Over the years, Bonylloe was spelled Bonally, Bonelly, Bonallo, Bonalo, Bonaly, Bonnella, Bonela, Bonello and many more.

Migration of the Bonylloe family to the New World and Oceana
Opportunity and land greeted those who made it all the way. Some had the opportunity to solidify their new freedom by fighting in the American War of Independence, while others went or stayed north as United Empire Loyalists. Recently, the ancestors of those brave settlers have been able to recover much of their heritage through Clan societies and other patriotic organizations. A thorough examination of passenger and immigration lists has disclosed evidence of many early immigrants of the name Bonylloe: Alexander Bonaley who settled in Virginia in 1624.
