Burke, John,

1787–1848, Irish genealogist. He issued (1826) A Genealogical and Heraldic Dictionary of the Peerage and Baronetage of the United Kingdom. He published the guide irregularly until 1847, after which it became an annual, commonly called Burke's Peerage. It was edited from 1847 to 1892 by his son, Sir John Bernard Burke, 1814–92, who was knighted (1854) and appointed (1855) keeper of the state papers in Ireland. As a companion to Burke's Peerage, he established the regular publication of another work begun by his father, commonly called Burke's Landed Gentry. His other works include The Romance of the Aristocracy (1855) and Vicissitudes of Families (1859–63).
