Note that the book is a biography of Paul Bushell. So much information about the Bushell family has been unearthed that a separate book has been drafted covering the lives of the ten children born to Paul Bushell and his second wife Isabella Brown, and her son William Brown. Claims of some earlier researchers have been disproved - Paul had no children with Jane Sharp, but raised one foster child with her, Isabella Jane Forrester. Forrester descendants will find much to interest them in the Bushell book.
