Burgess Genealogy, by K. W. Hiam, 1997, pub by the NEHGS pg 1:
"The Immigrant: Thomas Burgess of Sandwich, Massachusetts" Thomas, the immigrant, is sometimes thought to have come to Salem, Massachusetts, with his wife, Dorothy, andhis young family in 1630. A stone set by the grave of John Burgess, Jr. (John, Joseph, John, Thomas) in Center Cem., Rochester, reads 'Descendant of Thomas Burgess the pilgrim who landed at Salem 1630' ... A land record dated July3, 1637, shows that he [Thomas] forfeited acreage assigned him at Duxbury, in order to settle the same year at Sandwich. There, he and his family lived at the western end of town, which later became part of the township of Bourne, in the area now called Sagamore. He became a large landowner in Sandwich and serve the town in many capacities.
Thomas, his wife Dorothy, their only daughter, Elizabeth (Burgess) Perry, and her husband, Ezra Perry, are buried quite close together near the brow of the hill in the Old Burying Ground on Grove Street in Sandwich.

THE BURGESS HISTORY TREE by Paul F. Burgess. Genealogy Publishing Service, Franklin, North Carolina. 1993:
Thomas Burgess arrived with his wife in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1630, at the age of 27, and remained for a time in the adjoining community of Lynn, about ten milesnortheast of Boston. (They are believed to have arrived on the ship 'The Blessing of the Bay'.) A section of land was assigned to him, 3 July 1637, in Duxbury, 30 miles south of Boston; but in the same year there appeared on the map, 64 miles south of Boston, the township of Sandwich, in the colony of Plymouth, to which he moved the following year, making his permanent abode in that section of the township which has come to be known as Sagamore... He was one of the original eleven male members of the first Congregational Church in Sandwich and was known among his contemporaries as "Goodman Burgess."

Burial Notes: His grave was honored by amonumental slab imported from England. "This was the only monument set up for any Pilgrim of the first generation." (Otis) The stones of Thomas and Dorothy were restored by descendants in 1917 and in 1994 were called "marvelously legible." The cemetery is situated almost directly across the mill pond fromthe Thornton W. Burgess (Jr.) Museum.
General Notes: DOUBTFUL THOMASES THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE, DOUBTFUL THOMASES, WAS PREPARED BY COUSIN JOE BURGESS, OREGON, USA., AND THE COMPILER OF THIS WEB SITE IS GRATEFUL FOR THIS OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION
"Thomas and Dorothy Burgess and their young family came from Cornwall, England in (or not far from) 1630 and settled in Lynn (or Salem), Massachusetts Bay Colony." All Burgess researchers have seen similar statements -and some have accepted part or all as fact. Our purpose in this article is to question (and perhaps generate some discussion about) the Cornwall origin, but first let us look briefly at the supposed arrival date of the Burgess family in New England. "I do not know who was the first one responsible for the assertion that Thomas came to these shores abou

Roger, called de Toeni or de Conches; born probably c1104; married Ida,daughter of Baldwin III, Count of Hainault, and died between autumn 1157and the beginning of 1162. [Burke's Peerage]
ROGER DE TOENI III, styled also DE CONCHES, 1st son and heir, was bornprobably about 1104, and succeeded his father about 1126. In 1131 heattested Henry I's pancarte confirming all the grants of his ancestorsand himself and others to the abbey of Conches. He is said to have wagedwar with Hugh de Chateauneuf in 1133. In 1135 the King suspected that hewas preparing to rebel, together with William Talvas, Count of Ponthieu,on behalf of Henry's son-in-law, Geoffrey Plantagenet, and sent his ownsoldiers to garrison the castle of Conches. After the King's death Rogersupported Geoffrey and his wife the Empress Maud against Stephen. AfterEaster 1136 hostilities began between him and the King's generals, thetwins Waleran, Count of Meulan, and Robert, Earl of Leicester; and civilwar raged in May and June. In the autumn the fighting flared up again;but on 3 October Roger was ambushed and captured by Count Waleran andHenry de la Pommeraye. His land was laid under an interdict and he waskept in prison for more than 6 months, butwas released in 1137. In May1138 he was attacked by the Count of Meulan and William d'Ypres, butdefended himself successfully; and on 7 September he captured Breteuiland burnt the town. However, before the end of 1138 he made peace withthe twin Earls, who conducted him to England, where he was reconciled toKing Stephen. Nothing is known of what happened to his English landsduring this period. In 1150 or 1151 he was with Henry, Duke of Normandy,at Rouen. After Henry had become King, Roger enjoyed the royal favour;for between Michaelmas 1157and Michaelmas 1158 the King granted him 100solidates of land at Holkham, Norfolk. He was a benefactor to the abbeysof la NoŽ, Conches and Bec.
He married Ida, daughter of BALDWIN III, COUNT OF HAINAULT, by Yolande,daughter of Gerard, COUNT OF GUELDERS. With her he had in marriage fromHenry 120 librates ofland out of the royal demesne at East Bergholt,Suffolk. He died after Michaelmas 1157 and probably before 1162.[Complete Peerage XII/1:763-4, (transcribedby Dave Utzinger)]

Subject: Idenity of Countess Ida revisited [2nd try]
Roger de Toeni [the third of that name, or III] was born ca. 1104, anddied afterMichaelmas 1157, presumably before his son died in 1162. Hemarried Ida of Hainault, daughter of Baldwin III, Count of Hainault, byhis wife Yolande de Guelders. It is not known when Ida died, but shepresumably survived him, as Henry II granted her [Ida de Tounay] land atGarsington, co. Oxford [Rot. Hund.].

Norfolk, of her son Baldwin de Toeni[II] (1170-1216), Seigneur deAcquigny, apparently father of Roger deAkeny and Sir William Dakeny [Acquigny]. The Rotuli de Dominabus statesthat Ade/Alda was born about 1155, and that she had five daughters asidefrom her son Baldwin. [Does anyone have any Dakeny ancestry?]
(3) Baldwin de Toeni, who settled in Hainault [having resided withhisuncle Baldwin IV], where he died in 1170, leaving issue.
