GENEALOGICAL AND HERALDIC HISTORY OF THE COLONIAL GENTRY VOLUMES 1 AND 2 by Sir Bernard Burke (Ref: 016) The   preface   of   this   book   states   the   following;      The   Colonies   form   such   an   important portion   of   our   Empire   that   a   history   of   the   leading   families,   and   their   connection   with   the mother   country,   cannot   fail   to   be   of   interest.   The   preparation   of   this   work   has   already been   the   means   of   bringing   together   kinsfolk   from   both   sides   of   the   globe,   and   I   trust that   the   result   of   my   labours   may   still   further   tend   to   promote   that   family   love   and   unity which   has   always   been   the   characteristic   trait   of   our   race.   These   volumes   contain details of hundreds families throughout the world. £5.00 including UK Postage       £6.50 including Overseas Postage
