I am descended from a JAMES BURHYTE who settled in Remsen, NY.I'll include below the info I have about him.I do want to find out his parents, where he came from etc., but haven't gotten farther as yet.Hope this helps.
The History of Remsen 1789-1898 includes the following:
James Beaurhyte* settled in Remsen village at an early day.He built a house on Main Street just north of the lane which leads to the steam mill, where he lived for many years.His children were Catherine, who married a Mr. Crosby; Ambrose of Willow Vale, NY; James, who died October 14, 1842, aged twenty one years; Augustus, and Delos.* also written as Burhyte
Also from the History of Remsen Page 31:
Continuing south from the Mitchell hotel, the first building was the house of James Beaurhyte, which is still a landmark of the village, occupying a site on the north corner of the lane leading to Steam Mill.
In the Saratoga Springs Census, James is listed as age 78 and was collecting pension.
