Tulse’s father and grandfather had both represented Christchurch in Parliament. He himself was brought in as a temporary Member by the Burrards for their seat at Lymington after the death of John Burrard*. Tulse was a Whig, but was in Parliament for little more than a month before the dissolution. In the February 1701 contested election at Lymington he voted for the two Whig candidates, Paul Burrard I* and Thomas Dore*. The manor of Walhampton near Lymington was conveyed to him in 1727, but it had passed out of his hands by 1742. The date of his death has not been ascertained.3
