My ancestor, Robert Burges was a nailmaker in Calton in the 1820s and 1830s. He married Margaret Marshall in 1826 at Calton. With children, Robert and Duncan, they migrated to Sydney, Australia in 1838 as assisted immigrants. Allegations were made in an 1838 diary that his real name may have been Duncan or Archibald Crawford and he migrated under the alias Robert Burges with Robert Burges' wife.
