Biographical History

Sir James Bland Burges, as author, barrister, member of parliament and Under-Secretary of State at the Foreign Office corresponded with many men of note in literary and political circles. His family connections were wide. His mother was the daughter of James, 12th Lord Somerville. Through his first wife, Elizabeth Noel, daughter of Edward, 1st Viscount Wentworth, he was related to the Noel family. His second wife, Anne, was daughter of Lieutenant-Colonel Montolieu, Baron de St. Hippolyte. His third marriage, to Lady Margaret Fordyce daughter of James, 5th Earl of Balcarres, connected him to the Lindsay family. Sir James's sister Frances married James Roper Head. Correspondence of Sir James with many members of these five families is described in section A.

In 1821 Burges acquired the estate of his friend John Lamb, and assumed the name of Sir James Lamb. A pedigree of the Burges family is in Burke's Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage (1925 edition, under Lamb).
