The children of [Rev.] Peter Bulkeley and Jane are: seven sons: [Rev.] Edward, Thomas, Nathaniel, [Rev.] John, Joseph, Daniel, and Jabez.

Their two daughters were both named Mary.

William Bulkeley-79 and William Bulkeley-257 look like fictitious persons: the only sources they list are blank Ancestry trees.

In Royal Ancestors Vol II page 10 pub. 2013 Richardsons' data is the same as in 2011.

Both Williams need to be merged away.
