Bourne Pedigree

Extracted from the extensive pedigree written by Patrick Montague-Smith for the last edition of Burke's Landed Gentry, in which he himself appears.


Lineage  The Bournes of Nether Wyersdale traditionally migrated from the Kendal district of Westmorland, but appear in the Garstang and Cockerham parish registers from the 16th Century.  William Burne de Wyrsdall was buried at Garstang  21 Aug 1569.  In 1604/5, William Burne (who married 6 June 1599 Ellen Webster) held land in Garstang.  In 1641, Robert, John, Nicholas and Thomas Bourne refused to participate in the general protestation.  These were apparently Robert, son of William, of Wyersdale, baptised at Cockerham 20 March 1595/6; John son of Nicholas, of Nether Wyersdale, baptised Cockerham 30 June 1601; Nicholas son of Richard and Agnes, baptised Cockerham 17 October 1609; and Thomas, of Over Wyersdale.  This Nicholas was probably ancestor of the Stalmine Bournes (see below).  Robert Bourne of Lea Hall, Preston, held lands called John Bourne's, Habgills and Foxhouses in Nether Wyersdale, and Burnacre in Grisdale all in the parish of Garstang.  These he bequeathed to his nephew James Bourne of Nether Wyersdale 1717.
