Shanreagh, the death was in NZ and the informant was Michael Burke's son Patrick, only Michael and his wife Mary Calihan came here as I cannot track Julia or her husband Patrick down. Kaye

Kaye, there is a Hannah Burke listed next to Michael's entry on the passenger list of the "Chariot of Fame' in 1863. Have you tried following her through in case there was any connection to Michael?

Yes I've seen the Hannah but looking at the election roll in South Canterbury at the time there was 19 Burke's all living close to each area, probably all related but need to establish who belongs to whom lol
Julia M holds the key to my family but she is causing me problems!
Cheers

Mourne?

Looked like that to me on first sight.
Could be an interpretation of Moran perhaps.

In the 1901 census there is a 90 year old Julia Burke in Bohaun North (Ballyovey, Mayo).
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Mayo/Ballyovey/Bohaun_North/1576675/

So a birth in 1811 and a young marriage and birth of a child in 1828 seems possible. 

If you look at the townlands here
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Mayo/Ballyovey/
especially the first one (Bohaun North) there are several Burkes/Bourkes including some with Julia as daughters

Perhaps another way could be to compare the names of the children of Michael and see if there are any similar names.

There was an Irish naming pattern
http://sites.rootsweb.com/~cregan/patterns.htm

BUT being Irish they often did not follow it slavishly!

Also have a look at Mourne in the census records as the surname on the death certificate does look like Mourne. Even though the records are later in most cases family remained in ireland after parts of the family emigrated.

See if you can find any common names bewtween the townlands and names.

Yes me too and there are Mournes there in later censuses - well they are on 1901 but cannot see any in Co Mayo in 1911. Perhaps they have 'straightened' out the spelling...would need to cross check via BDM & 1911 census.
