Yes, the Buell family is focused on the US side due to the fact that during the time that the book was being written, I had considerable difficulty getting the information from the other side of the Atlantic Thank you though for the leads, although, this was probably my last book so someone else will have to take that up under print. How about you?

I am only commenting on the The English Bevill portion. It is incomplete with misinformation and does not connect to the William Buel family of Windsor. William Bevill born 1605 Chesterton, Died 1637 in London. His death is recorded at St Michael Church Chesterton. He practiced law at Gray's Inn of Court London. Mary Coles (died in 1610 Windsor?? There was no Windsor Connecticut in 1610and is reported in Town Records as 1639) Her husband does not.and she does have a known parentage history on her mother"s side as does Robert Bevill which he shows. Did they cremate or pickle Robert and send him home?
I suspect they checked church records and in want of connecting to the pedigree they did not look for a death record and will. In this Will he named sisters Lady Hewet, Lady Elmes and Lady Driden. Brother Robert and Goddaughter Elmes.confirming he is the one who died in England
His will was printed in Asselia Lichliter's "700 years of the Bevill Family, etc".
This book might be good on this side of the Atlantic but not in England.
At least he did not name Robert's second wife Elizabeth Hampson as Catherine Good in reality her mother as many do. Or say she was mother of the children. Before you call me wrong check the Lichliter "700 years of the Bevilles". She had no reason to make up a false Will and probate.
