Burkitt, William M.A., a pious and learned divine of the Church of England, was born at Hitcham, in Suffolk, July 25, 1650, and was admitted at Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, in 1664. From the college he came to Bilston Hall, in Suffolk, and was chaplain there. In 1671 he was settled in Milden, in Suffolk, where he remained twenty-one years, as curate and rector, eminently acceptable and useful.
