BULL, William, lieutenant governor of South Carolina, born in 1710; died in London, 4 July, 1791. He was a son of William Bull, who had also been lieutenant governor of South Carolina, and who died in 1755, aged seventy-two. After distinguishing himself in his studies at home, he went to Europe and became a pupil of Boerhaave, the famous Leyden physician, and, having completed his studies, returned to South Carolina. He was a member of the colonial council of South Carolina in 1751 and speaker of the house of delegates in 1763, and was appointed lieutenant governor of that colony in 1764. He continued in the latter office many years, and was commander-in-chief of the colony. In 1782 he accompanied the British troops to England, and remained there until his death.
