Burks Genealogy & History

Burks is an English and Irish surname with several spelling variations. It is a topographical and locational surname from the Old English burh and Anglo-Saxon burg, meaning a fortress or walled settlement. It was likely used to indicate people who lived by those forts, particularly those on hills, or people who lived close to towns named for the fortifications. Burks family history begins with Ailricus de Burc, added to the Domesday Book of Suffolk in 1086. Some famous members of Burks genealogy are assassinated Tennessee State Senator Tommy Burks and his widow and successor Charlotte Burks, ENIAC co-developer Arthur Burks, and widely-traveled outfielder Ellis Burks.
