Patrick Bourke may have been born in 1800 at Tipparary, Ireland.1 He may have been born circa 1811 at Galway, Ireland.2,3

He may have married Mary Ann Cannon, in 1842 at Tipparary.3,1 At the time of their emigration, both Patrick and Mary were illiterate. Patrick was still signed his daughter Bridget's marriage certificate with a cross 18 years later.2,4

Patrick and his wife Mary emigrated with their daughter from Cork on 9 November 1843 on the "Royal Consort". Some of the passengers on the Royal Consort seem have come from the Burhampooter which was shipwrecked - but Patrick and his family were unlikely to be amongst them.5,6 After a voyage of 103 days Patrick and his wife Mary arrived at Port Phillip, Victoria, on 18 February 1844.2,6

Patrick and Mary Ann Cannon became the parents of Michael Bourke on Wednesday, 23 June 1847 at Melbourne.7 Patrick's child an unknown person received an unknown person baptism at St. Francis' on Monday, 12 July 1847 at Melbourne . He was batised in a Roman Catholic ceremony. St. Francis' Church had only recently been constructed.7 Patrick's child an unknown person received an unknown person baptism on Monday, 17 September 1849 at Melbourne . he was baptised in a Roman Catholic ceremony.8 Patrick's child Mary received her baptism at St. Francis' on Monday, 23 June 1851 at Melbourne.9 A Patick Bourke of off Lonsdale Street West, in Melbourne, was described as being a milkman in 1856.10 Patrick Bourke was a labourer in April 1856 at Melbourne.11,12 Patrick (and presumably his spouse Mary) lived in August 1863 at Jeffcott House in Jeffcott Street, Melbourne. This was a wooden house, "with double verandah, and contains seven good rooms and kitchen". It was probably used as a boarding house.1,13,14,15

Patrick died on 2 August 1863 at Jeffcott Street, Melbourne, of liver disease which he had for 3 months..16 His body was interred at Melbourne General Cemetery on 4 August 1863 at Carlton.1,17,18,19

Typical clothing for a labourer would be cabbage-tree hat, a cloth jacket, gaudy neckerchief or tie and moleskin or drill trousers. Patrick was unlikely to have had a moustache or beard - in Melbourne in the 1830's and 1840's it indicated you had something to hide. There was a recession in the early 1840's - many men were put to work by the Government on public works.).
