BELLINGER

Ginna's Paternal Grandmother's Ancestors: Bellinger, et al

By Wes Patterson (Last Revised: 13 April 2017)

My wife was born Ginna Fishburne, daughter of Charles Carroll Fishburne and Virginia Holton (Fishburne). Ginna actually descends from the Bellinger family three different ways, so I will show each lineal descent below. Technically, Ginna descends from Edmund Bellinger I at least 7 different ways -- 3 via his son Edmund II, 3 more via his daughter Lucia, and 1 more via his daughter Elizabeth.

Edmund Bellinger's daughter, Lucia Bellinger, married Burnaby Bull. The Bull family is easily traceable into the European Royal families. There are original family notes from 1810 in our possession that give the genealogy of the Bellingers from 1810 back to Edmund Bellinger, 1st Landgrave. Here are pictures of those pages.
