Hi there,

My gg grandmother was Clara Scrymgeour Burt, born at Carrisbrook Castle, Isle of Wight in 1828.  Her father was William Burt, b. 1804, who was apparently the gardener/caretaker there.  William and his wife Helen Scrymgeour Burt, raised Clara and her siblings in Newport/Ride, Isle of Wight.  Siblings:  Eliza, b. 1826 - John, b. 1827 - Anne, b. 1833 - Sarah, b. 1835 - Emma, b. 1836 - Frederick, b. 1838 - William Abercrombie, b. 1840.  Many of the siblings moved to the NYC/Long Island area, one married Polydore Barnes, the publisher, and most of them had either Scrymgeour or Abercrombie for their middle name, too.  If any of this looks familiar please drop me a note!
