The asterisk* by a name shows a direct ancestor of mine. I have tried to provide adequate references, but my first postings in the late-1990s might not be footnoted. Please ask if in doubt! No entry here is "mass imported;" each has been individually added. This work is dedicated to those who landed at Jamestown, Virginia over four centuries ago, and to those already here who deserved a better end.

    Then, from the Rootsweb Burford List: 2 Nov 1998, Carol Whitehead writes:
    "Here is my Burford line. I have been able to verify back to the elder Daniel, but not beyond.... I am also missing the maiden names of several wives and would really appreciate any help there. Anything you can add to this or any comments would be greatly appreciated. Carol, Houston, TX

    From the Burford Family Genealogy Forum: Re: Daniel Burford of King William Co., Va. Posted by: Sam Burford, January 20, 2000

    "(There is... an Elijah Hastings BURFORD b. 9 February, 1682 in BURFORD, Oxfordshire, England. Elijah is said to have immigrated to Amherst Co. VA on 3 August, 1713. Elijah died 31 January, 1771. He married Mary Jane HASTINGS, they had a son Daniel James BURFORD, b. May 4, 1729.)

    "However, I believe you are looking for the descendants of William BURFORD, the principle.... (ones) of which are as follows:

    "William BURFORD, b. in England, immigrated to Virginia in 1637, md. Anne BURFOOTE, d. 3 October, 1656 in Charles City, VA. (Note: Only one child is attributed to William and Anne)

    "William BURFORD, b. in England, married (?) MILES. (Note: Only one child is attributed to William and (?) MILES).

    "Daniel BURFORD (Elder), b. abt. 1684 in VA. d. abt 1756 in King William Co., VA. He married Sarah MILES. (Note: The term Elder seems to be from his position in the church). Daniel and Sarah had a son William b. 1733 md. Grissell Clement(s).

    "Daniel BURFORD Sr., b. 20 May, 1714 in Gloucester, Co., VA. d. 2 July, 1787 in Amherst Co. VA. He married Mary TAYLOR abt. 1731.

    "Daniel Ambrose BURFORD, b. abt. 1737 in King William Co. VA. d. 21 October, 1811 in Amherst Co. VA. He married Sarah (?) on 1 October, 1758.

    "There are a number of children born to the Burfords identified above, but I just came down the direct line naming the Daniel Burfords, in succession. I noted you have a response from a Mr. Keyes. Years ago (abt 1973), while at Norfolk, Va. I was browsing the Library there and found old will information of a (I believe) William Burford leaving land to a widow Keyes? If you like, I can try sending you a GEDCOM of my BURFORD files. A more complete source is the book "The Elder Daniel Burford, His Ancestors & Descendants Of America (1684-1996), authored by Betty Arnold Loftiss, .
