My Bushell Connections

My Bushell Connections

By Michael W. Caughey

My great grandfather John Bushell was living at Oakfield, Co. Fermanagh, Ireland when my grandmother Mary Jane Bushell was born there on 18 December 1865. She died at Annalore Street, Clones, Co. Monaghan, Ireland on 6 February 1922. Mary Jane married Johnson Purdy. Both are buried in Clones.

John Bushell married Christine Devlin.

An Indenture was made on 12 December 1780 between Sir Arthur Brooke of Coleborough, Co. Fermanagh and Samuel Bushell of Trasna, Co. Fermanagh. This was for a farm app. 18 acres. Also to son John, aged seven years. Also to daughter Catherine, aged ten years. Rent #7.12.3 yearly, payable in May and November. I wonder if there is a family connection here?
