Origins Available: English, German


The ancient roots of the Burlin family are found in the German state of Bavaria. The Burlin surname, was a local name, for someone who lived in the city of Berlin, the capital of Germany. The city took its name from a Wendish word which means river rake, or a scaffold of beams built over a river to prevent logs from jamming; the river in question was the Spree. The German name is also found in the Hamburg area, where it may be derived from the village of the same name. Berlin is also an Ashkenazic Jewish local name, derived from the same origins as the German form of the local name. The Burlin family emerged as an influential family and they became noted for their involvement in social, economic and political affairs.

From east to west, these German immigrants populated the United States, settling in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada also provided homes to many. Early settlers bearing the Burlin surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
