The ancestors of all of these families have recently been able to rediscover their roots through Clan societies and other Scottish organizations. Among them: Captain Bulley who settled in Boston Mass in 1763; Mathew Bulley settled in Maryland in 1727; John Bulley arrived in Philadelphia in 1866. But perhaps the first settler was Nicholas Bully who settled in Maine in 1630. George Bully settled in Maryland in 1730..
