My great-grandfather (Thomas Richard Burdge) was the brother of Samuel Burdge, according to my information. Their parents were John Burdge and Mary Cleary. They had other siblings, one of whom was John Francis Jr., who emigrated from PEI, Canada, to Massachusetts, USA. A widowed Mary Cleary Burdge and a sister of Samuel, Emma, joined John Francis Jr. in the mid-1880s.
I would love to hear from you! I'd like to share info.
