Notes for Francis Bushnell:
from Bushell Family Genealogy:
"prob. rem abt. or after 1600 to Horsham, co. Sussex, where he m. and were all his children were born..."

"It would appear that he was an artisan, perhaps a painter and decorator, for in 1610/11, 'Frauncis Bushnell' was paid vs (five shilligs [sic]) for 'cullering the funt' (of the church or altar), also his sons were artisans, for his son Francis was a willwright, his son William a carpenter, and his son John a glazier and later a barber, while his eldest son Edmund was evidently an artisan as well as a farmer."

"In 1635, his five living sons left their native shore bound for America, and four years later he followed with his two dau's, Sarah and Rebecca, in the company of Rev. Henry Whitfield, aboard the St. John. After they had been at sea about ten days, the company formulated a covenant, sometimes called the 'Guilford Covenant' or 'The Plantation Convenant,' upon which his name appears third, while that of the Rev. John Hoadley, who married his daughter Sarah, appears ninth. The company landed at Fair Haven, Connecticut between the 10th and 15th of July 1639 and two months later the deed was signed for their new settlement at Menunkatuck, purchased of the Quinipiac Indians, which they named Guilforde after the shire town in Surry from which some of the emigrants came."

The covenant reads: "We whose names are here under-written, intending by God's gracious permission to establish ourselves in New England, if it may be in the south part about Quinapossack (New Haven), we faithfully promise, each to each, for ourselves and families and all that belongs to us, that we will, the Lord assisting us, sit down and join ourselves together in one entire plantation and be helpful each to the other in any common work, according to everyman's ability and as need shall require; and we promise not to depart or leave each other on the plantation but with the consent of the rest, or the greater part of those who have entered into this engagement.
"As for our gathering ourselves together in a church way, and the choice of officers and members to be gathered in that way, we do refer ourselves to such time as it please God to settle us in our plantation.
"In witness whereof we subscribe our hands this first day of June, 1639."

FRANCIS BUSHNELL, SENIOR, was one of the party and he has been identified as the Francis Bushnell who married, March 13, 1605, at Horsham, Sussex, England, Ferris Quynell or Quenell (bapt. at Horsham April 17, 1587, daughter of Henry and Beatrix (Carter) Quynell). The baptisms of their eleven children are recorded in the Horsham registers. The first child, Edmund, married in England and perhaps remained there. Francis, Junior, with his wife, came to New England on the ship Planter in 1635. William, John, Richard, Rebecca and Sarah also at one time or another came over. Of the rest of the eleven children, Stephen, Thomas and Mary died young, and Elizabeth, baptized on the 5th of March 1627/8, was buried a few days later with her mother on the 10th of March. The mother was then about forty-one years of age. The next year (June 2, 1629) Francis Bushnell, Senior, married (2) Joane Kinward, and two years later her burial is recorded at Horsham, June 21, 1631. No proof has been found that he had a third wife in New England. He died at Guilford in 1646, about eighteen years after the death of his wife Ferris, the mother of his children.
