Families covered: Burroughes of Burlingham Hall, Burroughes of Long Stratton, Burroughes of Wymondham

(1) Much of what is below was first shown on 24.06.14 within BZmisc19 using Commoners. It was moved here after a contributor (AG, 09.03.24) kindly drew our attention to the fact that BLG1937 shows things differently, as reported below. BLG1937 also provides more information than Commoners, enabling us to expand what we had on the family sufficiently to it being worthy of a page on its own.
(2) Commoners reports sthat "The family of Burroughes, of old standing in Norfolk, has been extensive land owners in that and the neighbouring county of Suffolk." Commoners identifies the arms of this family as "Arg. two chevrons between three chaplets vert, quartering Negus and Burkin". BLG1937 identifies them as "Per chevron sa. and arg., a chevron per chevron between in chief two chaplets and in base a crescent all countercharged".
