help or advice wanted - Barnet Burns


Active member
I have a Barnet Burns. He says in the 1841 census that he is 40 years old and born in Scotland. He is down as a lodger. In the 1851 census he says he is 44 (should be 50). He states he is a "British subject". He doesn't make it to 1861 as he has died in East Stonehouse Devon.

My query is did he have any siblings. His father is said to be a George Burns and his mother is said to be Ann Burns nee Stewart.Because he says he is a british subject his birth can be registered in either Scotland or England I'm thinking. Can anyone help re his birth and any siblings he may have had. As always any help will be very much appreciated. Thank you:)
