I should perhaps have added that a 1787 (or early 1788) year of birth concurs with the age shown (83) in the 1871 Census (taken on April 2nd), and also with the age given (86) at his death in Feb 1874.

The author of this page has confused the data of 2 different Bullocks - father and son. Admiral Frederick Bullock was born 17 Nov 1788 and died 6 Feb 1874. As stated, he was commissioned 22 Jan 1812. His son, Lt Frederick Alexander Lyon Bullock, was born 5 Apr 1825 and died 23 Feb 1848. Young Frederick was commissioned as a Lt 24 Nov 1847. The elder Frederick had 2 other sons in the Royal Navy - Rear Admiral Charles James Bullock(1826-1904) and Lt Augustus Thomas John Bullock(1828-1868).
