Will of Hannah Buller, Spinster, Town and Port of Sandwich, Kent - The National Archives PROB 11/1117/380, probated 17 Jun 1784

No ideas on the Buller family in Kent. Two sisters Hannah (the testator) and her sister Elizabeth. No ideas of ages. There are a number of wills for Buller family members in Kent (six in total):

Peter Buller, Gentleman of Sandwich, Kent, PROB 11/1421/293, probated 30 Mar 1805
Mary Buller, Widow of Ramsgate, Kent, PROB 11/2138/378, probated 3 Sep 1851
Thomazin Buller, Widow of Ospringe, Kent, PROB 11/356/3, probated 17 Jan 1678
Sarah Buller, Widow of Minster Isle of Thanet, Kent, PROB 11/1405/264, 6 Mar 1804
Right Reverend William Buller (Lord Bishop of Exeter, Dean of Canterbury, Kent, PROB 11/1284/89, probated 28 Jan 1797

The Will of Sarah Buller might be rather interesting although probably attached to the Buller family of Cornwall with their interest in the Isle of Thanet. Also Thomazin Buller probated in 1678 although this will is over one hundred years later.

London wills for the Buller family will follow next.
