The Burke family  produced many septs (clans) including  MacHugo, MacGibbon, and  MacRedmond .They settled extensively in the western Irish province of Connacht, although families are also found in Cork and Tipperary.Amongst the many interesting name holders was Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797), the leading English statesmen of his day, whilst one of the first recorded passengers to the new American colonies was Jeffery Burke, who sailed on the sloop "True Friendship" from Antigua to Virginia in 1679. Today there are 120,000 people with the last name Burke living in The United States.
