Early Origins of the Burward family


The surname Burward was first found in Berwickshire where they were a family of great antiquity deriving their surname from Berwick or Barwick, which, when arriving south in England in the early 15th century became Burwood, Berwood, Burward, Burwald.

There is also a Burwood in Shropshire which dates back centuries. Burwardsley is found in Cheshire and dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Burwardeslei. Literally this place name means "woodland clearing of the fort-keeper, or of a man called Buregweard." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
