À mon sujetGershom Bulkeley (1636/7 - 2 December 1713), minister, doctor, and alchemist of Wethersfield and Glastonbury, Connecticut.

A graduate of Harvard College (Class of 1655), Bulkeley was minister at New London, CT from 1661 until 1666 (being succeeded by Simon Bradstreet) and then at Wethersfield until 1677.

Bulkeley was a chaplain and surgeon to Connecticut troops during King Philip's War, during which service he was wounded in the thigh.

Following his voluntary departure from the ministry, Bulkeley moved to Glastonbury, where he engaged in medical practice and politics. He served as Wethersfield's representative to the General Court in 1679, and as justice of the peace for Hartford County. He was responsible for the adoption of a higher evidentiary standard for witchcraft prosecutions, which resulted in a much lower conviction rate.

Bulkeley married Sarah Chauncy, daughter of the well-known minister Charles Chauncy. The pair had three children: Catharine (m. Richard Treat), Dorothy (m. Thomas Treat), Charles, Peter (lost at sea), Edward, and John.

À propos de ma bibliothèqueBulkeley's library is as given in his will, dated 26 May 1712 and transcribed in A Digest of the Early Connecticut Probate Records, Vol. II, pp. 165-167. Unfortunately many of the books are not given with full titles, so there was certainly a much larger library than is reflected here. Further additions are very much welcome.
