"Elizabeth (Burges) Perry... was the only daughter of Thomas and Dorothy Burges of Sandwich. Thomas Burges was in Sandwich in 1637, Representative to the General Court, 1642, fought in the Narragansett War, 1645., etc. Savage calls him 'one of the chief men of the town.'"
"Ezra Perry & Elizabeth Burge were maried the 12th day of ffebruarie, Anno. Dom. 1651" at Sandwich, Plymouth Colony.
"Ezra Perry died 16 Oct. 1689 (the same day that he made his will).... "Elizabeth Perry ye relict of above Ezra Perry" took oath to the truth of the inventory 18 April 1690. The widow Elizabeth Perry died (apparently intestate since there is no record of the settlement of her estate) 26 Sept. 1717 "in her 88th yr." Both her gravestone and that of her husband were clearly legible in 1929."
Thomas Burgess, his wife Dorothy, their only daughter, Elizabeth (Burgess) Perry, and her husband, Ezra Perry, are buried quite close together near the brow of the hill in the Old Burying Ground on Grove Street in Sandwich.
