and Irish family
WHY I AM
INTERESTED IN THIS FAMILY
wife's maternal grandfather,
Patrick Michael Burke (1872-1953) was born on a farm in Aghamore, Co.
Mayo. He emigrated to England in the 1890's, married in Bradford, had
daughters and left the family after WW1. Though he lived and died in
Bradford, the family knew little about him. In 2005, after some
research, we located his birthplace and family (parents Peter Burke and Anne
and during a visit in
2009 we met three cousins. Thanks to Paul Burke, Margaret Rafferty and Paul Rogers for their interest and help. This web page is dedicated to trying to
learn more about this family.
Today the Burke Farm is owned
by Paul Burke, a descendant of the Burkes who have
farmed here since at least the
1850's. The Griffith's Valuation tax records show a Bridget Burke being
tenant in 1856 on the very same land as the current farm. Very likely
she is the widowed mother of Peter Burke who married Anne Hamrogue. The
farm is in the Parish of Aghamore and in the townlands of Casheltourly
and Mountain Common, Co. Mayo.
Peter and Anne had their first child in 1861 and if we assume they were
in their early twenties at that time then they would have been born in
the late 1830's. They would have married around 1860 or before. They
had seven children and the farm continued in the
hands of their 6th child, Peter Burke who married Norah Kenny.

2. Widow Burke farm in Bruff, 1835
Click on the image to enlarge.
This 1835 map of the
townland of Bruff appeared in an early 2011 edition of the local parish magazine.
Paul Rogers writes that, "Bruff and other townlands formed part of
Viscount Dillon's huge estate - all of the estate was mapped in
preparation for striping out. New tenants were allocated plots in
many cases. The maps, which are coloured to show the different land
qualities, are in the National Library Archives, Dublin."
"Note that plots 1 to 9 in Bruff were listed as follows: The
School; Widow Burke; Thomas Fleming; Anthony Duffy; John Scarry;
Dominick Scarry; Barth Fleming; James Robbinson and Mathew Leech."
"By the time of the 1856 Griffith's Valuation (see below and
including the different 1856 numbering of the lots) the following
persons were linked with the plots; Michael Traverse ; Michael Coen
; Thomas Fleming , Anthony Duffy , Rev. Richard Prendergast
, Dominick Scarry , John Fleming  and John Leech ."
Source: The above text and image are from Paul Rogers, via email, Mar 2011.
that lot 2 in the 1835 map is lot 3 in the 1856 map. The "Widow Burke"
farm in 1835 was in the hands of Michael Coen in 1856 (see below). Did
Michael Coen marry the widow Burke or a daughter of widow Burke?
Burke writes, "One Scarry place had become occupied by a clergyman
while the other had expanded with the addition of Robbinsons. Could a
Robinson-Burke marriage have taken place later? Is this too far
fetched? Could the Burke woman named Bridget in Mountain Common and
Casheltourly (which, like Aghamore, were not townlands which formed
part of Viscount Dillon's estate) be the Widow Burke of 1835?"
In July 2019, Paul Lavin of Cheshire, UK, wrote via an email that, "The
Michael Coen in the 1856 Griffiths Valuation who is mentioned in your
research is my grandmother's grandfather. He died in 1891 and his death
was registered by his widow, Bridget. Now, I'm pretty sure that his
wife was Bridget McNicholas (McNicklas) and they were married in 1846
because there is an extract from the 1851 census which notes their
marriage year and the fact that they lived in Bruff in 1851. How that
might explain his taking over of the land of Widow Burke, I'm not sure,
but I don't think he married her or her daughters."
3. BRIDGET BURKE and the farm in 1856 - GRIFFITH'S VALUATION
Click on the map to enlarge.
Griffiths Valuation of 1856 has Bridget Burke living on the same land
as the current Burke farm in Aghamore. It is a reasonable
supposition that Bridget is the widowed mother of Peter Burke who
married Anne Hamrogue. Her maiden name is unknown.
map, showing part of Aghamore, was used in 1856 by the Griffith's Valuation to
identify tenants and their farm plots. The ordnance maps used by
Griffiths were made between 1833 and 1844. Three townlands are shown:
On the upper left is Bruff with Casheltourly to the right and Mountain
Common below. Bridget Burke was the tenant of the two yellow coloured
plots: #5 in Casheltourly and #1 in Mountain Common. She had a house
and office in #3 Mountain Common (yellow stripes) but no land rights.
The fact that Bridget Burke was a tenant in 1856 on the same land that Peter
Burke and Anne Hamrogue farmed, and is still the Burke farm today,
strongly suggests that Bridget was the widowed mother of Peter. Her
maiden name is unknown. In the mid 20th C
the Burke family added the two plots coloured with red lines.
The results in the Griffith's Evaluation for Bridget Burke, Parish of Aghamore, Poor Law Union of Swineford, Barony of Costello,
County Mayo are below.

at AskAboutIreland - To search, enter Burke, Bridget and Mayo and
scroll down to the five Aghamore results (two are repeats). The map
links on the right take you to the 1830's map but you have to
navigate to find the townlands. It is tricky. The area is north and
Ballyhaunis and south of Swinford. Find the middle 'A' in the word
Aghamore and you will have it.
MORE RESEARCH is needed to find Bridget's maiden name and the name
of her husband. How long have Burke's been tenants/owners on this
land? The Domvile and other estate records referred to at the Connacht Landed Estates project
and held at the National Library of Ireland in Dublin may provide information. In particular,

4. ANNE HAMROGUE
Very little is known about Anne Hamrogue. Anne's surname is variously spelled
Hamrogue, Hamrock and other similar variations. A search of these two
surnames for County Mayo in the Griffith's Valuation shows Hamrogue in
Ballinrobe and Hamrock in Annagh.
Peter Burke and Ann Hamrock were married in Ballyhaunis
Church on 7th February
1857 with witnesses Dan Feely and Miss Blackwell. [Paul Rogers found this from a database at South Mayo Family Heritage Centre]. Paul writes that, "We can safely conclude that Ann was one of the Hamrock people listed in Griffith's
Valuation for the townland of Leo in the parish of Annagh."
Anne is in the 1901 census as a widow
and age 50 which would give a birth year of 1851, a little late to have
a daughter in 1861. Census ages are unreliable so not much value is put
on this data. Timothy Halloran is a nephew or a grand son and might be
a good clue.
At the baptism of Anne's first son, Henry Burke [12 Aug 1869 - see the
list below] a Henry Hamrogue is a sponsor (God father) who is likely
the father or brother of Anne.
Also a Stephen Hamrock and wife
Catherine Cox have a child baptised on 29 Oct 1865 [see below] and
Stephen could easily be a brother of Anne's. Paul Rogers writes that "This Stephen Hamrock would have married into the Cox place in the townland of Annagh in Aghamore parish."
There is this
collection of Hamrogue information on the web.

OTHER HAMROGUE INFO
"My maternal grandfather was Stephen Hamrock of Leo (Leow), County Mayo
and I have traced that Hamrock land rental into the 1830's...there are
variations in the spelling of the name - Hambrock and Hamrick and I
have also found connections into County Roscommon...There were several
Hamrogue families in the Ballyhaunis area but I can not connect them
directly with my Hamrock family"

BURKE BAPTISMS from the AGHAMORE CHURCH REGISTERS
This surviving baptism register dates from 2 Feb
30 Dec 1883.
The register dating before 1864 was apparently burned when the priest
died of serious illness and it was felt the register might spread the
contagion. This LDS film # 1279206 [Parochial registers, Diocese
of Tuam, Parish of Aghamore, item 13] is of an undated transcription of
the "old register" and it states that the original register "was
almost indecipherable in some parts owing to the wretched scrawl in
some of the entries and the fact that the ink on others had almost
completely faded, and besides the Register was falling to pieces." A
transcription of the same film is online at EastMayo.org.
Below are all references to Burke (Bourke) in Aghamore. It is possible
that some of these are related to Peter Burke and are recorded here to
assist in Burke research. The baptisms of the children of Peter Burke and

6. BURKE MARRIAGES from the AGHAMORE
The surviving marriage register dates from 1 Sept 1864 to
24 June 1882. The LDS film
# 926214 [item 2] is
of the actual register with handwriting that is very difficult to decifer
with confidence. The marriage of Peter Burke and
Anne Hamrogue is not here as they likely married around 1859 or 1860
considering their first child was born in 1861. A
film is online at EastMayo.org.
Below are all references to Burke (Bourke) marriages in Aghamore and
are recorded here to
assist in research. The marriages are a combination of those on
Eastmayo.org with edits that I have made having also examined the film.

James Burke (sometimes Bourke) was born around 1850. His parents
Thomas Burke and Catherine Hoster. (I can't go any further back
Burkes.) Hoster is a somewhat unusual name. You can find my
tree on Ancestry.com under her name. James' siblings that I know
Catherine, Bridget, and Michael." Honoria Burke or Bourke, daughter of James Burke and
Ellen Ganley came to the USA twice and settled down before
1910 in NJ.
