The history of the Bulling family name begins in the German province of Bavaria. Bulling is a nickname surname, a class of German names derived from eke-names, or added names, that described people by a personal characteristic or other attribute. Bulling is a name for a bold or daring person. The family name Bulling is an Anglicized form of the Bavarian surname Buljong, or Bohlung, which is derived from the German word balt, which means bold or daring. Bulling is also a name for a person with a loud voice, which is derived from the German word bullen, which means to roar. The surname Bulling is also derived from the Old German personal name Bulling, which means a close relation or beloved. Furthermore, the surname is a local type of surname as there are several places in Germany named Bulling, Bullinge or Bullinger. Another example of this is the name of the German-Swiss town of Bullingen. These place-names derived their origin from the German word buehel, which means a hill. During the Middle Ages, the Bulling family emerged as a notable family in Bavaria and it made a significant contribution to the social, economic and political development of the region.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Bullings to arrive in North America, and among them were:
