The Burton Family from Queensland, Australia

Updated December 19, 2010

About Our Family Research


Our family stems from John Nicholas Burton who jumped ship in Australia. The story we were told is he was fairly wild and the sea captain, a friend of his father's, said he would take him to settle him down. When he arrived in Australia he changed his name. We have been unsuccessful in finding out who he was. His eldest son was Gilbert Walter Burton - we have thought his surname could have been Gilbert. (Walter is his mother in law's maiden name) and Gilbert is similar to Burton. So far we have had no luck in tracing John Nicholas Burton's life prior to arriving in Australia. John Nicholas married Lucy Agnes Dowling, they had Blanche, Gilbert, Lucy, Mabel, Phoebe, Ada, Alfred, Ruby, Leslie, Violet, Jessie and Eva.
