Hi, My name's Stuart Burke Terson. On this page I hope to be able link other families to mine. So far I've got back to about 1750 with the Terson's coming from France and the Burke's coming from Ireland until the Family moved to Dover, Kent about 1820. This line of the family almost died out as my grandfather was the last Terson left but he had two boys and in turn my Father had two boys and my Uncle has three, and now I myself have a four year old son and a one year old daughter.
If you wish to leave messages please use the guestbook and i will get back to you asap.
