Glass is from Glas, meaning green or grey in Gaelic.

Purcell is from the French "pourcel" through the Normans and means "little pig". Who knows in what context the name was given. In Scotland, which sounds like purse was often used as a translation for MacSporran.

Prior is usually Anglo Norman in origin, it is from the office in the abbey that was second to the Abbot. Your ancestor may not have been a prior but someone who was employed by the Prior or may have the satirical name for some who given the name by neighbours and friends. In Cavan and Leietrim it was prorbalbly from MacPhriora an Gaelic Irish version of the name

not to mention Annis
have researched in Enniskillen for several years and could find no Annis nor Ennis families in County Fermanagh. Peader Livingstone of Broomfield Parochical House, Castleblayney, Ireland (County Monaghan) wrote extensive published histories (700 pages each) of County Monaghan and County Fermanagh from BC to 1980. I corresponded with this elderly gentleman who insisted no Annis nor Ennis family name was recorded on ANY pre 1700 record in County Fermanagh. He wrote that it was common for a young man to say he was born in an English stronghold (as Enniskillen was at that time) when he entered an English controlled colony such as the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It would have been foolhardy to portray ones self as an enemy. Not only that, Cromwell forced ship loads of young Irish soldiers to be shipped to the colonies so they wouldn't continue to cause trouble.

I have never heard of the Halfpenny surname before but I have just done a little research on it. Despite the fact that a small English Halfpenny Planter family probably settled in the east of Ireland in the 17th century, it seems that the majority of Halfpennys in the east of Ireland are descendants of the native Gaelic Irish O'hAilpin family who adopted Halfpenny as the Anglicised version of their surname in the years following the 17th century Plantations in Ireland. In the west of Ireland, the O'hAilpin surname was usually Anglicised as Halpin.

In post #163 I was discussing the Irish surname McAteer and the Scottish surname McIntyre and the intermingling of these 2 surnames. In a similar vain, McArthur is a Scottish surname originating in Argyll. The McArthurs are said to be related to the Campbells of Argyll. During the 17th century Scottish Plantation of Ulster a number of McArthurs settled in Ulster. The McArthur surname is often spelt McCarter in Ulster - this is how an Irishman would pronounce the McArthur surname! However, it seems that a few of the Scottish Protestant McArthur/McCarter Planters in Ulster adopted the native Irish McAteer surname. Moreover, in post #163 I said it appears that most of the 19th century Irish McAteer immigrants to Scotland had their surnames recorded correctly as McAteer. However, there is some evidence that a few of the 19th century Irish McAteer immigrants to Scotland had their surnames recorded incorrectly as the Scottish surname McArthur.

The native Irish McGuinness (sometimes spelt McGinness or Magennis) surname originates in County Down in southeast Ulster and the surname is commonly found throughout Ulster. McInnes is an unrelated Scottish surname. It seems that a few Scottish Protestant McInnes Planters settled in Ulster in the 17th century and most of them adopted the native Irish McGuinness/Magennis surname. It also seems likely that a few of the 19th century Irish McGuinness immigrants to Scotland would have had their surnames recorded in the Scottish form of McInnes.

In the same way, I am sure there has also been some intermingling of the Irish surname Ennis and the Scottish surname Innes.

My great3 grandfather was born in Sutherlandshire in the 1790s. His given name was Sullivan Keith. This given name is also found in his mother's Ross family. I also found McEarthy (var. of McCarthy?) families in Caithness in the 1700s. Both McCarthy and Sullivan names are found mainly in the Southwest of Ireland. Does anyone have ideas as to how these obviously Irish surnames appear in the Northeast of Scotland before the famine?

Other than possibily mariners who decided to stay on they may have been families that did seasonal work on farms and then stayed.

My Maternal great grandparents Elizabeth and Patrick Cassidy moved over to Scotland during the potato famine



Their offspring married into the Scottish Campbells, and eventually the Cassidy name was lost to the Campbell surname through the generations.

I have no idea which part of Ireland they were from but I have an idea it might have been Fermanagh!

Wow, Bill is actually admitting to having Irish blood in the family. laugh.gif

My paternal g'g'parents were both Irish and although my paternal g'dad was born in Glasgow, he was raised in Ireland. He came back to Glasgow when a young man and started his own Horse & Cart Business. laugh.gif
