About Peter Burlingham


Peter Burlingham's son Christopher was a graduate of Caius and Gonville college in Cambridge University. In alumni histories he is described as the father of Christopher (by Venn and the Caius history page 93) as having been a carpenter of medium fortune who lived at Brinton. Peter's will calls him a husbandman. The 1664 visitation confirms (surprisingly) that Peter's will (ANW, will register, Bastard, fo. 448 1599-1601 with the spelling "Birlingham") was dated May 24, 1598 and proved on April 17, 1599. But this is a will from Horsford, which is not so close to Brinton and Thornage, but near Norwich. The will confirms that Peter had connections to both Horsford and Brinton, but it is in the latter place that he had his children baptised. The will says he wanted to be buried in the church in Horsford, and he donated 3d 4s for reparations there, and 5s to the poor of the town to be distributed at his burial.

The relevant first Brinton parish register is scanned online at the familysearch website and also transcribed on FreeREG. It mentions a marriage, 25 January 1561/2 in Brinton, the same year as Peter's first child, between a Burlingham whose first name is hard to read, and one Dorothy Bale. For the missing name, FreeREG attempts "*inerst". Actually by looking at handwriting in the register (for example the surname Marret or Marrot) it says "Pierrot" or "Parrot" which was a dimunitive of "Peter" in this period. So Peter's wife was named Dorothy Bale.


In 2014 a version of the above was made by descendant Andrew Lancaster,
