    William Tillman Burley was not really a "Burley" -- he was a Virginia Indian whose tribe made a practice of adopting English-sounding names for its male members. This was done to help them integrate and counter some of the prejudice against Indians in the 1800's. The practice of using fabricated English names in that Virginia tribe continues to this day. From Robert Epps who is descended from Thomas Henry Burley. As far as I can tell, there is documentation for this fact.
