from History of the Buell Family in England
Timothy Buell, of Hebron, Conn., and Elizabethtown [now Brockville], Canada, first child of Timothy Buell, of Lebanon and Marlborough, Conn....
The common ancestor of the Buells in Canada was Timothy Buell. He was formerly of Hebron (now Marlborough), Connecticut. From thence he emigrated to the neighborhood of Fort Ann or Fort Miller, on the Hudson River, where he was at the commencement of the Revolutionary War, and held the militia rank of Major.
Being unwilling to take up arms on either side, he was looked upon as inimical to the cause espoused by the Colonists and was much harrassed by them. This operated on the feelings of his eldest son William, then young, and he espoused the cause of the Mother Country, came to Canada and afterwards assisted his father and the younger branches of the family to join him.
Timothy Buell, the head of the family in this province, was for a time a pensioner, and also held some situation in the Quartermaster's Department in the British Forces. At the close of the war, after residing a couple of years at Lachine, in Lower Canada, he emigrated with many others to the Township of Elizabethtown in Upper Canada, where he obtained lands from the Government, and died a few years after, aged about 56.
He was married at Marlborough, Conn., about 1751 to Mercy Peters. She was sister of the Rev. Samuel Peters, who published a Memoir of the Peters Family.
