The Anglo-Saxon name Burlingame comes from the family having resided in Norfolk, where they took their name from the village of Burlingham. The place name Burlingham is a constructed of two elements, Burling and -ame. The first element, Burling, is believed to be derived from a diminutive form of an Old English given name, probably from Burgheard or Baerla, while the second element, -ame, is derived from ham, from the Old Norse hami, meaning homestead. The full name means "Burling's homestead".

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Burlingames to arrive on North American shores:
