The Burke Baronetcy, of Glinsk in the County of Galway, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 2 August 1628 for Ulick Bourke. The third Baronet was a politician. The title became extinct on the death of the thirteenth Baronet in 1909. Two of his younger brothers both gained distinction. Thomas Henry Burke was Permanent Under-Secretary at the Irish Office for many years while Augustus Nicholas Burke was an artist.
The Burke Baronetcy, of Marble Hill in the County of Galway, was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 5 December 1797 for Thomas Burke. He raised an infantry regiment at his own expense during the Napoleonic Wars. The second and third Baronets both sat as Members of Parliament for County Galway. The fifth Baronet served as High Sheriff of County Galway in 1883. The seventh Baronet was a Deputy Lieutenant of County Galway. Three other members of the family may also be mentioned. Charles Granby Burke (1814–1898), second son of the second Baronet, was Master of the Court of Common Pleas in Ireland from 1852 to 1882. James Henry Burke (1816–1882), third son of the second Baronet, was a Major-General in the Bombay Engineers.
