    • James Burnside was a Captain under Col. Edghill ,of the South Carolinian Royalists. In the latter days of the war both father and son-in-law assessed the futility of their efforts and declared the war was lost for the British. Taking their families and belongings they fled to the island of Jamaica, there the British government compensated their losses by giving them small indigo plantations.

      The Burnsides were not content in Jamaica. James appealed to his brothers to receive amnesty for him and his family. In 1786, James, Margaret and their three daughters returned to South Carolina. There four sons were born to them.On James death, his widow and her four sons migrated to Indiana, after freeing all their slaves.
