notes

Apparently was in ill-health for a lengthy period of time, as she was treated by John Winthrop several times between 1658 and 1660 (Wintrhop's Journal).

Winthrop wrote that Samuel Buswell of Salisbury, Mass. Was kin to Rebecca Smith of Hockanum, Conn. Richard and Rebecca named a son "Samuel" as did their son Richard and Joseph.454 There's a record for Samuel Buswell, chr. 17 Aug 1728, son of Isaac Buswell, in the Husbands Bosworth parish register.

James Buswell settled at Hockanum near Wethersfield. His will dated 24 Sep 1660, witnessed by Richard Smith, Jr., gave property to his uncle and aunt and Jonathan Smith, and his land at Glastonbury to his cousins Richard Smith and Joseph Smith. (TAG 25:126)

Tentative connection to the Husbands Bosworth family, based on AF connection. The christening record cited is for a female Buswell, no name given. All the other children listed in AF are accounted for. Husbands Bosworth is about 30 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon.
