The name Burlas comes from one of the family having 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 Burlas 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".

Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Burlas, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : John Burles, who arrived in New England in 1635; Jo. Burles, who settled in New England in 1635; Nich Burlace, who settled in Virginia in 1666; Thomas Burl, who settled in Maryland in 1677.
