John Burwell came with his wife, my ancestor, ALICE HEATH, to America in 1637 with the Eaton-Davenport-Prudden party and was an original planter of Wepawaug (Milford). He was the owner of "Burwell Farms" which stayed in the family for many years. ALICE HEATH, whom he married on June 24, 1635, was his third wife. After his death, she married my ancestor, JOSEPH PECK.

Known children of John & Alice (Heath) Burwell:
Samuel Burwell (died in infancy), Zachariah Burwell, Samuel Burwell, Ephraim Burwell, Nathan Burwell, Elizabeth Burwell.

At right is pictured a stone on the Memorial Bridge over the Wepawaug River in Milford honoring John & Alice Burwell as original settlers.
Please note... Nareen and i are aware of the fact there are 2 memorials for John. Nareen was kind enough to transfer the original to me and created a cenotaph record for herself.
