Williams, Anne Maria, of Penpont, co. Brecon,
s. her brother 19 Nov. 1893.

Lineagre. — Jones, in his History of Brectnocl-sJiire, ti-aces
the descent of this ancient family from Sin Thomas, or Sir
Richard Boleyne, or Bcllen, one of the knights of Bernard
Newmarch, a Norman Chieftain, who, allured by the success
of Robert FMtzhamon, in co. Glamorgan, was tempted, with
a determined band of followers, to enter co. Brecknock, which
he conquered from Rhys ap Tewdwr, Prince of South Wales.
From this same family of Bullen sprang, it is believed, the
Bollens, or BoLETNEs, of Blickling, Norfolk; but English
genealogists have been silent as to the descent prior to Sir
Thomas Boleyne, 1411, from whom Anna Boletne, Queen of
England, was the 4th in descent. Of the unfortunate Queen
(always considered of the same race as the Breconshire Bullens),
there is a very good portrait at Penpont.

Rev. Thomas Williams, M.A., Vicar of Llanspyddid, son of
William ap Philip ap Richard Lawrence ap John ap Lawrence
Bullen, appears, from an inscription on his gravestone, to have
been proud of his traditional descent from the same ancestor,
as the mother of Queen Elizabeth. From his having been
the first who introduced the use of the surplice in the church
service, he was called "Vicar gwyn Llanspyddid," or the
White Vicar of Llanspyddid. He m. Anne, dau. of Thomas
Stonies, of Even-jobb, co. Radnor, and d. 1613, leaving by her
(with four daus.) an only son.

dau. of John Lewis, of Ffrwdgrech, and had issue,

an only son, Thomas Williams, vi. Esther, dau. and
