Burke Genealogy & History

Burke family history dates back to 12th-century Ireland. It comes from the Old English "burh," which in turn comes from the Old German "burg," which means "fortification". The name, therefore, describes the location of Burke ancestors. Other variations on the name include de Burgh, Burgh, Bourke, Burk, Bourk, and Gillick; one Canadian version is spelled Bourque. Burke genealogy includes the 18th-century British politician and philosopher Edmund Burke; 20th-century Admiral Arleigh Burke; and Jeffery Burke, one of the first passengers to the British colonies. Burke, Virginia, is named after Silas Burke, a 19th-century politician.
