  • Notes 
    • Or Burge, Burgess. Seen in Sandwich 1637. Savage calls him "of the chief men" in that place, noting that was was "rep. 1646 and after."

      His gravestone in the Sandwich Old Town Cemetery say he died 13 Feb 1685, not 23 Feb, but this stone is a replacement erected in 1917 by Burges/Burgess descendants. Contemporary Plymouth colony records give the 23 Feb date.
