    Notes:

    From Wikipedia (accessed 22 May 2020):

    Gershom Bulkeley was an early graduate of Harvard University, receiving his bachelor's degree in 1655 and possibly his master's degree in 1658. After receiving his master's degree he might have married Sarah Chauncy, daughter of then Harvard President, Charles Chauncy. In 1661 became the minister of the Congregational church in New London, CT, where he served for roughly 5 years. He then became minister of the Congregational church in the town of Wethersfield, Connecticut where he served until 1677. He left the ministry and practiced as a physician in Glastonbury, CT.

    When the Salem Witch Trials spread from Massachusetts to Connecticut in the autumn of 1692, he expressed considerable scepticism about the evidence, saying that he had heard nothing of any weight to convince him that anyone was guilty of witchcraft. In particular he argued that Marcy Disborough, one of the only two women accused in Connecticut who actually stood trial for witchcraft, was the victim of the malice of her neighbours. Mercy was founded guilty and sentenced to death, but received a reprieve. She was set free and died some time after 1709.

    Gershom married Sarah Chauncy on 6 Oct 1659 in Concord, Middlesex, Massachusetts. Sarah was born on 13 Jun 1631 in Ware, Hertfordshire, England; died on 3 Jun 1699 in Wethersfield, Hartford, Connecticut. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    From The Bulkeley Genealogy by Donald Lines Jacobus (1933):

    (Rev.) EDWARD BULKELEY,D.D., second son of Thomas Bulkeley of Woore, Shropshire, by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Randall Grosvenor, was born not far from 1540. He matriculated pensioner from St. John's College, Cambridge, Michaelmas, 1555; Scholar, 1555; B.A., 1559/60; M.A., 1563; B.D., 1569; D.D.. 1578; Fellow, 1560. He obtained the rectorship of Odell in Bedfordshire, probably in 1571. He "compounded" for the living at Odell, 6 Mar. 1571/2, as is shown by the Bishops' Certificates of the Diocese of Canterbury. This means that he then paid to his superior his first year's salary, as was then the established practice in the English Church. [...]

    It is very difficult to learn much of the personal history of a minister who lived in the sixteenth century and who, by the very nature of his calling, did not figure in the political annals of his generation. He was Prebend of Chester, 1574; of Westminster, 1583; of Lichfield, 1594; and was Vicar of St. Mary, Shrewsbury, 1578-82. We know that he was one of the commissioners appointed by the Bishop of Lincoln in 1608 for the 'Levye of Armour' in Bedfordshire among the clergy.

    We owe to the late Col. C. E. Banks the following interesting item, from Shrewsbury Corporation Record, Burgess Roll, 1580: Edward Bulkeley of Shrewsbury, professor of theology, son of Thomas, admitted burges and has issue: Nathaniel, aged 6; Mary, aged 13; Frances, aged 12; Judith, aged 10; Martha, aged 8; Deborah, aged 5; Dorcas, aged 3; Elizabeth, aged 1. [...]

    Dr. Bulkeley was a moderate Puritan; he resigned his pastorate in 1609, probably because of increasing age, and died at Odell early in Jan. 1620/1. His burial on 5 Jan. 1620/1 was entered in the Odell registers by his son Peter, who had succeeded him as Rector.

  3. 10.  Richard Chetwode was born about 1560 in of Warkworth, Northamptonshire, England (son of Richard Chetwode and Agnes Wodhull); died before 21 May 1635; was buried on 21 May 1635 in Temple Church, London, England.

    Notes:

    Sheriff of Northamptonshire, 1597-98. Knighted in 1603. Member of the Inner Temple. His first wife was Jane Drury, daughter and co-heiress of William Drury (also Drewerie), sometime Deputy Lieutenant of Ireland, by Margery Wentworth, daughter of Thomas Wentworth, 1st Lord Wentworth, Lord Chamberlain of the Household to Edward VI. She was living in 1629.

    "Through his mother, Richard Chetwode inherited her manors and estates of Bekebrok, Dunstewe, Somerton and Banbury, co. Oxford; Chetwode and Lampert, co. Bucks; Durnford, co. Wilts; Warkworth, Middleton, Overthorp, Astrup, Croughton, Sutton and Pateshull, co. Northants; and Wodhull, Langford and Hockliffe, co. Bedford. The manors of Wodhull, Langford and Pateshull had been held in demesne by Walter the Fleming in 1086 and had descended with the barony of Wodhull in the same family for 500 years. Richard Chetwode was later knighted and during the reign of King James I, being in possession of the manor and castle of Odell (Wodhull), petitioned for a writ of summons to Parliament as Baron de Wahull, but neither he nor his descendants were successful in this claim." ["The Barons of Wodhull," citation details below]

    "In 1613 [Richard Chetwode] presented a petition to King James I, claiming the ancient barony in fee of Wahull [Wodhull], as being heir lineal and sole of his several ancestors who had been summoned to attend, and had attended, the king as barons. The claim was allowed to drag, and was put forward again by his fourth descendant, Knightley Chetwood, in 1739 ; by his sixth descendant, Jonathan Chetwood, in 1831 ; and by his eighth descendant, Constantia Elizabeth (Chetwood) Aiken (died 1892) in 1890. Decision was finally rendered against her son, John Chetwood Chetwood-Aiken, on technical grounds, the descent being recognized as valid." [Donald Lines Jacobus, citation details below]
