    Notes 
    • Francis BUSHNELL (carpenter, aged 26) embarked from England April 1635 aboard the "Planter" with his wife (Marie Bushnell, aged 26) and daughter Elizabeth (Martha (sic) Bushnell, aged 1). It is likely that his brothers were with them as his household in 1636 consisted of five. Francis BUSHNELL, Jr. was a carpenter and millwright and had charge of the Town mill at Guilford, after the death of Thomas Norton in 1648. About the same time, his name appears among those who took lands at Oyster River quarter in Saybrook. He remained, however, at Guilford some time longer, making arrangements meanwhile for the transfer of his family to Saybrook. In 1662, he was at Saybrook, where he continued to reside until his death. He built the corn mill at Oyster River, the first erected in Saybrook. The town of Saybrook gave him a farm, on condition of keeping up the mill for the benefit of the town. After his death, the farm went to his son-in-law Samuel JONES. It remained a long time after in his family. His home lot contained about five acres and was near his father's. He also owned land at the Point of Rocks, and conveyed all his real estate property in Guilford to his son-in-law, William JOHNSON, when he left Guilford.
