Viscount Bulkeley

Viscount Bulkeley

The title of Viscount Bulkeley was created in the Peerage of Ireland on 19 January 1644 for Thomas Bulkeley, the son of Sir Richard Bulkeley of Beaumaris and a supporter of King Charles I of England. The seventh viscount was created Baron Bulkeley in the Peerage of Great Britain on 14 May 1784. On his death in 1822 both titles became extinct. Sir Richard Bulkeley Williams, 10th Baronet, of Penrhyn, succeeded to the Bulkeley estates and assumed by Royal license the additional surname of Bulkeley.

From the second to the sixth viscount, all viscounts were Members of Parliament first of Anglesey, then of Beaumaris.
