  • Notes 
    • According to Mayflower Families in Progress: William Brewster (citation details below), she probably died in Rochester, Massachusetts, and her marriage to Savory Clifton probably took place in Sandwich around 1689.

      "On 10 Apr 1725, (her mother) 'Patience Burge of Rochester, widow of Joseph Burge,' acquitted and discharged to (her son) Benjamin Burge, yeoman, and (her daughter) Dorothy, the wife of Clifton Savory, 'my right in a share of land in Middleboro, which was formerly in the right of Governor Prence...I am heir to a part of the same.'" [Mayflower Families in Progress: William Brewster, citation details below.]
