William was born about 1327. He passed away about 1382.

James de Burton, of Tutbury, was an Esquire of the Body to King Richard I [1189-1199], and was succeeded by his son, Oliver de Burton, whose son, Richard de Burton, was living in the 35th year of Henry III. He was succeeded by his son, Adam de Burton, of Tutbury, (living in the 14th year of Edward II), whose son, Nicholas Burton, married Agnes, daughter of Stephen Curzon, and sister and heiress of John Curzon, of Falde, and had with other issue a son, William Burton, of Falde, who succeeded him, and married Maude, daughter of William Curteis, and sister and heiress of Thomas Curteis. Dying in the 5th year of Richard II, he was succeeded by his son and heir, Richard Burton, of Tutbury and Falde. This gentleman married Maud, sister of Robert Gibon, of Tutbury, and by her had issue two sons, viz, William Burton, of Tutbury and Falde, from whom are descended the Burtons, of Leicestershire, and Richard Burton, of Chesterfield, who was living in the 5th year of Edward V.[1]
