Hi again,

I was just wondering why you are unsure of Samuel as a member of the Burgess family?

I didn't say that. What I am unsure about is whether he  died when he did given the other evidence. I also wonder if Jean Spalding was John's second wife ,etc.  As you are aware, there are more doubts than definite facts about this family.

All my doubts, research, etc. are summarised in the first few pages of this thread.

James died in 1856, aged 77 which gives a birth date of 1779 rather than 1782.  I have his death cert, will and photos of the family grave in Wales. It's a double one which includes sister Mary.
