The Buřival Family of Lanškroun and Nebraska
The Burival Family of Lanškroun and Nebraska all descend from Frantisek Buřival (c1775-) of Chlumec nad Cidlnou. All the records on this family have been obtained from Lanškroun Church records. The Lanškroun records usually, but not always, show the Buřval name spelled with an i following the ř, so we have spelled the surname of all members of this branch of the family as Buřival The earliest Buřival record we have found in Lanškroun is that of Jiří Buřival (1800-1866) of Chlumec nad Cidlinou marrying Karolina Koberle of Lanškroun in 1822. This suggests that Jiří removed from Chlumec nad Cidlinou to Lanškroun sometime before 1822. He raised his family and remained in Lanškroun until his death in 1866. The records also show Jiři's father as Frantisek Burival of Chlumec nad Cidlinou. It is possible this branch of the family is connected to the Buřval Family of Bohemia. However, that connection has not been found.
