The Lymburner name has been in Scotland since the 1500s, the name is derived from lime burner, an old process for making lime used in mortar by burning limestone. If there is an Italien connection I would be interested in knowing where or how. Since this would have to be birth records of some kind is there any such thing? We are getting back to the begining of birth and mariage registrations in general, started around the 1520s.The Scottish church ordered birth and mariage registrations be done in the parishes in 1551. In England, Cromwell orderedregistrations be done on september 5, 1538, and England was the first country to do so. There are records of the Bishop of Nantes ordering registration as early as 1406 but that was only for his district. So there may have been records for the Royals but not much for the ordinary people.Since Italy did not really exist as a country untill much later, where is the place of origin? And it's records?
