I am from the Bouley's in Connecticut. However, I have been able to trace my family tree back to France. The first generation Bouley that I was able to trace to my Family Tree was Robert Bouley 1630 - 1707. There are several spellings of the name Bouley. From what I can gather in France it was spelled "Boulay" then when the settled in Canada it changed to "Boulet" and when they came to the States it changed again to "Bouley". I will be more then happy to make a printout of my family tree and send it to you. This may assist you in tracing you line.
