BURTON Family gypsies

Hi I am currently trying to find as much information as I can on the BURTON family who lived in Warwickshire and then moved around the Dorset and Somerset areas.

My 4x Great Grandparents were Henry + Dove Burton who were King+Queen of the gypsies in Wincanton in the mid 1800's.

Anyone who can shed any light on them or who may have a family connection to them, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks in advance

Karen

The Somerset & Dorset Family History Society might be able to help.
There's a mention of Harry Burton on the Wincanton Museum Site scroll down to 1847.
