Bartle Bull (politician)
He was the eldest son of William Perkins Bull, KC of Eaton Place in London and Lorne Hall in Rosedale, Toronto, Canada. Born in Toronto, he was educated in England at Eton College and Magdalen College, Oxford. He subsequently studied law, passing bar examinations in criminal law and procedure in 1925 and property and conveyancing in 1926. He was called to the bar at the Inner Temple in 1928. In the same year he moved to Bartle, Cuba, to manage his family's cattle ranch and sugar plantation. On return to England he began to practice law on the South Eastern Circuit.
In February 1935 Bull was chosen by the Enfield District Conservative Association to contest the local constituency at the next general election, in place of the retiring member of parliament, Lieutenant-Colonel R V K Applin. He retained the seat for the Conservatives at the general election held in October 1935.
