Christian Turell1,2

b. 17 December 1688
Father*Samuel Turell3 b. 14 Jun 1659
Mother*Lydia Stoddard3 b. 27 Mar 1660
Birth*17 December 1688Christian Turell was born on 17 December 1688 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).4
Relationship Note*Christian Turell and Christopher Turell may have been twins.5
Marriage*9 April 1717She married Samuel Bass on 9 April 1717 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England). They were married by the Presbyterian Reverend Mr. John Webb.2
Religion*10 November 1717Christian (Turell) Bass was admitted to full communion on 10 November 1717 at Old South Church, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).6
(Heir) Will9 November 1776The children of Christian Bass, described as his beloved sister, deceased, were named as beneficiaries of the Reverend Ebenezer Turell in his will dated 9 November 1776 in Medford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). Turell's will gave Christian (Turell) Bass's children and their heirs the other one-half part of his real and personal estate (not already disposed of in his will) to be equally divided among them.1
(Sister) Probate Dispute2 March 1780 On 2 March 1780, Nathaniel Thayer, Cornelius Thayer, Samuel Bass, William Andrews, Deborah (Thayer) Whitworth, Hannah (Thayer) Abbott, Christian (Bass) Armstrong, Mary Thayer, Sarah (Thayer) White and Rebecca (Bass) Thomas Fowle, all of Boston and residual legatees resulting from the will of the Reverend Ebenezer Turell, submitted a document to the court addressing their concerns regarding the inequities between the value of silver and gold compared with the value of Continental currency, which had gone through several changes and devaluations during and after the Revolutionary War. In 1780, paper money in the new United States, called Continentals, was worth only about 1/40th of its face value. The document stated their understanding that Simon Tufts Esq. of Medford, as Executor to the last will and testament of Ebenezer Turell, late of Medford, Clerk, was entitled by the will to a legacy of £20, and was by virtue of his Executorship in possession of a sum of silver and gold coin, which according to a law of Massachusetts for regulating the value of silver and god coin, amounted to £503, 15s, 6p. Their petition went on to state that a dispute had arisen between the Executor Simon and several of the legatees regarding whether their legacies ought to be paid in silver and gold or in the present currency of the state. The petition's subscribers recommended that the Executor pay them 2/3 of their legacies in silver and gold, after deducting 1/2 of his own legacy, and that the Executor's other half be paid to himself in paper money. The petition went on to recommend that the £150 allowed the Executor for all his services in settling the estate be paid in paper money. The petition's subscribers, all residual legatees as the children, or their heirs, of Lydia (Turell) Thayer and Christian (Turell) Bass, both of whom were deceased sisters of the late Reverend Turell, agreed to be obligated to the court for the sum of £100,000 in lawful money of the state as protection for the Executor. Their document stated that in the case any debts owed to the estate were recovered which would increase the assets owed to the Executor, they would refund their prorated parts of those debts on the condition that their obligation of £100,000 to the court be voided and of no effect. Their petition concluded with the statement that should they fail to keep their agreement, their obligation would remain in full force and effect.1

Daniel Turell1

d. before 2 January 1702/3
Father*Daniel Turell Jr.1 b. 16 Aug 1646, d. 16 Feb 1708/9
Mother*Hannah Barrell1 b. 23 Apr 1651
Birth*Daniel Turell was born in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England), probably several years before his baptism, since he and his two older brothers were all baptized at the same time.1
Baptism30 April 1693He was baptized with brothers Joseph and John on 30 April 1693 at Second Church, Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).1
Probate*January 1702/3 In January 1702/3 Joseph Turell petitioned the Suffolk County Probate Court, Boston, stating that his brother Daniel Turell Jr. Late of Boston, surgeon, had died intestate on board the ship Johnson, a frigate, Samuel White, Commander, in her late voyage from Barbados to New England. The document said that Daniel's wages and estate belong to Joseph, being his only brother and heir. He requested that administration be granted to their father, Mr. Daniel Turell, anchorsmith. On 2 Jan 1702/03, Daniel Turell, anchorsmith, posted a £100 bond and on the same date administration was granted to Daniel Turell, anchorsmith, for his son Joseph only heir to Joseph's brother Daniel.2
Death*before 2 January 1702/3He died at sea, probably a teenager, before 2 January 1702/3.1
Research Notes* The Barrell source further explained in a footnote that although Daniel seems young to have been a surgeon at 16 or 17, and Joseph seems young to have made a petition, the fact that their sister Mary was not baptized with them in 1693 suggests that they were younger than she. But it is possible that Daniel and/or Joseph were older than Mary, and that she was baptized separately (or not at all). If that was the case, then Daniel may have been born about 1676 or 1679 and Joseph may have been born about 1685.1
