Burke Walter

Burke was born in Limerick, Ireland and served as purser on board HMS Victory at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805 of which event he wrote an account. His gravestone in Wouldham churchyard states Lord Nelson died in his arms while Arthur Devis' painting of the death of Nelson of 1807, considered an authentic record, shows Burke supporting Nelson's pillow. Burke was one of three witnesses to Nelson's request for Hardy to kiss him. He owned Purser Place and Burke House in Wouldham materials from which were removed to Maresfield, Sussex in 1937 and combined into one new house called Purser Place there.
