The Burgamy family is of French descent. There were 2 brothers, John and William, who came to America from France before the American Revolution as Spies, under General Elija Clarke. Both were captured by the British at the siege of Augusta, Ga. September, 1780.
William succeeded in making his escape. John and 28 other American soldiers were executed by the British in a very cruel manner.
Reference: "The History of Georgia". by Captain Hugh McCall, Vol. 11 chapter X1, pages 480 - 491. Also see "The History of South Carolina in the Revolution 1775-1780, chapter XXX111, pages 737 - John Burgamy by Edward McCrady.
All the Burgamies in America are descended from William Burgamy, for there is a tradition in the family that after the American Revolution, William Burgamy was the only one of the name left in America.
