About John Burwell

BURWELL

JOHN BURWELL (Lot 44) had three sons, Zachariah, Ephraim and Nathan, and the first two later moved to Newark. In 1663, Zachariah married Elizabeth Baldwin and Savage's note on him states that "from the great host of that name, I am unable to select a father for her". But his note on Richard Baldwin (see above) states that Elizabeth was Richard's daughter, baptised 1644. That being the case, the wives of ZACHARIAH BURWELL and of SAMUEL RIGGS, the middle son of EDWARD RIGGS SGT, were sisters. Elizabeth's sister Temperance married NATHAN BURWELL, the brother of Ephraim and Zachariah.

JOHN BURWELL (16__-1649) was from Herts Co., but dying so early (Aug. 17, 1649), Milford records do not contain much information concerning him. He had five sons and a daughter Elizabeth, b. 1647. His wife Alice, d. Dec. 29, 1649. A line of ancestry to English Lords and members of the Royal family is said to be found in this family.

John Burwell came from Hertsfordshire, England first to Roxbury, MA, then to Wethersfield, CT. He settled Milford in 1639. Reference: Families of Early Milford, CT, by Susan Abbott

John Burwell came with his wife, my ancestor, ALICE HEATH, to America in 1637 with the Eaton-Davenport-Prudden part and was an original planter of Wepawaug (Milford). He was the owner of "Burwell Farms" which stayed in the family for many years. ALICE HEATH, whom he married on June 24, 1635, was his third wife. After his death, she married my ancestor, JOSEPH PECK.
