Notes and Queries: Axtell

AXTELL. – I communicated to the REGISTER for April, 1868, some “Notes on the AXTELL Family of Mass.,” referring only to those of Sudbury and Marlborough.  I have since found persons of the same surname, and all the same male Christian names in Bristol County in the first half of the last century.  At Taunton is the will of Daniel AXTELL, of Dighton, 1735-6, which mentions his wife Thankful, sons Daniel, William, Henry, Samuel, Ebenezer, and Thomas, dau. Elizabeth, wife of Thomas BART, daus. Rebecca, Hannah and Thankful.  The son Daniel, of Berkeley, made his will 1761, mentioning wife Phebe, only son Daniel, daus. Thankful and Elizabeth.

I write this now to ask if any relationship is known to exist between the two families, and shall be glad to receive information from any person connected with either of them or interested in their history. – I am myself descended from the first Thomas of Sudbury, and wish to learn all I can concerning all of the name here. – Is it possible that Daniel AXTELL returned from South Carolina, and settled at Dighton?
