    • Elizabeth Burgess's maiden name is also seen as Burge.

      Some published sources give Elizabeth's parents as Benjamin Burgess and Priscilla Gatchell. However, the Mayflower Society silver books (MF5G, Vol. 18, pt. 1:171, and pt. 3:90, 106) give it as Ebenezer Burgess and Mercy Lombard. The latter gives Elizabeth a descent from Mayflower passenger Richard Warren, while the former would give her one from William Brewster.
