About Bridget Bucke

Additional Curator's notes:

While many sources will list Bridget Bucke as the daughter of Rev. Richard Bucke, the math doesn't work. Thomas would have been a father at 13 and would not have become a scholarship student of divinity at Cambridge. It is more likely that she was a sibling or cousin, and that she became his ward at some point before the family left for Virginia Colony. Until more concrete material becomes known, I have listed Bridget as the sister (and not the daughter) of Rev. Bucke.

If Bridget Bucke married John Burrowes in February, 1624 and John was murdered in 1628, they could not have had the numerous children attributed to them in various web trees. The most likely offspring of this marriage is John Burris, commonly called Jr., who died in 1705. There may have been others, but no proof has been found.

This Bridget Bucke is not the same person as Bridget, the second wife of Rev. Bucke. The two are often confused.

[Samuel BURRUS_3129437.FTW] from Raymond C Mays--Birthdates for Richard and Bridgett don't quite make sense. Could they have been siblings or cousins? Place of birth matches residence of Elizabeth Brown's parents, so there appears to be some connection Immigration: 1610 to Virginia on ship, "Sea Venture"
