      From Pat Patterson's website at http://www.patpnyc.com/buller.shtml
      Richard Buller was a noted parliamentarian in the pre-Civil-Waryears and
      the beginning of the war in England. I have received lineage notes
      indicating he died in 1642, but I haven't yet found any record or source
      for that date. The sources I've found tell of the opening battles in
      Cornwall and the rout of the parliamentarians by the royal forces -- and
      after that, no more mention of Richard. I'll be getting these sources up
      in the course of the week. If anyone has information on his demise,
      please let me know.

      death." Property: 'Manor of Helstone in Trigg. This manor lay mainly in
