BURBAGE, BURBRIDGE, GRANT, WELLS -
I am interested in finding BURBRIDGE information, also maybe spelled Burbage or variant ... Specifically Ezekiel--father of Thomas (x Christina), Rowland (Roland) x Jane Wells and Julia x F. Grant.
Ezekiel settled in VA, supposedly ca. 1730s with his parents when they came to US. Zeke would have been under age yet at that time. Suspected birth ca. 1710-1727. No records to prove anything one way or the other. I think he had a brother Thomas who died. 1790, Spottsylvania. I have Zeke named in an old obit, but nothing concrete to prove too much. Thank you. ...
