Earl Smith's book: The Burson Family
George was supposedly the first American ancestor of the Burson family
of
Springfield Township. George and his wife, Hannah moved to America in
1684 and settled in the neighborhood of Abington,Montgomery County,
Pa.
He was of the Quaker faith, and apparently joined the Quaker colonies
in
Pennsylvania about two years after William Penn initially settled
here.
George became a member of the Abington Monthly Meeting of Friends. He
also became affiliated with George Keith in his schism of 1692, and
was
disowned by the Abington Meeting, but was later reinstated. George and
Hannah moved late in life to a tract of land on the Schuylkill River
in
Gilbert's Manor, a few miles from Valley Forge, where he died in 1715.
This land was acquired from William Penn who received the land from a
debt that was owed him by the King of England, through his father.
His will dated November 26, 1715 was probated february 11, 1716. His
will, Number 13 is on file in the City Hall of Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania.

"Burson Story" by Eleanor Burson and "The History of The Burson
Family"

This article is on the internet, written by Sharman Ramsey at
qqq.southern-style.com:The history ofthe Bursons in this country must
focus on the religious impetus which compelled them to come to
America. I
quote from the Genealogical and Personal Historyof Bucks County,
Pennsylvania written by w. H. Doren in 1905: "Bucks county cherishes
with
faithful affection the names of founders and pioneers, and when,as
sometimes occurs, their decendants have migrated from their ancestral
home and amid other scenes and surroundings have maintained and
increased
the traditional reputation of the race, the old country still follows
their fortunes and rejoices in their success. Such has been the case
with
the Burson family, which traces its history through the following
generations. Joseph Burson "(brother of George, the progenator of this
branch of southern Bursons)" was born in London, England, and was a
member of the Society of Friends. In order to escape persecution to
which
the followers of George Fox were then subjected, he emigrated with his
wife to Pennsylvania in 1681, and made his home in Bucks county, where
he
became a landowner. He was one of the founders of Quakertown and
assisted
in organizing the Richland Meeting."
The family remained Quaker until Joseph moved to South Carolina, when
he
became a Reverend in the Baptist religion. The Bursons in Wilcox
County
helped build the Methodist Church and maintained the church rolls
until
the death of Elliece Burson Williams tucker. Acopy of these rolls
remain
in the family.
