Buřval Family of Bohemia and Illinois

The Burval Family of Bohemia and Illinois all descend from Jan Buřval (1675- ) and his wife, Evy of Zdechovice, Bohemia.  This genealogy is about them and their descendants who lived in the Bohemian Highlands of the Czech Republic or in America.  The earliest record of this family was found in the records of the Roman Catholic Church in Heřmanův Městec, Bohemia.  That record dated 25 August 1699 records the baptism of Vaclav, son of Jan Buřval and his wife Evy from the village of Zdechovice, Bohemia.  That records shows Jan Buřval and his wife, Evy to be the progenitor of this branch of the family. We estimate he was born about 1675.   Since the 15th centrury these Burval families lived in the Bohemian villages of Zdechovice, Janovice, Stolany, Pohled, Heřmanův Městec, Morašice, Stolany and Chrudim.
