Henry’s mum was Flora Martin and had him when she was 15. Burrell was the name of his Grandmother Annie martins partner. I have done a DNA test and don’t have any matches with Burrell so believe the name has just been taken by both Flora and Henry.

Possibly just one of these mysteries that wil never be solved.

Pity about the Burrell angle.

These types of searches can be so very hard to crack  :-\
