Birth Record in the Burwell Family Bible
A page from the Burwell family Bible lists the nine children—six daughters and three sons—born to Carter Burwell and his wife, Lucy Grymes Burwell, between 1740 and 1755. (It is possible there was a seventh daughter not included here.) The list indicates that one child was born in Williamsburg, and the others were born at either Carter's Grove or Brandon, family plantations along the James River. It records the birthday of Nathanael Burwell—elsewhere, the name is spelled Nathaniel—as Easter Sunday 1750.
