that a hundred and twenty or thirty North Carolina rebels were marching into the colony to occupy the Great Bridge, which, at a distance of nine or ten miles from Norfolk, crossed the Elizabeth river. It rested on each side upon firm dry ground, which rose like islands above the wide spreading morasses, and could be approached only by causeways; so that it formed a very strong pass, protecting the approach to Norfolk by land from the county of Princess Anne and from a part of the county of Norfolk. He had twice received detachments from the fourteenth regiment, which had been stationed at St. Augustine: collecting all of them who were able to do duty, and attended by volunteers from Norfolk, Dunmore on the fourteenth of November hastened to the Great Bridge. Finding no Carolinians, he marched rapidly to disperse a body of militia who were assembled at Kemp's Landing, in Princess Anne. They lay in an ambuscade to receive him, and fired upon his party from a thicket; but being infer
italities of the inhabitants. The designs against the Carolinas left Virginia Mar. free from invasion. Lee, on his arrival at Williamsburg, took up his quarters in the palace of the governor; querulous as ever, he praised the provincial congress of New York as angels of decision compared with the Virginia committee of safety. Yet his reputation ensured deference to his advice; and at Apr. his instance, directions were given for the removal of all inhabitants from the exposed parts of Norfolk and Princess Anne counties; an inconsiderate order which it was soon found necessary to mitigate or rescind. Letters, intercepted in April, indicated some concert of action on the part of Eden, the governor of Maryland, with Dunmore: Lee, though Maryland was not within his district, and in contempt of the regularly appointed committee of that colony, directed Samuel Purviance, of the committee of Baltimore, to seize Eden without ceremony or delay. The interference was resented as an ins

An old-time Medford gardener. The family of Martin Burridge was descended from English stock found in Seething, Norfolk county. Robert, the first ancestor of whom there is any record, was there early in the sixteenth century. John, a great-grandson, became the emigrant ancestor, coming to Charlestown about 1637. One of his sons took Burridge, and another Burrage, as the form for the family name, and their descendants respectively have followed the standard set for them. This line is successively traced from Charlestown to Newton, Concord, Lunenburg, where John of the ninth generation married Lois Barthrick of that town in 1781. His brother Jonathan married Lois' sister Sally. Hannah (sister of John and Jonathan of Lunenburg) married Samuel Buel of Medford, August 22, 1799. John was a soldier in the war of the Revolution. About 1800 he came to Medford, where he died, July 20, 1822. Mr. Francis Converse of Medford, meeting someone by the name of Burridge in Boston, where

Matthew Cushing, who came to America in 1638. Before the sixteenth century, however, it was variously written. In deeds, wills and charters still extant in Norfolk county, England, referring to the direct lineal ancestors of Matthew, we find Cushyng, Cosyn, Cussyen. Before the fourteenth century it was spelled Cusyn— the finalvine aid), is in general use. William Cushing was born during the fourteenth century. He was either the son or grandson of Galfridus Cushyn of Hardingham, Norfolk county, England, who is mentioned in the subsidy roll for Norfolk in 1327. He added to the original estates of Hardingham the estates of Hingham, and these were inhiately proceeded to their destination, Bear Cove, now Hingham, named for the home of the Cushing family in England.
