I've removed "Burton"[edit]

The "Burt" in Burton does not have the same origin as the ...bert (bright) element discussed in this article. The Burt in Burton is in google scholar and all sources I can find, including analysis of Burton, spelled earlier as Borton, Bortone, in the Domesday book of current towns called Burton (the source of the surname) indicate that "Bur" derives from Burg, Burgh, Bourough, etc meaning a fortified area, with "...tun"/"...ton, being a precursor to current spelling of town (enclosure).Explainador (talk) 01:17, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
