  • Notes 
    • Edward (1663– 1705) was Lord of seven Manors and sat as a Member of Parliament for the County of Essex in 1698 and later for the Borough of Colchester in 1703.

      He became Deputy Lieutenant of the County of Essex and High Sheriff of Essex in 1696 and 1703. By marrying Elizabeth, elder daughter of Sir Mark Guyon Kt of Coggeshall, large estates at Coggeshall, Maplestead and Finchingfield were added. Sir Mark was Sheriff of Essex in 1676. After the death of Elizabeth, he married a second time to Mary, the daughter of Sir Josiah Child of Wanstead. Sir Josiah thoroughly opposed the marriage and left his daughter a mere £5 in his will "and no more because she hath married not only without my consent but expressly against my command and contrary to her own repeated promises and lette others learne by her example".

      Through Sir Mark's younger daughter, Rachel, who married Edward's younger brother, John Bullock, Sir Mark's estates at Radwinter and Great Wigborough came into the family and passed by intestacy to Colonel John Bullock.

      Edward's son, Josiah (1697– 1752), attempted to follow his Child grandfather and to make a fortune in trade. He spent most of his life in London – in Highgate and the City – as a Royal Exchange Director and Hambro Merchant. Though a local J.P. and D.L., he neglected his duties at Faulkbourne.

      Note: Wikipedia gives a rather differnt opinion on his relationship with his fathers-in-law.
