Thomas, b. 1663/4 (age 16, 1 April 1680),[26] dead in New England by 9 Nov. 1691,[27] m. as first husband Elizabeth ---, d. Boston 4 Nov. 1709,[28] who m. (2) John Bucanan.[29] Apart from the land given him by his father,[17] Thomas Burton (Jr.) was devised for life 226 acres of land and given horses, cattle, a sheep, a year's schooling, and clothing until he reached the age of 17 years, in the will of William Hatcher [see below]. His brother John demanded that his estate be delivered to him on 1 Oct. 1687; the court directed that his stepfather John Steward either deliver the property or give appropriate security.[30] Edward Hatcher, as eldest son and heir of William Hatcher, petitioned the Court 1 Feb. 1691/2 to recover the land devised for life to Thomas Burton (Jr.) by his father,[31] and after the death of Thomas was confirmed the land was in fact delivered to Edward Hatcher. No issue.
