Burness Genealogy and Family History
One Name Study
Robert Burns Family History
Robert Burns was descended from the Burness family of Kincardineshire, where his ancestors were tenant farmers. His father William moved to Ayrshire in 1750, where Robert was born in 1759. Robert signed his name Robert Burness until March 1786, when he adopted the spelling Burns , which was a common name in Ayrshire. The surnames Burn, Burns, Burnes, and Burness all derive from the word burn , which means a small stream, and originated with an ancestor who lived beside a burn . As there are thousands of burns in Scotland and England, there are many unrelated families named Burns. Robert Burns had a total of twelve children by four women, including nine by his wife Jean Armour . Seven of his children were illegitimate, including the first four by Jean Armour before they were married in 1788, although under Scottish law they were considered legitimate after their parent's marriage. Of Jean's children, six died young and another, William Nicol Burns , had no children. All living descendants of Robert Burns and Jean Armour descend from either their grandaughter

A Man's a Man For A' That " This most famous song of liberty and independence gives us an enduring image of Robert Burns. It’s the provocative and defiant Burns, who laughs in the face of the ruling classes and who openly claims that he, and his people, are as good, if not better, than any of them. It’s a sentiment that has characterised the verses of many of Scotland’s best poets, from Blind Harry’s tales of William Wallace to Hugh MacDiarmid’s 20th Century rants. It’s the same sentiment that packs the punch in the Declaration of Arbroath: that although the Scots are poor and harried by more powerful neighbours, what they should always strive for is freedom and independence. These are the types of images that make a bard a bard, a champion of the common people. But Burns’s own life isn’t always consistent with his poetry, and in his time there were many different perspectives on Burns.

BIOGRAPHICAL MEMOIRS National Academy of Sciences
Robert Burns Woodward
By Elkan Blout
R OBERT BURNS WOODWARD WAS the preeminent organic chemist of the twentieth century. This opinion is shared by his colleagues, students, and by other distinguished chemists. Bob Woodward was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and was an only child. His father died when Bob was less than two years old, and his mother had to work hard to support her son. His early education was in the Quincy, Massachusetts, public schools. During this period he was allowed to skip three years, thus enabling him to finish grammar and high schools in nine years. In 1933 at the age of 16, Bob Woodward enrolled in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to study chemistry, although he also had interests at that time in mathematics, literature, and architecture. His unusual talents were soon apparent to the MIT faculty, and his needs for individual study and intensive effort were met and encouraged. Bob did not disappoint his MIT teachers. He received his B.S. degree in 1936 and completed his doctorate in the spring of 1937, at which time he was only 20 years of age. Immediately following his graduation Bob taught summer school at the University of Illinois, but then returned to Harvard's Department of Chemistry to start a productive period with an assistantship under Professor E. P. Kohler. He remained at Harvard until his death in 1979. Although Bob remained formally at Harvard for his entire professional life, he traveled extensively in order to lecture, receive awards, and sometimes to relax for a day or two with friends.

    Robert Burns The National Poet of Scotland biography with information about his family, his loves, his works and his life
    Robert Burns was born on the 25th January 1759 in a clay cottage in Alloway, Ayr built by his father. The name of Robert Burns parents were William and Agnes Burnes though Rabbie dropped the e from Burnes. The brothers of Robert Burns were Gilbert, William and John and his sisters were Agnes, Annabella and Isobel. The maiden name of Robert Burns mother was Broun and she was born in 1732 at Maybole.
    His father was a poor farmer and initially ran a market garden, He invested in education for his sons, in particular English grammar and composition. To achieve this he leased nearby Mount Oliphant farm and then pooled financed with other farmers to hire a schoolmaster called John Murdoch to teach all their children. Like most farm children the opportunity for formal education was limited because children had to help on the farm, especially at harvest time. This hard physical work caused Robert Burns to develop the heart condition rheumatic fever which was later to claim his life at an early age.

    Robert Burns
    Robert Burns (1759-1796) is considered Scotland's greatest poet. Best known for his feeling descriptions of country life and for satires against the political and religious hypocrisy of the day, Burns wrote much of his poetry in his broad Scots dialect . The eldest child of William and Agnes Burnes (the elder Burnes spelled his name with an "e"), Burns was born in Ayrshire and lived a life of hard labor and poverty as he struggled with his father to make a series of poor farms productive. By 1786, with his father dead, and more failed farms to the family credit, Burns nearly emigrated to Jamaica. His first volume of poetry, however, was published that year to great acclaim, and Burns became the darling of Edinburgh. Further editions of poetry developed Burns' international reputation. Late in his life, supporting himself as an exciseman, Burns helped to collect and also wrote a wide-range of traditional Scottish songs. B oswell G uide

    Biography of Robert Burns - Poet of Scotland
    Scots around the world celebrate January 25 (Rabbie's birthday, born in 1759) with a Burns Night Supper, revolving around the haggis ( To A Haggis ), the whisky, and the toasts to the lassies. This has been going on since Burns' death over 200 years ago and, along with our singing of Auld Lang Syne Robert Burns grew up poor, his father a struggling Ayrshire farmer who did his best to educate his bright and lively son even though not many years could be spent at school. Still, Burns was a reader and learnt not only the ins and outs of his own language, but English as well (and some French). His English poetry is considered "okay" but not especially inspired. Rather, Robert Burns achieved immortality through his almost single-handed efforts to reinvigorate the Scottish vernacular through his wonderful poetry and his rescue of hundreds of the folk songs of Scotland.

    Fernet Branca is a bitter, aromatic spirit made from of over 40 herbs and spices, including myrrh, rhubarb, chamomile, cardamom and saffron, with a base of grape alcohol. The recipe is a secret, and was created by the young Maria Scala in 1845 in Milan. Scala's name became Maria Branca through marriage, and the product's name was born. The Fernet Branca is still produced in Milan by the company Fratelli Branca, overseen by the Branca family.

    Robert Burns
    A passionate, inspiring, forward thinking pioneer of his generation, Robert Burns , or as he is more commonly know, Burns , is regarded as the national poet of Scotland. Born in Ayrshire, in 1759, Scotland's best loved bard is famous for his political views, revolutionary behaviour, his love for the lassies and of course his world famous songs and poems including Auld Lang Syne . For more information on the works of Robert Burns click here. Although Burns lived a short life, dying at the age of 37, it was fulfilling and eventful. Starting out as a farmer then moving on to become a writer, Burns travelled throughout Scotland where he gathered inspiration for much of his work. The stunning Ayrshire scenery and the romantic setting of Dumfries helped provide the insight for compiling much of his romantic material. Today, throughout Scotland there are landmarks, museums and visitor centres all dedicated to the life and work of Robert Burns.
