History of the Buell Family in England and America, Abert Welles, American College Genealogy Registry, Family History Heraldry Society Library, 1881, NY
p1: "First Generation.
"William Buell or Bewelle or Beville or Dorchester MA and Windsor CT, was born at Chesterton in Huntingdonshire England about 1610 and emigrated to America about 1630. He settled first at Dorchester MA and thence removed to Windsor CT about 1635/1636 where he died 23 Nov 1681...
p20: "The Family of Bevilles in England is very Ancient in that Country and of such note that Robert Beville was Knight of the Shire for Huntingdonshire, 12th Henry IV (1410); and Thomas Beville held the same office in 3rd and 5th Henry V (1415-1417). Sir Robert Beville of Chesterton in Huntingdonshire, Knight of the Bath, married Catharine, daughter of Sir John Goode, about 1600. She was a widow of Sir Robert Hampson, Knight, Alderman of London; also of Sir Gilbert Wakering.
"Catherine (daughter of Sir John Beville, who died in 1636) married Sir John Hewet, son of Sir Thomas Hewet of Pishiobury in Hertfordshire. Sir John was created a Baronet 11 Oct 1621.
"Catherine Beville was sister and co-heiress of Sir Richard Beville, of Chesterton in Huntingdonshire, Knight of the Bath, in the reign of King James I (1603-1625) and died 1640. This Sir Richard was the last male heir of the Family. After his death in 1640 the estate was divided between Sir John Hewet of Worsley in Huntingdonshire and John Dryden Esq who had married the two sisters and co-heiresses of Sir Richard.
"The children of Catharine Beville Hewet were two sons Sir John and Robert and five daughters Elizabeth, Catharine, Frances, Anne, and Grace...
"It would appear from the above that William Buell of Windsor was of the Bevilles of Huntingdonshire and at the time of his emigration to America changed the orthography of his name toBuell, a very common thing in those days, as nearly all the emigrants fled from Religious persecution, which at that time (1630) was more particularly acrimonious and cruel than at any other period. He might have been a younger son of the Sir Robert Beville of Chesterton in Huntingdonshire. Another indication of consanguinuity lies in the 'given' name of William Buell's mother (Goode Buell), which was probably from Sir John Goode, the grandfather of Mrs Catharine Beville Hewet. "Another evidence of relationship is found in the Windsor Records, which state that 'Ephriam Hewet and divers others came up from the bay (Massachusetts Bay) to Windsor to settle here 17 Aug 1639. He had been a Puritan Minister in Wraxall, nearKenilworth in Warwickshire and had been proceeded against by Archbishop Laud (the greatest persecutor of the Puritans) in 1638 for neglect of Ceremonies and emigrated to America in 1639 and landed at Boston MA. He also changed his name from Hewet to Huet (Huit), and was evidently one of the younger sons of the Hewet family mentioned above of Chestertown, Huntingdon- shire, and being a relative of William Buell (or Beville) of Windsor.
"This Ephriam Hewet or Huet on his arrivalat Windsor became colleague with Rev Mr John Wareham or whom it is recorded that he preached at Windsor thirty-six years. That he came from England in 1630 and landed at Nantucket 30 May. the people who came with him were the emigrants who settled at Dorchester MA in the same year. A portion of these removed and settled at Windsor CT in 1635 and among them was William Buell.
"Rev John Wareham sailed from Plymouth England 30 Mar 1630 in the ship 'Mary and John' and on his arrivalat Windsor- then almost a wilderness- he was, with four others (viz Messrs Mason, Ludlow, Stoughton and Wolcott)appointed to superintend the Settlement of Windsor."
