John Burr and Sarah Fitch

(Colonel) John BURR.
Said to have been born before 1630 (16331) in England; son of Jehu BURR and (miss) CABLE. He married Sarah FITCH about 1672, probably at Fairfield, Connecticut. In the records he is called both a Major and also a Colonel.

On 17 February 1670-1 his brother Jehu had recorded a deed to a home lot adjoining his own home lot, of which he "hath had quiet possession above this sixteen years." On 12 January 1673-4 is entered a description of the same lot, signed by John, from whom Jehu had purchased it, apparently a ratification of the purchase. The next entry, on the same date, is Jehu's own home lot which he "hath by his father's will Jehu dec'd.", bounded by the lot bought from his brother John. (S1).

John died in October 1694 at Fairfield, Fairfield County, Connecticut.
