Written in large measure based on information compiled in 1903 in History of The Burdick Family: Descendants of Robert and Ruth Hubbard Burdick by William M. B. Harcourt, an historian and genealogist from Raspeburg, Baltimore County, Maryland.  His research revealed there were approximately 150 Burdicks who served in the Revolutionary War and approximately 1500 who served in the Civil War.

 

Generation

 

10 

 

9   Robert Burdick

 

A. Biographical notes:

 

Born in England.  Died 1692.  First Burdick in America.  In 1661 Robert was one of the original purchasers and pioneers of Westerly, Rhode Island.  For several terms he was a Deputy in the Rhode Island Colonial General Assembly and was a member and Deacon of the Seventh-Day Baptist Church.

 

As a result of a boundary dispute between Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Robert Burdick, his brother-in-law, Reverend Joseph Clarke, and Tobias Saunders were arrested in November 1661 and taken to Boston.  At his trial Robert steadfastly upheld Rhode Island's rights under its charter to Misquamicut (now Westerly); and he and Saunders were imprisoned for more than a year, rather than pay a fine of 40 pounds, which they felt would concede Massachusetts authority over them and the region in which they had settled.  The men were subsequently released in exchange for some Massachusetts officials, who had been seized by Rhode Island in retaliation for the action against Burdick and Saunders.

 

B. Wife: Ruth Hubbard

 

1. Biographical Notes:

 

Born 1640 at Springfield, Massachusetts; first white child born in that settlement.  She married Robert Burdick at age 15 on 2 November 1655 at Newport, Rhode Island.

 

2. Father: Samuel Hubbard

 

Born in 1610 at Mendelsham, Suffolk County, England, son of James and Naomi (Locke) Hubbard.  Samuel's grandfather, Thomas Hubbard/Higbed, was burned at the stake on 26 May 1555 (during the reign of Queen Mary (“Bloody Mary”) in Essex County, England for refusing to recant his Protestant beliefs.  This event is documented in Fox’s Book of Martyrs (Book III, Chapter 14) under the name Thomas Higbed.

 

Samuel arrived at Salem, Massachusetts in 1633.  He was a member of the party that marched west from Watertown, Massachusetts through the wilderness in the terrible winter of 1635 (arriving at Windsor, CT on 4 Jan 1636) to open up the Connecticut River valley and establish what would eventually become the state of Connecticut.

 

Samuel and his family sought refuge in Rhode Island in 1648 from religious intolerance in Connecticut.  He was one of the founders, on 13 December 1671 at Newport, Rhode island, of the Seventh-Day Baptist Church.

 

3. Mother: Tasy Cooper

 

Married Samuel Hubbard on 4 January 1636 at Windsor, Connecticut.  Like her husband, Samuel, Tasy had been a member of the party that marched west from Watertown, Massachusetts in the winter of 1635.

 

All Burdicks whose ancestry can be traced to early Rhode Island are descended from Robert and Ruth (Hubbard) Burdick.  Little is know of the next two Burdick generations, but it is assumed Nathan Burdick, generation 8, below, is a direct descendant of Robert and Ruth (Hubbard) Burdick.  In support of that theory, notice that the rather unusual first name of Ruth's mother, Tasy, was given to one of Nathan Burdick's daughters and is also used in subsequent generations.

A. Biographical Notes:

 

Born 28 December 1820 at Point Peninsula, Lyme Township, Jefferson County, New York on the shore of Lake Ontario.  Died 20 February 1908, age 87 years, 1 month, 23 days.  As a young man Nelson was a farmer, but the soil was too poor to grow other than hay and grain.  As a result he began to trade agricultural commodities, at first hay and grain and then much more.  His personality and sharp mind made Nelson uniquely adept at that profession and amazingly successful in the Toronto and Kingston, Ontario, Canada and Northern New York State agricultural markets.  People used to say they never saw a wealthier man than Nelson Burdick.  It wouldn't be uncommon for him to walk into a farmer's house to buy grain with two or three thousand dollars in his pockets.  Nelson often told the story of leaving his farm riding a lame horse with just twenty dollars in his pocket, and returning home in two weeks driving a good team of work horses hitched to a lumber wagon filled with apples and potatoes.

 

Nelson was the first man to operate a hay press in Northern New York, and probably the first in New York State.  At that time wooden hoops were used to bind the bales.  He was also Supervisor of the Town of Lyme for a period and was a respected member of the community.

 

During a typhoid epidemic in 1865, three of Nelson's daughters died in one week: Eliza, Aletta, and Kitty May.  In 1867 he moved his family to Watertown, Jefferson County, New York and was considered one of the wealthiest citizens of that city.  In 1870 Nelson and M. Horton began to manufacture carriages and wagons in Watertown.  In 1882-83 Nelson Burdick was elected Mayor of Watertown and served three terms in that capacity.
