Notes for Henry Burt
See Burnham346 for further historical notes, as well as the other general sources, to which can be added R.S. Hitchcock.340

He was taxed on land in Harberton in 1624, these were the bequest of his father. He and his family emigrated to New England probably in the winter of 1638/9 or the following spring or summer.

He is first seen in New England at Roxbury, MA, where his house burned down and the General Court made a grant of 8 pounds to the town in November 1639 to cover the costs. He moved to Sprinfield in 1640, where he was clerk of the writs, though he did not record the births of his other children there.

Check the order of the later children. The order given here is that of Chapin157, but he does not have all of the birth dates as given by Burnham146.
