Genealogy, by its researches in heredity and transmission, goes further, and asserts that their traits and predilections, their acquisitions, mental and physical, their modes of thought and even of expression are trans- mitted also, and teaches that generations whom we thought long since dead still live in us, exist in our existence, act in our actions, and think in our thoughts.
Concerning the interesting question as to the relationship existing be- tween the ancestors of the three Puritan branches, I have nothing except conjectures and suggestions to offer; not a scrap of evidence, nor a tra- dition even,* tending to prove or disprove the fact of such relation- ship, is known to be in existence. The next year after his removal, in 1645, he represented Fairfield at the General Court, again in 1646, and for several succeeding sessions prior to the union of the Hartford and New Haven colonies. But little is found of him in the town records of Fairfield now extant. 147, a record of a land grant to Henry Jackson, signed by Jehu Bur, Commissioner, and dated March 18, 167 1. 202, same vol., this entry, " Jehu Bur having held quiet possession of his house lot for fifteen years, it is granted him." Also, same date, John Bur received a deed from his father, Jehu Bur. The head-stones of the earlier settlers were of exceedingly rude construction, apparently quarried by the relatives of the deceased before there was any regular stone-cutter in the place, and bore only the initials of the dead and the date of decease. His first important venture, so far as can be ascertained, was in the purchase of Wean- tenock, an extensive tract of land " of which the boundaries do not appear to have been very exactly defined, lying on both sides of the Housatonic River, and comprising the present township of New Milford, together with a part of the adjoining towns south and west." His part- ners in the enterprise were Capt. Fletcher), Steele, Munson, Fowler, Holly, Pratt, and Prentice, who were desired " to take into their con- sideration the land belonging to the severall plantations and consider and set such an appraisement upon the land as near as may be just and equal, and present it to this Court." At the General Court, May 8, 1673, he again took his seat as Deputy * Figures in brackets refer to the number in genealogical record.

He seems to have taken a high rank at Fairfield from the first. In 1660 he was appointed grand juror with twelve other important men of the colony, and as such, ordered by the General Court " to inquire into, and consider of ye mis- demeanors and breaches of ye orders of this Colony, and present all offences to ye next Particular Court."

This was his last public service, as later mention of the name in the records refers undoubtedly to his son Jehu. 12, 1673, which mentions John Burr as receiving twenty-seven acres of land by will of his father.* No vestiges of his grave remain. 472, the late Sylvester Judd, Esq., of Northampton, Mass., a careful and painstaking genealogist, places his death in 1650, but a careful search of the Fairfield records (as well as the opinions of other genealogists) places his death at a much later period.

Now, if these things are so — and their truth is established beyond cavil — are not the votaries of the science justified in propounding a new axiom, that he is the real millionaire who inherits a virtuous ancestry; since he must receive with it a good name, good abilities, and sound judgment, and these in turn will confer on him a clear title to wealth, honest fame, and all the acquisitions and achievements of the human mind.
Monmouth, born in 1S11, married 1839 Anne Margaretta only dau. This branch was exceeded by none of the old colonial families of New England, either in the influence which it exerted on public affairs, or in the quality and mettle of the men which it produced. Symonde Burre, the 2d son of Symonde Burre, left issue: I. He left four sons: Jehu, probably born in England, John, Daniel, and Nathaniel, all of whom became the fathers of families, and lived and died in Fairfield. The militia were ordered enrolled, arms to be collected, and a Grand Commission appointed " for the establishing, and Commis- sionating of Military officers, the pressing of men, horses, ships, barks and other vessels, arms, ammunition, carriages, provisions, and anything else they judge needfull for their defense," and all to be forwarded as soon as collected, to the coast, any one point of which seemed as likely as another to be selected for the threatened demonstration.
There are some points in connection with the history and development of the Fairfield branch which will prove of the greatest interest, not only to the genealogist, but to the student of heredity as well. 15S5 (being the last entry of the name in the "Book of Baptisms"); living in 1626. William Burre, the 4th son of Symonde Burre, left issue: I. We have no record of his marriage, nor of the maiden name of his wife. Governor Winthrop at once called a special session of the legislature, which with equal celerity passed an act putting the colony on an immedi- ate war footing. Corroborating this is the fact of their nearly simultaneous ap- pearance in America — although not coming in company, — as if one had been sent first to spy out the land, and then that his favorable report had induced the others in turn to seek their fortunes in the new land of promise. Dlonis, Backchurch., London, 28 April, 1618, James Milbourne, of Dunmow, in the Co. Of the second family, William Burre was married at Great Canfield, 1559, and buried there 1599. He was probably buried in the old Fairfield burial-ground, or in that at Stratfield, where many of his more immediate descendants repose. In 1670 the General Court of Connecticut granted them liberty to purchase Wean- tenock and lands adjacent, of the Indians, " to make a plantation if it be capable of such a thing," and appointed Mr. The Governor, Deputy Governor, and 12 Assistants, chosen by the freemen at large, made up the Court of Assistants, answering to our Senate. There was also a third body called the Governor and Council, con- sisting of the Court of Assistants, which could be called by the Governor or Deputy Gov- ernor at any time, and had limited legislative powers. This audacious act threw the fiery little colony into a perfect fever of excitement; arms were brought out, swords polished, and bullets molded, and the mustering of the train-bands filled every valley, and was echoed from every hillside. Burr was educated at Eton and Christ Church Oxford, is a Magistrate for Co. The author is of opinion, however, — from the similarity of personal appearance, physical structure, and mental traits apparent in their descendants, and the fact that the same traditions obtain and the same Christian names are of frequent recurrence among them, — that these persons were from the same or allied families. His name appears quite often in the records of the colony; in some cases hard to be distin- guished from his son Jehue. These records, for the first fifteen or twenty years after its settlement, are very fragmentary, many having been burned by the British in the war of the Revolution. As the founder of an important and honored family, it would be in- teresting to know the circumstances of his death, and his place of burial. We know that he died some time in 1672, from an entry on p. But few of these remain, and they are so defaced by the lapse of time and the action of the weather as to be almost illegible.

By this Court he was voted for his public services a grant of 200 acres of land, " provided it be not prejudicial to former grants to particular towns or persons." Early in the succeeding summer (1673) occurred the seizure of New York and adjacent territory by the "Dutch," and their threatened demonstration on Connecticut.
