About Burke’s Family Records (Indexed)

Burke’s Family Records, contained in this database, record the genealogy of the junior houses of British nobility. The “cadets” or younger sons of a noble family did not usually receive inherited lands or titles and their descendents were often overlooked by lineage records of the peerage (titled British nobles). Details of family origins, surnames, events, and locations are recorded for about 300 British cadet lines; some are accompanied by coats of arms. At the beginning of the work is an index of pedigrees and alliances.

Author Ashworth P. Burke is the son of Sir Bernard Burke who published many works regarding British genealogy with his father, John Burke Esquire. Sir Bernard and Ashworth co-wrote the Peerage and Baronetage and the Landed Gentry about ancestral lineages of English, Scottish, and Welsh nobility and gentry. Burke’s Family Records is meant to supplement the Peerage and Baronetage and there are several additional genealogical works compiled by the Burke family.
