(?) Burke

M, d. circa 1840
Last Edited10 Apr 2015
     (?) Burke The New Orleans Passenger Lists for 23 Dec 1844 list a family of 4 named "Dierke". The oldest was a Henry born in c 1826, then Catherine born c 1830, John born c 1836 and Herman born c 1840. The ages are fairly close what we think would be the ages of Henry and Herman in 1844. They came aboard the Astracan from Bremin, Germany. In 1900, Henry indicated that he came to the U.S. about 1845. Other records indicate that he entered through New Orleans. A search of he New Orleans passenger lists during the period 1840-1850 do not contain a Henry or Heinrich Burke Could this Dierke really be our family Burke? Custom officials were notorious for changing foreign names to something that made more sense to them and could Dierke sound like Burke? Certainly a reach but could it be? Perhaps we will never know?1,2 Herman Daniel Burke died when Harry Eugene Burke was 10 years old and left his children little of his heritage. His father's name has not been carried down. If the European traditions for naming sons were fallowed, it most certainly would have been both Herman and Henry's oldest son's name. However, Herman's oldest son was named Harry after himself and Henry named his oldest son Edward. As Henry was older it is possible that the father's name was Edward but we may never know. The fallowing essay was written by Herman's grandson to his daughter-in-law.

"A FAMILY ORIGIN" as written by H.E. Burke, Jr.:

"Great grandfather Herman is supposed to have come from Hanover Germany when he was about seven. It must have been some trip for a kid that age. Imagine crossing the Atlantic in a sail boat. Particularly after his father and older brothers had been killed and his mother recently dead. Probably he came with a brother who had not been killed. The story sounds as if he had at least four brothers. Of course he spoke German and, according to grandpa (H.E. Burke, Sr.), never spoke very good English.

Because he came from Germany, many of the family feel that the name cannot be Irish. However, this is not necessarily true. The Irish were always great for fighting the English and would join up in droves with anyone who would lead the way. There were Irish brigades under Napoleon and I dare say a few fighting with the Germans against Marlborough. Some of these soldiers probably stayed on the continent and could easily have settled in Hanover.

However, many Burkes in the US are of direct Irish extraction but I have observed a number of other roots from all over Europe.

For Instance:
Irish           Burke
French          Bourque
Polish           Burkowitz(son of)
Russian           Burkovsky(son of)
Serbian           Burkovici(son of)
Jewish           Birk
Turkish          Burk

I suspect that in spite of a phonetic similarity that these names originated from a number of different root words. I have identified at least three to my satisfaction:
Burg, borg, berg German for mountain
Bejörke Old Norse for Birch tree
Burko Sheepskin Jacket Slav?

Take your pick. Because blue eyes run so strongly in the family, and that is supposed to be a recessive trait, I would opt for a Norse root myself. But that is pretty tenuous.

Actually as people move around from country to country, the phonetics of a particular word will undergo many changes. Then when an individual settles down in a new environment he will very often take a local name which is phonetically close to his own. In this way a name can undergo profound changes and ultimately sound like something it was not originally.

Perhaps the real root is: Berserk! (Old Norse)

The Irish are great at publishing family trees and I have enclosed one such listing a few of the famous of that name. They sell these to gullible Americans in search of a phony past. Of course there were a few famous Burkes. Burke and Fox where two of the English members of parliament who did the most for the Colonys before the Revolutionary War.

At the same time I have run into a few disreputable Burkes from time to time. According to Winston Churchill, one Burke emasculated a grandson of William the Conqueror. (The operation was not a success as the poor fellow died.) And then Quisling's Lt. in Norway during the German occupation was named Burke. This didn't do the name Burke much good in Norway. Then, too, there was a well know body snatcher in Scotland who became impatient standing around cold grave yards at night. As a result, 'to burke' is a verb meaning to smother to death!" -
By Harry Eugene Burke Jr.3 Herman's father died circa 1840 at The Kindom of Hanover, Germany; His wife died shortly there after!4

Michael Blocker I1

Last Edited7 Apr 2015
     Michael Blocker I married Elizabeth (?) circa 1700.2 Michael Blocker I immigrated circa 1733 to Bladen County, North Carolina; "Nearly all of the first wave of land seekers to the Cape Fear area in the 1730's and 1740's came from Pennsylvania". Whether Michael was a member of one of these groups is unknown. However, "his name was not on the ships' lists of immigrants in Rupp's Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants in Pennsylvania, 1727-1776; nor is it among the lists of Strassburger's Pennsylvania German Pioneers, 1727-1775. Neither was his name in the surviving lists of the Moravians or Palatines in the above books; nor was his name found in the Salzburg Colony at Ebenezer, Georgia, in 1734; nor was it in the Colonial Records of Georgia, nor in Coulter and Saye's List of the Early Settles of Georgia; nor was it to be found in Hotten's List of Emigrants to America, 1600-1700. It is possible there was some connection in Virginia. Greer's Early Virginia Immigrants, 1623-1666, names an Eliza Blocker and an Elizabeth Blocker as being in James City County in 1638 and 1649. And it is possible that he entered a Wilmington instead of Philadelphia".3 On 13 April 1734 Michael Blocker I patented 640 acres on the east side of the Cape Fear River, three miles above the mouth of Rockfish Creek and five miles south of the present city of Fayetteville. This patent was issued 9 September 1735. He was granted or patented 300 acres <1735> which was located on the Cape Fear across from the present city of Fayetteville then in Bladen County. In 1745, Michael Blocker was appointed road commissioner in Bladen County for the area from Bartram's Ferry up to the head of the river. He died before 1753 in Bladen County.1
