About Edward Burt


After the early death of her first husband, Ann (Holland) Bassett married Hugh Burt. The marriage took place sometime after 3 October 1628, the day of burial of Ursellah Burt, Hugh's first wife. Hugh and Ann Burt, with their two sons and Ann's stepson William Bassett, emigrated to Massachusetts aboard the Abigail. They sailed from Plymouth, England on 4 June 1635 with about 220 passengers aboard, along with livestock. The Abigail arrived in Boston about 8 October 1635 with smallpox aboard. Richard Hackwell, master of the Abigail, recorded on the passenger list:

  • Hugh Burt, [age] 35 [of] Dorking, Co. Surrey, [intends to live at] Lynn (MA)
  • Mrs. Anne Burt [age] 32
  • Hugh Burt [age] 15
  • Edward Burt [age] 8
  • William Bassett [age 9], son of Mrs. Burt by a previous marriage
