I see this thread happened 10 yrs. ago, and I haven't looked at the old postings. But, I just checked the census pages, the WETHERELL name does not show up in 1790 in MA. It does show up in 1800. There were 5 households in Bristol County, but no Merton. There was one household in Plymouth County.
In 1810 there was only the one household in Plymouth Co. In 1820, there were now 6 households in Worcester County, again no Merton.
In 1820 there were 2 households with the WETHEREL spelling. In 1810 6 households in Worcester County. In 1800 there were 4 households in MA with that spelling.
In 1800 there were 19 people with the WITHERELL spelling in MA, most in Bristol County. In 1810, 21 homes. In 1820, there were 30.
In 1820, there were 7 with the WITHEREL spelling. In 1810, 8. In 1800, 2.
That's all I'll offer this morning.
