Hello! From Green Lake, WI USA

Have been doing genealogy for many years and have traced the Burrells back to Northumbria. Once account states 400AD. My ancestor, John Burrell, of Berwick was allegedly exiled to America by James VI in the 1640s for border disruption. I haven't found that late of an exile, but still searching. Any help would be appreciated!

I have no personal links to any Burrells, but the Burrell Collection is well worth a visit if you ever get here

Oh you bettcha! Some day, some day! I'm playing the lottery because there is a beautiful estate in Berwick for sale. Just 2 milliion U.S. Ya never know! I'm pretty sure my Burrell ancestor was on the side of the Scots, but then from what I read it all depended on which side was more beneficial to them! They were there before Scotland and England existed. My mother's side, the Coopers, are from Oxfordshire. Haven't even begun to dig into that side! Some days I ask myself, do I really need to know all this stuff?!!
