Notes for Roger BURLINGAME
Came to Boston with British Army May 10, 1650. Resigned commission and went to Connecticut. Planned to call over wife and child, but Jacoly had died in the meantime. [689]

He moved to New London (Pequot) before 1656, when he and his brother-in-law Thomas Griffin purchased land. He eventually built a home "about one and one-half miles northwesterly from Oak Lawn Depot, Cranston, Rhode Island." In the early 1660s, he was involved in a dispute over a tract of 4000 acres. Roger, along with Thomas Ralph and John Harrud, claimed they had purchased the land from Indians in June 1662. Several others, including Andrew Harris, claimed they had been granted the land by the king. The Court sided with Harris, but Roger and ther others refused to vacate. They eventually won out, more or less by default with Harris died.

In 1671, he served as one of those charged with levying tax for the town of Mashantatack. He was elected to the General Assembly from Warick on 6 May 1690, but was not accepted by the Assembly because of the question of his legal residence. In 1682, he had purchased land and sold it to his son the same day, claiming residency in Mashantatack in one deed and in Warwick in the other. The Assembly declared he was from Mashantatack, not Warwick.

In 1697, he was one of 21 men ordered to take men to hunt for Indians. Roger would have been 77 at the time, so this is the source of some debate over his birthdate. (Above three paragraphs:, which cites Austin's Gen. & Dict. of R. I, Gen. & Biog. R. I. vol II, Savage Gen. dict. and Pioneers of Mass, by Pope.)

Savage's: ROGER, Stonington 1654, Warwick 1660, by w. Mary had John, b. 1 Aug. 1664; and Thomas, 6 Feb. 1667, but nothing more is found of him, or w. or ch. exc. that his d. Mary m. 19 Dec. 1689, Amos Stafford, liv. 72 yrs. with him, had thirteen ch. as is said, was b. six days aft. him, and d. at equal distance, aged 97, some part of wh. may be true, but the newspaper that ment. his (Stafford's) d. at 97, makes the wid. 92. Five yrs. discrepency in a tradit. is not of high import. See Geneal. Reg. VIII. 368.
Notes for Mary LIPPITT
Married to her first husband for just six weeks before he died.
