This covers all mentions of the surnames BURROW and BURROUGH from the counties of Devon and Cornwall in England.

I intend to put up Lists of Names from Various OPRs, Indexes, Census records, and Directories. IF you have an ancestor or a relative with the surname (LNAB) of BURROW or BURROUGH and they were born in Devon or Cornwall, then feel free to add the template, or the category link which can both be found on the Category Page link above.

Please note, I will not be doing any family where the surname is spelt Burrows - although some families who were Burrow/Burrough in Devon/Cornwall, were mispelled as Burrows or other variations in the public records. BURROWS and BURROUGHS with the S on the end, are far more common in northern England, especially in Lancashire.

Burrough is an East Devon name in 1881 and Burrow seems to have two origins: one in Devon, the other in Cumbria. Forms with a final s are much less common in Devon than further north and east in England. Source - GENUKI Devon surnames

There are some places in Devon and Cornwall that have a high number of families with the Burrow or Burrough Surnames. Two such places in East Devon are Ottery St Mary and Morchard Bishop. In Cornwall, the Burrow name is quite common around Morwenstow. There are several other small clusters of the Burrow name elsewhere such as in Exeter, and various other places in East Devon.

Just for the record, my own Burrow ancestors came from Ottery St Mary (or OSM for short), although they did tend to travel and move to other parts of the county, and later the country.

Also for the record, I saved a lot of lists and records pertaining to the Burrow name during the years of 2005 to 2007 while I was a member of the genealogy site - British Origins. That site is now part of Find My Past, (or FMP for short) and these records can probably be found at FMP. But I am currently not a paid up member of FMP.

Hi, I would like to join the Burrow One Name Study. I can trace my Burrow ancestors back to Bratton Clovelly and the earliest I have is a marriage in 1739.

I am new to Wikitree. My relatives are Burrow - no S from Cullompton Devon. John Burrow1797/ Sarah Hallett1793/

Children: Thomas B(1824)/ Jane Knight(1821)Brighton Jane(1843) Sarah E.(1838) William(1837) Rebecca(1835) John (1834) Lydia(1832) Ann(1826) I am looking for marriage record for Thomas and Jane Knight Married in Brighton then the moved to St George Hanover Square London. He was a tailor. I am trying to establish if their child Susan/Susannah was born out of wedlock or born to another husband. Your record of the Burrow family is very interesting.
