Descendants of John BURROUGHS






Generation One



1. John1 BURROUGHS was born circa 1617 in England.1 He married (first) Joanna JESSUP, daughter of John JESSUP and Joanna KERRICH, in Stamford, Fairfield Co, CT. He married (second) Elizabeth (PETTIT) REED, daughter of Thomas PETTIT and Christian MELLOWS, as her second husband. He died in Aug 1678 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY, (some Internet sources say 3 Aug).1

Some sources have John BURROUGHS of Newtown as the son of Reverend Jeremiah BURROUGHS. Jeremiah, however, was born about 1599 or 1600 and therefore was very likely not the father of John. Also, Jeremiah died 13 Nov 1646 in London and John was in New Haven CT by 1644.

Some sources have John BURROUGHS in Salem in 1637. This John, however, was John BARROWS, who came over in 1637 on the ship Mary Ann, "desirous to pass to Salem in New England, there to inhabit". John BARROWS later lived in Plymouth MA.

There was a John BURROWS mentioned in a New Haven CT court record in 1644. This was probably the John who settled in Newtown. A number of future Newtown families lived in New Haven. New Haven was founded in 1638 by a group of colonists who had arrived in Boston a year earlier on the ship Hector. John BURROUGHS's name is not on the passenger list of the Hector. However, there supposedly was another ship that sailed with the Hector. Maybe John was on that ship.2

John BURROUGHS may have been an indentured servant. Indentured servants were not allowed to marry until their service was finished and John's oldest child, or at least the oldest that lived to adulthood, was not born until he was about 32. 70% of immigrants arriving in America between 1630 and 1660 were indentured servants. John may have arrived in America in 1637 as a servant to someone in the New Haven group and finished his contract in the early to mid 1640s. Freed indentured servants were usually given land at the end of their service. John BURROUGHS may have been given land in Stamford, which was part of the New Haven Colony.

On 3 May 1649, John BURROWS was a witness to a court action against one of the townsmen of Stamford, CT.3

On 12 Apr 1652, John BURROUGHS sold land in Stamford CT as an "attorney" for the widow WHITMOR, then living in Masheag [Maspeth?]. Joanna (JESSUP) BURROUGHS's mother married John WHITMORE as her second husband.3

John BURROUGHS was one of the early settlers of Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He probably moved there before Apr 1652. At that time his widowed mother-in-law was living in Newtown (then called Maspeth).2,4,3

On 12 Apr 1656, John BURROUGHS was one of the signers of a deed from the Indians to the founders of Newtown, submitted and recorded on 6 Mar 1666.5

John BURROUGHS was town clerk of Newtown for a number of years. He also served as Constable for awhile.1

The approximate birth year for John BURROUGHS comes from the Newtown town records. In a 13 Aug 1667 court deposition he was called "aged about 50 years".

John BURROUGHS of Newtown, Queens Co, NY, left a will dated 2 Jul 1678 (the will mentioned his wife, son Jeremiah, son Joseph, son John (not yet 21), daughters Joanna REDER and Mary BURROUGHS, son Jeremiah executor, witnesses were Thomas PETTIT and Gershom MOORE). An inventory of the estate of John BURROUGHS was taken on 29 Aug 1678 in Queens Co, NY.6

A brother of Elizabeth (PETTIT) (REED) BURROUGHS moved to Hopewell Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, about 1696.

Some sources have Joanna (JESSUP) BURROUGHS dying in 1679. This would have been very unlikely, since divorces back then were very rare. The error can be explained by the fact that John BURROUGHS's second wife, Elizabeth, died in 1679.

Known children of John1 BURROUGHS and Joanna JESSUP were as follows:
Elizabeth PETTIT married (first) Thomas REED. She died shortly before 20 Nov 1679 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.

Elizabeth (PETTIT) (REED) BURROUGHS of Newtown, Queens Co, NY, left a will dated 25 Nov 1678 (the will mentioned children Joseph REED, John REED, Mary MOORE, Sarah REED, and John BURROUGHS, John BURROUGHS being underage, executor son-in-law Samuel MOORE of Newtown). Administration of the estate of Elizabeth (PETTIT) (REED) BURROUGHS was granted to Samuel MOORE on 20 Nov 1679 in Queens Co, NY.

Known children of John1 BURROUGHS and Elizabeth PETTIT were:




Generation Two



2. Joanna2 BURROUGHS (John1) was born say 1649 in Stamford, Fairfield Co, CT. She married John REEDER, son of John REEDER and Hannah THORPE, in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. She died on 9 May 1694 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.7

Some sources have Joanna BURROUGHS and John REEDER marrying on 10 Oct 1665. This should be "after" 10 Oct 1665 because Joanna BURROUGHS witnessed an agreement on that date. Also, Joanna was still referred to by her maiden name in the 6 Aug 1666 will of her uncle Edward JESSUP.

Joanna (BURROUGHS) REEDER may have died AFTER 9 May 1694 instead of ON 9 May 1694.

John REEDER died in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.

Some sources have a son Joseph REEDER for John2 REEDER and Joanna BURROUGHS, but they are probably confusing him with Joseph2 REEDER or Joseph3 (Isaac2) REEDER.

Some sources also have a daughter Mary for John2 REEDER and Joanna BURROUGHS.

John REEDER and Joseph REEDER were assigned part of a bill by Thomas ROBINSON, a "brother", on 12 Sep 1667 in Newtown.

About 1700, John REEDER and much of his family moved to Hopewell (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.

He died in 1698 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY, (drowned swimming after a canoe).1

There was a daughter or granddaughter Ann who married Thomas DOUGHTY. There also was a daughter or grandaughter who married a HEADLY. See the will of Joseph3 BURROUGHS (Jeremiah2, John1) of Newtown Tp, Bucks Co, PA.

The approximate birth year for Jeremiah BURROUGHS comes from the Newtown town records. In a 6 Jun 1677 court deposition he was called "a good twenty six yeares or ther a bout".

Jeremiah BURROUGHS was town clerk of Newtown for a number of years. He also served as Constable for awhile.

On 4 Apr 1691, James WAY, Francis WAY, Jeremiah BURROUGHS, Elizabeth wife of Arthur ALBURTUS deceased, and Martha wife of Thos TAYLOR deceased sell land they inherited from their father James WAY to their brother John WAY.5

In 1698, Jeremiah BURROUGHS paid 10s to have his sons John and Joseph schooled.9

Administration of the estate of Jeremiah BURROUGHS was granted to Joseph BURROUGHS on 25 May 1698 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY, ("who swimming after a canoe adrift was drowned").10

On 20 Nov 1702, John REEDER, having married Hannah daughter of Jeremiah BURROUGHS late deceased, acquits Jeremiah the heir of any claim to the estate.5

An inventory of the estate of Martha (FURMAN) (REEDER) BURROUGHS was taken on 16 Dec 1700 in Queens Co, NY.5


4. Joseph2 BURROUGHS (John1) died on 16 Feb 1737/38 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY, ("an old man", maybe 26 Feb).12,1

RootsWeb's WorldConnect Project has Joseph BURROUGHS marrying Prudence MOE.13

In 1695, Joseph BURROUGHS was a warden from Newtown for the First Presbyterian Church of Jamaica.14

Joseph BURROUGHS was Constable in 1702 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.

On 8 Jun 1711, Joseph BURROUGHS of Newtown purchased land in Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ. He conveyed this land to his son John of Newton on 28 May 1737 "for which said John is to support said Joseph during his natural life".10

Generation Three



6. John3 REEDER (Joanna2 BURROUGHS, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married Hannah BURROUGHS, daughter of Jeremiah BURROUGHS and Hannah WAY, as her first husband before 20 Nov 1702.1,5 He died shortly before 18 May 1710 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.

Known children of Isaac3 REEDER and Joanna HUNT were as follows:

8. Jeremiah3 BURROUGHS (Jeremiah2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married Cornelia ECKERSON, daughter of Jan Thomasen ECKERSON and Apollonia Cornelia SWITZ, on 10 Sep 1700 probably in New York City, New York Co, NY.21 He died before 9 Feb 1760.11

On 9 Dec 1703, Jeremiah BURROUGHS of New York City sold land to Joseph BURROUGHS of Newtown.

Some Internet sources have this Jeremiah BURROUGHS dying in 1746 in Hunterdon Co, NJ. But administration of that estate was given to John BURROUGHS of Trenton Tp. Why wasn't administration given to the widow or one of the sons? The Jeremiah who died in 1746 was born about 1709, the son of the original John of Trenton Tp.

Cornelia ECKERSON was born in 1682 in New York City, New York Co, NY. She was baptized on 15 Nov 1682 in Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York Co, NY.

Known children of Jeremiah3 BURROUGHS and Cornelia ECKERSON were as follows:

9. Hannah3 BURROUGHS (Jeremiah2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. She married (first) John REEDER, son of John REEDER and Joanna BURROUGHS, before 20 Nov 1702.1,5 Hannah (BURROUGHS) REEDER married (second) John FURMAN, son of John FURMAN and Margaret LYNCH, on 2 Jul 1711 in Presbyterian Church, Newtown, Queens Co, NY.1 She died on 22 Feb 1732/33.17

On 20 Nov 1702, John REEDER, having married Hannah daughter of Jeremiah BURROUGHS late deceased, acquits Jeremiah the heir of any claim to the estate.5

John REEDER was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He died shortly before 18 May 1710 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.

John REEDER of Newtown, Queens Co, NY, left a will dated 1 Mar 1709/10 (the will mentioned wife Hannah, sons John and Jeremiah underage, daughters Hannah and Mary underage, brother Isaac REEDER). The will was proved on 18 May 1710 in Queens Co, NY.

Known children of Hannah3 BURROUGHS and John REEDER were as follows:
John FURMAN was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He died on 22 Feb 1722/23 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.


10. James3 BURROUGHS (Jeremiah2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married Deborah SALYER in Nov 1710 in Presbyterian Church, Newtown, Queens Co, NY.12 He died between 1725 and 1730 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.1

It would have been very unusual for a man in the early 1700s to not name one of his older sons, if not the oldest son, after his father. So James BURROUGHS likely had a son named Jeremiah, possibly by a first wife.

The given name William comes from the SALYER family. Deborah's father or grandfather was William SALYER of Newtown (and other places).

Another possible son of James BURROUGHS and Deborah SALYER is the John who married Mary GOODWIN in Newtown on 21 Jan 1737/38. Mary was from Jamaica, so this John was probably the John baptized 27 Aug 1710 in Grace Church in Jamaica (who moved to Elizabethtown NJ). Also, James and Deborah's son Benjamin married 3 days after John. If they were brothers, wouldn't they have had a double ceremony? Or at least not have scheduled the weddings so close together. And yet a 1758 Fishkill land record mentioned a John BURROWS.

Another possible daughter of James BURROUGHS and Deborah SALYER is the Joanna BURROUGHS who died in 21 Apr 1729 in Newtown. Also, the Elizabeth BURROUGHS who married Azariah HUNT on 3 Mar 1755 in Newtown and lived in Hopewell Tp.

James BURROUGHS was Assessor in 1708 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.22

The records of the Presbyterian Church in Newtown have James and Deborah marrying in Nov 1710. However, James BURROUGHS and Deborah his wife were mentioned in the town records in Feb 1709. Could James have been married twice, both times to a Deborah?

James BURROUGHS was a(n) weaver.5

Deborah SALYER died on 15 May 1737 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.12

Known children of James3 BURROUGHS and Deborah SALYER were as follows:

11. John3 BURROUGHS (Jeremiah2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married (first) Mary JENNINGS. He married (second) Elizabeth. He died shortly before 8 Mar 1774 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.23,24 He was buried in Presbyterian Cemetery, Ewing Tp, Mercer Co, NJ.

John BURROUGHS likely had two wives. A history of the ABBOTT family states that Benjamin ABBOTT married Hannah BURROUGHS, daughter of John and Mary (JENNINGS) BURROUGHS. A number of sources list an Elizabeth as the mother of some of John's children. It is interesting to note that Joseph, Isaac, Jemima and James all named their oldest daughter Elizabeth, and Benjamin named his second oldest daughter Elizabeth. Also, Jemima (BURROUGHS) HOWELL named her twin daughters Elizabeth and Mary ... maybe after their two grandmothers. And John Jr. named one of his daughters Elizabeth, but none Mary.

Some sources have a son Henry. This comes from the "The History of Bucks County, Pennsylvania" by William DAVIS. He claimed that the father of the John BURROUGHS who married Lydia BAKER was Henry, and that Henry was the son of the John who died in Ewing Tp. However, the John who married Lydia BAKER in 1746 was born about 1718 according to his will. There is no way he can be the grandson of John of Ewing Tp.

Some sources have a son Cornelius. John's son Benjamin of Salem Co had a son Cornelius. Benjamin's birth date has been erroneously passed down as 1742, by subtracting 21 from his second marriage in 1763. The way-too-late birth date for Benjamin made it impossible for him to be the father of Cornelius, so people just threw Cornelius in as a son of John instead of as a grandson.

Daughter Sarah could be by Mary JENNINGS instead of Elizabeth.

John BURROUGHS reportedly came to Ewing Tp as an unmarried man about the age of 21. He purchased a farm not too far from the church.24

John BURROUGHS signed an agreement involving Ewing Tp supposedly dated 26 Aug 1703. This however, does not fit well with the fact that he was still being schooled in 1698. Maybe 1703 should be 1708 or 1713.24,25

Some sources place this John BURROUGHS as John3 (John2, John1). However, that John was too young to be the John who moved to Hunterdon Co by 1703.

In a court record dated 26 Dec 1707 about a road from Maidenhead through Hopewell, land of John BURROUGHS was mentioned.26

John BURROUGHS's name was on the 9 Mar 1709 deed for the "Trenton First Church", now Ewing.25

John BURROUGHS was among the first grand jurors in 1714 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.25

Trenton Tp was formed in 1719 from part of Hopewell Tp.

John BURROUGHS was Surveyor for the Highways in 1721 in Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.19

John BURROUGHS was a Judge on 6 May 1721 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.27

John BURROUGHS did not appear in the 1722 tax lists for Hunterdon County. Maybe it was a list of jurors and he was exempt for being a judge.19

Some sources have this John BURROUGHS marrying Phebe HAINES in 1726. That marriage record, however, says John BURROUGH (no S), son of Samuel.

John BURROUGHS was listed in 1738 as a freeholder in Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.19

On 10 Mar 1737/38, John BURROUGHS of Tren Town, County of Hunterdon, West New Jersey, to John REEDER of Newtown, "all controversies, actions or ???? by reason of the piece of parcel of land formerly conveyed to me by John Reeder decd father of the said John Reeder of Newtown". This is more evidence that John of Trenton Tp was the son of Jeremiah.

On 27 Aug 1740, John BURROUGHS of Trenton Hunterdon Co NJ yeoman and Elizabeth ABBIT of Queens Co widow and relict of Joseph ABBIT late of Oyster Bay posted a bond unto John BURROUGHS of Newtown for the administration of Joseph ABBIT's estate. Elizabeth must have been a relative, probably a sister of either John of Newtown or John of Trenton. See also the 19 May 1741 bond of John of Upper Makefield Tp.

John BURROUGHS was listed in 1741 as a freeholder in Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.28

In 1743, an earmark was granted to William BURROUGHS of Hopewell Tp. In 1744, William BURROUGHS of Trenton Tp sold land. Is this another son of John of Trenton Tp? Is he William4 (James3, Jeremiah2, John1)? Or is he some unknown William?

John and Joseph BURROUGHS were witnesses when Mary BURROUGHS, widow of Philip, renounced her right to administer her husband's estate to Philip's father John.

John BURROUGHS was granted administration of the estate of Jeremiah BURROUGHS on 10 Nov 1746 in Hunterdon Co, NJ, (John was a yeoman from Trenton Tp).23

The will of Benjamin ABBOTT of Makefield Tp, Bucks Co, PA, dated 23 Dec 1746, mentioned his father-in-law John BURROUGHS of Trenton.

A 1753 will in Newtown mentioned John and Joseph, sons of John BURROUGHS of West Jersey.

John BURROUGHS was Overseer of Roads in 1755 in Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.

John BURROUGHS of Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, left a will dated 22 Oct 1768 (the will mentioned grandson Jonathan BURROUGHS, daughters Sarah MOORE, Elizabeth ROSE, Mary BAKER, Jemima HOWELL, sons Benjamin and Isaac of Salem Co, son James the family plantation, executors sons Joseph and James, witnesses Silas ROSE, Daniel LANING, Abigail HOWELL). An inventory of the estate of John BURROUGHS was taken on 8 Mar 1774 in Hunterdon Co, NJ. The will was proved on 9 Mar 1774 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.23

Jonathan JENNINGS was the first governor of Indiana and was born in Hunterdon Co.

Known children of John3 BURROUGHS and Mary JENNINGS were as follows:
Known children of John3 BURROUGHS and Elizabeth were as follows:

12. John3 BURROUGHS (Joseph2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married Margaret RENNE, daughter of James RENNE and Sarah HAZARD, in Jun 1721 in Presbyterian Church, Newtown, Queens Co, NY.12 He died on 7 Jul 1750 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.12

John BURROUGHS sold land in Newtown, Queens Co, NY, to Joseph BURROUGHS on 11 Dec 1712 (one or two acres of meadow. This could be a transaction from John3 (John2) to hs uncle or cousin, but a transaction from an older brother to a younger brother also makes sense).

On 3 Apr 1722, John BURROUGHS, son of Joseph, was chosen as constable and collector of Newtown.

John BURROUGHS of Newtown, Queens Co, NY, left a will dated 25 Jan 1734/35 (the will mentioned wife Margaret, sons John and Samuel, daughter Joanna, land in Trenton to be sold, executor wife).6

On 27 Aug 1740, John BURROUGHS of Trenton Hunterdon Co NJ yeoman and Elizabeth ABBIT of Queens Co widow and relict of Joseph ABBIT late of Oyster Bay posted a bond unto John BURROUGHS of Newtown for the administration of Joseph ABBIT's estate. Elizabeth must have been a relative, probably a sister of either John of Newtown or John of Trenton. See also the 19 May 1741 bond of John of Upper Makefield Tp.

On 19 May 1741, John BURROUGHS of Makefield Tp Bucks Co PA yeoman and Isaac REEDER of Trenton Hunterdon Co NJ yeoman posted a bond unto John BURROUGHS of Newtown for the administration of Elizabeth ABBIT, "they having become bound to the Gov. at her request", witnessed by Joseph BURROUGHS. See also 27 Aug 1740 bond of John of Trenton. The will was proved on 16 Feb 1750/51 in Queens Co, NY, ("only son" John made executor, the widow having resigned her right).6

Articles of agreement dated 3 Dec 1750 between Margaret BURROUGHS widow of John BURROUGHS of Newtown deceased, and her son John BURROUGHS of the same place, respecting the estate of the said John BURROUGHS deceased.

Margaret RENNE died on 11 Jul 1767 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.1

Margaret (RENNE) BURROUGHS of Newtown, Queens Co, NY, left a will dated 1 Jul 1767 (the will mentioned grandson Joseph BURROUGHS, great-grandson John BURROUGHS son of grandson Joseph BURROUGHS, negro girl to the first daughter that grandson Joseph BURROUGHS shall have, executors grandson Joseph BURROUGHS, friend Daniel RAPELYE Esq., friend Nathaniel FISH, witnesses Robert FIELD Jr., Samuel RENNE, Margaret RENNE). The will was proved on 11 May 1768 in Surrogates Court, New York City, New York Co, NY.

Known children of John3 BURROUGHS and Margaret RENNE were as follows:

13. Joseph3 BURROUGHS (Joseph2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married Elizabeth RENNE, daughter of James RENNE and Sarah HAZARD, in Jun 1721 in Presbyterian Church, Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He died before 8 Feb 1737 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.

The Joseph who married Elizabeth RENNE may not be the son of Joseph2. He could be the son of Jeremiah2. But the will of Joseph3 (Jeremiah2) does not list a wife or any children. He could also be the son of John2. But Joseph2 makes the most sense because it would be fairly common for brothers to marry sisters.

The Elizabeth BURROUGHS who married Azariah HUNT in 1755 may not be the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth, but it is the most logical place for her to fit.

Joseph BURROUGHS bought land in Newtown, Queens Co, NY, from John BURROUGHS on 11 Dec 1712 (one or two acres of meadow. This could be a transaction from John3 (John2) to hs uncle or cousin, but a transaction from an older brother to a younger brother also makes sense).

Joseph BURROUGHS died before 8 Feb 1737, because on that date his younger relative Joseph4 (James3, Jeremiah2) was called Jr. in the death record for his son. If Joseph3 (Joseph2) were still alive, Joseph4 would have been called Joseph 3rd instead of Jr. Joseph Sr. was Joseph2.

Elizabeth RENNE died before 30 Nov 1756 (not mentioned in father's will).

Known children of Joseph3 BURROUGHS and Elizabeth RENNE were:

Henry BURROUGHS may not be a son of William BURROUGHS. He is placed there because William's son James had a son named Henry.

Gideon and Joseph (and possibly others) could have been nephews of James instead of sons.

James BURROUGHS appeared in tax lists for Rumbout (now Fishkill), Dutchess Co, NY, in between 1748 and 1760.

James BURROUGHS moved in the early 1760s to Skenesborough (now Whitehall) in Charlotte (now Washington) County NY.

The BURROUGHS family moved east to Pawlet, Rutland Co, VT, during the period when the British were occupying Skenesborough (Whitehall).

James BURROUGHS was town clerk in 1778 in Skenesborough (now Whitehall), Charlotte (now Washington) Co, NY.37

Charlotte County was renamed Washington County in 1784.

Skenesborough was renamed Whitehall in 1786.

James BURROUGHS appeared in the 1790 US census in Whitehall, Washington Co, NY, (James BURROWS, 1 male 16+, 1 female).

A possible grandson is the Jeremiah BURROUGHS who lived in Locke, Cayuga Co, NY, and died fairly young in 1814.

19. Jeremiah4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born circa 1709 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.18 He died shortly before 5 Sep 1746 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.23 He was buried in Presbyterian Cemetery, Ewing Tp, Mercer Co, NJ, (died Sep 1747 [?], age 38).39

Jonathan may not be a son of Jeremiah, but that is the only place that he can logically fit. Jonathan also named his oldest son Jeremiah.

Jeremiah BURROUGHS was listed in 1741 as a freeholder in Hopewell Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.40

An inventory of the estate of Jeremiah BURROUGHS was taken on 5 Sep 1746 in Hunterdon Co, NJ. Administration of the estate of Jeremiah BURROUGHS was granted to John BURROUGHS on 10 Nov 1746 in Hunterdon Co, NJ, (John was a yeoman from Trenton Tp).23

Known children of Jeremiah4 BURROUGHS include:

20. Phillip4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born say 1711 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ. He married Mary. He died shortly before 9 Mar 1744/45 in Readington Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.

Phillip BURROUGHS was not listed as a freeholder in Hunterdon Co in 1741.

The estate of Phillip BURROUGHS was probated on 9 Mar 1744/45 in Hunterdon Co, NJ, (Philip was a yeoman from Readington, wife Mary renunciated her right to administer in favor of John BURROUGHS father of Philip, witnesses John and Joseph BURROUGHS).

Mary died shortly before 21 Jan 1783 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.23

Mary BURROUGHS of Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, left a will dated 20 Nov 1782 (the will mentioned heirs of son William of PA (deceased), son Phillip, daughter Theodocia FURMAN, daughter Elizabeth CHERRY, granddaughter Mary KITCHEN, executors brother-in-law James BURROUGHS and son-in-law John FURMAN, witnesses Joseph BURROUGHS, John BURROUGHS, Joseph BURROUGHS Jr).

Known children of Phillip4 BURROUGHS and Mary were as follows:

21. John4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born circa 1718 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.11 He married Lydia BAKER, daughter of Samuel BAKER and Rachel WARDER, on 8 Apr 1746 in Bucks Co, PA, (both from Bucks Co).41 He died shortly before 8 Dec 1806 in Upper Makefield Tp, Bucks Co, PA.11

John BURROUGHS of Upper Makefield was not named in the 1768 will of his father John BURROUGHS of Trenton. But there is circumstantial evidence which indicates that he was a son: 1) two of Lydia BAKER's brothers in Upper Makefield married daughters of John BURROUGHS of Trenton, 2) John and Lydia's oldest daughter was named Hannah shortly after Hannah (BURROUGHS) ABBOTT died, 3) John BURROUGHS of Makefield Tp was tied to the BURROUGHS families in Newtown and Trenton in the 1740 and 1741 probate records for Joseph and Elizabeth (BURROUGHS?) ABBOTT.

On 28 Sep 1739, Benjamin ABBOTT of Makefield Tp obtained land in Makefield Tp. One of the witness was John BURROUGHS Jr.

On 19 May 1741, John BURROUGHS of Makefield Tp Bucks Co PA yeoman and Isaac REEDER of Trenton Hunterdon Co NJ yeoman posted a bond unto John BURROUGHS of Newtown for the administration of Elizabeth ABBIT, "they having become bound to the Gov. at her request", witnessed by Joseph BURROUGHS. See also 27 Aug 1740 bond of John of Trenton.

A 1753 will in Newtown mentioned John and Joseph, sons of John BURROUGHS of West Jersey.

On 7 Dec 1763, Lydia BURROUGHS, wife of John BURROUGHS (he not being joined in community with Friends), requested that her children be taken fully under the care of Friends.

John BURROUGHS was named executor in the will of Henry BAKER dated 16 Nov 1764 (5 daughters?).

John BURROUGHS appeared in the 1800 US census in Upper Makefield Tp, Bucks Co, PA, (John BURROWS, 2 males 0-10, 1 male 26-45, 2 males 45+, 4 females 0-10, 1 female 10-16, 1 female 26-45).

John BURROUGHS of Upper Makefield Tp, Bucks Co, PA, left a will dated 9 May 1800 ("far advanced in old age, being near Eighty-two", the will mentioned oldest son Samuel "by imprudent conduct has cost me more than his proprotion", youngest son Henry "by industry and frugality has considerable on hand", Samuel $1, his son John 100 pounds [is this John's son or his son's Samuel's son?], daughers Hannah THOMTON, Margaret HARVEY, Elizabeth TAYLOR, Rachel BEATTY, Sarah BUCKMAN, Esther FELL, executors son Henry and son-in-law Benjamin TAYLOR, witnesses Barnet HAGEMAN, Pleasant SMITH, Letitia MATHEWS, Peter HODDLE). The will was proved on 8 Dec 1806 in Bucks Co, PA.11

The John BURROUGHS homestead on Wrightstown-Taylorsville Road in Bucks Co is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built about 1752.

Lydia BAKER was born on 5 Oct 1724.17

Known children of John4 BURROUGHS and Lydia BAKER were as follows:

He died on 29 Oct 1798 in Hopewell Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.8 He was buried in Presbyterian Cemetery, Ewing Tp, Mercer Co, NJ, (age 73).39

The children may not be in the correct order.

In a West Jersey deed dated 3 Jul 1750, Joseph BURROUGHS of Hopewell Tp purchased the land where he was living.43

A 1753 will in Newtown mentioned John and Joseph, sons of John BURROUGHS of West Jersey.

Joseph BURROUGHS was Overseer of Highways in 1762 in Hopewell Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.44

Joseph BURROUGHS appeared in the tax ratables for Hopewell Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, between 1778 and 1785 (1778 BURROWS, 1779 BURROUGHS, 1780 both BURROWS and BURROUGHS, 1781 BURROWS, 1785 BURROUGHS, over 400 acres).

Joseph BURROUGHS of Hopewell Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, left a will dated Dec 1797 (the will mentioned wife Martha, son John, daughter Phebe still single, son James, son Edmond, daughter Elizabeth BURROUGHS widow of Philip BURROUGHS, Elizabeth's son Joseph not yet 21, daughter Martha wife of James HILL, daughters Phebe, Ann, Jerusha, daughter Jerusha wife of William BURROUGHS, daughter Anne LOTT wife of Peter LOTT, executors sons James and John, witnesses Phillips HART, John HART, Maskell EWING).

The will was proved on 3 Mar 1809 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.

Known children of Joseph4 BURROUGHS and Martha WILLETS were as follows:

23. Benjamin4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born say 1727 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ. He married (second) Mary VAN HORN in Jun 1763 in Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ.17 He died shortly before 12 Feb 1807 in Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ.23

Some sources have Benjamin BURROUGHS born in 1742 but that is unlikely since his sons John and Cornelius served in the Revolutionary War and were named in Benjamin's will before children Benjamin, Elizabeth, and Catherine. The 1742 date comes from an old genealogy by James A. WALMSLEY. It looks like he just subtracted 21 from the year of Benjamin's second marriage.

Either Benjamin or Isaac had a child A. D. who died in 1769 only 12 days old.

Benjamin BURROUGHS served in the Revolutionary War in Captain Jacob DuBOIS's Company between 1775 and 1778.17

Benjamin BURROUGHS of Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ, left a will dated 22 Jan 1799 (the will mentioned wife Mary, son John plantation adjoining David BURROUGHS, son Cornelius, son Joseph idiot, grandchildren Mary ROSE, Abraham ROSE, Pheby ROSE, Cornelius ROSE, John ROSE, all children of Hannah ROSE deceased, son Benjamin, daughter Elizabeth DUBOIS wife of Isaac DUBOIS, daughter Catherine NEWKIRK wife of Matthew NEWKIRK, executor son Cornelius, witnesses Sarah MAYHEW, Stanford MAYHEW, Eleazar MAYHEW). An inventory of the estate of Benjamin BURROUGHS was taken on 12 Feb 1807 in Salem Co, NJ. The will was proved on 19 Feb 1807 in Salem Co, NJ.23

Known children of Benjamin4 BURROUGHS include:
Mary VAN HORN died in 1810 in Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ.17 She was buried in Pittsgrove Presbyterian Cemetery, Daretown, Salem Co, NJ.

Known children of Benjamin4 BURROUGHS and Mary VAN HORN were as follows:

24. Isaac4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born circa 1729 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.18 He married Patience. He died on 26 Feb 1786 in Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ. He was buried in Pittsgrove Presbyterian Cemetery, Daretown, Salem Co, NJ.17

The children are probably not all in the correct order.

Either Benjamin or Isaac had a child A. D. who died in 1769 only 12 days old.

Isaac BURROUGHS of Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ, left a will dated 16 Feb 1786 (the will mentioned wife Patience, sons Joseph, Isaac, David, Uriah, John, daughters Elizabeth VANMETER, Hannah ABBET, Sarah BURROUGHS, grandson Isaac Burroughs VANMETER, executors wife Patience and son Joseph, witnesses Benjamin BURROUGHS, John STULLS, John NELSON). The will was proved on 20 Mar 1786 in Salem Co, NJ.23

Patience was born in 1733.17 She died in Nov 1789 in Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ.23 She was buried in Pittsgrove Presbyterian Cemetery, Daretown, Salem Co, NJ.17

Patience BURROUGHS of Pittsgrove Tp, Salem Co, NJ, left a will dated 6 Nov 1789 (the will mentioned son Joseph, son John, Isaac BURROUGH, David BURROUGH, son Youryah, Hannah ABIT, Sarah ROSE, daughter Elizabeth VAN METE's children, executor friend Benjamin VAN METER, witnesses Mary KROM, David DuBOIS Jr., Abraham DuBOIS). An inventory of the estate of Patience BURROUGHS was taken on 12 Nov 1789 in Salem Co, NJ.

Known children of Isaac4 BURROUGHS and Patience were as follows:

25. Jemima4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born on 15 Feb in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ. She married (first) William BARBER.24 Jemima (BURROUGHS) BARBER married (second) Joseph HOWELL, son of David HOWELL and Mary BAKER, between 1753 and 1754.24 She died on 13 Feb 1825 in Newtown Tp, Bucks Co, PA.17 She was buried in Presbyterian Cemetery, Newtown Tp, Bucks Co, PA.17

Some sources have Jemima BURROUGHS's first husband as Joseph BARBER. The probate record below, however, highly suggests that her husband was William BARBER. The reference to a Joseph BARBER probably resulted from the fact that Jemima's second husband was named Joseph.

Jemima BURROUGHS's birth date has been reported as 15 Feb 1725. This came from "Descendants of Edward Howell" which says that she died two days short of her 100th birthday. The 1876 history of Bucks County states that she died "aged ninety-nine years, eleven months and nineteen days". Both of these sources are probably incorrect. Jemima was likely born a few years later than 1725 for four reasons: 1) ages of extremely elderly people in the 18th and 19th centuries were usually exaggerated, 2) her oldest child was born in 1754, 3) her husband was born in 1729, and 4) her brother Joseph was born in 1725 according to his age at death.

On 18 Jan 1753, Jemima BARBER declined her right to the administration of the estate of William BARBER of Lebanon Tp Hunterdon Co "in favour of her father, John Burroughs".
Joseph HOWELL was born on 3 May 1729.34 He died on 11 Jul 1800 in Bucks Co, PA, at age 71.

Known children of Jemima4 BURROUGHS and Joseph HOWELL were as follows:

26. James4 BURROUGHS (John3, Jeremiah2, John1) was born on 8 Jul 1735 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.52 He married Mary JONES in Hunterdon Co, NJ.52 He died shortly before 1 Mar 1784 in Trenton (now Ewing) Tp, Hunterdon (now Mercer) Co, NJ.23

James BURROUGHS was probably born a little earlier than 1735. Otherwise his first child was born when he was 18 1/2. Maybe 1733 looked like 1735 in the family bible.

James BURROUGHS appeared in the tax ratables for Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, in 1779 (BURROSS 221 acres).

James BURROUGHS of Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, left a will dated 5 Jan 1784 (the will mentioned wife Mary, family plantation inherited from father to be sold and money divided between sons John and Joseph, minor sons Phillip and Jeremiah, daughters Elizabeth and Mary, minor daughters Huldah, Mercy, and Jemimah, executors son Joseph and son-in-law William GREEN, witnesses Jeremiah ANDERSON, Rebekah GREEN, Neille [sic] McGILL). An inventory of the estate of James BURROUGHS was taken on 1 Mar 1784 in Hunterdon Co, NJ. The will was proved on 9 Mar 1784 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.23

Mary JONES was born on 9 Jul 1735 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.52 She died shortly before 22 Dec 1800 in Hunterdon Co, NJ.23

Mary (JONES) BURROUGHS appeared in the tax ratables for Trenton Tp, Hunterdon Co, NJ, in 1786 (BURROUGHS 231 acres).

Administration of the estate of Mary (JONES) BURROUGHS was granted to Henry COOK on 22 Dec 1800 in Hunterdon Co, NJ, (Mary from Trenton Tp, fellowbondsmen Samuel COOK and Job COOK of Hunterdon Co).

27. John4 BURROUGHS (John3, Joseph2, John1) was born in Newtown, Queens Co, NY. He married (second) Sarah (HUNT) SMITH as her second husband on 26 Apr 1747 in Presbyterian Church, Newtown, Queens Co, NY, (widow of Hopewell, NJ).12,1 He died on 18 Feb 1755 in Newtown, Queens Co, NY.1

The age on Joseph BURROUGHS's gravestone gives a birth date of 29 Jun 1748. But did he really marry at age 17 to a 26 year old woman? The age on his gravestone was probably wrong and he was likely John's son by a first wife.

Sarah wife of John BURROUGHS renewed her covenant & their children Rachel and Joseph baptized 22 Apr 1750.12

John BURROUGHS of Newtown, Queens Co, NY, left a will dated 17 Dec 1753 (the will mentioned wife Sarah, son Joseph under age, unnamed mother, John and Joseph sons of John BURROUGHS of West Jersey, Rachel SMITH wife's daughter, James HUNT wife's brother, land in Trenton). The will was proved on 20 Mar 1755 in Surrogates Court, New York City, New York Co, NY.

David BURROUGHS may not be a son of Thomas. He is placed there because he lived in Romulus and Ovid and because his son's 1880 census record says that David was born in NJ. However, David's son Reuben chose Curtis BURROUGHS as his guardian. Curtis and his sister Hulda (BURROUGHS) MAYNARD lived in Shelby but were part of the Delaware Co NY family.

Jeremiah BURROUGHS is listed as a son of James because the widow Rachel was living next to James in the 1810 census.

Jeremiah BURROUGHS is listed as the husband of Rachel WELCH on an old handwritten pedigree chart. He is listed as dying in 1808 in Franklinville NY and Rachel is listed as his second wife.

Valentine BURROUGHS is listed as a son of Jeremiah only because Alanson B. BURROUGHS was called Valentine on the 1895 birth record for his son.

Rachel BURROUGHS appeared in the 1810 US census in Marcellus, Onondaga Co, NY, (Rachel BURROUGHS, 3 males 0-10, 2 females 0-10, 1 female 26-45, next to James BURROUGHS, many WELCHs in this area).

She died on 24 Nov 1846 in Mansfield, Cattaraugus Co, NY.123 She was buried in Eddyville Cemetery, Mansfield, Cattaraugus Co, NY.

Mercy (BURROUGHS) SMITH is listed as a daughter of James because she was born in 1779 and also because Mansfield is close to Franklinville in Cattaraugus County.

The online transcription of Mercy's gravestone has 1749-1816. The '4' must have looked like a '1'. And either the birth year was also hard to read or there was an age on the gravestone.

Amasa SMITH was born in 1775.8 He died on 20 Dec 1843 in Mansfield, Cattaraugus Co, NY.123 He was buried in Eddyville Cemetery, Mansfield, Cattaraugus Co, NY.

Some sources have Daniel G. BURROUGHS as a son of John and Mary, probably because of the middle initial. But Daniel was living near James, not John, in the 1810 census. And he sold land in Marcellus with James in 1815.

Daniel G. BURROUGHS was a witness when James BURROUGHS sold land in Marcellus, Onondaga Co, NY, on 29 Nov 1809 (13 acres in lot 89, James Sr. of Marcellus, bounded on north by land of said James BURROUGHS, bounded on south by Pork Point Road, recorded 6 Sep 1813, looks like part of the 30 acres he bought in 1808).70

Some sources have Daniel's death date as 30 Oct 1871, but that was the day his will was proved.

Phena [Tryphena?] was born circa 1790 in New York.18 She died on 10 Jul 1867 in Castile, Wyoming Co, NY.8 She was buried in Grace Cemetery, Castile, Wyoming Co, NY, (AGED 77 YRS).74

Some sources have a birth date of 25 Feb 1791 for Parmalee BURROUGHS, but the census records of 1790 and 1800 say that he was born before 1790.

Abigail CORNWALL was born on 17 Sep 1793 in Middletown, Middlesex Co, CT.34

Known children of Parmelee Allen6 BURROUGHS and Abigail CORNWALL were as follows:

Known children of Jesse Blanchard6 BURROUGHS and Phebe WHITFORD were as follows:

OneWorldTree has a birth date of 2 Feb 1795, but that does not agree with the 1850 census and also doesn't fit with the birth dates of siblings Abigail and Jesse.

Thomas BURROUGHS appeared in the 1830 US census in Pike, Allegany Co, NY, (Thos. BURROUGHS, 1 male 0-5, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 30-40, 1 female 0-5, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 10-15, 1 female 30-40).

Thomas BURROUGHS appeared in the 1840 US census in Spring Tp, Crawford Co, PA, (Thomas BURROUGHS, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 40-50, 3 females 15-20, 1 female 40-50).

Thomas BURROUGHS appeared in the 1850 US census in Spring Tp, Crawford Co, PA, (Thomas BURROUGHS age 52 born NY, Betsey BURROUGHS 51 CT, John B---- 31 NY, Betsy B---- 25 NY, Julia B---- 4 PA, Betsy B---- 1 PA, Laura BURROUGHS 26 NY, Thomas BURROUGHS 21 NY).

He died on 15 Feb 1850 in Bath Tp, Summit Co, OH.8 He was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Neenah, Winnebago Co, WI, (James B., age 66, father).127

Some sources have a daughter Mary "Polly" who married Samuel WESTLAKE about 1829 and lived in Mercer Co PA. But this Mary BURROUGHS was born in OH according to the 1860, 1870, and 1880 census, and the 1880 census has her parents born in PA and DE. Those birth places don't fit at all. This mistake was made because Samuel and Polly had a son named Burroughs WESTLAKE and lived near Peter BURROUGHS in 1850. But that name did not come from Polly's family ... Samuel's father was Burroughs WESTLAKE. The WESTLAKEs go back to Trenton NJ, so that is probably where the Burroughs name came from.

James G. BURROUGHS was a witness when John BURROUGHS sold land in Marcellus, Onondaga Co, NY, on 20 Oct 1804 (part of lot 11).

In an Onondaga County deed dated 17 Sep 1836, James G. BURROUGHS and wife Irene were from Euclid, Cuyahoga Co, OH. Irene and her VAN AUKEN siblings were selling inherited land in Marcellus. These siblings were likely the children of the Cornelius VAN AUKEN in Owasco, Cayuga Co, in the 1810 and 1820 census. Owasco is very near to what was the southwest part of Marcellus.

James G. BURROUGHS appeared in the 1840 US census in Copley, Summit Co, OH, (James G. BURROUGHS, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 30-40, 1 male 50-60, 1 female 15-20, 1 female 50-60).
