My ggmother was Malvana Burns born in Bath Co., VA.. I have some additional information but need confirmation. Family end up in Texas among other places
I am descended from Walter Burns and his wife Agnes Anderson, of Lanark County Ontario, through their son Walter married to Mary Ann Roberts (her second husband was James Skiffington), and their grandson Walter married to Elizabeth Dougherty. This couple moved to Manitoba, and their gt-grandson was my Dad, Donovan Samuel Brown. Walter and Agnes came from Stirlingshire Scotland. Walter was in the Royal Artillery during the Napoleonic Wars.
I too have the Lanark Era books - what a wonderful resource. They helped me immensely!!
Love to chat with you, Robert
Hello. I am Christine Burns. I am studying with the National Institute and have just joined this group. Is there anyone researching English Burns?
I am researching my husbands family who emigrated from Derbyshire to New Zealand in 1879. The name has been variously spelt Bourne, Burn and Burns. By the mid 1850s the spelling had standardised as Burns.
William Bourne was baptised at Church Broughton Derbyshire, UK in 1824, the son of Elizabeth Bourne, single woman.
William was an agricultural labourer who married Sarah Toplis in Mickleover, Derbyshire, UK and they had 9 children, the youngest born in Long Eaton, Derbyshire. William had become a gas works labourer and moved to Long Eaton to manage the gas works on Trent Station. He was active in local affairs. The sons and daughters all worked in either the lace industry or the railways. The eldest son James was a wagonmaker. He married Elizabeth Miller in Nottingham. They had two sons born in Litchurch, Derbyshire.
On arriving in New Zealand James settled in Christchurch and obtained work in the Addington Railway yards coach workshop. On reaching adulthood the sons settled in the North Island where they obtained land. James & Elizabeth joined them on James retirement.
