Hello my name is Pete Violette and I’m researching a William Burton b. 1760 Dorsetshire, England; d. 1819 Northeast Margaree, Cape Breton. We have traced my Grandmother Josephine (Burton) Melville’s linage back to William. I am interested in learning more about the early history of this region and especially of the Burton family from that area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

I don't really know where to start here, but I am looking for info on the Burton family from Chicago. My father was Thomas L. Burton. As far as I know our part of the Burton family was from Whales, but I don't know where?

I am looking for information on William Burton or Burton family history from Accomack County Virginia U.S.A. Would like to trace Burton roots back to England, Ireland, Wales, and surrounding towns,as the Burton family was granted land on The Eastern Shore by the King of England. Land is in Wachapreague area on Nicowampus Creek.
