Bonfild/ Bonfield 1600's
Posted by: Debra Bunnell (ID *****2211) Date: July 23, 2006 at 20:44:49
  of 604

OLD BURIAL HILL, MARBLEHEAD, NEW ENGLAND

Rebekah Bonfild - 1687 - Her headstone is the first upright one along the path. It's shorter than most headstones. Dated 1687, it's also one of the earliest.

The picture of the headstone on this site wasn't completely readable. Here's what I got: HERE LYE REBEKAH GEORGE BONFILD IS WIFE WHO DID MUCH GOOD IN HER LIFE WHO DYED 30 OF APRIL (?) AGED (?) YEARS

Bonfield, George 1690/1691 - Between the paths- Row 29. Among headstones of this time its not uncommon to find spelling differences for the last names of members of the same family. George's headstone has "Bonfield" inscribed in the next row, just after the path from Orne Street is Rebekah's headstone, which has "Bonfild" as the last name.
