Children with Rebecca/2 Sikes:

Nathaniel/2 Burt was baptised "on or after" 27 Mar 1638 at Harberton, Devonshire.1 The family emigrated to New England, sojourning briefly at Roxbury before moving on to Springfield, where he took the oath of fidelity, 23 Mar 1655/56.2 There he married, 15 Jan 1662/63, Rebecca/2 Sikes, daughter of Richard/1 Sikes and Phebe (–?–).3,4 With his brother Jonathan fined 6d for nonattendance at a town meeting 11 Apr 1665.5 2 Feb 1668/69, signed a petition with brother Jonathan protesting the Crown's imposition of customs upon goods being exported into and from Massachusetts Bay Colony.6 Took the freeman's oath at Springfield, 1 Jan 1678/79.7 Received, in his mother's will, 27 May 1684, of which he was executor with brother Jonathan, her great brass kettle and four acres in the 'forral Lotte' to bestow upon his son Henry at his decease.8 Nathanll. Burt Senr. of Springfield again took the freeman's oath 19 Dec 1690.9
     They lived in that part of Springfield which became Longmeadow, where Rebecca died 28 Jan 1711/12,a. 704, and he 29 Sep 1720, a. 82.1,10 They are buried in Longmeadow Cemetery.11
     Nathaniel Burt gave land for the erection of a school, about which Henry S. Burt writes: "He had no example; there had been no gifts to suggest such an act on his part. His own limited opportunities, his experience in business life, no doubt brought to his mind the importance of better public schools, and his gift of land to Longmeadow for educational purposes, was the very first made in this part of New England. At that time, or shortly prior to it, only very few of the residents could write their names when signing public papers. No less than five selectmen made their marks, and among the number was Nathaniel Burt. This need not, however, lessen the respect of his descendants for him. He was evidently a man of ability or he would not have been on the board of selectmen."12
