John Bullard's first wife, Magdalene Martyn,[1] was born on January 29, 1607 at Barnham, Suffolk, England. Her parents were John Martyn and, probably, Anne Hosmer.[2]

Magdalene married John Bullard, probably about 1630 in England (based on the birth of their first child in 1632).

Magdalene died 29 Nov 1661 at Medfield, Norfolk, Massachusetts[3][4]

John married Ellen Dickerman as his second wife.

  1. 1.0 1.1 Since the publication of Bullards and Allied Families, there has been confusion about Magdalene's maiden name. A pedigree chart in that book juxtaposed her first name and that of her brother-in-law, George, making it appear that her name was Magdalen George. See further explanation and an image of the chart here:
  2. 2.0 2.1 There is a question as to whether Magdalene's mother was Agnes Wright or Anne Hosmer. Online family histories are about equally divided between the two possibilities. There is evidence that a John Martyn did marry an Agnes Wright about that time, but in another part of England. In the Martyn family of Barnham, the first child was a boy named after his father, John, and the second was a girl named Anne, making it reasonable to suppose that her mother was also named Anne.
