ROBERT BURNAP, born about 1595, lived at Hoddesden End, Great Amwell parish, next to Stanstead Abbots, and emigrated to New England in 1638. His baptism does not appear at Great Amwell nor was he married there, but if at Stanstead Abbots then it will not be found as the records before 1678 are lost. In 1634, he buys, "one messuage one orchard and one garden," etc., in Amwell from John Morley, Martha Morley (wife of John) and Thomas Bannister. Selling to William Allen and Joan his wife, the small home which he had bought in 1634, they and their four surviving children, Robert, ae. 11, Isaac, ae. 8, Anne, ae. 6 and Edward, ae. 2, leave for America.

Robert had married, about 1625, a wife whose name was Ann, but whose surname has not been found and Pope in his "Pioneers" says that he had a wife Margaret Davis, but there is no other evidence of it. Pope is also authority for the statement that he settled in Roxbury, which is borne out by the records of that town and we know that he was in Reading, about 1646-52. He was a proprietor in Roxbury in 1640 and he drew ten acres in 1652, as appears in the earliest list of the inhabitants now existing.

Robert Bridges of Linne, for competent consideration, to Robert Burnupp of Reading, husbandman, a farme of 800 acres in Linne and Redding, bounded on north and north-west by the Ipswich River; also 25 acres on each side of Beaver Dam in Reddinge (grant of Linne to Rt. Hon. Lord Brooke, deceased), 24 February, 1654; acknowledged, 20 August, 1656. The same land was assigned to Captain George Corwin of Salem, merchant, consideration 200, 24 February, 1662, the 25 acres being reserved by Robert Burnup. Witnesses:--Edward Norrice, Thomas Burnap. Recorded 6 Dec., 1677. This land was deeded by Robert Burnap, Sr., of Redding to Corwin, 10 December, 1677 and acknowledged the same date and in the inventory of George Corwin, Captain, 30 January, 1684, appears "the farme nere Redding bought of Burnap," a grant of 800 acres appraised by Thomas Flint and Joseph Pope, 250. (Essex Probate Records, vol. iii, p. 198.)

Robert Burnap of Redding and Ann my wife, consideration 30, by William Eaton of same, quit-claim 100 acres of upland in Lynn near Wigwam meddow, 18 January, 1657; acknowledged 13 November 1662. (Essex Deeds, vol. ii, p. 68.)

Robert Burnep, Sr., of Redding, consideration 12, to Thomas Clearke, quit-claim on 9 acres of meddow in Linne, bounded north, east and west by Major Holioak, south by Robert Burnup, sr., 24 August, 1663; acknowledged by Robert and Ann Burnap, 12 Feb., 1679. (Essex Deeds, vol. v, p. 63.)

Robert Burnepp of Reading, husbandman, consideration 115, to Robert Bridges of Linn, gentleman, 800 acres in Linn and Reading at Beaver Damme, late in possession of Robert Bridges and since sold to Robert Burnepp, 70 acres in Reading and the house wherein Robert Burnapp now liveth (unless certain payments are made in which case this deed is void), 17 Sept., 1655. Witnesses, Thomas Marchall, John Cotton; acknowledged, 22 May, 1656. (Mddx. Land Records, vol. 1, p. 145.)

Samuel Hutchinson of Redding, consideration 12, to Robert Barnap, senr., land at east end of my lott, 20 Feb. 1669-70. Hannah Hutchinson also signs. Witnesses, Ralph Dix, William Cowdrey; acknowledged 13 May, 1670. (Ibid:--vol. v., p. 8.)

Robert Burnap filled the office of Selectman in Reading from 1654-6, 1658-60, 1662-9, 1670-1. He died 27 September, 1688, a very old man, as will be noted. His will, dated 15 November, 1688, was proved 1 October, 1689, and provides "to son Thomas homestead and town priveleges with house and land sd. Thomas lives upon, he to pay my cousin Thomas Barnap 6 yearly for life, to whom also a room in ye chamber and a bed for four years." To daughter Ann Jones, 5; to daughter Sarah Brown, "ye cupboard in ye parlour"; to son Robert, land that his house is on, etc.; to cousin Thomas Barnap, 40 acres of upland, etc.; to grand-children, Joseph and Thomas Barnap; Sarah Southericke and Isaac Southericke, (Southwick); sons Thomas and Robert, executors; overseers, Capt. John Brown, Capt. Jeremiah Swain. Witnesses:--John Brown, Hannah Parker, Benjamin Fitch. Inventory, 7 September, 1689, 508:16:0. (Mddx. Probate Records, vol. vii, p. 36.)

Robert Burnap, the immigrant ancestor, was the youngest son of Thomas Burnap of Stanstead Abbots, county Herts, England. Robert Burnap lived in Hoddesden End, Great Amwell, county Herts, where he purchased land in 1634 . He sold this property in 1638 and followed his wife's oldest sister and her husband, Isaac and Elizabeth (Miller) Heath, to Roxbury, Massachusetts.

As his land bordered that of Governor Thomas Dudley, the two families were probably acquainted. He was selectman in Reading and took part in many transactions.

another Thomas son of John and Ellen prob joined this family at a later date "when he became of age; [John is prob bro of Robert]
