Matthew Burie (1518 – ????) was the 14th great-grandfather of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant maternal ancestors in the Prescott family line. Born in Ormskirk, Lancashire, Matthew was the father of Jane Burie (1539 – 1597), although little else is known of his life. The details of Matthew’s death remain unknown as are the identity of his parents.
In Cometanic ancestry, Matthew is classified as part of the 16th generation retrograde, thus categorising him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
