The New England Burgess Family
During the early 1630's Burgesses settled in Virginia and Plymouth Colony. William Burgess went to Virginia and Thomas Burgess went to Massachusetts.As far as I can determine there has been no link between the two families established. Rumor has both families from Truro, Cornwall, England but I have not found any documented information on that except hearsay.
So who were the New Burgesses? Most New England Burgess' trace their family back to Thomas and Dorothy Burgess who arrived around 1630 in Massachusetts. Want to know more about them?
Search here for family members. This is an attempt to combine information from many people. If you find any additions or clarifications, please let me know.
Look here for researchers searching for the same line. The more people who help each other the more information that will be available. I am trying to set this up by the children of Thomas and Dorothy Burgess.
There are many people researching the William Burgess family from the South. Here is a list of researchers for there.
