Israel andEunice Burlingame had settled in Weathersfield, VT. by 1773 where heran a tannery on Dodge Creek. Israel was active in the town affairs ofWeathersfield, serving as Town Clerk, a Representative to the GeneralAssembly, and a Representative in the town Committee during theRevolutionary War. In addition, in 1775 Israel served as a Lieutenantfrom Weathersfield VT. in Hilkiah Grout's Company of the UpperRegiment of Cumberland County, N.Y. in the Revolutionary War. Vermontwas part of the state of New York at the time. He also served in aReturn of Men and Horses employed by Capt. Abel Marsh in carryingflour from the Connecticut River to Battenkill for the use of theNorthern Army by order of Jacob Bayley dated 13 Oct. 1777.Rickertson Burlingame had removed from Weathersfield, VT. by 1799 andsettled in Oxford, Chenango County, N.Y.

Lydiahad been born on 10 July 1782 in Egremont, Berkshire Co., MA. andremoved to Oxford, N.Y. with her father and step-mother, Hannah(Hollenbeck) Fitch by 1798. Rickertson Burlingame was a surveyor, aswell as a farmer. He came into the employ of the Holland Land Companyas a surveyor at the latest by 1813. Several sources state that hesurveyed the town of Oxford, N.Y. for the Holland Land Co. By1810,Rickertson and Lydia had removed to the Village of Cayuga, CayugaCounty, N.Y. Rickertson served as an Ensign in the Militia of TiogaCounty, N.Y. under Lieut. Col. Benjamin Hovey during the War of 1812. Rickertson's employment with the Holland Land Company took himto the site of present day Ellicottville, Cattaraugus County, N.Y."The first land contracts issued by the Holland Land Company withinthe limits of the town (of Ellicottville) were in 1813, and toRickertson Burlingame, Harvey B. Hayes, Archelaus and Orrin Brown,Amos Ingalls, and Grove Hurlbut." (History of Cattaraugus Co., NewYork, p. 253, Pub. Philadelphia: L.H. Everts, 1879). The pioneersettler of Ellicottville was Grove Hurlbut. In the spring of 1815,Grove left his family in Arkport, Steuben Co. and went alone to thearea that was known as the Western Reserve to assess the land forsettling. He did not like the lands in that region and returned inabout 6 weeks. The route on his return took him through present dayEllicottville, "where Rickertson Burlingame was at the time surveying.Upon inquiring as to the lands he was informed that he would have togo to the land-office at Batavia for information." (History ofCattaraugus Co., New York, p. 248, Pub. Philadelphia: L.H. Everts,1879) Rickertson Burlingame came into this region(Ellicottville, N.Y.) from Oxford, Chenango Co., as a surveyor in theemploy of the Holland Land Company. Traversed the hills and valleys ofCattaraugus and through the deep-tangled forests by the blaze upontrees made in the original township surveys. He assisted in thesub-division of the town into lots, surveyed and mapped the villageplat of Ellicottville, and made the map which was adopted by authorityupon the incorporation of the village in 1837. After he had finishedthe greater portion of his survey he located lot No. 62, an irregulartract of land lying on Great Valley Creek and beyond the regular tierof lots, containing about 300 acres. His first dwelling was a logstructure, erected near the banks of the creek. Upon this farm hepassed the remainder of his life, and was buried within the groundwhich he had cleared and cultivated." (History of Cattaraugus Co., NewYork, pp. 249-250, 1879) Rickertson settled in Ellicottvillewith his family in 1817. He owned lots 62 and 21 in 1822.

Note: Mashantatack is now Cranston Roger Burlingham was serving in the British Army (1649 era) in theregiment of his Uncle Roger Burlingham, and had attained the rank ofCaptain, when he received orders to embark with his company ofsoldiers for the American Colonies. He arrived in Boston on 10 May,1650. Shortly after his arrival in America he was obliged to resignhis commission, due to disagreements with the Puritan Authorities andhe embarked for the Rhode Island Territory. He appeared as a witness in court in 1654 at Stonington, CT. Hepurchased a farm near Pequoit, CT on 16 Feb 1656 which he sold on 1Mar 1659 and in 1660 relocated to Warwick, RI. Roger Burlingame, Thomas Ralph and John Harrud purchased, from theCooweeseete Indians, 4,000 acres of land at Pawtuxet, RI, which wasclose to Mashantacktack and later was renamed Cranston, RI. The deedwas dated 6 June 1662. Roger had married previously in England before embarking with histroops for the Americas, his intention being to send for his wife,Jacolynn and infant son after settling in the colony. He receivedword however, that his wife had passed away. Roger's second marriagewas to Mary Lippitt, the young widow of John Barlingstone who haddrowned off the coast of Rhode Island. Roger was of the Quaker Faith and meetings of the "Friends" were heldat his mansion until 1711.~~ THE BURLINGAME BIOGRAPHY: Roger was born 24 Jan 1620 (Doherty and Jacox both say 1638) inDarwich, Kent, England married Jacolyn Huntingdon about 1646 inEngland. After Jacolyn's death, Roger married Mary Lippitt, daughterof John Lippitt and Martha (??) on 3 Oct 1663 in Warick, RI. Rogerdied on 1 Sep 1718 in Mashantatack, Providence, RI at age 98. Hisestate was valued at 199 pounds, 13 shillings, 8 pence, and included amare, three cows, three yearlings, a calf, two sheep, two swine, anold sword, clothing, scales, cash, etc. He enlisted in the British Army at age 16, serving in his uncle RogerBurlingham's regiment, and eventually became a Captain. His companywas sent to America, landing at Boston, MA on 10 May 1650. Soonthereafter he resigned his commission. He went to Connecticut,intending to buy a farm and send for his wife and son in England notknowing that his wife had died. On 16 Feb 1656, he and Thomas Griffian bought 100 acres of land on theeast side of "the brooke called misticke" in Pequot (now New London),RI from Peter Blatchford for 40 pounds. Roger sold this property on 1Mar 1659 to William Thompson. On 14 Mar 1659 Thompson filed acomplaint against (Thomas Burlingham", charging him with gatheringcrops on this farm. There is no other record of Thomas Burlingham atthis date and may have been Thomas Griffian, named Burlingham bymistake. On 7 Mar 1663, Tollarton Harris testified in court that on 12Jul 1662 he saw Samuel Gorton, George Goff, Roger Burlingame, andEbenezer Moone mowing the grass on the property of W. Field and W.Harris, near a place called Toskeonke on the north side of thePawtuxet River. Similar testimony was given by Andrew Harris. RogerBurlingame, along with Thomas Ralph and John Harrud, claimed that theyhad been granted the property, totaling 4000 acres, by theCooweeseette Indians on 6 Jun 1662. Field and Harris claimed that theyhad been granted the property by the King. The court found in favor ofField and Harris and ordered Burlingame and the others to leave theland, and pay 10 shillings damages. They did not leave, however. TheTown Sergeant put off enforcing the verdict, knowing that thecommunity favored Burlingame and the others. On 1 May 1670, T. Harristestified that on 21 Apr 1670 he and the General Sergeant went to JohnHarrud's home to execute the verdict, and were turned away atgunpoint. Harrud was supported by about 15 men, including John WeeksSr. and Jr., Edmund Calvery, Roger Burlingame and Benjamin Barton.Eventually, Burlingame, Harrud, and Ralph won out, partly due toHarris' death. Roger bought lands from the Cooweeseette Indians on 23 Jun 1662 and 13may 1663. The site of his home is "about one and one-half milesnorthwesterly from Oak Lawn Depot, Cranston, Rhode Island." He built a2 1/2 story "Mansion House" about 1666, which was about 35x60 feet. On25 Sep 1671, Thomas Ralph, Roger Burlingame, and John Harrud wereauthorized by the General Assembly to set the tax rate and levyassessments for the town of Mashantatack. In Oct 1671, they wereordered to levy a tax of 40 shillings on the townspeople, as theirshare of the 200 pounds levied on the Rhode Island Colony. On 6 Oct 1682, Roger Burlingham "of Mashantatack" bought land inWarwick from Abel Potter, and then Roger Burlingham "of Warwick" soldthe land to his son John the same day. On 6 Sep 1684 he deeded hishomestead in Mashantatack, RI totaling about 83 acres to his sonPeter, reserving a lifetime lease. (Jacox and McPherson both put thisdate at 6 Sep 1704, and the land at 50 acres). On 15 Mar 1708 hedeeded an additional 15 acres of land to Peter, to the west of hishomestead in Mashantatack, including some iron ore beds. He waselected to the General Assembly from Warick, RI on 6 May 1690, but wasnot accepted by the Assembly because of the question of his legalresidence, and hence the legality of the election. The questions arosefrom his purchase and sale of land in Warwick on 6 Oct 1682, describedabove, in which he claimed residency in Mashantatack in one deed andin Warwick in the other. The Assembly declared he was fromMashantatack, not Warwick. On 24 Apr 1697, in Providence, Providence, RI he was one of 21 men whowere ordered by a Council of War to take ten men each, to search forthe Indian enemies, and if possible to expel or kill them. If theywere too strong however, he was to warn the inhabitants. (The date ofthis order calls into question the birthdate given by NelsonBurlingame, and makes the 1638 date given by other sources morecredible. A birthdate of 1638, however, would mean that he couldn'thave joined the British Army in 1636, married Jacolyn Huntingdon in1646, and had a son in 1648, or come to the US as a Captain in theBritish Army in 1650.) He was elected constable in Providence on 7 Jun 1697. He was electedto the town council of Providence on 6 Jul 1698. He and his familywere Quakers, and up until about 1711, they held their meetings at hisMansion House in Mashantatack, Providence, RI. His will was dated 28 Nov 1715 in Providence, Providence, RI. Thewitnesses were John Burton, Mary Burton, and Peter Robards. It wasproved 13 Sep 1718, and his son Roger and sons-in-law Thomas Arnoldand Amos Stafford were named as overseers. His wife Mary was named asexecutrix, but since she had died, his son John took over. He left hismovable estate to his wife Mary. At her death, this was to be evenlydivided between his daughters, and his granddaughters FreeloveBurlingame (of his son, Roger), Frances Gorton, and Deborah Hazzard.He left 50 acres of land to his son Roger and his grandson JohnBurlingame, and the rest of his land to his son Thomas. He also leftabout 20 shillings each to his sons, John, Thomas, and Roger.(Most ofthe above information was from Nelson Burlingame) [Note: this camefrom athttp://staff.kutztown.edu/gifford/genealogy/burlingame/bio001.htm andposted by Mike Gifford.] SOURCE: Penfield, Florence Bentz.

Page 318According to this book, Roger's father was George Burlingham who atage 20, sailed from London 2 Jan 1634 in the merchant ship"Bonadventure" for Virginia and the New World. Records do not showwhat became of him, but family tradition says that he married and hada family. All were massacred by the Indians save a son, Roger and adaughter, whose name is unknown. Because of the lack of records, thisson Roger is considered first generation. The descedants of Roger aslisted in the book agree with what has been recorded here, it's justthe father of Roger that is different so I will continue searching toverify the parents.
