Eleanor Bull


Eleanor Bull

Eleanor Bull, born perhaps about 1550, and was buried March 19, 1596 at Deptford. She married Richard Bull October 14, 1571 at St Mary-le-Bow, London.

Eleanor is known for owning the establishment in which Christopher Marlowe, the Elizabethan playwright and poet, died in 1593 as the result of a quarrel with Ingram Frizer. Also present were Nicholas Skeres and Robert Poley.

The house was on Deptford Strand, in Deptford, which was in Kent, but is now within London.

Eleanor was a great-niece to Blanche Parry, a companion of Queen Elizabeth I. Blanche gave Eleanor a large legacy in her Will.

Eleanor may be related by family to Dr. John Dee, astrologer to Queen Elizabeth I.

She was born Eleanor (or "Elinor") Whitney, daughter of James and Sybil (Parry) Whitney of Clifford. Although the main branch of the Whitney family had a castle at Whitney-on-Wye [ [http://www.smr.herefordshire.gov.uk/castles/castlesdata_az/whitney.htm Whitney Castle, Whitney on Wye] ] , in Herefordshire, Eleanor was from a related branch of that family who resided in nearby Clifford, Herefordshire.
