Generation No. 9

 

      256.  John WEST, born 1617; died 1698.  He married 257. Susannah/Sarah PIERSON.

      257.  Susannah/Sarah PIERSON (Source: Woodward Genealogy Home Page, Woodward Genealogy Home Pagehttp://www.geocities.com/nadineholder/index.html.), born 1632; died 1664 in Virginia.  She was the daughter of 514. Thomas PEARSON and 515. Margery Ellen Smith.

             Notes for Susannah/Sarah PIERSON:

The Nereus Mendenhall biography also tells us of another daughter, Sarah Pearson, married to John West, but once again it was incorrect. The son of John & Sarah Pearson West, Sir Benjamin West, was a famous artist. In a painting "Elm Tree Treaty" he depicted Thomas Pierson, the surveyor, standing near William Penn holding a map in his hand. This painting may have led to the error in the Mendenhall biography that Sarah was a daughter of Thomas Pierson, the surveyor. It is proven that she was the daughter of Thomas and Margery Pearson, more below.

 

Thomas Pierson died intestate so we do not know the names of all his descendants for sure. There is a copy of his inventory of personal goods and account upon his estate, taken in the township of Caln in Chester County, on the Mendenhall Web Site. Since the family of Thomas and Rose Dixon Pierson was very small for the time, it seems possible that Rose died early.

There has been confusion with another Thomas Pearson/Pierson of Marple. Thomas Pearson of Marple had a wife Margery Smith, and died about 1734. His will was proven 25 March 1734, and a copy is posted on the Chester County Will Forum. Merry Anne Pierson {email} kindly set us straight on this matter, and provided the will. She is researching a Samuel Pearson but cannot find a connection to these families. If anyone can help, please contact Merry Anne. Thomas names Sarah West, wife of John West in his will.

 

Another tempting lead came from Colonial Families of Philadelphia naming Thomas Pearson, with a daughter Susannah, as one of the founders of the Darby Library in 1743. Given our erudite Thomas Pierson, we had hoped to find this Thomas Pearson as a son, but so far can find no connection.

 

We searched land deed abstracts up through 1753 hoping to find some land transcations for our Thomas Pierson in connection with his estate but found none, although we found many for the Thomas Pearson married to Margery. We tend to believe our Thomas then did not have additional children and had settled land on his sons-in-law before his death. One thing notable in the deed search was that the name was seen pretty consistently as Pierson before 1700 and pretty consistently as Pearson after 1700.

            Notes for Col. Willam Burgess:

William BURGESS was born ca. 1622 in England.  Records would indicate he was closely related to the BURGESS family of Marlborough, Wiltshire.  Hewas transported to Lower Norfolk Co., VA prior to 1646.20 In 1650 he moved to Anne Arundel Co., MD.21  His first wife was Elizabeth ROBINS,2 who was living in 1657.

 BURGESS, COL  was born Abt. 1622 in Wales, England, and died January 24, 1685/86 in All Hallow's Parish, Anne Arundel Co. Maryland. He married (1) URSULA PAINTER. She was born Unknown, and died Abt. 1702. He married (2) ELIZABETH ROBBINS 1650 in Anne Arundel Co. Maryland, daughter of EDWARD ROBBINS and JANE CORNISH. She was born 1624 in Anne Arundel Co, Maryland, and died 1658 in Anne Arundel Co, Maryland. He married (3) SOPHIA "EWEN" Aft. 1658. She was born Unknown, and died Bef. 1660.

 

THE BURGESS FAMILY OF SOUTH RIVER, MARYLAND

      One of the largest landed proprietors on South river where London Town was laid out, though no longer of economic importance, was Colonel William Burgess, Esq, whose ancestory was definitely English with some clues from Maryland record as to his background. The family in pre-colonial days was concentrated in Essex and Sussex, as far north as Lincolnshire and in western Dorest. The English orthography was always with a single "s", the spelling which was used principally by the first and second generations in Maryland, but the American branches gradually adopted the double "ss".

 

More definite evidence of the English domicile of Colonel William Burges points of the County of Wilts. In 1663 Anthony Goddard of Brigden, Wiltshire, England and the Colony of Virginia s died testate and bequeathed his entire estate to William Burges in trust for Hester Burges of Bristol, England. Furthermore, Joesph Burges, a Merchant of Marlborough, Wilts, England, made his will on October 22, 1672, and declared himself late of Province of Maryland. and directed that his house and lands in Maryland "lately purchased of Richard Ewens" be sold and the money divided among his brothers and sisters. It therefore placed his property in Anne Arundel County and Richard Ewens was closely associated with Colonel William Burges in the settlement of South River. Besides Colonel Burges married as his second wife the widow of Richard Ewens.

 

Joesph Burgess bequeathed to his brothers William, Samuel and Jeremiah and sisters Anne and Mary. He appointed his father-in-law, (Step Father) John Keynes of Marlborugh , Gent, the executor of his estate and requested him to give "unto my dear mother, his now wife, and to my bothers Issac And Danile and to my sister Elzabeth Parker" each a gold ring priced at 20 shillings, His will was probated in England as well as Anne Arundel County, Maryland, on November 20 1672, but it was recorded in the Maryland book as "Burger".

 

John Keynes of County Wilts, Gent, was granted letters of administration as vouched for by Sir Robert Hanson, Lord Mayor of London. Keynes granted power of attorney to Thomas Taylor of Anne Arundel County, Maryland who on May 22, 1674, filed the will with the court of Anne Arundel County. The destruction of the deeds for that county during that period prevents knowledge of the disposition of the land.

 

Coats-of-arms were issued early to various branches in England, although very few, if any, original records of the family are extant in Maryland to ascertain the armorial seals on their documents. The recorded will of Colonel Burges definitely indicates that he place a seal beside his signature. By his will of 1685 he bequeathed his seal ring to his daughter, Susann Sewall, instead of his son and heir. The reason cannot be accounted for under the light of present research except that she had contracted politically the best match of his children, her husband Major Nicholas Sewall, being a step-son of Charles, the 3rd Baron of Baltimore.

 

In politics the emigrant Maryland was definitely aligned with the liberal forces in the Province and for a time he may have favoured the Quakers, as in 1658 he stated that "it was in con case lawful to Swear". If he had Quaker nourishing, he was not disposed to their peaceful weakness of not fighting, as he was actively and aggressively engaged in Indian Warfare and against the Established Govt. His merchandising interests brought him much wealth, Inasmuch as Joesph Burges of Wiltshire and Maryland and William Burges of South River were both interested in importing and exporting, it leans a sympathetic association of the two brothers.

 

Although he married a maiden from Accoman County Virginia, the courting occurred in Anne Arundel, where she had been brought by kinsmen. No record has been found of his being in Va prior to his settlement on South River. The fact that his last will and testament was probated at the Prerogative Count of Canterbury indicated that he maintained an estate in England.

 

In 1742 William Burgess who styled himself a traveler made a deed of gift to Mrs. Margaret Whips of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, of all his European goods "Which I last May sent for and Expect into Phila Pa before Xmas nest from my brother-in-law the Rev. Mr. John Merriwether". No placement has been made with the clan on South River.

 

 

At the Rev. War the scions were vigorously engaged in the conflict with England, a number of them holding commissions in the Maryland Line and the Continental Establishments with the results that they became original members of the Society of Cincinnati.

 

Another branch of the Burgess which did not engage the spotlight as prominently as the one on South River was seated in Charles County as an early date, and so far no relationship has been proved between the two branches.

 

William Burgess, was about 28 when he emigrated to the Province of Maryland in 1650. It was not until 2/9/1658-59 that he received his land rights for his emigration. He was granted "all the parcel of land called the Burgh lying on the west side of the Chesapeake Bay and on the south side of a River in the Bay called South River next adjoining to land laid out unto George Westill and Thomas Beeson".

 

About the time of his settlement , the non-conformist were coming up from Va to the Severn plantations and immediately became involved with the proprietary authorities over their unorthodox tendencies, eventually involving the young Province in Civil War. During the days of the Commonwealth, William was definitely a member of the Puritan Party and actively participated in the Revolution which overthrew the Gov. and established the Provine under a group of Parliamentary Commissioners. It was he who with, Richard Ewens, whose widow he later married, and others sat as a Councill of War and condemned to death practically all the Proprietary Councilors and several of the lesser men. Although the life of some was ultimately spared, William Eltonhead and others faced the firing squad.

 

After the downfall of the Cromwellian in England, Lord Baltimore regained control of this Province, at which time William Burgess aligned himself with the liberal element under Gov. Josia Fendall. At a meeting of the Council held on July 22, 1658, the High Sheriff of Anne Arundel County reported that all Justices of the Peace had taken the oath "all but William Burgess and Thomas Mears who pretended it was in no case lawful to swear." He held Office of Justice of the Peace during the Commonwealth, for at a court held in and for Anne Arundel County, On March 13, 1656, Capt. Wm. Burges was one of the Commissioners. There is definite proof that he was a Justice of the Peace for Anne Arundel.

 

At the General Assembly which met at St. Clement's Manor in St. Mayr's County from Feb. to Mar. 1659/60 "Lt. William Burges" presented his credential as being elected by the freeholders of Anne Arundel County, He certainly represented his county in 1664, inasmuch as the Assembly for that year voted "Capt. William Burges" 1050 lbs, of tobacco under the heading of "Burgesses Expenses their necessary expenses for meat, drink and lodgings for themselves and charges for boate". He consistently served in the Lower House from 1669 to 1682.

 

In 1663 as Capt. William Burgess, he was High Sheriff for Anne Arundel County, and in 1683 Col. William Burges and his son, Edward Burges, were among those who were commissioned to "Survey and Manage the Building of the Court House".

 

As early as 1660, he was addressed as Lt. and in 1664 as Capt,. In 1667 he was ordered to "raise out of several companies of militia in Anne Arundel County 62 men to proceed against the Indians". The Council in session during 1675 ordered "Col. Samuel Chew and Major William Burges...doe immediately raise the forces under Thier command to follow and pursue the enemies (Indians) who had committed several murders at the head of Anne Arundel County". On July 13, 1676, Col. William Burgess was ordered to attend a Council of War to be held at St. Mary's on 20th of that month.

 

The council preceded the declaration of war against the Nanticoke Indians on the Eastern Shore, at which time he was made the Commander-in-Chief. He was ordered to raise a detachment of troops from St. Mary's, Calvert and Charles Counties and to sail for the mouth of the Nanticoke River where he was to assume command as "Command in Chief" of a detachment of troops from Dorchester, Talbot, Kent and Cecil Counties. His commission, rather lengthy, empowered him to negotiate a treaty of peace with the Emperor of the Nanticoke in council with Col. Henry Coursey, Christopher Rousby, Col. William Colebourne, William Stevens and John White. For his services he was voted 6000 lobs of Tobacco.

 

After his campaign on the Eastern Shore he assisted Col. George Wells and other military leaders on the frontier in Baltimore County. In 1681 he was referred to as Col. William Burgess, a Protestant, and in command of the Foot in Anne Arundel County.

 

In or about 1683 he was appointed by Lord Baltimore a member of the Proprietary Council.. He took his seat for the first time during the session of Oct. to Nov 1683. He continued to serve in that capacity until his death.

 

On July 22, 1674, as Captain William Burgess, he purchased form George Wells, of Baltimore County, John Wells, of Kent County, and Robert Wells of Kent county, all sons of Richard Wells, late of Herring Creek, deceased inasmuch as "Lord Baltimore Granted on Sept. 11, 1663, to Richard Wells, Surgeon, Benjamin Choice, Lying westward of Herring Creek in the woods containing 280 acres and adjoining the land of Francis Holland and Whereas Lord Baltimore granted to Joesph Morley "Morleys Lot' of 300 acres, ....therefore for 30,000 lbs of tobacco Capt. William Burgess was conveyed "Benjamin's Choice" "Morley's Lot", "Bednall Green" and "Benjamin's Addition". Blanche Wells wife of George, and Ann Wells wife of John waived all dower rights.

 

Col William Burgess styled himself of "South River" in his last will and testament dated July 11, 1685, and probated in Anne Arundell County on 2/19/1686-87. It was also probated at the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, England. The witness where Thomas France, Michael Cusick, John Harrison, William Elvridge and John Edwards.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The English origin of William BURGESS of Anne Arundel Co., MD would point

to Marlborough, Wiltshire.  Joseph BURGES of Wilts., England and Anne Arundel

Co., MD wrote his will in 1672 and named his mother, then the wife of John

KEYNES of Marlborough, and brothers and sisters Isaac, Daniel, Elizabeth,

William, Samuel, Jeremia, Anne, and Mary. (MD. Cal. of Wills 1:81) 

 

Further connection is shown that on 30 Nov. 1672 John KEYNES of Marlborough,

Wiltshire produced a deed to Benjamin LAWRENCE of Marlborough, chandler, for

the sale of land in Anne Arundel Co., MD, and a letter of attorney to William

BURGES, Thomas TAYLOR, Nathaniel HEATHWICKE, and George PUDDINGTON so that

KEYNES could enter the land and give possession to LAWRENCE. (Peter Wilson

Coldham, "Lord Mayor's Court of London Depositions Relating to Americans," 1980).

 

Harry Wright NEWMAN in "Anne Arundel Gentry, 2nd. Ed., Vol. 1, went as far

to hint, but not actually state the brother William named in the will of Joseph

was the William BURGESS of Anne Arundel Co., MD.  Robert W. BARNES in "British

Roots of Maryland Families" stated that William of Maryland was the William

bap. 2 July 1626 at St. Peter and Paul, Marlborough, son of William BURGESS,

and brother to Joseph BURGESS bap. 11 Feb. 1611, and Daniel born ca. 1612.  He

also stated it was this Joseph that wrote the MD will. There are errors in this

identification of Joseph, as shown below from the church records, and the will

of John KEYNES. If William of Maryland were the above son of William BURGES, it

would be very strange that no mention was made of him in his will written in 1640.

 

The will of William BURGIS of Marlborough, Wiltshire was written 14 June

1640, probated 6 Nov. 1641. (Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills, (1641),

129 Evelyn, FHL microfilm 092151)  He named his wife Alice BURGES; daughter

Mary the wife of Edward PUTTMAN; daughter Martha wife of Edward HUTCHINS;

daughter Elizabeth BURGIS, his youngest daughter, for her marriage portion

the bond of 100 pounds due unto him from Mr. Christopher FOWLER, and also

bequeathed her additional sums of money; son Isacke BURGIS; Mary and

Elizbeth BURGIS daughters of Joseph BURGIS, deceased; the lease he bought

in Gloucestershire and made over to his son Joseph, deceased, to be held

by his daughter-in-law Elizabeth BURGIS and her mother during their lives;

residue to son Daniel who was made executor.  Very good friends brother-in-law

William BLISSETT, Thomas HUNT, and William BARNES were overseers. Wit.:

Nicholas PROFFITT, William BLISSETT, Jun., George THOMAS.

 

Wills exist for his son Joseph BURGESS, of "Almonsberie" Gloucestershire,

written 22 Mar. 1638, and probated 15 Nov. 1639 (Prerogative Court of

Canterbury Wills, (1639), 178 Harvey, FHL microfilm 92145) and this William's

brother-in-law William BLISSETT of Marlborough, Gentleman, written 12 Nov. 1642,

probated 29 Dec. 1646 (PCC Wills, (1646) 183 Twisse, FHL microfilm 92162)

that have not been abstracted here.
