In 1891, John Bernard Burke published a single volume covering the lineages of many of the leading colonial families of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the West Indies, South Africa, and other parts of the British Empire. Researchers should note that among the Canadian families covered are a number of American Loyalist families, including the Stocktons of New Jersey, Macnab and Robinson of Virginia, Bayard of New York, and Coffin and Jones of Massachusetts. In 1895, the Burkes published a second volume of colonial lineages prepared by John Bernard Burke and edited by Ashworth P. Burke. The two volumes are reprinted here as one, complete with 120 coats of arms and an index of names and addresses of all persons referred to in the pedigrees, under the title A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Colonial Gentry.
