There’s a lot of information about the village squires in The Hall Squires and in The History of our Reading Room.


Major Henry Robert Bullock: the father of William Henry Bullock:









Henry Bullock was the father of William Bullock who changed his surname to Hall in order to inherit Six Mile Bottom estate on the death of his uncle, General John Hall, in 1872.


The Huntingdonshire Gazette reported on the visit of the Prince of Wales –  the future King Edward VII. Wolferton was then the railway station for Sandringham, north of King’s Lynn in Norfolk. This must have been before 1872, the year of General Hall’s death.






“NEWMARKET. – Visit of the Prince of Wales to General Hall.- On Monday H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, attended by Major-General Grey, left Wolferton by the ordinary 4.37 train, for Cambridge, and thence proceeded by the ordinary train on the Newmarket and Bury line to Six-mile Bottom for a couple of days’ shooting with General Hall, at Weston Colville, a distinguished party of sportsmen being invited to meet his Royal Highness. The Princess of Wales remains at Sandringham.”
