Binney; but no evidence appears. The fam. of two syl. was early at
the same town, and it may be that some ambitious possessor of the
shorter name may have stretch. it.

    BUNNILL, BENJAMIN, New Haven, took o. of fidel, 7 Apr.
1657, was, s. of William, and a propr. 1685, had eleven ch. names

Aug. 1653, by w. Ann, d. of Benjamin Wilmot, wh. in his will of
7 Aug. 1669, speaks of the four ch. of his d. as heirs of pt. of his
small est. so that it may be inf. that both d. and h. with one of the
ch. were d.

    BURBANK, CALEB, Rowley 1691, may have been s. of John. JOHN,
Rowley, freem. 13 May 1640, in his will of 5 Apr. 1681 (as Coffin finds,
Geneal. Reg. VI. 245), names w. Jemima, ch. John, Caleb, and Lydia.

of Nathaniel Merrill, rem. a. 1680 with sev. ch. to Suffield, where his w.
d. 1690; and tho. he had sec. and third w. yet no more ch. The name
is that neighb. is com. JOSEPH, came, 1635, in the Abigail from London,
aged 24, when at the custom ho. it was writ. Borebancke; but where he
sat down is unkn.

    BURBEEN, JOHN, Woburn, a tailor, came from Scotland, it is said, m.
16 Apr. 1660, Sarah Gould, had Mary, b. 2 July 1661; John, 9 Aug.
1663; James, 15 May 1668; and perhaps no more, for his w. d. 14 May
1670. He d. 8 Jan. 1714. Joseph, and Paul, gr. at H. C. of the yrs.
1731 and 1743, liv. to advanc. age, yet prob. this name is extinct in N. E.

    BURCHAM, EDWARD, Lynn, 1636, frem. 14 Mar. 1639, was clk.
of the writs 1645, went home 1656, and I kn. not whether he came back.
His d. Frances m. 8 June 1660, Isaac Willy. Twice in Hist. Coll. of the Essex
Inst. I. pp. 5 and 10, this name is giv. Burthum, and this error is more observa.
on account of the gen. accura. of Mr. Patch. Often the letter c in the old engross.
hand resembles our modern t. Suspicion aris. also, that the same man may be
passing under the name of Beacham, wh. see.

    BURCHARD or BURCHER, EDWARD, Plymouth, came in the Ann,

had Henry, b. 3 Oct. foll. and d. 20 Sept. 1721, aged 64. The s. foll. the
same profess. but I kn. no more of him.
