In The Burgess History Tree, p. 73, Paul Burgess states (without citing his source) that John was born 10 February 1627/28 in Truro, Cornwall, England. We have seen no evidence that places our Burgess family in Cornwall or any evidence of the birth dates of any of Thomas and Dorothy's children, other than Elizabeth (based on her age at death). He died in 1701 in Yarmouth, Barnstable County, Massachusetts. He married Mary Worden on 8 September 1657 in Sandwich, Barnstable County, Massachusetts. Mary was born 10 February 1638/39. She died in 1723. Helen Dunton Gilchrest, in "The Ancestors and Descendants of Robert Franklin Dunton of Belfast, Maine," p. 28, identifies without documentation the wife of Peter Worden, Jr. as Mary Sears: "Mary Sears Worden was probably related to Richard Sears, the Pilgrim, but she is not listed as one of his children. She may have been his sister. The Worden property adjoined that of Richard Sears. Mary's will was witnessed by two of Richard's sons. The inventory was taken by another of his sons."
