Recent updates to the data

April 2011......Details of some of the Shetland Burgar/Burgess families have added to website.  In particular, the history of the Burgar/Burger families from 1500s to 1750 and also details of selected Burgar/Burgess families in Shetland from 1750 to the present day. 

April 2010.....    Other families have been added to the website, notably the Peacock, Webster, Little, Jameison families.   DNA studies have been used to show the relationship of certain branches of the Peacock family.

December 2009.....  The website has been updated with details of many of the ancestral families of the author.

The layout of the website has changed in order to accommodate these extra families. These families can be found by clicking All Families and then Related Families on the Home page Menu.

Additionally there are more photos, stories and family trees, all of which have an index table.

Many persons have supplied me with new information which I should have entered.  If I have omitted to do so, I would like to apologise, and would be pleased to receive a reminder. Thanks

There will undoubtedly be errors in presentation and fact, so I would be pleased to receive corrections and suggestions for improvements.

April 2008......The English Burgar in the London area are descended from John Burgar (1742-1797). 

The Sheffield Burgar are descended from Walter Burgar (about 1790 - after 1832).  Walter has been shown to be related to the London Burgar family by DNA studies.  In 2005 it had been assumed that Walter was the son of John Burgar (1742-1797), but this has been found to be incorrect. 

It is unclear who his parents were. Tentatively, it has been assumed that Walter is the son of Robert Burgar (1754-1820), although this has not been proved.
