FENLON Family History

Recorded in the spellings of Fenlin, Fenelon, Fenlon, Finl;and and possibly others, this is an ancient Irish and sometimes a French surname. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic O'Fionnallain, which translates literally as the descendant of the son of the fair one, and is probably a reference to the first chieftain, who may have been a Viking. The Norsemen conquered much of Ireland in the 8th century a.d., and Dublin was their capital. The name would seem to be a reference to one who was fair haired andf fair skin, whilst the original natives like the Welsh and Olde English were more swarthy and dark complexioned.

    James Fenlon

    There are many Fenlons in County Wexford and the neighboring County Carlow, but there are some in other counties as well. The best records are the parish church records. You might have to visit several counties and parishes to determine exactly where James was born. Based on his birth date his family may have emigrated to the United States because of the Great Famine which started in 1845.

    I am trying to find where my Grandmothers family is from in Ireland. His name is James Fenlon and he was born in 1841. He was married to Eliza Coogan and they lived in New York. That's all I know , any suggestions?
