Surnames: Burks
The Burks came from the marriage of the Princess and Mr. Hughes which produced a daughter who married a Davis, they had a daughter who married a Burks. These are the Burks who lived in Counites along the James River in VA-Amherst and Botetourt Counties. [ this is for the person who was asking if any Burks had Indian blood in the family line]

Do you have documentation for this or is it oral tradition?

A good source to read about the Powhatan Indians and the relationship to the Burks is Patricia Givens Johnson's book entitled "Irish Burks of Colonial Virginia and New River". She researched this family and makes some very good connections. If you can't find the book contact me as I have a copy.

Jean I would love to read a copy of that book. It is said that our line of Burks comes from Pocahontas but am not real sure. Just mainly oral right now. Is this book in libraries. Would appreciate your help.

Linda, you will have to check with your individual library to see if they have a copy. They may be able to do an inter-library loan request if they don't have it.
For those interested, you might check with Walter Johnson, 4201 Prices Fork Rd, Blacksburg, VA 24060-1985; phone: (540) 951-2045. He did have some copies but you will need to contact him to see if he still has any.
Patricia Givens Johnson is deceased.

I was able to purchase my copy from:

Walter Johnson
4201 Prices Fork Rd
Blacksburg, VA 24060-1985
phone: (540) 951-2045

He was the husband of Patricia Givens Johnson and he had some copies at the time I called him.

Patricia Givens Johnson passed away prior to my contacting him so it's possible he no longer has any copies; but it is surely worth a try.

Good luck,
Jean
