yet not driv. away, by w. Ann had Thomas, b. 1 Apr. 1637, d. very
soon; Elisha, bapt. 3 Feb. 1639; Ezekiel, b. 25 Mar. 1641; Joseph,
and Benjamin, tw. b. 21 Apr. 1643, both d. soon, but Joseph was bapt.
30 of that mo.; Hannah, 4 May 1645, "a. 20 days old;" and prob.
others. At Braintree he had lot, 1639, for five heads, so that he must
have had two serv. of apprent. But he went home with w. and ch. after
mak. his will 15 Oct. 1652, wh. was pro. here 30 Apr. 1657. ROBERT,
Lynn, m. a. 1650, Hannah, d. of William Witter, if we obey the authority
of Coffin in Geneal. Reg. VI. 245, or Hist. Coll. of Essex
Inst. I. 1659; but both names are wrong there, Witter means Winter,
and Burden stands for Burditt, wh. see. Greater mistakes may be
seen in other copies from early rec. by other collectors. WILLIAM, Duxbury, or
Marshfield, is well seen in Barden.

    BURDICK or BURDICT, BENJAMIN, Westerly, s. of Robert of the
same, in his will of 25 Spr. 1736, names w. Jane, and s. Peter, Benjamin,
John, David, William, Elisha, ds. Mary Lewis, and Rachel Sisson.
ROBERT, Newport, made freem. 22 May 1655; rem. to Westerly bef.
1661, m. Ruth d. of Samuel Hubbard of N. had Robert, Hubbard,
Thomas, Benjamin, and Samuel, beside Naomi, wh. m. Jonathan Rogers;
Tacy, wh. m. Joseph Maxon; Ruth, wh. m. John Phillips; and Deborah,
wh. m. Joseph Crandall; and d. 1692. THOMAS, Westerly 1680, s. of
Robert. This name is oft. confound. with Burditt.

    BURDITT or BURDETT, GEORGE, Salem 1635, came from Yarmouth
Co. Norfk. where by pop. elect. he had preach. two yrs. but leav. w. and
childr. at home in distress, was in gr. esteem at S. freem. 2 Sept. 1635,
had gr. of ld. and preach. there near two yrs. and in 1637 or 8, went to
Dover, there had much quarrel, and thence to York, and was forced to
go home at last. Winthrop is large in reprobat. of him, Hubbard is
strong; and the crim. proceed. of Cts. under Gorges' governm. for adultery
and other charges, make it plain that N. E. was not the right place
for him. ROBERT, Malden, m. Nov. 1653, Hannah Winter, had Thomas,
b. Sept. 1655; Hannah, Nov. 1656; Joseph; Mary; Sarah; and
Ruth, in May 1666; and he d. 16 June of next yr. by will of the same
day ment. the w. and ch. and provid. also for ano unb. THOMAS, Malden,
eldest s. of the preced. by w. Hannah had Thomas, b. 13 Jan. 1683;
Elizabeth 19 Aug. 1686, d. young; Elizabeth again, 28 Aug. 1688; and by w.
Elizabeth had Mary, 25 Dec. 1690; and John, 8 May 1693. His w. d. 26
Jan. 1718, aged a. 65, and he d. 20 Jan. 1729, in 74th yr. by gr.stone.

    BURDSALL, HENRY, Salem, freem. 2 May 1638, d. 1651. Perhaps
the name is Burchal in the Essex Inst. Hist. Coll. I. 39; and prob. he
was f. of that Judith B. wh. m. Henry Cooke of S. June 1639.

    BURDSIE, the same as Birdseye; and here I supply some deficiency in
that article. The contr. of m. with Alice, wid. of Henry Tomlinson, to wh.
in his will JOHN B. refers, was of 8 Oct. 1688. He d. 4 Apr. 1690, aged 74.
By his first w. Phillis he had John, b. at Stratford, Mar. 1641, and
