As far as the origins of the Burkett name, Burke is a fairly common Irish name (and in the past spelling modifications for surnames were fairly common from generation to generation), so that is a possibility. Personally, my Burkett descendants came from the Swabia region of Germany, where their name was originally "Burckhardt."
Alfred Burkett Jr.
My father was named Alfred Burkett sr. He is deceased now but am very interested an knowing my family history!
My great grandfather's name was spelled Burkett. They messed up on m grand father's birth certificate and spelled it Byrkett. It has remained that way. His name was David Byrkett.
My father was Charles Ira Burkett, his father Charles Monroe Burkett, all from IN. Not sure of our ethnicity. English, German, Swedish, Irish, French???? At one time I was told our last name was originally spelled Bourquette. But I can't find that anywhere. One characteristic we all seem to have in common is loving the water. My dad and so on, including myself, all love swimming, fishing, diving, camping, boating, just about anything to do with water. We live/d mostly in Martinsville IN and in Florida.
I'm very intrigued in doing family history. My mom's maiden name is Burkett. The name "William" is very common in the Burkett family. All of the Burkett's are related if you're from the United States. I'm from Iowa. Most of the Burkett's settled in Iowa, Georgia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. (A few of those listed may be wrong). If you have questions about our family, please don't hesitate to ask. :)

Kate - I was also told that Burkett originated in Ireland. Dottie - my dad's name is also Loyd Burkett. His dad's name is Marvin Burkett and his grandfather's name was David Burkett. They lived in Tracy, California and then Ripon, California. Perhaps we're distant cousins?

Hm. My dad was Harold Burkett and his father was Charles Lincoln Burkett. Charles had a brother named David but was probably born too early to be your grandfather. I was born in Stockton, CA. My grandparents had a lumber mill in the Bay Area (I think Sonoma).
my grandpa is loyd burkett
I am trying to find information regarding my dad's family. He was L(l)oyd Burkett. I am one of his six daughters and my dad's father was Lee Burkett. I only saw Lee a few times when I was a child due to the fact that he was divorced from my dad's mother and lived in a different state (California). Any info would be greatly appreciated. I know Lee fathered 2 sons and 3 daughters.
Another Will Burket(t) by chance?
