In THE SECOND BOAT Vol.12, No.6, p.18 (January 1992), we find the following:
"Thomas BURGESS and Dorothy WAYNES were married at Tanfield, Yorkshire, England, in 1628, according to a record from 'Paver's Marriage Licenses' as listed in the YORKSHIRE ARCHAEOLOGICAL JOURNAL, Vol.20, p.74, (1909). This reference is cited by Benjamin F. Wilbour as part of a note of his published in 'English Origins of New England Families', NEH&GR (Second Series, Vol.1). In his note, Wilbour says this marriage record 'may pertain' to the Thomas BURGESS who had land granted to him 3 April 1637 at Duxbury, died 23 Feb. 1684/5 at Sandwich, MA and whose wife, Dorothy, died there 27 FEb 1686/7. Wilbour also cites as a source Winifred Lovering Holman's 'Burgess Lineage, 1957-1958', a typescript in the NEH&GR Library."
See also: THE SECOND BOAT, Vol.11, No.6, p.10 (Jan 1991) which gives Dorothy PHIPPEN as the wife of this Thomas BURGESS.
