About Seaborn Burt

Seaborn was born at sea, on the return of his parents from captivity in Canada, whither they were carried by the French and Indians, after the destruction of Deerfield, Mass. on Feb 29, 1704.


In June 1706, the Burt family was part of a prisoner exchange and they arrived in Boston with John Sheldon on Aug. 2, 1706. Judge Sewall, sending a letter to Mr. Williams who was still a captive, said: "It was a great Blessing to see Mr. Willard baptize Ebenezer Hinsdale and Seaborn Burt, two little Sons born on the passage."


He sold his farm in Ridgefield to his brother Daniel and about 1756 left for parts unknown.


Birth date recorded as 04 July 1706, Ridgefield Township, Fairfield, Connecticut, Vol. lr1, p. 199.

Children (need to be verified): James Burt, Benjamin Burt, Joshua Burt, Mary Burt, Susannah Burt, David Burt, Theophilus Burt, Miles Burt, Thankful Burt
