    Notes 
    • William R. Austin writes in his Bunnell/Bonnell Family in America, second edition, “Two different origins have been presented for him [William Bunnell] in twentieth century literature, but neither has been supported by any sort of evidence.” The two origins he refers to are (1) he was a farmer and tanner from Cheshire, England, and (2) he was the grandson of Thomas Bonnell, a Hugenot refugee who settled in Norwich, England.

      William, of New Haven, returned to England in 1654.

      From Ward and Allied Families:
      “William Bunnell, from England, was in New Haven, Connecticut, as early as April 3, 1650. On August 6, of the same year, William Bunill and two others were ‘ordered to pay 5s a peece because ye names of each ofthem a child was not brought in within three monethes after they were borne.’ At some time before October, 1651, he went to England and returned again to New Haven, his wife and children remaining in New Haven while he was gone. In May, 1654, his wife and youngest child (Ebenezer) having died, William Bunnell returned to England.” [1, 2, 3]
