Yorke Family History


The names Yorke and York in Ireland are usually of immigrant origin having been brought into the Province of Ulster by settlers who arrived from England, especially during the seventeenth century. These names are also an anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac Conchearcha Sept name, meaning 'hound of Cearc'.

A Sept or Clan is a collective term describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors had a common surname and all inhabited the same lands.
