Special thanks to the following people for their extensive research and documentation, which was used in compiling the information in this annex:

 

1. John Addison Biles.

 

2. Frances Lee (Kennedy) Biles.

 

3. William R. Austin: Information in the early generations of this Annex was taken principally from The Bunnell/Bonnell Family in America, Volume I by William R. Austin, published in 1999 by Heritage Books, Inc. and the unpublished Bunnell Family manuscript, which was written by John Addison Biles, further organized and edited by Frances Lee (Kennedy) Biles, and provided for reference to William R. Austin by Marian Elizabeth Biles.  Thus, Mr. Austin’s work is considered the most authoritative on this subject.

7   William Bunnell

 

    A. Biographical notes:

 

Probably born about 1600/17 in Cheshire, England and arrived in New England with the Winthrop Fleet of 1630, since a William Bunnell was in Massachusetts Bay Colony on 28 September 1630 for jury duty. (also seen: emigrated 1638)

 

It was probably the same William Bunnell of the Massachusetts Bay Colony who, for unknown reasons, did not support himself or his family well and was a constant and frustrating burden on society.  In 1640 the General Court of the Colony asked the town of Watertown to provide William Bunnell a lot, and to fund the initiative if William could not.  In 1645 that same court appointed a committee to arrange disposition of Goodman Bunnell’s children, if their grandfather (Benjamin Wilmot) would not, and to dispose of certain goods to the benefit of Goodman Bunnell.

 

In May 1646 William Bunnell returned to England, apparently abandoning his wife and children, and the General Court agreed to pay for 30 shillings worth of clothing when he arrived there.  Ann (Wilmot) Bunnell moved to New Haven Colony to live with her parents, testifying years later that William “left little or nothing to maintain them” and telling her that the children were as much hers as his and, thus, that he was leaving them with her.  Because her father did not feel able and willing to support the additions to his family, one of the two boys, probably Benjamin, was indentured to Nicholas Elsy, and Lydia was indentured to Samuel Whitehead.

 

In 1649, if not before, William Bunnell returned to Massachusetts Bay Colony from England and followed his family to New Haven Colony, where he, apparently, was able to reconcile with his wife.  On 3 April 1650 the New Haven Court relieved William (“Goodman Bunill”) from having to pay his poll tax because he was poor, old, and weak.  The following month, May 1650, Ann (Wilmot) gave birth to Mary Bunnell, and in August 1650 William was fined for not reporting the birth, as prescribed by law.  A few months later, 7 January 1651, William’s landlord, sought help from the Court to evict William Bunnell for failure pay his rent.  Though an eviction arrangement was ordered, William did not comply, and the Court had to intercede again.  The matter was finally resolved without further Court action.

 

In October 1651 William asked the New Haven Court to terminate the indentures of his two children, but his request was denied, probably because nothing had changed with regards to William’s ability and/or willingness to support his family.  In fact, in the following months New Haven authorities agreed to provide William two shillings per week to help him support his family, and they considered what to do with William’s son who was still at home (probably Nathaniel), “who now for want of due nurture growes rude and offensive.”  Many felt this son should also be indentured away from William, and one townsman offered William a cow if he would release the boy to him for a number of years.  When William refused that offer, New Haven halted William’s weekly assistance.

 

William and Ann had a third son, Ebenezer, on 28 August 1653, but he died soon after, and New Haven authorities remained concerned with William’s household “both for the good of the children (who are not educated as they should) & for the easing ye Towne of charge.”  Ann died in February 1654, and on 1 May of that year William asked the Town of New Haven for help in returning himself to England, where he claimed to have friends.  Townsmen saw the long term benefits of supporting his request and passage was secured on a ship bound for England via Newfoundland.  Assuming William took that ship and arrived in England, he probably died there.

 

William’s children remained in New Haven.  Whether the two youngest were “put out” into indentured status, like their older siblings, is unknown. 

 

    B. Wife: Ann/Anna Annie Wilmot

 

1.  Ann’s birth: Unknown, but undoubtedly in England.

 

           Ann’s death: Soon after February 1654, when she was reported sick.

 

2.  Ann’s parents: Benjamin (b. 1589, d. 18 Aug 1669, age 80) and Ann (Ladd) Wilmot (d. 7 Oct 1668), probably emigrated from England before 1641, settling first in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, then among the original settlers of the New Haven (Connecticut) Colony, signing the covenant there in 1639.  Took the Oath of Fidelity on 2 May 1648.  Most, if not all, of the New Haven settlers came from the Massachusetts Bay Colony.  In his will, dated 7 August 1669, Benjamin Wilmot left 20 shillings each to his Bunnell grandchildren: Benjamin Bunnell, Nathaniel Bunnell, Lydia (Bunnell) French, and Mary (Bunnell) Bunn.  Benjamin and Ann (Ladd) Wilmot had 5 children.

 

3.  Other biographical notes on Ann:

 

Probably married at Massachusetts Bay Colony in or before 1635.  Apparently received little material or emotional support from her husband and led a hard, impoverished life for her association with him.
