  Visitation (Foster 1875, Yorkshire, 1584/5+1612, Bulmer of Wilton and Pinchinthorpe) shows William as ancestor of the Bulmers of Leveninge by the daughter/heiress of Margaret Wilberfoss. The following comes from Walker's Yorkshire Pedigrees (1942, Bulmer of Leavening) with support from Visitation (Foster 1875, Yorkshire, 1584/5+1612, Bulmer of Levening). We show it here but note that Walker does not make the connection between the William (who married Joan Acworth, son of Sir John) and the William who starts the article on this branch, there identifying William merely as "a relation of William Chamberlain, whose Will was dated 1489". Although the dates appear just about possible, somehow, the number of different generations on this branch compared with the above lead us to be uncertain on this connection and so to put the following into italics so as to highlight that uncertainty.
