Burnyeat of Whitehaven

I'm pleased to announce that Nev. Ramsden has placed a new article on my Rumbutter website at:


"This article attempts to show how the descendants of one man, Phillip Burnyeat, who was the son of a yeoman farmer from a west coast Lakeland valley, came to Whitehaven in about 1770. Here he prospered. His descendants, like many other people from west Cumberland, went on to leave their County and make their way elsewhere in the world."
