Birth: 1620, USA
Death: Sep. 1, 1718
Providence County
Rhode Island, USA

He was the only member if his family to escape an Indian attack(no record of where this happened of by what Indian Tribe. His parents and the rest of his siblings were massacred. Roger first appeared in Stonington,Connectiecut in 1654 where he appeared as a witness in court records,it was unknown from where he came from prior to his appearance. On Feb 15,1656 he and a Thomas Griffith bought 100 acres of land in Pequiot, Connecticut,which he sold March 1,1959. He next appeared in Rhode Island,where he and Thomas Ralph and John Harrud claimed to have a grant of 4,ooo acres from Cooweesee Indians on June 6,1660 in place called Mashantastack. Sept 25,1671, the General Assembly ordered that Roger Burlingame, Thomas Ralph and John Harrud,or any two of them shall have levy assessment on people of Mashantatack. Sept 1,1687 he was taxed 6 shillings. In 1690,he was elected Deputy to General Assembly in Warwick, Rhode Island. Jun 7,1697, he was chosen Constable and July 6,1698 was elected to Town Council.

He deeded house and 50 acres to his son Peter Burlingame, Sept 6,1704. Roger died Nov. 18, 1718 at 98 un Providence, Rhode Island & his will was proved November 28,1718 Ececutor. His wife Mary Lippett(1620-1718) father was John Lippett, she apparently died the same year, but before he did.

My other source says that Roger Burlingame, Sr. died September 1,1718, not November 28,1718. Because Mary died, the oldest son, John Burlingame took administration with an over-seer, son-in-law, Thomas Arnold and Amos Stafford and Roger Burlingame, Jr.

This information came out of the Burlingame record that I have rec'd by another family member. My grand-mother was a Burlingame from California, MO. She died in 1936.
