The Nathan Bulkley House (1750)

January 26th, 2011 Posted in Colonial, Fairfield, Houses

Like the Justin Hobart House and the Isaac Tucker House, the Nathan Bulkley House, built in 1750, survived the burning of Fairfield by the British in 1779. According to The Old Burying Ground of Fairfield, Conn. (1882), by Kate E. Perry, Nathan Bulkley “was deacon in the Congregational Church; a prominent man in town affairs, and Town Clerk for 82 consecutive years. He married Sarah, daughter of Joseph Perry, I. At the burning of Fairfield Nathan Bulkley owned the ‘Colonial home’ which descending to the second wife of the late Dr. J. T. Denison, is yet standing and In good repair.”

    Is this the same house referred to in the Maltby-Maltbie Family History by Dorothy Verrill on page 306, as owned by Ebenezer Bulkley and wife Hannah Maltby?
