So I have had my mum take a DNA test and she is getting a very large number of hits to other people with family connections to the Alsace, (Bas-Rhin, Haut-Rhin, Lorraine, Moselle) France, Switzerland and just over the boarder in Germany (Baden Wurttemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate) between about 1600-1800. Finding this very interesting!!

Perks1 has written:

"I have also looked into the estate of Beebee Burnoo, my 3xgrt grandmother, which was administered in 1830/31 by a Major William Pattle later Lieutenant Colonel William Pattle."

I have a lot of detailed information on this William Pattle (1873-1865) and on the Pattle family generally.

I am very interested in Beebee Burnoo. Please contact me (new member).14 Jan 2018

Hello Lanod

Thanks for your reply.

Since my original post evidence seems to indicate that the 1830/31 Will administered by Major William Pattle is probably that of William Milne, Beebee Burnoo's partner, and father of their children. William Milne must die some time between 1825 and 1830.

It seems that Beebee Burnoo then has a liaison with an Alexander MacDonald with whom he has 2 children Mary Anne MacDonald (born 1828) and Alexander George MacDonald (1830-1873). Alexander MacDonald died in 1833 and his will and legitimizes his children with Beebee Burnoo. He states that his wife Mary has returned to England and Alexander leaves everything including his property to Beebee Burnoo.

Hope this is of interest.

Many thanks.
It appears that William Pattle had an Indian mistress and I initially thought that it might have been your Beebee Burnoo.
