Peter Bulkeley received a B.D. degree at St. John's College, Cambridge. He succeeded his father
in the parish of Odell; however, his Puritan leanings eventually caused him to be silenced
for nonconformity. The 1635 passenger list for the Susan & Ellin contains the names Peter Bulkley,
age 50, Ben. Bulkley 11, Daniell Bulkley 9. At about the same time, the passenger list of Elizabeth
and Ann contained the name Grace Bulkley, age 33. It can be presumed that the other children
traveled on one ship or the other under fictitious names.|
Peter lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for a while then founded Concord where he "buried a great estate" in the wilderness. He was a scholar, composer of Latin verses, author of Gospel Covenant, and served Concord as preacher until shortly before his death.
Sailed in May 1635 on the "Susan and Ellen" to Massachusetts with three children.
