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.
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 :)

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.

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 grandmother was a burton from Burton Ridge!

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.

My cousin owns the castle in england it is amazing. the Burton family comes from a long line of royalty and riches. way back when the burton had slaves to do work for them the Burton lived the easy life rling slaves of england
Jordan, I'm interested in your cousin's family. My great great grandfather came to this country from England in the mid/later 19th century. He apparently talked about coming from the British aristocracy or nobility. He was, obviously, a Burton. Does your cousin know of any male Burtons who may have come to NY state during the aforementioned time period? I would love to know more about him and this side of my family if possible. I love knowing about my ancestors. It gives me such a greater sense of my place in the world, in history. Thanks!

my grandmother an africa american out of louisana, born a free slave in the late 1800's had to recieve her name from he slave decended black parents, yes for those reasons I too would like to know who her parents slave master was, so I could sue the estate of current rich families, to pay for the injustices as a formal slave decended, for the shit im currently going thru.
not sure that would hold up in court...
