2.   William BURMAN
Bap 12 Jul 1618 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire, Willm., son of Stevon Burman (ref Ancestry England Select Births and Christenings).
Identified in the Publications of the Dugdale Society Vol V on archive.org as the possible owner of the initials W.B. on the Shakespeare bed, if that is what they were.
William married Eleanor, surname unknown (ref her Will, see later).

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 senior.

William died before Feb 1686/7, burial not found. Eleanor died approximately 1686.

Refer the National Archives, ER 2/480, documents held at Shakespeare Centre Library and Archive, dated 8 Feb 1686/7:
"Contents: Will of Eleanor Burman of Shottery, widow, making bequests in money, bedding etc. to William Burman, the younger, her son and Lydia Burman and Hanna Charles, her daughters, the residue of her estate (including a debt due from William Burman, the elder [? possible error], her son) to go to Steven Burman, her son, sole executor. Witnesses: Samuel Tyler, Susan Tyler, etc. Probate copy."

The listed children are connected together by Eleanor's Will with the exception of Job, who has brothers Stephen and William in his own Will in 1708.

Justification for giving this marriage and children to this William rather than the William of the same age, the tenth child of Richard, is that this William would have been the eldest son and heir of Stephen and would be more likely to have money and therefore a wife leaving a Will.
 
    Children:  
  1. Stephen BURMAN bap 1651 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire  
  2. Lidea BURMAN bap 1653 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire  
  3. William BURMAN bap 1656 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire  
  4. Hannah BURMAN bap 1661 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire  
  5. Job BURMAN birth date not known
 
3.   Steven BURMAN (Stephen)
Bap 30 Jan 1619/20 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire, Steven, son of Steven Burman (ref Ancestry England Select Births and Christenings with both 19 and 20).
"Of London", died 1666 (ref The Burman Chronicle 1940).

The run of baptisms of children of Stephen Burman at St Lawrence Jewry are consistent with Stephen having two marriages, the first to Martha Bishop and the second to Susan Acrod.

Marriage (1) 19 Feb 1649/50 at St Anne and St Agnes, Aldersgate, London of Stephen Burman to Martha BISHOP (ref Ancestry London Baptisms Marriages and Burials).

Burial of Martha: Martha the wife of Mr Stephen [Burman] was buried in the middle isle 18 Jan 1658[/59] (ref Ancestry, page 149 of City of London St Lawrence Jewry 1538-1715).

Marriage (2) Dec 1660 of Stephen Burman to Susan[na] ACROD (ref Ancestry, Calendar of marriage licenses issued by the Faculty Office, 1632-1714 - England Extracted Parish and Court Records). Susanna was dau of John Acrod, and his Will dated 1682 mentions his granddaughters Susanna and Elizabeth Burman.

The Will of Stephen Burman 1666/67 (available in Ancestry) matches the date given in the Burman Chronicle and lists his wife Susannah, and children Stephen, Martha, John and Elizabeth. Other documents in the National Archives are held at the Corporation of London Records Office under the number CLA/002/04/068, 1671:
"Stephen Burman. Contents: Susanna, widow of; Stephen, orphan of; Martha, orphan of; Susanna, orphan of; Elizabeth, orphan of."
Probate was granted on 13 Mar 1666/67.

[Several last lines with names and money amounts written.]
There follows the Probate in Latin. (Obtained from Ancestry)


The implication in the Will of her daughter Elizabeth is that Susanna subsquently married a Mr Kirke and had a son; both of these are mentioned in Elizabeth's Will in 1702, though no records have been found to confirm this.

There is also an unidentified burial of Stephen Burman 1 Aug 1664 at St Dunstan in the West, London. This burial record in Ancestry has an unidentifiable occupation in Ancestry (probably Journeyman) and appears to say 'was buried out of Whites Alley' which contained 6 houses for 6 poor men and their wives, belonging to the Company of leathersellers (see
www.british-history.ac.uk).

Refer the National Archives Clopton Charters ER 3/300, 24 April 1623:
"Contents: Deed of sale by William Burman of Borton-on-the-Hill, co. Glouc., yeoman, Richard Burman of Shotterye in the parish of Stratford-upon-Avon, yeoman and John Burman, son and heir apparent of the said Richard to William White of Wormyngton, co.

Dated 24 April 21 James I. Witnesses: Robert Cureton, John Gilbye, Thomas Lane, William Bartlet."

Refer the National Archives Clopton Charters ER 3/301, 30 April 1623:
"Contents: Covenants between William Burman, Richard Burman and John Burman, as above, no. 300, on the first part, Robert Humfryes of Borton on the Hill, co. Glouc., yeoman, on the second part, and William White on the third part, that the said Robert Humfryes shall sue out a common recovery against William White of the messuages, lands, etc. as above, no. 300, under the names of two messuages, three gardens, 50 acres of land, 10 acres of meadow, 10 acres of pasture, 2 acres of furze and heath and common of pasture, in Stratford-upon-Avon and Shotterye; such recovery as regards the messuage and all else in Stratford to be to the use of William Burman for his life with remainder to John Burman, and as regards the messuage and all else in Shotterye to be to the use of Richard Burman his heirs and assigns."

Refer the National Archives BRU15/11/5 (1630): [His father Richard died in November 1630]
"Contents: John Burman, eldest son of Richard Burman of Shottery, yeoman, for the due discharge of debts incurred by him Richard makes over to John Burman his property by deed of gift, 1630. In the list of debts is 'one obligacion of teenne pounds for the paiment of five pounds and consideracion unto Thomas Naish of Stratford aforesaid, gentleman.' "

Marriage reg 8 Sep 1630 at Stratford On Avon of Johes Burman to Elinora MILLER (ref Warwickshire records). However it appears from John's Will that a more accurate spelling of her name is MILWARD.

In 1632/33 John Burman was listed as one of the Churchwardens of Holy Trinity, Stratford On Avon for the year, and it was probably this one. He had money and property and lived in Shottery or Stratford on Avon all his life. A sample of his duties follows.
Refer the National Archives ER1/1/95, 17 Dec 1633:
"Contents: Presentments of the sidemen of the town and parish of Stratford 'unto Mr. Thomas Willsons corte', 17 December 1633, viz. Richard George for pulling down a seat, Rowland Ardway for taking a great stone from the church yard, Augustine Boyce for 'tiplinge and sufferinge the bell ringers to tiple and drinke at the communion table in the chancell and for stabeinge and fowlinge the same', and 'Mr. Arthur Cawdrie for beeing absente from devine servis and sermons upon Saboth dayes verie often'. Signed by John Eston, William Wilson (with a mark) and John Burman. Folio 122."

Refer details of his uncle William Burman's probate from the Prerogative Court of Canterbury 1635 (ref Ancesty):
"BURMAN, WILLIAM, of Bourton on the Hill, co. Glouc.
Will [11 Sadler] pr. Feb. 4, 1634-5 by JOHN HAYNES, and nephew JOHN BURMAN (son of RICHARD, decd.)."

It is likely that this is the John Burman referred to in the National Archives ER 2/447 29 July 1636, 3 October 1637, held at Shakespeare Centre Library and Archive:
"Contents: Court roll of the manor of Stratford and Shottery, Sir Charles Smith, Knt., being Lord. The names of the jurors in 1636 are John Burman, John Rogers, Thomas Watson, Clement Burman, Edward Cottrell, Stephen Sytch, John Hathaway, William Greene; of whom John Burman, John Rogers and Edward Cottrell are replaced in 1637 by Thomas Burman, Richard Ingram and Edward Godwin."

Burial of 'John Burman de Shottery' on 14 Sep 1645 at Stratford On Avon (ref Ancestry, Warwickshire extracted parish records).

The children below may be those of this particular Thomas especially as we know that he was alive in 1645.

There is a burial reference to a wife of a Thomas:

Justification for giving this marriage and children to the other William rather than this William of the same age, is that the other William would have been the eldest son and heir of Stephen and would be more likely to have money and therefore a wife leaving a Will.
 
    Issue of Johannes/John Burman and Elizabeth  
1.   Rose BURMAN
Bap 15 Oct 1589 at Stratford On Avon, Warwickshire, Rose, dau of John Burman (ref Ancestry England Select Births and Christenings).
It is totally speculative to place Rose here, and certainly John would have been very young to have a child at this time. She is placed here in the absence of other alternatives.

Burial 16 Jul 1597 of "Rose fillia John Burman" at Stratford on Avon (ref Ancestry Warwickshire Parish Register of Burials).
 
2.   John BURMAN
For reasons given earlier, the liklihood is that the forbears of this family is not correct but no further evidence has been found.
Bap 26 Sep 1595 at Tanworth, Warwick (ref IGI).
There is a baptism 26 Sep 1595 at Tanworth, Warwickshire of Johes Burman, son of Johis Burman (ref Ancestry England Select Births and Christenings).

Married 19 Jan 1628 at Tanworth, Warwick to Anna COURTE (ref IGI and Ancestry England Select Marriages). Anne was of Kemp's Green, Tanworth. Their grandson, John Burman, settled at Kemp's Green, having inherited the property under the will of his kinsman, John Court, probably the nephew of Anna. See generation 7 for the text of the will.
