Sir Ralph Bulmer was born in Wilton in Cleveland (now called Redcar and Cleveland).

He was the son of Sir John Bulmer (1490 Kirkleatham-Aug 25 1537 Tyburn-Westminster) and Ann Bigod (born 1483 Settringham).

In the late 11th century the Bulmer family were first recorded as building a wooden manor house on the lands of the Wilton Castle estate. Sir Ralph deBulmer received a royal charter in 1170 confirming his ownership.
The Wilton Castle estate was forfeited to the crown after execution of Sir John and Lady Bulmer for high treason on May 25 1537. Both particiapated in the Pilgrimage of Grace- a protest against King Henry VIII's break with the Roman Catholic Church. In 1547 King Edward VI restored the estate to their nephew, Sir Ralph de Bulmer (d. 1558).

In 1558 Queen Mary I granted the estate to Sir Thomas Cornwallis and the estate passed from his son and grandson to his great-grandson Lord Charles Cornwallis in 1698.] Lord Cornwallis sold the estate in the early 1700s to Sir Stephen Fox.] Sir Stephen's son by his second marriage was created Earl of Ilchester in 1747 and sold the estate the following year.

The estate was purchased by estate of Robert Lowther for the benefit of (Sir) James Lowther (1736–1802), member of Parliament (1757–1784).] Sir James Lowther became the first Earl of Lonsdale in 1784 and after his death in 1802 the Earldom of Lonsdale became extinct.

From Bulmer's 'History and Directory of Yorkshire'
published in 1890

?This estate, with others belonging to the family, were restored to their son Ralph.

?Sir John Lowther, the first baronet (created 1824), was the second son of the Rev. Sir William Lowther, and brother of the first Earl of Lonsdale. He married, in 1790, Elizabeth, second daughter of the ninth Earl of Westmoreland. The Lowthers* are an ancient family, who take their name from the parish of Lowther, in Westmoreland, where they were settled around the time of the Norman Conquest.

Sir Ralph Bulmer requested in his will that he be buried at St. Boltoph, Bishopgate, London- but he was buried at Wilton in Cleveland.
