My mother's maiden name is Burnett. My great-great-great-great grandfather was born in Scotland around 1799, and married and had children in Wigton, England. His grandson, John, emigrated to New Zealand sometime after 1871 and before 1883, when he married in Christchurch, New Zealand.
A professional researcher, hired by another descendant, says that my gggg-grandfather was born in Banchory-Ternan, his parents being Alexander (b. 1768) and Mary Elwes, and paternal grandfather William Burnett. I would like to discover if this information is accurate.
I'm currently living in Berkshire, England, and looking forward to visiting Wigton and Newcastle-upon-Tyne next week (August 2015).
