Town of Boonville, Oneida County, New York, and villages within its boundary. 1860.

BOONVILLE -- [Named from Gerrit Boon, agent of the Holland Land Co., who made the first settlement. In early times it was called "Boon's Upper Settlement."] was formed from Leyden, (Lewis co.,) March 28, 1805. Ava was taken off in 1846. It lies on the N. border of the co., E. of the center. Its surface is hilly, broken upland 800 to 1,000 ft. above the canal at Rome. Black River flows through the N.E. part, and Lansing Kil rises near the center and flows S. to the Mohawk. Its soil is clayey loam, in many places thickly covered with boulders and often inclining to sand. Near the village are immense deposits of drift. Its E. border extends into the great forest, and presents the meager, sandy soil and naked rocks peculiar to that region. There is a gas spring one and a half mile W. of the village, and a sulphur spring one and a half miles south. The later has acquired some local celebrity.

BOONVILLE, (p.v.,) in the N.W. part, was incorp. in 1855. It contains 3 churches, a printing office, several manufactories, and 1,000 inhabitants. It is the present N. terminus of the Black River & Utica R.R. It is on the summit level of the Black River Canal, and has a large trade with the country N., W., and E.

Notes for Emma Stella WINCHELL
There seems to be evidence, albeit in some cases circumstantial, that the various branches of the Wincoll and Winchell families trace back to the neighbourhood of Little Waldingfield in the English county of Suffolk.

The variant spellings of the surname are discussed in the book and a common ancestry is attributed to a John Wyncoll, clothier, of Little Waldingfield, whose will survives from 1521. "Clothier" is a term applied to a caste of Flemish manufacturers of particularly fine cloth who became established in Suffolk and Essex at the invitation of Edward III. Some sample accounts attesting to the wealth generated from that trade are published in the recent history of "The Isles" by Norman Davies (MacMillan 1999).

Earlier instances of the name exist, although proof of direct lineage is more difficult. The first mention is in the "Calendar of Patent Rolls" for the reign of Edward III where one Ricus de Wynkle is described as Confessor Regis. It is suggested that this royal confessor may have accompanied Edward's spouse, Queen Philippa of Hainault, from her Flemish home to the English court in around 1328.

The Encyclopaedia Britannica entry for Philippa of Hainault mentions that her Chaplain was instrumental in the foundation of Queen's College at Oxford University. Is anyone able to confirm whether this might be the same Ricus de Wynkle?
