Are you referring to THE John BUNYAN (1628-1688), author of "Pilgrim's Progress?" If so, is the will an original or a copy. If it is an original, you have a very valuable document from both a family and a historical perspective.
I cannot tell you how he connects to your other lines, but I am researching due to the surname of my grandmother and great-grandfather, BUNYON. Oral tradition in our family says that our line goes back to John, but not one shred of evidence yet to support any claims.
If the will is that of John in his own handwriting, even if a copy, I would be enormously interested in a copy of it.
Thanks.
