Alliterations of Van Borculo

This page only begins to illustrate how many legitimate phonetic variations there are of "Van Borculo", because this list identifies just the different spellings found during research. Beware, there are numerous legitimate phonetic variations not included here. If you're not yet attuned to the particular spelling tendencies, you may at least need to be aware of variations similar to these which will demand your consideration and further investigation. The size of this list should be scary enough for anyone.

Besides legitimate phonetic variations, researchers have had to endure the problem of spelling aberrations, such as "Burgiloe", and misspellings, such as "Bartow", or "Barlow", which are actual surnames with unrelated ethnic origins. Whereas census takers may misspell a name badly, there is also the problem of missreading a surname from the census, by people compiling indexes(as WPA workers in 1930's), not to forget those who, while performing tedious typing work, have unintentionally produced even more "creative" variations for us to decipher.

NOTE- Bantaloe, Barniclow, and Barthlow/Bartholow are actual surname lines whose immigrant ancestors appear to have settled in Maryland before 1800. These lone occurrences involved someone's judgment errors in interpreting colonial handwriting. Buckalew and Buckelew also have New Jersey origins in the mid-1700's and have created some problems with cross-over spellings similar to some of our variations, like Barkalew. But, they are not related and Barkalew and Barkelew surnames have not been traceable to Van Borculo lines. Obviously, Barkley, Barlow, Bartow, Bartron, Buckley and Butler are familiar surnames, mostly English in origin, and are, of course, unrelated.
