FINN Family History

This is an anglicized form of an Olde Gaelic name O'Finn. The Gaelic prefix "O" means "grandson" or "male descendant (of)" and the personal name , Finn, deriving from "fionn" meaning "fair (haired)". There were three main O'Finn clans in Ireland. The first belonged to Co. Sligo where their chiefs held sway over the lands of Calry on the shore of Laigh Gill. The Co. Sligo place name, Coolavin (in Irish Cuil O'bhFinn) means "the refuge place of the O'Finns". A second sept held church lands and property in Kilcolgan, Co. Galway and the third sept belonged to the ancient territory of Oriel (Counties Armagh and Monaghan)...

William Finn born 1815 somewhere between Galway and Dublin, Ireland. Married Martha (surname unkown), born 1816 in England somewhere between Birmingham and London.
