    ?...the opinion that Anne, Lady Newcomen, was also a Bulleyn of Clonony.?
    (BOLEYN by WELPLY Notes and Queries.1952; 197: 89-91)
    Anne Boleyn [wife of Robert Newcomen] had two sisters who are interred in the old burial ground at Clononey [aka Clonoona] Castle, near Shinrone in King's County (now Offaly). The tombstone over their grave bears the following inscription : ? Here under leys Elizabeth and Mary Bullyn, daughters of Thomas Bullyn, son of George Bullyn the Son of George Bullyn Vicount Rochford son of Sr Thomas Bullyn Erle of Ormond and Willsheere.
    I used to wonder how these two sisters came to be buried in Ireland, and imagined that in all probability, thye had come over from England with their sister Anne, when she married Sir Robert Newcomen.
    (The house of Gregory. Vere Richard Trench Gregory - 1943.)
    George son of George Bullyn ( 1504?-1536)  had a son named Thomas who fathered Mary & Elizabeth  Bullyn,
    There  are  2  paintings  at  Birr  Castle,  Co  Offaly (the  home of the  Earl  of  Rosse)  which  are  believed  to  be  portraits of   the  daughters  Mary  and  Elizabeth  Bullen  (they  bear  the  inscriptions   ?anno aetatis  17/18?  i.e.  ?in  the 17th /18th  year  of  their  age?.
    Welply (genealogist /historian)  says  it  is  very  likely  that  Ann  Bulleyn  who  married  Sir  Robert  Newcomen 4th  Bt (died  1677) was  also  a  sister  of  the  Mary  and  Elizabeth  and  heralded  from    Clonony  Castle.
