Israel Dwinnell was born in Boxford, Essex County, Massachusetts about 1765. He was the 8th child of Benjamin Dwinnell and Mary Estey. He may have been named for his cousin, Israel who died a few years earlier in the French and Indian War. He was a mason.

He married Eunice Davis on November 27, 1787 in Keene, New Hampshire. Their children and life together are described in detail in the section on Israel and Eunice Dwinnell.
