The many generations and branches of the Burlace family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a cup-bearer. In the Middle Ages mead and wines flavored with sugar, spices, fruit and herbs were served at banquets, usually in silver goblets. The surname Burlace probably comes from the Old English byrele or byrle, which means "a cup bearer or butler," and the original holder of this name would have been employed in this capacity in a noble household. Surnames that end with "s" could indicate certain patronymic origin as well; the name could mean "the son of the cup-bearer".

Burlace Early Origins



The surname Burlace was first found in Essex, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Burlace family emigrate to North America:
