I am a Burton from So. California. I would be interested in any information about where we all came from. My father was Robert Lee Burton and his brother Gene was my uncle. There was a boy, Terry, born in the 50s to my dad. We have never been able to find him.
Burton is of British origin. There is a castle and estate in England to this very day that belongs to a prominent Burton family. There have been many Burtons knighted down through the years.

Hello fellow Burton's!
Mr. Erwin Heinrich Lepiarczyk II
I have always been very proud of my Burton family heritage. My earliest known Burton family ancestor was Thomas Burton, who owned the Cobbs plantation in Virginia along the Appomattox River. When Thomas Burton's descendants came to Kentucky as pioneers by the early 19th century they settled in Pulaski County, Kentucky near present day Nancy. From there, my Burton ancestral family members moved to Adair County, Kentucky and established the famed Burton Ridge. My lineage includes: generation I- Thomas Burton (ca. 1633-before 1687). generation II- John Burton (ca. 1666-ca. 1754). generation III- James Burton. generation IV- James Burton (ca. 1733-1814). generation V- William Burton (-1814). generation VI- Arthur Burton (-1855). generation VII- James Madison Burton (1818-1897). generation VIII- Chrisley Burton (1853-1939). generation IX- Effie Burton Grider (1896-1987). generation X- Katherine Louise Grider Lepiarczyk. generation XI- Erwin Heinrich Lepiarczyk II.
my mom was is a burton ,family from delaware which started in england got a land grant from the king of england 1600 in accomac virgina up in to southern de know as longneck. the one that started my line was called william of accomac, family can be traced to late 1100's in england. family help founded st georges chapel.
I was born a Burton, my grandfather was born in southern Ireland Co.Kerry. Patrick Burton. a sfar as i am aware i dont know where the name comes from? but it didnt sound Irish!! but there it is my gt grandfather, Paddy Burton married a Mary Mannix on the 14th of june 1840. then they produced my grandfather Patrick Burton. they had 9 children one of which was my father Joseph Burton who was one of a twin William Burton. i saw the birth/baptism records in the book Aat the church in Cahirciveen. co.kerry. much emphasise is placed on who was born first.. which was my father Joseph Burton.there parents went through the potato famine as such a lot of people then.
Sadly i do not know much about my heritage on my father's side, but after seeing this on our last name, I am interesting in researching as far back as possible. People have told me I look irish/english/german, mostly due to my reddish beard even though I have brown hair.
I do know that most of my dad's family resided in Colorado Springs, CO, but after that, I don't have any info or resources to go back further in time :(
I am planning on doing a DNA test (natgeo/23andme) to see where I come from and recommend you all do the same! For anyone that doesn't have a maintained family records/history book I highly recommend this process as it gives you scientific evidence of where your genes came from!
happy hunting guys :)
Interesting read. My mother has been doing the genealogy for both her side and my fathers side. It is interesting to learn some of the family history.

Margaret Duncan nee BurtonI
I am the 1st member of my clan to be born in Canada. My parents Richard & Rose Elsie came from Birmingham & Sheffield England And go back as far as 1699. I have been trying to find out what happened to my brother born July 20th 1907.After working as a farm labourer on cming to Can in 1923 he worked for ashort time for the CNR repairing train tracks, then went to USA and joined the military. He was posted to the Phillipines about 1927, When he was returned to America he went AWOL and told my mother he had destroyed all his identification and the last timehe was heard from was a Hostel in Clamath Falls. HE has died but I wish I could have a clue to what happened to him. I have tried every resource I know but have had no luck. Margaret
Dana P Burton
I'm from Ottawa Canada, and all my Burton relatives come from North East Margaree Cape Breton NS. My line goes back to a William Burton which came from Newfoundland to Margaree in the early 1800's
I'm a Burton from California, part of the first generation of my my paternal family born in America. My father, Paul Burton was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, England. His father, George William Thirwell Burton was a stone mason who spoke with such a thick Northern English accent you could barely understand him. The name is English, there are several towns throughout England named Burton. I've heard the name can be traced back to the Normans who came came over from France in the 11th century. I had a friend in high school named Colin Berton, who was of French descent (spelled the name with an E in place of the U) so maybe the spelling Burton could be an anglicization of an old Northern French surname. Curious.
