Massachusetts, USA
Death: Sep. 6, 1761
Essex County

Ebenezer was born in his grandfather's house on Boston Street, corner of Federal Street in Lynn, Mass. and a younger brother of "the beloved Speaker," was quite eminent in his day, and distinguished as Honorable Ebenezer Burrill. When he married Martha they settled at Swampscott on an estate given him by his father.

He was a remarkable man for sound judgement, benevolence, and activity in all useful enterprises, was six times chosen Representative, and was a
Counsellor in 1731 and 1746.

In 1732 he was entrusted with the settlement of important business with the Indians at Casco Bay. He possessed a large estate in lands, and was able to provide well for his numerous family. The inventory of his estate indicates that he lived in very respectable style, and among his personal property may be found enumerated one negro slave named Caesar.
