Cork, Bulman or Bullman Name Study

The goals of the Cork, Bulman or Bullman Name Study project are:

  1. To find every non-living person with the Bulman or Bullman surname who lived in County Cork, Ireland. and make a wikitree profile for them.
  2. To make a family tree including all Bulman or Bullman who ever lived in County Cork, and connect that tree to the Global family tree on Wikitree.
  3. To find the origins of the Bulman or Bullman of County Cork, likely an English surname, and connect our County Cork Bulman or Bullman families to any earlier Bulman or Bullman in County Cork or where ever they may have lived in Ireland.
  4. To determine if the name is an Anglicized Gaelic name or one borrowed or inherited from their English cousins.
  5. To determine exactly when and why the Bulman or Bullman came to County Cork.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Sharon Troy Centanne. This is my second great grandmother's maiden name Jenny Bulman Connell, who was baptized in Annakissy parish, Cork) , so I am especially interested in Bulman or Bullman Family research! I am concentrating on the Bulman or Bullman family from Ireland, as this is the birthplace of my Irish great-grandmother Jenny Bulman or Bullman, in Annakissy near Rathcormac and Fermoy.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Add Bulman or Bullman Family members from the 1901 and 1911 Census of Ireland
  • Add Bulman or Bullman Family members from Griffith's Valuations, Cancellation Books and Tithe Applotments records
  • Add Bulman or Bullman Family members from the church and cemetery records of Ireland
  • Connect all Bulman or Bullmanl Family members to the global family tree.
  • Add relevant sources
