John Burgess was born about 1629 and died about 1701.
He resided in Sandwich, Barnstable, Massachusetts where he married 8 September 1657. He then removed to Yarmouth by 17 July 1657 when his name appears on a list to pay a minister's support. His name is also on a list of rate-payers there in 1676.
"John Burg Senr. of Yarmouth" made his will on 14 Aug 1700, in which he made bequests to his eldest son John Burg, son Thomas Burg, his wife Mary, daughter Martha (unmarried), his other three sons Joseph, Samuel and Jacob. He mentions four other daughters, but not by name. He appointed as his executors Mary his wife, and son Thomas Burg. In a codicill dated 19 Feb 1700/1, he adds a small bequest to Martha Severance, aunt to his son Thomas. The will presented 03 Jul 1701, and an inventory of his estate taken 12 July 1701. Mary Burg, widow and relict of John Burg late of Yarmouth, swore to the inventory.
Children named in will:
John, Thomas, Martha, Joseph, Samuel, Jacob, and 4 other daughters, unnamed but probably married by 1700.
