About Burke’s Peerage
Often referred to as the ‘aristocracy bible’, Burke’s Peerage & Baronetage and Burke’s Landed Gentry have, for over 175 years, recorded detailed genealogical information on over 15,000 families (some going back over 1000 years), whose members shaped the history and evolution of Britain, Ireland and North America.
In addition to detailed lineages of peers, knights and landed gentry, over 5,000 entries
relate to current personalities - actors, politicians, artists, industrialists, architects, musicians - including Lord Goldsmith, the Attorney General; Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, the chef; Sir Paul Macartney; Baron [Norman] Foster, the architect; Dame Judi Dench; Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the explorer.
There are detailed lineages of the kings and queens who ruled England and Scotland from the 9th century up to now, and of 42 US presidents and 33 UK prime ministers. But Burke's Peerage Online is much more than a database of family tree data: there are detailed - and witty - essays on Britain's 18th and 19th century prime ministers and on US Presidents; an essay in praise and support of the UK honours system; a guide to castles and stately homes in the British Isles; essays on artists and craftsmen; and many many more fascinating articles. With many family records in Burke's containing hundreds of names it may not be as difficult as you imagine finding you have some connection to British Royalty or the US Presidency; Thomas Jefferson's entry lists over 2,500 descendants and that for George Washington lists over 1,000. An article on the site describes in detail how one researcher was able to confirm a connection to Edward III.
