    Notes 


    • Memorials to two of Edward's grandsons, Edward Bulstrode, who was buried at Upper Deal church in Kent in 1718, and his brother, Whitelocke Bulstrode (not to be confused with cousin Bulstrode Whitelocke), who was buried in the Hounslow Priory chapel in Middlesex in 1724, each record that their grandfather was Edward Bulstrode of Soley End, near Astley in Co. Warwick, also of the Inner Temple, London, Esquire, sometime Chief Justice of North Wales. Soley End or Sole End, as it is now known, was a hamlet mentioned in the Doomsday Book, but is now represented only by the ancient Sole End Farm and a large house nearby, called Cow Lees.

      According to Wood's " Atheniae Oxienses " , 1632-95, Edward Bulstrode in the time of the grand rebellion, siding with the Presbyterians, and taking the covenant, was, by the endeavours of his nephew Bulstrode Whitelocke, a leading man in the long parliament, and a favourite of Oliver, made one of the justices of North Wales. Bulstrode Whitelocke records that, on 21st January 1646, I attended this committee and procured them to name my uncle Mr. Edward Bulstrode, a reader in the Inner Temple, to be a judge in Wales for which he was a fit and learned person. Edward was so appointed on 15th June 1649, the year of Charles I's execution.
      ********************************************************************** **** ********
      Edward was the author of: " A Golden Chain: or a Miscellany of Divers Sentences of the Sacred Scriptures, and of other Authors, collected and linked together for the Soul's Comfort " , 1657, and of " Reports of divers Resolutions and Judgments " , in three parts, 1657, 1658, 1659. Thomas Fuller's " History of the Worthies of England " , under " Writers on the Law " , records that:

      Edward Bulstrode, Esq., (born in this county [Bucks.] bred in the studies of our municipal laws in the Inner Temple and his Highness's justice in North Wales) hath written a book of divers resolutions and judgments, with the reasons and causes thereof given in the Court of the King's Bench in the reign of King James and King Charles, and is lately deceased.
      In 1712, Edward was referred to as a very learned Lawyer as appears by his book of Reports, a Work of great esteem to this Day.
