The chronicles of the Burnsyde family reach back into Scottish history to an ancient tribe known as the Picts. The ancestors of the Burnsyde family lived in one of the many places by the same name. The name means dweller at the brookside from the Old English work burne which means brook and the word side.

Burnsyde Early Origins



The surname Burnsyde was first found in Fife, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The crossing to North America did not seem so great in comparison with the hardships many Scots endured at home. It was long, expensive, and cramped, but also rewarding. North America offered land and the chance for settlers to prove themselves in a new place. And many did prove themselves as they fought to forge a new nation in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of those Scots can now experience much of their once-lost heritage through the Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up across North America in the last century. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Burnsyde: James Burnside who settled in Georgia in 1733; Joseph Burnside settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1757; Margaret Bovey Burnside settled in Charles Town in 1757.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Gradatim plena
Motto Translation: Full by degrees.
