   Burleigh is the more modern form of the name.

   The three main progenitors detailed in the book are: Giles Burley of Ipswich, Mass; John Burley of Union, Conn., and Isaac Burley of Standing Stone, Penn.

   With regard to Giles, "he left wife, Elizabeth, and children, Andrew, James, Giles, and perhaps John, the youngest, who probably died before his father."

   John came from England with Gov. Belcher when about 14 years of age, probably about 1708, m. Miriam, dau. of Nathaniel and Anna Fuller. The children of John and Miriam were John, Jr.; Sarah, Josiah, Samuel, Asaph, and Alethea.

   Isaac went from New Jersey in 1766 to Standing Stone, now Huntington in the Juniata valley, thence a few years afterward he proceeded further up the valley, then the Indian country, to Sinking Valley, then Bedford now Blair county, where he settled and died. Tradition says that he went to New Jersey from the New England states; if this be true he may have been a descendant of the Norwich, Conn., families, and they descended from John Burley, who was a passenger for New England in the ship
Blessing in 1635.  His children were: Isaac, Jr., Joseph, John, Jacob, Joshua, Jacob (2), John (2), Joseph (2), James, Samuel, Emanuel, George, Joseph (3), Philip, Joseph (4), Elizabeth, William, and Margaret.
