Family of William VESEY and Polly BURRIDGE
William VESEY b. 1766 May 25944 at (bapt) Braintree, MA944. d. 1817~4946 at Braintree, VT4946.
Polly BURRIDGE b. 1780 May 282852 at Braintree, MA2852. d. bef May 1812.
old2253, p 584, in the sketch of William J Vesey, has that his great-grandfather William Vesey and that William's brother Benjamin migrated from Massachusetts to Braintree, Vermont, in 1785, and, the following year (an error?), William married Polly, daughter of John and Polly (Spear) Burridge. William and Polly had five children. However, Bates2852, p 852, lists the children of John Burridge and Mary his wife "who was Mary Spear daughter of Samuel and Mary Spear born 27th July 1760," and the birth dates of the children. The first child listed is Polly Burridge, born May 28, 1780. That Polly, however, is too young to have married William Vesey in 1786. The oldest child, Polly, of William and Polly Vesey was born in 1799. A marriage date of about 1798 is assumed from that.
Griswold2253, in the sketch mentioned, has some inconsistencies - the marriage date mentioned; this William Vesey born in Braintree in 1768 though he was baptised in 1766. The majority of the information appears to be correct, and William's wife is given herein as Polly Burridge, with parentage and birth date as listed in Braintree (Mass.) records2852.
Child 3. Sally
Hillman800 states Sally prob died before 1817, date of her father's will, as she is not mentioned therein.
