William Ellerburton **
b 26 Dec 1705 St. Barnabas' Chapel, Prince George's County, Maryland , d 1762 Frederick County, Maryland MD, m Lucretia Walker ** http://groups.yahoo.com/group/burton_genealogy/message/112?var=1
► William EllerBurton, who was a tobacco planter in the Spencerville / Burtonsville area of Montgomery County, Maryland (at that time, part of Frederick County) in the mid-1700s, and who died May 11, 1762, son, Basil Burton (died 1-15-1823) and his wife, Alice Duvall.
► William’s mother reported as Jane Waters. His plantation bordered the Patuxent River in Montgomery Co.Burtonsville is named after his family
► Burtonsville almost certainly is named for the Burton family, of which William EllerBurton is the
earliest member known to me thus far who settled there. There is a small family graveyard in Burtonsvile, in which a number of his descendants are buried. There are still Burtons there today. Burtonsville is a placename, not an incorporated town. Although since 1776 it has been in Montgomery County, from 1748-1776 the land comprising that county was part of Frederick County, and before 1748 was part of Prince George's County. (Thus the latter county's Land Records may show conveyances to him.) Present Montgomery County was not settled until the early 1700s.
He was apparently illegitimate, for his birth record of 26 Dec 1705 in Queen Anne’s Parish, Prince George’s County, Maryland, gave only a name for his mother, JANE WATERS, and left the name of his father blank.
Nothing is known of his wife, whom he married perhaps around 1730, although her surname is assumed by some to have been WALKER, based on the middle name given to their eldest son.
On 23 Aug 1742 William purchased slaves from a William Prather in Prince George’s County, for £12.5.6.
On 20 Feb 1756 William had a land “re-survey” completed in Frederick County (created in 1748 from parts of Prince George’s County). A property called Content consisted of an original lot of 50 acres with a log cabin, which he purchased from an Edward Lloyd for £28.18, plus an additional 578 acres adjoining the 50, called a “Vacancy”. This apparently was a grant to William and not a purchase, and was approved by the Governor of Maryland. The whole property was subsequently called Resurvey on Content based on this extensive re-survey done by an Isaac Brooke to verify the property boundaries
On 27 Sep 1758 William, listed as a Planter of Frederick County, sold 27 acres for 5 shillings to the planter Edward Browning Sr (his son-in-law), part of a tract called Friendship, which was in turn part of the tract Resurvey on Content.
William made his will on 1 Mar 1762, and died before it was proved on 11 May 1762. He disposed of his lands to his children, and in addition to Resurvey on Content also mentioned Foxden, the name of the property where he actually lived. His wife, not named in the will, presumably predeceased him.

Bazzel/Basil Burton (Joshua-William--**)
B: 3/22/1788 Penn Menallen, Fayette County D: 12/16/1865 in Shelby OH http://www.ohiogenealogyexpress.com/shelby/shelbyco_history_loc_chpt_xxii.htm http://listsearches.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/OHSHELBY/2000-05/0959391317 http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/OHSHELBY/2003-02/1044346346 http://ohiogravestones.org/view.php?id=109556
► Lucy Burton Coon's brother Bazzel/Basil Burton also moved to Shelby Co. He was married to Eleanor Cole. One of Basil and Eleanors daughters, Lucy, married Martin Sullenbarger.
BAZZEL BURTON Forest Hill, Washington Twp. Cemetery Miami County, Ohio
MARRIED Elinor Cole 28 August 1816 Pickaway County, Ohio BORN 10 March 1788 Pennsylvania DIED 1865
► Although some records spelled his first name Basil or Basel, it was usually spelled Bazzel, Bazzell or Bazzle. Bazzell served in the War of 1812, apparently at different times in Renick’s Regiment, Denny’s Regiment, and Capt. Robert Reid’s Company, all of Ohio. He married ELINOR/ELEANOR COLE on 29 Aug 1816 in Pickaway County. She was the daughter of broad cole jr. and elizabeth [unknown], another Maryland family that had gone to Pennsylvania and then Ohio.
In Shelby County, just a few counties to the northwest of Pickaway, the township of Turtle Creek was organized in 1820. A few families started settling there as early as 1812, and Bazzell was documented there in 1817, the family said to have carried all their possessions on the backs of two horses. They were, however, discouraged by the wildness of the country, leased out their land there and apparently went back to Pickaway County, where they were listed in Scioto at the 1820 Census. The same census also found his brothers William and Thomas heading their own households in Madison, Pickaway County.
It was also said that Bazzell and Elinor went to live in Picqua in Miami County (presumably after 1820) and remained there until 1826, when they returned to farm the land at Turtle Creek, remaining there until his death. Census records from 1830-1860 confirm this. In 1840 a female aged 70-79 lived with them, likely Bazzell’s mother. In 1850 only the three youngest children remained in the household. Their real estate was valued at $4000.00 and they lived “twenty doors” away from JOHN HUMPHREY, who had married their daughter Mary. In 1860 David and Elizabeth were still in the household, and their real estate was valued at $7500.00
Elinor died in 1860 after the census was taken on 1 June, and Bazzell died on 16 Dec 1865 in Turtle Creek. Both were buried there in the Carey Cemetery.

► Eleanor (Elinor) Cole was born 9/13/1794 in Pennsylvania and died 6/13/1860 in Turtle Creek Township, Shelby County, Ohio. Eleanor married Bazzel (Basil?) Burton 8/28/1816 in Pickaway County, Ohio. Bazzel was born 3/22/1788 in Pennsylvania, a son of Joshua and Nancy (Beckett?) Burton, and died 12/16/1865 in Turtle Creek Township. Joshua was born 10/24/1745 in Frederick County, Maryland. Nancy was born 1750/1751 in Maryland. Eleanor and Bazzel were buried in the Carey Cemetery, Turtle Creek Township. The Federal Census for 1820 listed the Burtons in Harrison Township, Pickaway County. The Federal Census for 1830. 1850, and 1860 listed the Burton family in Turtle Creek Township. The family moved from Pickaway County to Shelby County on horseback in either 1816 or 1817 when they entered Land in Turtle Creek Township. The land was so wild and so sparsely settled that they let a lease on the land and returned to Piqua, Miami County, Ohio. They remained in Piqua until 1826 when they returned to Shelby County.
