Burnette Family History

Burnette Genealogy & History

Burnette family history reports that this ancient family name was first found in Berwickshire. It is a locational name, meaning one who came from Burnett (a place cleared by burning), in Somerset; it could also mean a small, brown-complexioned person. The family motto is courage grows stronger at the wound. The earliest record was of Robert Burnett in 1128. Later, an Alexander Burnard or Burnett went north with King Robert I and acquired lands in the forest of Drum. Jo and Nicholas Burnett settled in Virginia in 1635, and John Burnett settled in Barbados in 1685. Burnette genealogy includes singer-songwriter Smiley Burnette, and American guitarist Billy Burnette.
