I think just about any Burt can trace their line back to Scotland or England.I haven't found a Burt convict. Our family left Scotland early 1900's The men had been in the Boer War and one brother returned there to South Africa and another came with his wife and her family.One brother went to Western Australia and the 4 girls went to live in Sydney New South Wales. There are other families of Burt in Australia not are not related to us-that I know of? Am willing to exchange information with you Cheers gmar

Hi, just discovered the site from a tenuous search for information on Burt's in Dunfermline, and this thread was quite eye opening...Firstly I am still wet behind the ears in tracing my family tree, but I am a Burt...and I am from Dunfermline, Scotland.

It is quite incredible to think that the family line might venture out so far around the world.

Any questions about Burt's in the area, I'd be happy to try and help

(also sorry for the reply on such an old thread)

Black, in his "Surnames" has this as a Fife name. A Robert Burt witnessed a "tack" (lease) by the Abbot of Cupar 1521 & a later Robert was charged in Dundee with aiding the English 1552. Bessie Burt, Dunfermline 1590 etc'
