Re: Family of Michael Burnham, Hartford CT, 1705-1759
Thomas Burnham b 1617 sailed first to Barbados in 1635 then is in Fairfield, Ct in 1639 to m Anna Wright. Of East Hartford, CT
Thomas Burnham b 1623 (some say 1617) sailed from England with his brothers robert and John Aboard the "Angel Gabrial" in 1635. of Ipswich, MA
These two families are so often confused that it is almost useless trying to work out the bugs in books or online.
Thomas Burnham, of East Hartford, Was a large land owner.He purchased his plantation, composed of the Podunk region, from the Indians.Your Richard is most likely from this line.
Thomas and Anna had 9 Children: John b 1648, Elizabeth b 1640, Mary b 1642, Anna b 1644, Thomas b 1646, "Ensign" Samuel b 1650, William b 1652, Richard b 1654, Rebbecca b 1656.
I can fill in John as I am from him:Johnathan b 1696/97, Thomas b 1686, Caleb b 1688, John b 1689, Mary b 1690, Rachel b 1692, Amy b 1693, Sarah b 1695, Elizabeth b 1696, Jabez b 1699.
I also have the children of John, though not direct, I filed it for just such a need Silas b 1721, Mary b 1722, Stephen b 1724, Sarah b 1727, Daniel b 1730, Mabel b 1734
If you think I may be of some assistance please let me know.I have some spouses and actual b d dates with some records. Good luck
