Ann Bull of Cubley, farmer

Ari’s 6x great-grandmother was Ann Bull, who was born in 1799 in Cubley, near Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

We visited the village recently and found lots of Bull family graves.

Ann was the daughter of cousins John and Margaret Bull and was baptised on 3 March 1799 at the church of St Andrew.

She married a farmer, John Bladon, on 2 Jan 1817 at the church in Cubley.

As she was below the age of 21, her father gave consent for the marriage to take place.

I have found three children: Sarah Jane, born in 1829, John (1831–1835), and James, born in 1834. Ann’s husband John died in 1838, and Ann was listed in the 1841 census as a farmer in Yeaveley.

Son James was helpfully included on the next page with a description, as was Walter Ford (male servant), who would go on to become Sarah Jane’s husband:

In December 1842, Ann was selling some land and property, including a pew in Yeaveley church:

A death announcement was tricky to find but appeared in the Derby Mercury on the 11th:

I haven’t found a will.

Ari, this is how you are related to Ann:
