Maxwell or Maxfell confusion in Essex Co, New Jersey 1700s

Posted: 18 Jun 2013 8:17PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Maxwell, Maxfell, Badgley
I have been doing research based on two genelogical books with family histories but no sources that provide the marriage date between William Maxwell and Polly Mary Badgley in New Jersey. Just recently I ran across a newly published book of church records that lists William as Maxfell rather than Maxwell. Every listing in the transcribed church records book for people I had as Maxwell, this author has as Maxfell. I went back to the New Jersey Archive indexes and find a mixture of references for Maxfell, Maxwell, and Maxfield - sometimes used interchangably in the same excerpt. Since then I have tried to find other sources that might clarify. Has anyone run into the use of Maxfell as an alternate spelling for Maxwell - anyplace?? I have not found any message boards for Maxfells. Any help appreciated.
