Notes for James Burt
International Genealogy Index files list James and Elizabeth as the parents of “Edward Kyvet [sic]” and of his brother George, thus establishing their names.89

There is a christening record of a James Burt in East Chinnock, Somerset on Feb 4, 1779 which could be him, thus suggesting parents of Edward and Mary, although this is not verifed to be our James.89,123

There is another baptismal record of a James Burt at the Church of St. Catherine in Montacute on Jan 26, 1777 with the parents William and Sarah, another candidate for our James. The time is better for this James but the names William and Sarah don’t carry on down our line.123

The marriage record from Stoke Sub Hamdon that is assumed to be his and Elizabeth’s, dated a year before the birth of their son Edward, lists the groom’s abode as Montacute.123

His occupations are from Bessie Lina Burt’s family tree.35 He may have been a Stone mason as well as there exists a document: “Manor of Ilminster RELEASE of nine and a half acres called Newwoods, Eastfield etc., Mary Kingston of Montacute, to James Burt of Montacute, Stone Mason, and others. Attested copy on 3 sheets folio. 1797, copy 1823.”157

There is a burial record in the Church of St. Catherine, Montacute for a James Burt on Apr 5, 1830, age 80 which could be him and would put the birth year ca 1750.123 There is also a baptismal record in the Church of St. Catherine, Montacute for a James Burt on May 11, 1749, son of James and Elizabeth. But if that were him then he would have been 45 when he married -- less likely but not impossible.123

There is a record of James Burt, widower from Montacute marrying Hannah Anstice on July 23, 1823 with witnesses George Anstice and James? Anstice by licence in the parish of South Petherton in the Church of Saints Peter & Paul.
