Early BURLINGAME History

The original inhabitants of what is now known as England were the Celts who in turn were invaded by the Romans and the Celts were driven into what is now Scotland and Ireland. These invaders were known as Britons. After the withdrawal of the Roman forces about the beginning of the fifth century, the South Britons were no longer able to withstand the attacks of the Scots and Picts. They applied for assistance from the Roman General Aetius, but he was too much involved in the struggle with Attila to attend to their petitions. In desperation the Britons sought the aid of the Saxons; and according to Anglo-Saxon narratives, three ships containing 1,600 men, were dispatched to their help under the command of the brothers Hengest and Horan. These Saxons were assigned the isle of Thanet for habitation, and from there marched against the northern foe obtaining complete victory. The date assigned to these events by the later Anglo-Saxon Chronicles is 449 AD. The Chronicles also states that the Saxons, finding the land desirable, turned their arms against the Britons, and reinforced by new bands, the Jutes and Angles, conquered first Kent and ultimately the larger part of the island. These Saxons, Jutes and Angles were Teutonic tribesmen coming from the country about the mouths of the Elbe and Weser Rivers in ancient Germany. This struggle continued for about 150 years and at the end of that time most of the South of Briton was in the hands of these Teutonic tribes. This conquered territory was then divided into small states. In 571 or 575 A.D. the Kingdom of East Angeles was founded by Uffa. This in turn was broken up into petty chieftaincies, one of them being BURLINGHAM, which means Byrl, “the cup bearer”, “ing” is the Saxon suffix meaning “son” and “hame” is the Angle suffix meaning “home or clan”, or in other words, home or clan of the sons of ByrL Here the clans of BURLINGHAM lived and prospered until early in the ninth century when the Danes, another Low German tribe, began making raids on this section and as these attacks became more frequent and in time the Danes had conquered all of what is now the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridge. The BURLINGHAMs were driven from their homes and fled into Wessex. By a treaty made at Wedmore in 878 A.D., the English King, Alfred the Great, had recognized the conquest of theses Danes and made a pact with Guthrum, their leader. By this treaty, the Danes were allowed to retain the land they had conquered, but they must be baptized. After peace was established, the BURLINGHAM returned to their homes, but with the lost of most of their property, they established new homes and made a fresh start. The name of BURLINGHAM and BYRLINGHAMINGA appear quite frequently in the ancient Saxon Chronicles; the final suffix “inga” being dropped prior to the Norman Invasion in the eleventh century. The suffix “ing” still remains in many English names and coupled with the Anglo suffix “hame” meaning home or clan, gives us such names as Birmingham, Burlingham, Cheltingham, Cunningham, Dillingham, etc..  These names ending in “ingahams” are not common in the south of England. In East Angila, the “ingahams” are quite numerous. In Suffolk they are found in the northern part, at no considerable distance from the Waveney River and in Norfolk in the south along the Waveney and Yare Rivers and near the coast of the now famous Norfolk Broads.

The name BURLINGHAM was spelled in many ways, some of which are: BYRLINGHAM (Worcester Rolls, 972 AD); BAELINGAM (Crawford Charters, 998 AD); BERLINGENAM, BIRLINGHAM, BERLINGAHAM, BURLINGHAM, BERLINGHAM, (Domesday Book, 1086 AD); BERLINGAHAM, BURLINGHAM, BURLINGAME (Fleet of Fines 1198 AD). After the twelfth century, the name was generally spelled BURLINGHAM.

In the County of Norfolk, east of Norwich the cathedral city, on the Yare River; halfway between Norwich and Yarmouth and near Acle are three parishes known as: Burlingham St. Peter, Burlingham St. Andrew, and Burlingham St. Edmund. Mr. and Mrs. Melvin R. BURLINGAME of Minneapolis, MN visited these places in England in 1960 and while there gathered considerable data on the BURLINGHAMs of Norfolk County, England, much of which appears in the following records. The Church, Burlingham St. Peter in North Burlingham, was built about 1050 AD and is now in complete ruins and overgrown with brush. Burlingham St. Andrew was built about 1275 AD and is still standing but is no longer in use. In this church is a monument to the Robert BURLINGHAM family. Burlingham St. Edmund is located in South Burlingham and was built around 1500 AD and is still used occasionally. About three-fourths of a mile from Burlingham St. Edmund stands Burlingham Hall, also built about 1500 AD and was the home of some of the early BURLINGHAMs. While in England, Mr. and Mrs. Melvin BURLINGAME met the gentleman, who a few years before had discovered a tunnel that ran from Burlingham St. Edmund to Burlingham Hall. When this tunnel was built and for what purpose is unknown; it has been sealed off many, many years ago and forgotten about. Burlingham Hall is one of the show places of England and is still used as a residence. The last time Kaiser Willhelm visited his grandmother, Queen Victoria of England, his royal party were quartered in Burlingham Hall, now a part of the Crown Lands.

Many of these early BURLINGHAMs served as knights and in turn were granted a fee. A Knight’s fee was the first, most universal, esteemed and most honorable species of land holding, and an owner of a Knight’s fee, or in other words, a Knight, in feudal times was bound to attend his Lord to the wars for forty days for each fee held, besides other incidents peculiar to the age of chivalry. Oft times a Lordship grew out of these Knight̓s fees. (For further description of Knighthood and Knight̓s fees see Blackstone̓s “Commentaries on the Common Laws of England.”) The title of Knight was not hereditary, but the right to use their coat-of-arms was permissable.

Many of the early records of Norfolk County, England have been destroyed and are by no means complete. Some of the BURLINGHAMs mentioned in the early records are as follows:

Hugh DE BIRLINGHAM, knighted by William the Conqueror about 1075 AD.

Walterus DE BIRLINGHAM was a witness to a deed confirming a grant to the Abbey of St. Benel of Holme, Norfolk County in 1163 AD.

Elfide BIRLINGHAM was granted land in Birmingham and said grant was witnessed by Nicholas DE BIRLINGHAM. No date given.

In the fourth year of the reign of King John (1203 AD), a fine was levied between Joceline DE BURLINGHAM and Matilda, his wife; William DE BURLINGHAM and Margaret, his wife; John DE DEPENAM and Isabel, his wife, and Emme, their sister, to Edwin CARPENTER and Jeffrey DE AMBLIE for 32 acres in Massingham, a half a knight̓s fee in Begheton, no consideration mentioned, but 20 marks of silver mentioned for the knight̓s fee. (Evidently this was the settlement of an estate.)

John DE DEPENHAM and Isabel his wife, leases to Joceline DE BURLINGHAM and Matilda, his wife, 5 acres in Oxburg at 18 shillings sterling, and 12 acres in Burlingham, the regrant for the lives of Joceline and Matilda at 4 shillings per year, for which regrant they pay 5 marks of silver.

Ailward DE BIRLINGHAM and Edwin, his son, leases Lingwode land to Gilbert DE LINGWODE and Richard, his son (ca. 1205 AD)

William, son of Brictric DE BIRLINGHAM, granted lands in South Berlingham, no date given.

In the “Monasticon Anglicanum of Dugdale” is a charter of confirmation from King Henry III in the 19th year of his reign (1235 AD) listing donatories to the founding and maintenance of a Benedictine Monastery at Bungay, is the following notations: “ – of the gift of Roger, son of Rynuld DE BIRLINGHAM, thirty denarates of the rent of the lands of which Robert HOG of Lingwood holds of the same Roger.”  Another entry reads: “ – of the gift of Roger, son of Rynuld DE BIRLINGHAM, one-half of all white fish.” If said Roger was able to contribute such a sum to the maintenance of the Monastery, it is probable that he held at least one Knight̓s fee and probably more than one fee.

George DE BIRLINGHAM held one fee in the 41st year of the reign of Henry III (1250 AD) but was not a Knight.

1288 AD – 16th year of the reign of King Edward I – Matilda DE CATTON, widow of Alexander DE BIRLINGHAM, sells St. Martin land to Robert DE MARTHAM.

This effort is extracted from Nelson BURLINGAME, Burlingame Manuscript I.  Merrilan, Wisconsin: Privately Printed, 1971, pages 2-272, passim.  BURLINGAME’S undocumented study comprises several volumes, tracing the BURLINGAME family from colonial times to the present.  Additional data is from material assembled by the late Glen ALLEN of Topeka, Kansas and his recently deceased sister, Mrs. Maxine HOBBLE, of Wakarusa, Kansas, both of whom were active in researching the MATTOCKS, the RUGG, and the BURLINGAME families.  Sources that I have been able to document are cited immediately following the data.


ROGER BURLINGAME, son of Thomas and Elizabeth (HOWARD) BURLINGAME, born Kent Co., England Jan. 24, 1620, died Mashantatack (Cranston), R.I., Sept. 1, 1718 (VR of RI, 1st series, vol. II:52); married, first, England, about 1646, Jacolyn HUNTINGDON, died England; married, second, Warwick, R.I., Oct. 3, 1663 Mrs. MARY (LIPPITT) BARLINSTONE, born Providence Plantations, R.I., March 3, 1643, died Mashantatack July 5, 1718, daughter of John and Martha (_____) LIPPITT and widow of William BARLINSTONE, whom she had married on March 23, 1661.  See below for information regarding John LIPPITT.

At the age of sixteen Roger BURLINGAME enlisted in the British Army, serving in the regiment of his uncle, Roger BURLINGHAM, and eventually reaching the rank of Captain.  After his marriage and the birth of his son, Captain Roger BURLINGAME and his company were ordered to America; he landed with his troops at Boston on May 10, 1650.  Soon after reaching America he resigned his commission and went up into the Connecticut Valley for the purpose of purchasing a farm, with the intention of bringing his wife and child to America, only to learn that his wife had died.

He was a witness to Court held at Stonington, Conn. in 1654.  He and Thomas GRIFFIAN (said to have been the brother-in-law of Roger BURLINGAME, having married his sister, Elizabeth BURLINGAME) purchased one hundred acres of land on Feb. 16, 1656 at Pequot (now New London), Conn. located on the east side ‘of the brook Called misticke’.  (Suffolk Deed III:455).  He sold this farm on March 1, 1659.

John HARRUD, Roger BURLINGHAM and Thomas RALPH were recognized as the first English settlers of Mashantatuck (Sidney S. Rider, History of Rhode Island Lands).  The three settlers claimed to have had a grant from the Cooweeseette Indians bearing the date of June 6, 1662 for 4000 acres at Patuxet, at a place called either Mashantatack or Paquabuck (Providence Town Papers 0120,I:53).  By order of the General Assembly of Sept. 25, 1671, they were ordered to make the rate and levy the assessments on the inhabitants of Mashantatack.

Roger BURLINGHAM was elected Deputy to represent Warwick at the General Assembly of May 6, 1690.  However, he was not accepted as Deputy since he claimed residence in two jurisdictions (Warwick and Mashantatuck; the Assembly declared the election illegal, ruling that BURLINGHAM resided in Mashantatuck (Proceedings of the General Assembly May 16, 1690).  At a Town Meeting of Elections on June 6, 1698 Roger BURLINGAME was chosen as one of seven members of the Town Council.

Roger BURLINGAME and his family were of the Quaker faith.  For many years up until 1711, the “Friends” held their meetings in his mansion house (May Day Souvenir of May 2, 1882, The Oak Lawn Baptist Church of Providence).

[JOHN LIPPITT, born England in 1597, died Warwick, 1667 and MARTHA (MARY?) his wife, settled in Salem, Mass.  In September, 1635, Roger WILLIAMS and others were banished from Salem because of their religious views.  In 1636 WILLIAMS and four companions built their homes in the wilderness on land he purchased from the Indians.  In 1638 there were two divisions of this land and John LIPPITT’s name was sixth on a list of fifty-two persons who then held homelots in Providence Plantations.  On May 2, 1640 John LIPPITT signed a compact containing proposals for a form of government under the first charter.  In 1647 he represented Providence Plantations as it met with other towns for the purpose of forming a government.  He removed to Warwick, becoming a recorded landowner in 1648, the year he was elected a member of the Warwick Town Council.  Children: Nathaniel; John married Ann GREEN or GROVE; Mary; Moses married Mary KNOWLES; Joseph; Rebecca married Joseph HOWARD (Children’s names from Genealogy of R.I. Families from the NEHGR.  Baltimore: GPC, 1989. Vol. I:661)].

[page 2]

Roger BURLINGAME’s will, dated Nov. 28, 1715 and proved Sept. 13, 1718, named his wife Mary [who had predeceased him], daughters Mercy, Alice, sons Roger, Peter, Thomas, John, as well as several grandchildren and two sons-in-law.  All children were to share equally, the moveable estate being valued at 199 pounds: 13: 8.  Son Roger received fifty acres, and John, Thomas, and Roger received 20s. each.

Glen ALLEN, (hereafter GA), stated that Roger’s father was George Thomas BURLINGAME from Darwich, Kent, England.  He wrote that Roger̓s first wife was Mary (_____) with whom he had one son, Roger, Jr., born in England.  He then married in Rhode Island in October, 1663 Widow Mary BARLINGSTON with whom he had four children.  In 1672 he married Mary LIPPETT with whom he had five children.  ALLEN also indicated that Mary LIPPETT was the daughter of John and Mary LIPPETT and an older sister of Martha LIPPETT who married Roger BURLINGAME’s son, Thomas.

CLARK BURLINGAME, son of Ephriam and Julia STETSON (?) BURLINGAME, born West Greenwich, R.I. Oct. 17, 1757, died Door Village, LaPorte, Indiana Jan. 13, 1843; married Fairfield, Franklin Co., Vermont Dec. 6. 1777 PATIENCE SOPER, born Fairfield Nov. 7, 1757, died Utica, N.Y. July 24, 1829, believed to be the daughter of Dr. Joel and Rachel (HILLS) SOPER (Glen ALLEN).

Clark BURLINGAME served in the Vermont Militia in Captain Jonas GALUSHA’s Company, Colonel HERRICK’s Regiment for eight days service in the alarm of October, 1780.  The company marched 55 miles; he was paid 1:9:0 (Rolls of Soldiers in the Revolutionary War, 1775-1783, op. cit., p. 247).  A family legend from his grandson says he was a member of Colonel Sam HERRICK’s Regiment of thirty men who attacked Skenesboro during the battle of Ft. Ticonderoga in May, 1775.  No record of this reported service has been found (Glen ALLEN̓s notes).  **Check rolls for GALUSHA’s and HERRICK’s hometowns**

In 1790 Clark and family were residents of Smithfield, Chittenden Co., Vt.  The household consisted of two males over 16, two males under 16, and seven females (U.S. Census 1790).  He was one of the first Justices of the Peace in Fletcher, Chittenden County, Vermont and in 1798 he was Justice in Fairfield.  He was deeded land in “Fairfield, formerly called Smithfield”, County of Chittenden on October 19, 1793 and again on Sept. 6, 1794 (Fairfield, Franklin County Land Records 2:163 and 2:164).  [Obviously Fairfield County on the Canadian border was formed from the northern part of Chittenden County].  The family’s removal from this area is signaled by land deeds executed in 1798 and 1799.  Clark BURLINGAME sold 100 acres in 1797, additional land also in 1797 and 150 acres on March 3, 1798 (Fairfield, Franklin Co. Land Records 3:150, 4:70, and 3:171).  Two deeds executed in 1798 and 1799 describe him as a resident of Tinmouth, Rutland Co, Vt.  On Dec. 29, 1798 Clark BURLINGAME of Tinmouth signed at Tinmouth a deed transferring title of land in Smithfield

[page 5]

Franklin Co. and on March 6, 1799 he returned to Fairfield where he signed a deed, neither of which were co-signed by his wife (Fairfield Land Records 4:71 and 4:110).

The following year three families of BURLINGAMEs, Clark, Ephriam, and Wanton, were residing in Queensbury, Washington County, N.Y.  (1800 New York Census, Washington Co. Clark BURLINGIM, p. 210; Ephriam BURLINGIM, p. 202; Wonton BURLINGIM, p. 201).  *Check Composition of each household*

By 1805 Clark and family were residing in Attica, then part of Genessee Co., New York.  He is named as being among those immigrants – a carpenter by trade – who came to Attica Town in 1805, locating up Crow Creek near the center of town.  (F.W. Beers, History of Wyoming Co., N.Y.  New York: F.W. Beers, 1880, p. 126-7).  A deed for land purchased from the Holland Land Co. (Town 10, Range 2) was recorded in 1805.  **Source – probably Karen Livsey. Western NY Land Transactions. Baltimore: GPC, 1996. Check*

In 1810 the family was found in Sheldon, Genessee County.  **Census composition**  Patience is believed to have died in 1829 in Augusta or Utica, Oneida Co., N.Y. where her parents and son, Clark, lived.  In 1830 Clark, Sr. was living next door to sons Spencer and Abel in Putnam Co., Indiana.  **Census**  In 1840 he was in Milwaukee with his son Spencer.  **Census**  He was living in Door Township, LaPorte Co., Indiana when he died and was buried in Kingston Cemetery of that county in 1843.  (Margaret Waters. Rev. Soldiers Buried in Indiana (1942). Baltimore: GPC, 1967 and Glen ALLEN notes).

1.  Amey Sept. 6, 1778

2.  EUNICE LORRAINE, born Jan. 14, 1781, died probably Gerry, Chautauqua Co., N.Y., Jan. 5, 1857; married probably Queensbury, Washington Co., N.Y., Jan. 24, 1802 ICHABOD MAITOCKS, born Litchfield, Conn. Dec. 23, 1773, died Independence, Allegany Co., N.Y. Mar. 4, 1833, son of James and Sarah (PIERCE) MATTOCKS.  Their son James MATTOCKS married Elizabeth ‘Betsy’ RUGG, their daughter Cornelia Adele MNITOCKS and her husband Clark Benjamin ELY were the parents of Lilly Victoria (ELY) LITTLE.

(Glen ALLEN’s grandmother claimed the Eunice-Ichabod wedding took place at Utica, New York.  No record of this marriage except a bible record of the date has been found (Notes of Glen ALLEN).  The BURLINGAME and MATTOCKS families were near neighbors in the 1800 Queensbury, N.Y. census (Census, Washington Co., pages 209-10).

3.  Abel, born Jan. 19, 1783, died Green Lake, Wis., Nov. 5, 1853; married Jan. 29, 1812 Mary BURLINGAME, daughter of Wanton and Lucy (STONE) BURLINGAME.  Abel served in the War of 1812.  (Abel married Polly BROTHERS-Glen ALLEN notes).
