The Queen"s College.
Burdett was the offspring of a Warwickshire family, who had settled also in Derbyshire. In 1659, he went to Queen"s College, Oxford and then was called to the bar by Gray"s Inn in 1662. On the death of his father in 1696, he succeeded to the baronetcy.
Burdett entered the English House of Commons in 1679, sitting for Warwickshire in the next both years.
In 1689 he was elected for Lichfield, which he represented until his retirement in 1698. In Parliament he spoke unsuccessfully against the attainder of Sir John Fenwick, 3rd Baronet, who was beheaded shortly afterwards.
He was nominated a Deputy Lieutenant in 1704, serving for Warwickshire. By her Burdett had another four sons and as many daughters.
Robert, his only surviving son had predeceased him for two week and so the title was claimed by the former baronet"s younger brother Walter.
