    John Bullard settled first at Watertown, MA, in 1636, where he was a proprietor in 1638, and with his wife Magdalene, was admitted to the church 2 May 1639. He took the freeman's oath 13 May 1640. With his brother William he became a proprietor of the settlement at Dedham, when the company of Watertown church members established themselves there. His dismissal from the church at Watertown to the one at Dedham, was dated 30 May 1641, " Mr. Phillips, the pastor, and Elders Carter and Howe, testifying in his favor." He had been one of the original purchasers of Dedham, having signed the social compact of proprietor's 1 Jun 1636, and lands were assigned him adjoining his brother William's. The brothers were rated among the more able citizens and private accounts against John Bullard were entered as "one of the two Bullards of Dedham." In 1650, he became one of the select proprietors of the new town of Medfield, where lands were assigned him and where with the other proprietors, he enjoyed a great degree of the confidence of the General Court, they were not bound in the act of incorporation "to build within a specified time, a meeting house, settle a minister, and establish a school," their character being sufficient pledge that these things would soon be done. A house of eight acres was assigned to John in Medfield in 1652. In 1675, John is on the list of subscribors to the fund for the "new brick college" (Harvard), his contribution to be a bushel and a half of "Indian corn." In his will the homestead is given to his son, Joseph, with legacies to be paid to John Partridge, son-in-law, and two daughters, Abigail Stockwell, and Hannah, wife of Benjamin Allen, no other heirs being mentioned. He died by "the overthrowing of a cart". .....Children of John & Magdalene: . 1.John Bullard, b. 1632 in Barnham, St. Martin, Suffolk, Eng. . 2.Magdalene Bullard, b.
