This page summarizes marriages of Burke or Bourke individuals in the parish church of Kilcolman (barony of Clanmorris) in the county of Mayo from 1807–1830. The purpose of this scan of the records is to find records of individuals within the parish of an age comparable to our John Burke (1795–1839).

Research notes:

  • The priest recorded the date of the marriage for the first couple of two or more marriages celebrated on same date. [Square brackets] around a number indicate that a marriage entry was the second or later marriage conducted on that date.
  • The earliest year for which a parish record of marriage survives for a Burke or Bourke individual in the parish of Kilcolman (Clanmorris) is 1806.
  • As was often the case in the early church records, the names of the parents were not recorded.
  • For the marriages recorded between 1806–1830, no indication was given as to whether either party lived inside or outside the parish.
  • There is a gap in the marriages recorded in the parish of Kilcolman (Clanmorris) between February 1830 and January 1835.

Next steps:

  • Review baptisms recorded in the parish register, which commence in 1835.
