I am researching my husbands Greatgreatgrandfather, Joseph Purnell. He was born Feb 9 1810 in Bristol England. His name was Joseph Parnell. He immigrated to Ontario Canada. He married Hanna Wheeler. They had 10 children. Christina, Ester, Samuel, Elizabeth, Elijah, Benjamin, Joshua, hanna, Robert and Martha. Story has it that Elijah shamed the family so they changed there last name to Purnell. Joseph's fathers name was Joseph. Any information on this family in England would be greatly appreciated.
