, Southey and George and the children of James Bull of Bagwell.

Whitelaw shows that Carter John Bull, Constable and Deputy-Sheriff was a son of John. (A89 & A90, Ralph Whitelaw, Virginia's Eastern Shore, p. 989-991)

The will of a Richard Bull was dated June 19, 1796 and probated June 26, 1797, Accomack Co. He named his wife, Bridget and his children: Molly, Betsey, Sally, Teackle, Tobias, Polly Bayly, Richard (under age) and grandaughters Kitty Bonwill and Nancy Bloxom. Dr. William Burton believes this is Bridget Bunting's husband. (Stratton Nottingham, Wills & Administrations of Accomack Co., p. 447) Richard inherited land at A70 from his father, Benjamin, which had been purchased by Tobias Bull in 1734. (Ralph Whitelaw, Virginia's Eastern Shore, p. 893-4)

Bridget Bunting and John Bull had the following children:

child + 78 i. Bagwell5 Bull.

child + 79 ii. Custis Bull.

child 80 iii. George Bull.
