      Edward's wife Margaret is believed to have been a daughter of Henry Fewell and Sarah Whiteman (who was the sister of John Whiteman), and the granddaughter of Stephen and Katherine Fewell. A Margaret "Burge" is mentioned in King George Co. Inventory Book #1 (p. 47) on 7 May 1725 O.S. as a co-legatee with her sister, Frances Smith, in the accounting of Henry Fewell's estate; at this time, there is no other known Burge(s) family living within fifteen miles of the immediate area. Stephen Fewell, Henry's father, was probably born in London in 1653 (christened on 7 Nov. 1653 O.S. at St. Olave's Parish, Southwark), the son of William Fewell, was transported to the colonies in 1674, and witnessed the will of John Waight in Old Rappahannock County, VA on 3 Mar. 1679 (Will Book #2, p. 151, mentioned as then being 26 years of age). Fewell bought fifty-eight acres of land in Richmond (later King George) County, VA on 20 Feb. 1692/93 O.S., bounded by Hugh Williams, John Owens, and James Lamb, believed to be within a mile of Bronaugh's land, near the intersection of Lambs Creek and the Rowling Road (see King George Co. Deed Book #5, p. 5); the only known Fewells in this part of Virginia all appear to be his descendants. Al­though the connection of Margaret "Burge" with Edward Burges is not certain, it is the most probable interpretation of the known facts. Margaret Burges is listed in surviving land tax lists of Stafford Co. in 1768, 1773, and 1776 as the owner of 100 acres. She probably died between 1776-80, and certainly by 1783, when a second inventory of Edward's estate is recorded in the index book for Stafford Co. Liber #N (p. 535; the volume itself failed to survive the burning of the county courthouse during the Civil War).
