i thank you all for help in my search. i do know that thomas burrows had 2 sons. the first one peter was born in 1938. dont have any info on the other son. i guess peter may have had children. he didnt want to expand on things i asked him. he did confirm that he was the person i was looking for. i have his phone number but i would not intrude his privacy hes getting on in years.reggie i spoke to peter about 1yr ago after i put a notice in the in the in touch section. he made contact with me via a phone call. i am not an expert on these things, you maybe. but you sound a bit abrupt with me. i have found 7 cousins of mine on this site. we all had a get together, and still meet up a couple of times a year. jax and flip have also have been a great help in my search thanks to all.

There is a Julie born 1963 that is possibly a daughter of one of the peters, who has a could try sending her a message

This is Jean's thread

You seem to think Peter had a brother, but I can only see 2 possible sisters one in 1936 the other in 1940.

Have you tried to make contact with Jean on here, she has Peter & Thomas Burrows and Susannah De La Bertouche in her tree.

Why don't you purchase the mother's death cert? The informant's details may prove helpful.

You aren't going to get anywhere without buying certs...........the name isn't unusual enough


Reggie Report 4 Nov 2012 09:54

What 'sons'?

Why do you now refer to 'sons', having said earlier that you 'hope' he 'may' have had children. What do you actually KNOW......not hope, or assume.

You say you 'spoke' to Peter? When? And where?


Jean Report 4 Nov 2012 00:06

reggie, i dont think he will have a tree on here, just hope one of sons have started a tree.


Reggie Report 2 Nov 2012 22:33

If he wasn't interested in your tree when you spoke to him, I doubt that he has a tree on here.........unless he has had a complete change of attitude


jax Report 1 Nov 2012 23:58

You can only see the trees if they give permission

Send a message asking if they are the person you are looking for.

Why do you think he fathered any children?

What is your connection?


jax Report 1 Nov 2012 02:17

Do you know who he married? there were two born manchester 1938 and two marriages one in 1963 and the other in 1964 which would probably belong to these two

There are also two trees belonging to a Peter Burrows have you contacted them?
