Surnames: Dwinal, Dunnel, Dwinell, Duinnel
While doing some research the other day I came across this list, compiled by H. G. Dunnel from the records of the Old Church in Topsfield. This is from a book kept by Rev. Joseph Capen who became the pastor in 1684. The pertinent parts of this for our purposes are the following:
Thomas Perkins Deacon d d May 7, 1686
Daniel Hovey
Michael Duinnel Junr
Michael Dunnels Wife
Hannah W. of Michael Dunnell
Then there is a "List of males now belonging to the Church in Topsfield, May 18, 1751"
Michael Duinnel

There is a later list which is not dated which includes this entry:
Amos Duinell

Also found some records from Poland, Maine "Early Vital Records of" these include the family of Amos Dwinal and Lydea his wife. It shows the following births:
Elisabeth b. 30 Sep 1757
Ruth b. 30 Dec 1759
Aaron b. 10 Aug 1762
Amos b. 31 May 1764
Simeon b. 12 Aug 1766
Mary b. 2 Apr 1769
Lucy b. 10 Jun 1771
Rufus b. 23 May 1773

Aaron Dwinal and Susanna his wife shows the following:
susannah b. 2 Feb 1787
Ruth b. 18 Mar 1788
Sally b. 30 Apr 1790
Aaron b. 11 Dec 1791
Simeon b 30 Dec 1795

I hope this will prove helpful to someone.
