Dr. Michael Dwinnell - 1670 to 1770

Dr. Michael's parents were Michael and Mary Dwinnell in Topsfield, Essex County, MA. It was passed through generations that he had been married seven times though only five are proven. It is unknown how he came to be a physician but the first designation was found in 1724.

On March 1, 1691/2, he was on duty at the Ipswitch county jail to overlook Sarah Good accused of witchcraft.
