1. HENRY BULLMAN1MINER died 1359 in Mendippi Hills, Somersetshire, England.
Notes Henry Bullman, a miner by trade, residing at Mendippi Hills, Somersetshire, England, equipped 100 men with battle axes and other implements of warfare and tendered them to King Edward the III on the fourth expedition against France in the year 1346. This was the expedition in which Edward the Black Prince accompanied him. For this and other acts of bravery he was knighted Miner as a surname with a coat armorial. The King's secretary complimented him for his loyalty in the following words : "The ocean, though great rivers pay him tribute, disdains not also to receive the lesser of loyal brooks which by one only urn (pour) themselves into its bosom." Thus it will seem that he was surnamed Miner with the proud title of Sir. He died at Mendippi Hills, Somersetshire, England, in the year 1359.
