No records for a George Burke in N.S.W apart from one 1888, have investigated this one although similar birth date his family originated from Roscommon, parents were John Burke and Catherine Donahue and was born in Parramatta, N.S.W and died Cooma another George Burke, Miner died in Northern N.S.W but much older than my great great grandfather, we are thinking he died elsewhere and not in Australia hence why we started searching Ireland to see if he returned to Wexford.
The case was in Ireland but worded my statement wrong I meant me being in Australia how can I find out more to see if this was him

On a search thru ancestry trying to trace George's movements.
As no records apart from the birth certificates mention George, I was wondering if he returned to Ireland as his daughter Mary Ellen was born in 1887 in the benevolent asylum in Newcastle N.S.W. in 1887, a hospital for destitute woman and children. Ran a search to see if I could find any trace of a George Burke and this came up as I haven't been able to find any emigration records for George that I have been able to find apart from a crew list on a ship called Kentish tar that docked regularly in Newcastle around the time, this ship is British registered with a George Burke as a crew member. Ran thru ancestry on legal and court proceedings bought this hint, the crews came from the same search style but choosing crew lists as he is listed as a Mariner on his marriage certificate

More information has since been found
Ellen Mahony (Clare, Ireland) married George Burke (New Ross, Ireland) a mariner in Newcastle N.S.W in 1885 had 2 children William Henry Burke 1886 and Mary Ellen Burke 1887 and no further records for George has been found.
Ellen gave birth to Mary Ellen at the benevolent asylum in Newcastle.
Mary Ellen gave birth to Noel Andrew Burke (my grandfather) in 1904 and Noel was then raised by Ellen, this is in line with the previous posts.
Noel was shown as a brother to William Henry Burke (his Uncle) on the obituary notice when William died from injuries occurred in a railway shunting accident in Newcastle in 1922, In Ellen's will he is listed as her grandson and resided with Ellen till she passed in 1935 in Bolton st
Ellen Mahony's parents were John Mahony and Catherine Shea, she was born in Clare Ireland and is buried at Sandgate cemetery in Newcastle with her Sister Mary Allen nee Mahony still attempting to trace when she and Mary emigrated to Australia

Thank you Wexford, i find Irish records so hard to find and work out, is there a way to find out if this hint of ancestry is my great grandfather George or another person of the same name.
There's a reference to a George Burke in Ireland, Petty sessions Court Registers 1818 to 1919.
Dated 10th October 1914 in Newtonberry, Wexford as a witness on a Noxious Weed case being in Australia I'm not sure how to access them if they are available

My Great grandfather George Burke b 1857 , New Ross,  Wexford was the some of William Burke and Ellen Doherty.
Seeking information about the family according to the Marriage certificate of George he was a Mariner,  married Ellen Mahony in Newcastle N.S.W in 1885.
I have found the marriage of William and Ellen in Ferns, Wexford in 1856 but unable to trace any further information about them or George.
George Burke seems to disappear from records after the birth of my great grandmother Mary Ellen in 1887 at the benevolent asylum in Newcastle N.S.W

sorry for the length o time in getting back to you about noel andrew burke of bolton st newcastle, the information is both from family and a census which i cant remember the date of it showed only his grandmother ellen as the only other resident at that address, this was confirmed by the last of my grandfathers brothers last week
ellen's husband was a george burke unfortunately i have no further information about george as the aunty who had all the information passed away a couple of years ago before i started looking it all up

the ellen burke who resided at bolton st newcastle who was my great grandmother had a maiden name of mahony and was the daughter of john mahony and elllen considine married in bathurst district. had two children william burke 1885-1921 and mary ellen 1887-1961
ellen passed away in 1935
the records show that an noel andrew burke also resided at the address in 1920s he was my grandfather and was the son of mary ellen his father was unknown
mary ellen moved to sydney and married in balmain and had five other children to james jackson
