I use My Heritage mainly for my research. There are so many John Burges in the UK, but using web site of Marian Coleman (British resident) and UK birth record search as part of My Heritage program, probably it was Frome,Somerset UK.
There are several active Burge researchers in South Australia. In particular, Grant Burge, a well known wine maker in South Australia (descended from John's son, Meshach Burge. He mentions the Northern England industrial area in an article in one of his Winery Newsletters. My mother Alice Coad, born Burge, researched for many years, but never came up with John's parents names or exact birth place. The common thread relating to John Burge, is his immigration to South Australia in 1850 on the ship LOEVESTEIN, with his wife and sons and that he was a noted tailor to Queen Victoria, supplying Footman Uniforms. He had some knowledge of vine growing gained during trips to France. The Springbett family goes back into the 1700's, but John's ancestors are difficult to trace with certainty.
