    Thomas Burgess

    Thanks Barbara, We know from Thomas's birth certificate his father Joseph Murry Burgess was a labourer. Thomas was a border in 1861 @ age of 17. Perhaps he wasn't born in Witton at all. Think maybe need to find a Murray and a Burgess marriage and then try and work down from there.
