    In the Mercury (Hobart) 13 June 1872, a death of a James Burgoyne, Cooper, third son of the late Edward Burgoyne of the 63rd Regiment.  I do not have a James recorded as a child of Edward Burgoyne and Catherine Cruse – he would have been born 1829.  However, when Daniel Burgoyne died, he was listed as the fourth son, so there may be two other sons born before James.
