Here are all the McBurnetts that I've run across, e.g. via casual searches on the web. Let me know if you're related and want to be added. And let me know how *you* pronounce the name - emphasis on the first syllable or the second? I put it on the second.
I don't mean to invade anyone's privacy, so I don't publish information on living people other than links to their own web pages. But I'll drop those also if you ask.
Census records: according to a 1990 census study of names the last name "McBurnett" is used by about 0.0002% of the United States population. There were about 600 McBurnetts in the US. That ranked number 37411 among last names. 83% of people have last names that are more common.
Genealogy: So far, all the McBurnetts I know are descended from Daniel McBurnett, who died on 3 Mar 1793 in Camden Co, Georgia. And I know of only two isolated records of the name McBurnett or Mac Burnett in Britain.

On my mother's side, I also have a particularly interesting line going back to the Spaldings of Ashintully, Scotland allegedly dating back to Perthshire, Scotland in the 1500's and Berwick in 1318.
I wrote a program in perl (named "prtged" for the time being) that prints really detailed ancestry timeline charts. For example, see timelines for 387 of my direct ancestors on a single sheet of paper (with details inevitably lost as you get further back in time): 400-year Ancestry chart for Neal McBurnett. Note the scale of centuries at the bottom.
