The name Burlingham is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived 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



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Burlinghams to arrive in North America:
