Re: Martha Burniston: Jane Muehsam 3384 USA
I am one of a family of Burnistons originating in Ayrshire,Scotland. We are aware of the village of Burniston in Yorkshire and believe that the family name originated in that area. The data from the early 1800's in Pannal and Harewood which you posted re Martha Burniston last year would appear to confirm that the early family came from Yorkshire. We are also aware that branches of the family are presently located in the Middlesborough area and on Tyneside not too far from the original Yorkshire base and also in Kent.However we have no information on when (or how or why )our ancestors came to Scotland. Are you able to help ?If you are interested can provide details of my immediate family.
