About meEdward Bulkeley (1677 - 27 August 1748), son of Gershom Bulkeley, and the inheritor of a substantial portion of his father's books and manuscripts.

A captain in the militia, Bulkeley also sat as a justice for the peace for Hartford County (1714-1715 and 1744-1748), and represented Wethersfield at the General Court several times (1714-1716, 1721, 1724), along with many other local offices.

Bulkeley married Dorothy Prescott; the pair had several children.

About my libraryBulkeley's library is as given in his will, dated 24 August 1748 and transcribed in A Digest of the Early Connecticut Probate Records, III:512-514.
