Hello to Westa Talton Morris-
Yes, my relations are with the Bulls Family of Johnston Co., NC. It has been said that if you meet someone of the surname Bulls in the U.S., then you are most likely related.
While "Bull" is a common name of English descent, "Bulls" is rare and more distinct.
I will be doing a little more research in January.
We are related to Henry Bulls, who was born approx.
1715-20, probably in Southampton, VA.
He is likely the son of William or Jesse Bull of Southampton Co., VA, although I do not have the verified proof to certify this.
see this webpage for this information:http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&...
He married Mary Moore (Bulls).
On Sept. 26th, 1766, Henry Bulls was granted land along the
Bawdy and Mockason Swamps, adjacent to the Neuse River, Johnston Co., NC. (NC Land Grant Book 17, p.324)
Based upon his will, it can be said that Henry Bulls wished to create a large Plantation(s) for his family and sons.
This wish would not last past the next generation.
All information for Henry Bulls comes from his will and land grants/deeds.
On August 23rd, 1768, Henry deeded land, with affection, to his oldest son, Henry Jr., who was born in 1747.
I have a list of all of Henry's children in Johnston Co., NC and their families, but not with me presently.
I am related through Barnabas Bulls, Henry and Mary's son born 1750, Johnston Co., NC
All of the basic research based upon Henry Bulls' will is available on-http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/
