Bullard in 1895.

Sir Harry Bullard DL (1841 – 26 December 1903) was an English brewer and Conservative politician.

Bullard was born at Norwich, the son of Richard Bullard, who had founded the brewery company of Bullard & Watts in 1837. When Richard Bullard died in 1864, his three sons, Harry, Charley and Fred ran the brewery, erecting the new building in 1864 which still remains as a shell. In March 1895 the brewery was incorporated as a Limited Company

In 1877 Harry Bullard was made Sheriff, and he was Mayor of Norwich in 1878,[1] 1879 and 1886. At the 1885 general election Bullard was elected as one of the two Members of Parliament (MP) for Norwich, but he was unseated on petition.[2] He was knighted in 1887.[3] At the 1895 general election he stood successfully at Norwich,[4] and held the seat until his death in 1904.[5] He was made a Deputy Lieutenant of Norfolk in 1887,[6] and also served as a Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for the county. He lived at Hellesdon House.
