Burwell Family Graves

A tombstone in the Abingdon Church graveyard in Gloucester County marks the location of the remains of members of the Burwell family, including Lewis Burwell (bap. 1622–ca. 1652) and his wife, Lucy Higginson Burwell, who founded the Burwell family in Virginia. Burwell and his wife were initially buried in the family graveyard on their Carter Creek property, but in 1911 their remains were moved to this current location.
