First Generation in the New World

1. ROBERT¹ BURGES, was born, presumably in Scotland and died after 1672 in Massachusetts.

Biography: May be the Robert Burges/Burgess who marries, 1st, at Lynn, Massachusetts by 1669, SARAH (_____), she dies 1669 and marries 2nd, at Lynn, on 13 Apr 1671, SARAH HULL, the daughter of Captain Tristram Hull. She was born in March 1650, which would make a huge difference in ages if he was born in 1621. He appears in Lin in 1652:

29 Jun 1652, History of Lynn, MA at Archives, page 233.

In the will for Robert Burges who died 6 may 1700 he mentions his wife Sarah and his daughter Elizabeth Edmons. So the Elizabeth Burges below must be his daughter. If she marries in 1685, she must be the daughter of his first marriage before 1669. Most girls married about 21 years. That would make her birth date around 1664.
