Question: I have found a series of old family correspondence about a colonial ancestor Edward Burton. I know only he was living in Hingham, Mass. in the 1600's. Can you tell me what might be the latest work on this immigrant.
Answer: The latest work on Edward Burton who died in Hingham, Mass. ca. 1670 appears in The Great Migration Begins, 1:283-85. As a member of NEHGS you can see the sketch that was prepared by Robert Charles Anderson online at: http://www.americanancestors.org/PageDetail.aspx?recordId=135633666
