SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Bourke: Very numerous: Munster, Connacht etc. Ir. de Búrca. Still more numerous as Burke, q.v.
Burke: Very numerous: in all provinces, especially Connacht. Ir. de Búrca. One of the great Anglo-Norman families, coming in the person of William de Burgo in 1171. Becoming completely gaelicised, they produced many septs: MacHugo, MacGibbon, MacRedmond etc. They settled extensively in Connacht. IF,MIF & SGG.
de Búrca: Burke, Bourke: an-líonmhar ar fud na tíre, i gConnachta ach go h-áirithe. Ceann de mhór-chlanna na Normannach: de Burgo. Sa 14 céad, gaelaíodh iad i gConnachta agus bhí tailte fairsinge ag Mac Liam Uachtair i nGaillimh agus Mac Liam Íochtair i Maigh Eo. Bhíodar i mbarúntacht Clann Liam i Luimneach, leis. Thóg na Burcaigh sloinnte Gaelacha dóibh féin, m.sh. Mac Philbín, Mac Réamoinn, Mac Giobúin. Ba liosta le lua na Burcaigh a thuill clú & cáil: Edmund Burke, polaiteoir; an Canónach Uilleac de Búrca, scoláire Gaeilge; Sir Bernard Burke, geineolaí & rl. IF & SGG.
de Búrca: fairly rare: Dublin, Galway etc. Ir. Lang. See Burke, Bourke.
Gibbons: numerous: all areas particularly Connacht. Ir. Mac Giobúin. This is an English first name but most bearers of the name are descended from Anglo-Normans: either the Burkes of Connacht or the FitzGibbons of Limerick - the latter included the White Knight, one of the three Knights of Desmond. Those of Leinster and Ulster may derive from later English settlement. IF.
Jennings: numerous: most areas, particularly Connacht where a branch of the Burkes took the Irish patronymic Mac Sheóinín (son of little John). The name is common in England where it is also a dimin. of John. IF.
Philbin: Quite numerous: Mayo-Galway etc. Ir. Mac Philibín, dimin. of Phillip: a name adopted by a branch of the Burkes in Mayo, where they became an Irish sept. Also Mac Philbin.
