  The following comes from Commoners & FMG except that Commoners just mentions Thomas without showing anything about his family. Visitation (Leicestershire) mentions just Robert & Thomas and follows Robert's line but not Thomas's. 'DerbyGB' mentions just Robert & Thomas but follows both their lines. FMG supports most of the following, following Thomas's line albeit not identifying his wife (who is named by 'DerbyGB').
  b. Thomas Burton
  m. Elizabeth Shaw (dau/heir of Robert Shaw of the Hill)
  (1) John Burton of (Totley in) Dronfield, Derbyshire ## shown here by 'DerbyGB' & FMG, possible alternative ancestry shown below ##
  m. Elizabeth Revell (dau of Richard Revell of Stannington)
  c. Catherine Burton shown by Visitation as of previous generation
  m. _ Miller of Lee, Wiltshire
  d. Mary Burton shown by Visitation as of previous generation
  m. John Wakefield of Castle Gresley
e.+ other issue - Ralph, Richard of London, Margaret (d unm)
  ii. William Burton (dsp)
  iii. Modevina (Mudwynne or Mary) Burton
  m. (1519) William Crewker of Twiford
  iv. Dorothy Burton
  m. John Wilnes of Melburne
2. Richard Burton of Chesterfield (a 1465)
  m. Anne Barnesley (dau of Robert Barnesley of Yorkshire)
  Commoners mentions Richard, identifying him as ancestor of Thomas, Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1628, and Francis, Sheriff in 1666. That would appear to support Visitation (Derbyshire, 1662-4, 'Burton of Dronfield') in showing John of Dronfield below. 'Hallamshire' (used for the continuation) supports this also. However, as reported above, we follow 'DerbyGB' & FMG in showing that John above.
  A. John Burton of Totley in Dronfield (a 1510)
  m. Elizabeth Shaw (dau/coheir of Robert Shaw of the Hill)
  i. John Burton of Totley in Dronfield, Derbyshire ## shown here by Visitation (Derbyshire, 1662-4, 'Burton of Dronfield'), alternative ancestry shown above ##
  m. Elizabeth Revell (dau of Richard Revell of Stanington)
