Firstly, what was the quote for the previous posting from ?
"Gedge's History speaks of Mickleburgh as the Great-Fort; it stood on the edge of the Highlands overlooking the sea"
Now you mention:
"As to Gedges History I am not sure what is behind their explanation, except that in Tudor times Mickle meant great or large, so some references suggest and burgh means borough or town but I have not seen the two words being put into one word apart from in our surname."
So now I am confused - which is it ? It was the only reason I mentioned my knowledge that the name may be from Scottish origin.
If Francis Mickleburgh of Thurlton, Norfolk disclaimed arms in 1664 - does it not therefore follow that there must have been a coat of arms for Mickleburgh? And have you been searching English records or have you been searching Scottish too ? Just a thought ? I really don't understand this whole coat of arms thing, but so I guess I am rather open minded about it, but I too am a bit cynical about paying for a supposed Mickleburgh coat of arms and history. As Mickleburgh's I'd much rather we work together to find the truth.
