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:
