      WILLIAM BURDETT (BURCHITT, BURDITT)
      William Burdett (Burchitt, Burditt), an ancient planter, came to Virginia on the Susan in 1615. In early 1625 he was living on the Eastern Shore, where he was a 25-year-old servant on Captain William Eppes's plantation (74). Sometime prior to 1634 he obtained a leasehold on Old Plantation Creek (73) and, as time went on, accumulated massive amounts of land by means of the headright system. In January 1634 William Burdett was appointed a commissioner of Accomack's monthly court, and a year later he became a vestryman. In 1639 he was elected a burgess. When he made his will on July 22, 1643, he identified himself as a resident of Northampton County and made bequests to his wife, Alice, and Thomas Burdett, his only son. By early October he was dead (CBE 68; PB 1 Pt. 1:157; Pt. 2:657, 713; AMES 1:8, 39, 153; 2:293-295, 307-308).

      Susan Gillberg Research Notes 2012-11-06
      per your records -- William Burditt was the 2nd spouse of Alicia and Alicia the 2nd spouse of William Burditt, and Elizabeth Burditt is listed as born about 1624, your records herein might better read that Elizabeth Burditt who m. Thomas Newman was the daughter of a 1st unknown wife of William Burditt or his sister; this is to untangle the problems created by that "about 1624" birthdate for Elizabeth; George Traveller died about 1643 or so; and he is accounted to be Alicia's 1st husband. And you have listed that William m1st 1636 to Frances Leake. Both the 1636 and 1643 DOM leave out of the equation the birth of Elizabeth given as abt 1624.
      My own thought on it is that Elizabeth (Burditt) Newman would be younger sister of William, if the DOB given is to stand. And so I have placed her in my own dbase. Just to eliminate conflicts in the records.
