We have traced the Burness family history from Enochs Point, Victoria Australia to Charles Burness b 14 July 1819. His father was John Burness who married Christian Mitchell. We believe that the Burnesses date back to the poet Burns. Do you have any further details or ideas to assist us.
Henry Skeete married Maria Meadows 27 Aug 1843 Edinburgh. Their daughter Mary Skeete married John Burness and we have the family Bilble that has clear handwritten details of their family.
