Thank you for visiting my website

This is a family history and also some information about Mersham in Kent

John Bullin (2018)

I am the son of T W Bullin and my side of the Bullin family all come from Kent or the South London area. The earliest relative I can trace is JOHN (or James) BULLIN died in Woolwich about 1792.

On my mother's side, the Swaffer family lived in Kent mainly in the Mersham and Sevington district near Ashford, mostly farming in that area, and at one time occupied Stone Green Hall and The Den in Mersham. Over the years Samuel Swaffer farmed at Gills Farm (1739), Daniel was at Waterbrook Farm Sevington (1827) followed by John (1850), George at Swanton Farm (1840) and Daniel was at Conscience Farm, Mersham until about 1854.


2021 - Where I have lived for the past 57 years

This moated property was in the middle of a 100 acre oak wood. In 1650 records showed its name as Bartlett Hall. It was owned by the Lord of the Manor being a member of the Grimstone family, subsequently to become Earl of Verulam and the ancestors of Lord Lucan.

I shall be pleased to hear from anyone who has any information about my family history or Stone Green Hall and the Den. I have some further details which I can make available.    Please contact me using the Contact Form.
