One of my immigrant ancestors was John Burrage. This is what Charles Henry Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts" says about him:


John, Charleston, 1637. Clerk of the market, ferryman. He was age 45 in 1662. Wife Mary adm. church with him 10 (2) 1642. He m. #2 Joanna Stower (age 47 in 1671) who d. Dec. 25, 1680. Children: Mary bapt. 8 (3) 1641, (m. John Marshall), Hannah b. 14 (10) 1643 (m. John French), John, age 22 in 1668, Elizabeth (m. Thomas Deane) Nathaniel, b. 1655, d, 1656, William b. June 10, 1657, Saraah b. 24 (11) 1658-9 )m. Wm. Johnson), Bethia bapt. 26 (3) 1661, Thomas b. May 26, 1663, Ruth b. Feb. 28, 1664-5 (m. Ignatius White), Joanna d. 16 (4) 1668.

He d. 19 (8) 1685. Inv.filed by widow Joanna 15 Dec. following. Her inv. was taken 13 (1) 1689-90. An agreement for division of the estate was made 2 May, 1694, by Mary Marshall, Hannah French, Elizabeth Poor, William, Bethiah and Thomas B., Sarah Johnson, Ruth White, and Susanna. dau. of John B., dec.
My line of descent comes through Mary Burrage and John Marshall. Two generations later, Hannah Burrage French's granddaughter, Abigail Parker, married Mary and John's grandson, also named John Marshall.

I'd be interestedin hearing from anyone else who shares these ancestors.
