From: "Tim Doyle" <tim -at-> Subject: RE: [WHITNEY-L] Elinor Date: Sun, 4 May 2003 12:32:08 -0500 In-Reply-To: <> I have additional information on this Elinor Bull from personal correspondence with Paul C. Reed a few years back. In that email, he states: "Now this Elinor Bull was Eleanor Whitney, who married Richard Bull at St. Mary le Bow, London, 14 Oct. 1571. After her husband Richard's death at Deptford, Kent, Eleanor apparently let out a room, though she did not run a tavern or anything of that like. It was at her house that the playwright and poet Christopher Marlowe was slain by Ingram Frizer in 1593." Additional information on the life and death of Christopher Marlowe can be found on the following website: <a href=""></a> l A description of the book "Who Killed Kit Marlowe" can be found at: <a href=""></a> Tim Doyle > -----Original Message----- > From: Carroll County Review -at- > Sent: Sunday, May 04, 2003 9:56 AM > To: WHITNEY-L -at- > Subject: [WHITNEY-L] Elinor > > > Dear Listers: > > Received the following from a cousin on my Whitney side who in > turn received > it from a correspondent of his in the UK.
