I am thinking were at the same end. Best I have found regarding William Merrill is the following information:

William MERRILL (b 1758) was living at Lot 15 according to the Account of the Settlers of Colonel Spray's Land on the River St. John - taken in April 1786. (Age 28) The land was On the Tongue of Interval below Jemseg Creek
William moved to Yarmouth 1806 from New Brunswick and was stated:
• Served England in the American War
• migrated from New Brunswick to Ontario at age 48
• Petitioned for land dated 1818
Merrill, William (c. 1750-) with his wife and family went in the 1783 Loyalist exodus from New York to New Brunswick, then settled in Charlotteville Township, Norfolk County by 1806. Includes three generations of descendants in Norfolk, Elgin and Oxford Counties, and in Michigan. Descendant surnames included: Monk, Pelton, Baldwin. (according to Long Point Settlers)
William Merrill, lot 69, STRE, Yarmouth, 200 acres, South Talbot Road by Order in Council, Feb. 16, 1811
Merrill, William, War of 1812 Claims
William Merrill, (lease to) Yarmouth, Oct. 5, 1818; George Ryerson, Charlotteville, is the surety Lot 24, Concession 7
William Merrill and George Ryerson, bond for lease, Dec. 7, 1818; witnessed by William Ryerson, and David Merrill (son?)
June 20, 1834 old Mr. MERRILL of old age Possibly William

I have an ancestor Jarvis Merrill b. 1809 (or by some account 1819) who is my Gr gr gr Grandfather. The best guess I have surmised is that James, Jarvis, and Joseph Merrill (Merrell) may all be sons of William.
