*** Provided by B. Bowyer : "My ancestor, Samuel Bowyer, was proprietor of the Bull in Halstead, as mentioned in his will of 1807 (probated 1808) which left it to his second wife, Bridget Hatton, from whom he may have got it in the first place when he married her in 1790. He also had 2 smithies, one in Halstead, and one in Hedingham, and left one of these to each of his two sons.
