Origins: Sale of the Westfield home and property

Nehemiah's Will | Bull Family Property

By the time that John Partridge Bull was 11 years old in 1742, we can guess that he and his younger brother, two older brothers, and mother moved back to Hatfield with his uncle, Oliver Partridge. The deed recording the sale of the Westfield house in which the Nehemiah Bull family had lived was recorded in 1742 and listed both Oliver and Mrs. Elizabeth Bull (John Partridge Bull's mother) as "both of Hatfield."

If Bulls did indeed live with Oliver Partridge, the full Partridge household then consisted of at least 12 people: Oliver and Elizabeth's mother at age 59 as the oldest member, John Partridge's cousin at age 2 months as the youngest member.


--The property sale is recorded in the Hamden County Land Records Book in Springfield, Massachusetts, book X, pp. 516 - 517.
