[NEHGR ?:?] RB must have moved from Norwich to Norwalk perhaps aobut 1656 as his will dated 1 December 1659 was made there and witnessed by Alice Marvin of Norwalk. Inventory was taken 17 July 1660 recorded at Hartford (Probate Records II:146-7).
Note: There is a great deal of disagreement about the lineage of Richard and the relationships of various Francis Bushnells. WTR Marvin seems to have the most reasoned approach (or at least seems o try to have the most details available for his reasoning and disagrees with Smyth in his article in NEHGR 53. The details below are by and large from the summary in Marvin's article from NEHGR 52:446-448.
[Hale/House 712-715] lists Richard Bushnell as the son of Francis and Ferris (Quynell) Bushnell.
[Bushnell 6] Came to NE probably with his father in the spring of 1639, lived in Guilford, but later settled in Saybrook, where he died in 1658, aged 35 years.

[NEHGR 53:208] FBs will was proved 13 October 1646. Probably signed the plantation covenant. Hasd a home lot of three acres in Guilford having John Hoadley, William Dudley and Thomas Jordan as neighbors.
[Bushnell 1] First mention of his found in the record of his first marriage in Horsham in 1605 and continues to be mentioned there until 1635, after which year Bushnells completely disappear from the registers. So it is likely that likely taht FB was not of Sussex ancestry and that he and his children moved from the county between 1635 and 1641. FB migrated to NE in the spring of 1639 and was one of the founders that year of Guilford Conn, where he died in 1646, his will having been proved on 13 October 1646. Some of his children had preceded him in emigrating to America. FB and FQ had 11 children: Edmund, 1606; Francis, 1608/9; William, 1610/11; Stephen, 1612/3; John, 1615; Thomas, 1617; Mary, 1618; Rebecca, 1621; Richard, 1623; Sarah, 1625; and Elizabeth 1627/8. FB married 2) at Horsham, 2 June 1629, Joane Kinward, who was buried there 21 June 1631 leaving no issue. His is said to have married 3) Rebecca --, but there is no record of this marriage.
