Bulpit(t), James
c.1775-1849 (e.m. 1799)

Missionary to British North America, born in London. In 1799 he succeeded William Thoresby at Carbonear, Newfoundland, where his wife also ran a school. After a short return visit to England, he went to Prince Edward Island in 1807. The mission there suffered from minimal supervision and he became known for his 'insobriety and disobedience [to Methodist authority]'. He was retired in 1814 and left the ministry in 1816, but spent the rest of his life on Prince Edward Island, where he is said to have 'ministered in several places'.
