    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 7 Jul 1603, Barkham, Berkshire, England

    Notes:

    A probable "gateway ancestor" of TWK. The issue is whether the Elizabeth who married Augustine Clement was a sister of the immigrant Edward Bullock. Genealogist Leslie Mahler has been arguing the case for this in a variety of places, for instance noting on SGM that "There are a number of records connecting Augustine Clement & Edward Bullock to each other. They originated in neighboring parishes, one calls the other 'brother' etc."

    Robert Charles Anderson's sketch of Edward Bullock in volume 1 of The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, p. 476, notes that the list of debts attached to the end of Edward Bullock's will mentions "brother Clemens," of which Anderson remarks, "probably referring to Augustine Clement as a brother in the church." But in volume 2 of the same Great Migration series, in the sketch of Augustine Clement (p. 101), Anderson seems much closer to being convinced that Clement's wife Elizabeth was a sister of Edward Bullock:
    On 26 July 1649, "Elisabeth Clements testified on oath that Edw[ard] Bullock of Dorchester is the son of Mr. W[illia]m Bullock late of Barkham in Berkeshirre" [Aspinwall 227]. In his will of 25 July 1649, "Edward Bullock of Dorchester" appointed Augustine Clement as one of his overseers, and among the debts owed by his estate was one to "brother Clements" [SPR 1:288-89; GM 2:1:476-77].

    "Elisabeth Clements" of the 1649 deposition was almost certainly the wife of Augustine Clement. In the normal course of events, we might suggest that the reference to "brother Clements" indicated a church relationship, but we have no evidence that Bullock was a member of Dorchester church. Wokingham and Barkham are adjacent parishes in Berkshire. All of this suggests that Augustine Clement had married a sister of Edward Bullock.

    The registers of Barkham, Berkshire, show that the two youngest children of William Bullock, gentleman, were Edward, baptized 6 August 1595, and Elizabeth, baptized 7 July 1603 [Leslie Mahler, private communication]. Although there is a discrepancy between this baptismal date and the age given in 1635 on embarkation by EDWARD BULLOCK {1635, Dorchester} [GM 2:1:476-77], this would appear to be the immigrant, and the sister Elizabeth baptized in 1603 would be of an appropriate age for the wife of Augustine Clement.
    Neither Edward Bullock nor the wife of Augustine Clement are included among the gateway ancestors in Richardson's 2013 Royal Ancestry, but a line from Edward I to Winston Churchill and to the Bush presidents, a line which presumes that the wife of Augustine Clement was a daughter of William Bullock, is included in Gary Boyd Roberts's 2018 The Royal Descents of 900 Immigrants (citation details below). In the notes to the line, Roberts says that it was "brought to my attention by Leslie Mahler of San Jose, California, and the name of William Bullock's wife was added by Douglas Richardson of Salt Lake City. Clinching proof (or disproof) that Mrs. Elizabeth Clement(s) was a sister of Edward Bullock of Dorchester, Mass., would be welcome."
