Capt Richard Bushnell
Birth: Sep., 1652
Norwalk
Middlesex County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Aug. 27, 1727
Norwich
New London County

Richard was the son of Richard and Mary (Marvin) Bushnell. On Dec. 7, 1672, he married Elizabeth Adgate, daughter of Thomas. Elizabeth was family, since his mother married Thomas Adgate after his father died. (Elizabeth was a daughter of Thomas by his first wife, so there was no blood relationship.)

Their children were:
Anne, w. William Hyde.
Caleb, h. Anne Leffingwell
Benajah, h. Zerviah Leffingwell
Elizabeh, w. Jabez Hyde
