Hi Miles

I have traced back to a Samuel Burgin b 1787 in Sheffield when he died in lancashire in 1866 the name had changed to Burgoyne: this was put doen to regional dialects and a limited number of people being able to write.. but I'm not sure how true this is but - a good way to explain the change.
