    Notes 
    • The earliest tax list of Rehoboth in 1671 shows Samuel as a taxpayer. His tax was 3 shillings and that of a Widow Bullock, his stepmother, was 11 pence.

      "Swansea Baptist Church Records": "[p. 38] 3d of 5 mo [1673] Sam: Bullock proposed and was admitted as Tho: Barns;" "31 of 5 mo 73 Tho: Barnes and Sam: Bullock were fully assented to an [sic]"

      In 1674, he was the only Bullock named on the list of taxpayers in that town. He and his brother, John, were named in the list of freeholders of Rehoboth in Major William Bradfordās Quit Claim Deeds of 26 December 1689. On 10 June 1706, Samuel Bullock of Rehoboth and John Bullock of Providence sold land in Rehoboth - "Aits being ye home lott of our father, Richard Bulluk, deceased". Samuel and Thankful mortgaged land on Palmerās River on 13 February 1716. The mortgage was recorded as paid 17 June 1732 but not signed.

      In 1675, Samuel was a contributor to the expenses of King Phillipās War. He was made a freeman in 1680 and was admitted in 1682. In 1696, he was chosen as a representative to the General Court of Massachusetts but declined to serve. He was a Deacon in the 1st Baptist church of Swansea, Mass. As well as being a large landholder in Rehoboth, Samuel was one of the first purchasers in Swansea, MA.

      After 1667, men of Rehoboth set up Swansea as a Baptist township and continued to be proprietors and landholders of both Rehoboth and Swansea. Many people from Rehoboth who did not agree with the doctrine of the Congregationalist Church of Christ in Rehoboth continued to live in Rehoboth but became proprietors of Swansea and attended the services at the Baptist Church there. Samuel attended the ordination of the Rev. William Peckham as pastor of the First Baptist Church at Newport, Rhode Island on 15 November 1711 with his pastor, Rev. Samuel Luther who served the Swansea church from 1685 to 1716.
