Vital Records from the NEHGS Register: George Barrell, Emigrant to Boston in 1638, and his Children and Grandchildren [Part I]: Though the will of the emigrant's father was published in the Register in 1911, various questions about his family have remained unanswered.  The emigrant's wife was Anne, what was her maiden name and was she his only wife? Where in England were the emigrant's children baptized?  These questions and others have now been answered thanks to the efforts of two English researchers: Philip Barrall of Thetford, Norfolk, who for many years has privately explored Barrel origins in Suffolk and throughout England and America, and Dr. Joanna Martin of Ipswich, Suffolk, who has undertaken research in Suffolk on behalf of Russel Moe of Wildwood, Florida, and his wife Thelma, a descendant of the emigrant George Barrell. The discoveries required the two English researchers to examine extensively Suffolk church records in the parishes surrounding South Elmham and beyond.  My complementary research o this side of the Atlantic has further illuminated the lives of George and Anne and their adult children Anne, Willliam, John, and their youngest son James, who accompanied their father and mother to Boston in 1638 or arrived soon after. As a result of this Research, "Anne Gawood," mentioned as a grandchild in the emigrant's 1642 will has been identified.  1.  George Barrell, the emigrant's father, was born say 1550, probably in Suffolk, and was buried at St. Michael's, South Elmham, Suffolk, 30 May 1620. He married in Wingfield, Suffolk, 20 Oct 1576 Dorothy Bell.  She was buried at St. Michael's South Elmham, 27 July 1624, as Dorothy Barrell widow. Dorothy Bell was the daughter of James Bell, who was buried in Wingfield 8 Nov 1589. The will of James Bellj, husbandman, dated 4 Nov 1589 at winefield, was proved 7 Jan 1589/90 in Blythburgh, Suffolk, his widow Dorothie appearing there as executrix of his estate.  In the will James mentiond  wife Doroythie, daughters Margaret Wellam, Dorathie Barrell, and Ellen Sampson, and son William. According to the will, William Bell was to pay Dorathie Barrell five shillings a year for nine years beginning in the second year following James Bell's death. James Bell was almost certainly the James Bell who married Dorrithe Blowhole 24 June 1542 in Heveningham, suffolk, a parish about thirteen miles from Wingfield, ten miles from Hevingham, and four miles from South Elmham. The will of George Barrell, the emigrant's father, dated 27 May 630 at South Elmham, just three days before his burial in St. Michael's churchyard, was proved 3 June 1620 in Beccles, Suffolk. In the will George Barrell, carpenter, mentioned wife Dorothy, son George Barrell, daughter Ellen Barrell, wife of Jacob Barrell blacksmith of Layston; daughter Alice and grandchild John Baker, and grandchild John barrell of the City of Norwich. Wife Dorothy and son George were to be executors of the will.  Children of George and Dorothy (Bell) Barrell, baptized in the parishes of Wingfield, Cratfield, and Linstead Parva, Suffolk (both parents were named in all the baptism records).  i.  James Barrell, bp Wingfield 5 Oct 1578; bur there 14 Oct 1578.  ii. Gregory Barrell, bp. Cratfield 16 Oct 1580; bur there 10 Nov 1850. iii. George bp Cratfield 12 Nov 1581 m . Annis Todd. iv. John Barrell bp Cratfield 10 Nov 1583; d. presumably by 27 Mar 1620, the date of his father's will (that mentioned a grandchild John Barrell of the City of Norwich). It seems very likely that John Barrell, bp 100 Nov 1583, was the John Barrell who m. St. Savior, Norwich, Norfolk, 24 Sep 1609 Judith Sanders.  They had a son John, bp St. Augustine, Norwich, 29 June 1612 (as son of Joh[ann]is Barrell and Judith), and Judith Barrell (presumably the widow) m there 3 Oct 1614 Thomas Clark.  v.  Ellen/Helen Barrell, mentioned in her father's will as daughter Ellen, wife of Jacob Barrell, blacksmith, of Layston (now Leiston), suffolk.  Ellen Barrell m (1) Layston 9 Feb 1606[/7] Jacob Barrell, who was bur there 19 May 1621.  The will of jacob Barrell, dated 13 May 1621 at Layston, and proved 29 May 1621 in Snape, Suffolk, mentioned wife Helen and children Jacob, George, Traynor, and Dorothy.  The widow Ellen Barrell m (2) Layston 22 Oct 1621 John Gunsby. Leiston/Laystton is about thirteen miles southeast of Cratfield. The children of Jacob and Ellen (Barrell) Barrell were all baptized in Layston.  The Leiston Court Roll of 2 April 3 and 38 James [1605] states that Jacob Barrell was admitted to a copyhold, a tenement with appurtenances on Leiston Street, in 1605, and was the only son of Richard Bell.  On 21 Nov 1632, administration on the estate of Helen Barrell alias Gunsbie, late of Leiston, was granted to John Gnsbie, the husband of the deceased.  George Barrell and Jacob Barrell were probably cousins or related in some way.  vi.  Alice Barrell bp Linstead Parva, Suffolk 10 Sept 1592. The 1620 will of her father mentioned "daughter Alice and grandchild John Barker."  Grandchild John Barker was perhaps the John Barker bp Homersfield, Suffolk 13 (or 9) July 1615, son of Xpofer [Christopher] Barker and Alis. Linstead Parva and Homersfield are parishes about five miles apart, and each is about three miles from South Elmham.  2.  George Barrell (George1) the emigrant to New England, was baptized in Cratfield, Suffolk, 12 Nov 1581. He died in Boston MA on the 11th day of the 7th month 1643 [11 Sep 1643].  He married in Linstead Parva, Suffolk, 21  May 1607, Annis Todd, perhaps the Annis Todde baptized in Wingfield, Suffolk, 4 Jan 1581[/2], although the names of parents are not given. Anne Barrell, widow, died in Boston 3 Aug 1659. It is probable that George Barrell had only one wife since Annis, Agnes, and Anne (and even Hannah) were cognate given names at this time.  On 20 Oct 1638, Edward Duke, Sheriff of Suffolk, recorded that George Barrell had "gone into New England" and in 1637 had failed to pay the "shipmoney tax."  The first appearance of George Barrell in New England records was on 31 Oct 1638, when George Barrell, cooper, purchased a dwelling house and garden in Boston for 28 from Thomas Paynter, joiner.  By becoming a property owner he was admitted as a townsman by the Boston authorities, "upon condition of Inoffensive Carryage.  On 9 Nov 1638, he purchased a "parsell of ground lying next to the said house" from James Everill. George Barrell's property was on Union Street near the corner of Hanover Street. On the 24th day of the 12th month 1638 [24 Feb 1639] the town granted him a "great Lot for 9 heads at the Mount. On the 29th of the 4th month 1640 [29 June 1640], he was granted that acre of ground at "Spectackell Island" that was "passed over to him by Goodman Smith." George Barrell was admitted to the First Church in Boston as a member on 5 Sep 1641, and his wife Anne was admitted as a member on 25 Mar 1643.  Geo. Barrell was made a freeman 10 May 1643.  In the Boston Book of Possessions, created about 1645, he was on a list of 247 Boston landowners.

John Barrell (George 1, George A) was baptized in Cookley, Suffolk, 1 March 1617/8].

In 1643 John Barrell became a member of the Military Co. of MA (later called the Ancient and Hon. Artillery Co. of MA). In 1654 he was called Sergeant Barrell when he was sent to Narragansett to meet with the Indians to determine if they were conspiring with the Dutch against the English colonists. In 1656 he became ensign of the Co.  In his will dated 27 Aug 1658, roved 16 Sep 1658, John Barrell gave "all my proper Estate that is my owne to my wife to bring up the children, and to maintaine my mother." He stated that "the old house and ground is my mothers dureinge her life" and made his wife "sole executril." The inventory of the estate was valued at 434 13s. 5d., and Mary Barrell, the widow of John, desposed 18 Nov 1658.  William Colbron, in his will dated 1 Aug 1662, proved 9 Oct 1662, made numerous bequests.  His "daughter Mary Turand [sic] and her five Children wch she had by John Barrell, as James, William, John, Mary & Hannah" were to receive half of three/fourths of his estate.

History of Scituate MA: William Barrell appears in Scituate in 1676. He was the son of William Barrell who died in rather early life in Boston in 1639 and who with his brothers George and John settled in Boston and Charlestown 1636. William of Scituate married Lydia the widow of John James 1680 and resided at her residence near the block house. His children were William born 1683 Lydia 1684 Mary 1686 James 1687.  We trace the descendants of two only of these in Scituate. William married Elizabeth Bailey 1706. His children were Hannah born 1706 Lydia 1709 the wife of Joseph Young 1726 William born 1714 James 1727 Elisha 1735 and Colburn. Lydia daughter of William sen married Samuel Stock bridge in 1703 who resided on mount Blue in Scituate.

The Mayflower Descendant: A Quarterly Magazine of Pilgrim ..., Volume 19: October 1917. THE ESTATE OF WILLIAM BARRELL OF SCITUATE AND THE WILL OF WIDOW LYDIA BARRELL: By the Editor. Through the generosity of one of our members Mrs George H Woodman of Boston, we were able to present in the July 1917 issue of this magazine the probate records relating to the estate of John James of Scituate Mass the first husband of Lydia Turner4, Mary3 Brewster, Jonathan, Elder William1 with a reproduction of the original bond of administration which bears the autograph signatures of the widow Lydia James and her father John Turner. An additional gift from Mrs Woodman who is descended from William and Lydia Turner James Barrell through their son William Barrell has made it possible to reproduce in the accompanying illustration the original will of Lydia Barrell of Scituate the double widow of John James and William Barrell.. We also print an exhaustive abstract of the probate records relating to William Barrell's estate with a complete copy of the will of his widow and exhaustive abstracts of all other probate records relating to her estate In the original records of Scituate the following entry is found William Barrell married to Lydah James the 20 day of Aprell 1680. A much later hand has added the words widow of John James but this modern addition was not a part of the original record and therefore should not be accepted without verification. Fortunately we find conclusive proof that Lydah James was Lydia widow of John James and daughter of John Turner in the settlement of the estate of John James, in which his widow is called the daughter of John Turner and in the will of Lydia Barrell herself in which she mentions her son John James her son William Barrell, her Daughter Lydia Stockbridge, her son in Law Samuel Stockbridge, and her Daughter Mary Cushing and several times refers to my Father John Turner Deceased. We are very fortunate in being able to reproduce in consecutive issues of this magazine two original documents each bearing the autograph signature of Lydia the daughter of John Turner but each signed with a different name. When she signed her bond as administratrix of her first husband s estate on 5 March 1678 9 she was the widow Lydia James When she signed her own will thirty five years later on 29 April 1714, she was the widow Lydia Barrell. The settlement of William Barrell s estate and the will of Lydia Barrell follow the proper reference to the records or files being given with each copy or abstract. Estate of William Barrell Plym Co Wills 1 48. On 14 February 1688 9 an inventory of the Goods and Chattels of Mr William Barrill late of Scituate Deceased was taken by Robert Stetson and Jeremiah Hatch.
