I have information on early Bells who came to America from Fifeshire, Scotland: Ninian from Largo (related, I think, to my direct line), came after 1650; James (bap. 05 Feb 1652 at St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland), came to Maryland about 1688; m. Sarah Pearce, d. 1725 w/will; James' brothers: William (bap. 22 Aug 1647), Alexander (1649-1744), Andro (bap.28 Mar 1655), all sons of Alexander Bell and Margaret Ramsey (m. 21 May 1646 at St Andrews Church, Fifeshire.)This info. is from The Bells of St. Andrews and St. Leonards Parish, a Compilation of Birth, Marriage, Death, and Other Records 1627 to 1828, a reprint (from 1917 1st pub.) compiled by Alexander Graham Bell from research by Walter MacLeod, Scottish researcher.I obtained my copy from the Bell Family Association of the United States several years ago. There are a lot of Bells in this 49 p. booklet, probably all related in one way or another! Incidentally, some changed their surname to Beall, but only after arriving in America.
