It is unclear whether the date was in old/new mode or whether the 1629 date was a transcription error.

Her brother Hugh Walford of Farthingoe, gent., her sister Lucy Burman of Shottery, widow; her sister Ursula Watts, wife of Mr. Brunker Watts of London; her sister, Mrs. Anne Walford; her niece, Elizabeth Walford, daughter of her brother Hugh Walford; her niece Lucy Burman, daughter of her sister, Lucy Burman; her niece Lucy Watts, daughter of her brother-in-law Mr. Brunker Watts; her goddaughter (and niece) Susanna Tibbatts; her cousin (or rather, niece) Lucy Tibbatts; her cousin (or rather, niece) Hannah Tibbatts; her cousin, Hannah Pearkes; her cousin, Susanna Pearkes; her cousin (or ratheer, nephew) Stephen Burman; her cousin (or rather, grandson) Henry Halford, son of Mr. John Halford (spoons and a Bible formerly the property of his grandfather Mr. Henry Tomlins); her godson, Robert Tibbatts, son of Hugh Tibbatts; her sister Jane Hicks of Stratford, widow, who is appointed sole executrix."

Lucy was a widow when their son Hugh was apprenticed in 1713 to Thos Burman of Olde Stratford, dyer (ref fmp, Apprentices of Great Britain, and Ancestry).

From inscriptions in the parish church at Stratford On Avon in R.H.Burman Monograph 1895:
"Lucy, wife of Stephen Burman, daughter of Hugh Walford, of Langley, gent., died 28th September, 1719, aged 59.

In The Burman Chronicle there is a description of some items in the parish church at Stratford On Avon which relate to this Stephen and to his son Hugh:
"The old chained Bible bears a plate on which appears the name (with three others) of Stephen Burman, churchwarden for the parish, with the date 1695. On the south wall of the nave is an imposing tablet to the memory of Hugh Burman, of Shottery, and his family. " The coat of arms which formerly surmounted the memorial have been replaced under the memorial.

'Shakespeare's Church' by J Harvey Bloom, 1902 describes the Bible:
"A chained Bible is preserved in a case at the west end of the church; on the cover is a brass plate which is thus inscribed
William Wright and John Noble Churchwardens for ye Borough

Anno Dom. 1695.

It is very likely that William had been married to an Elizabeth, surname unknown, because there is a similar grant of land from Elizabeth Burman, widow, to the same Stephen Burman, nephew, in 1743, as follows:

There are two entries for William Burman for Hearth Tax Returns in 1662 at Shotterie, hundred of Barlichway, one listed Sr and one listed Jr, which probably refer to this William Burman as William junior.

The following entry in the Guide to Stratford and Warwick References in the Art, Manuscript and Scrapbook Collections (Folger Collection) is presumed to refer to this William as William Burman the elder.
"146: Joseph Woolmer, Stratford-upon-Avon, ironmonger (1), Thomas Woolmer, Stratford-upon-Avon, gent (2), William Burman the elder, Shottery, yeoman & John Burman, Southam [Shottery in another version], yeoman, son & heir apparent of William (3), William Burman the younger, Shottery, yeoman (4), Thomas Perkes, Bearley, gent (trustee) (5), 7 March 1710/11.
