I have traced the Burkitt family back to a John Burkitt who lived in Clarborough, Nottinghamshire. He had a son, Charles Burkitt who married Anne Johnson on 3rd July, 1721. She was christened in Clarborough, 27.6.1697. Charles & Anne married in Walkeringham. Their children were Richard Burkitt (chr. 1723/4), John chr. Sept. 1726, and William chr. May 1730. John married Mary Laughton, William married Ann. Richard Burkitt married Ann Bagnall.

If anyone is researching Burkitts in Nottinghamshire/Lincolnshire, please contact me if your family links with the above.

I am also researching Burkitts in Nottinghamshire. Your post just caught my eye because even though I can't see a connection the names of your Burkitts are very similar to those on mine.

My Burkitts were from Laxton, Nottinghamshire which is not all that far from Clarborough. Perhaps there is a connection furthur back.

John Burkitt (b. c.1605) was a cottager in Laxton. He married Katherine Allicock and they had children Elizabeth, William, Thomas & Ann. Thomas married 4 times and had quite of few children, several Johns who died. One of his sons was Peter, who married Sarah Taylor and had my ancestor Richard Burkitt (b. 1716, Laxton).

Maybe there is no connection but I thought it was interesting.
