  • Burrells of Northumbria

    Working on my ancestor John Burrell, 9th generation in England, who was emigrant John Burrell in this country. He was baptised in Berwick, Northumber- land, England, 24 May, 1597, married Hester Winchester in Minden Chapel, Parish of Hitchen, Herfordshire, 25 November, 1622, and had Maurice John, born 3 May, 1626, and Zeckariah. He married a second wife, Alice Heath. He came over to Weathersfield, Ct., with his second wife and his two sons, John and Zeckariah, by his first wife. Allegedly he was exiled to America by King James VI to quell the border wars. Any further information on his exile would be appreciated!
