The probable brother of the emigrant John Bigelow died in 1656,
leaving a will that mentioned his brother John Beasly [sic] in New
England and no other male-line relations. The testator's name was
Francis Beagely [sic], also a blacksmith. (See NEHGR 63/363.) The
identification of John the emigrant rests on an affidavit by a
clergyman who had known him before emigration. Note: the reports
of his baptism at Wrentham give the name as Baguley. I'd say that
any name you find in Wrentham containing B-g-l plus vowels of any
kind would be a candidate for DNA comparison.
