County Fermanagh coat of arms

Bordering Co. Cavan to the south, Co. Fermanagh makes up the Northern Irish contingent of the Irish Lakeland region. Situated right in the centre of the county is the county town, Enniskillen, which separates Fermanagh's two major lakes: Upper Lough Erne and Lower Lough Erne. Fermanagh also has numerous waterways and rivers, including a canal that links Upper Lough Erne to the River Shannon, which have made it quite popular with boaters and anglers.

Enniskillen Castle, Lough Erne, Co. Fermanagh

Co. Fermanagh is largely rural and agricultural, with the main industry here being livestock, including sheep, cattle and pigs. The county has a very low-lying, soft green landscape that is used mostly for grazing rather than growing crops. There are few mountains in Fermanagh, but the Castle Archdale Forest Walk treads along the Maghoo Cliffs, offering excellent views of Lough Erne.

Castle Archdale Forest Park, Co. Fermanagh

There are also a number of underground treasures in Co. Fermanagh, especially the Marble Arch Caves. This series of limestone show caverns is located near Florencecourt and is open for boat tours along the underground River Claddagh.

Marble Arch Caves, Co. Fermanagh

Several early castles around Co. Fermanagh nod to its Norman and Victorian history. Enniskillen Castle in the county town was built for the Maguire chieftains in the 16th century, while the more modern Castle Coole is an 18th century, neoclassical mansion surrounded by a wooded estate. And on Devenish Island on Lower Lough Erne, the remains of a 6th-century monastery and 12th century round tower give a view to the area's early Christian history.

A number of famous people can trace their roots to Fermanagh, including U.S. President Bill Clinton, whose ancestral home is the village of Roslea. Both Oscar Wilde and playwright Samuel Beckett studied at Portora Royal School in Enniskillen, and Charles Lawson of Coronation Street fame is also from Fermanagh's county town.

My name is Sally and I am looking for James Wilson. Actually the first Wilson in Ireland of our family came from Scotland about 1590 or so. I have a letter from a relative who says that in 1600 the Wilson in Ireland lost all three sons to drowning in the well on the farm in County Longford – just south of County Cavan. His first name is not known but the letter said that after those deaths, he moved north to County Cavan. Clearly the family remained in County Cavan for over 200 years. The earliest documented Wilson was John Wilson who was born about 1760 in County Cavan, Ireland. He had two sons - including William Wilson who was born in County Cavan, Ireland in 1790. He married Esther Coote (also from County Cavan) and they had 7 of their children born in Ireland. The nine of them then they made their way to Canada from Ireland – quite a trip. That was about 1840. (Their last child born in Ireland was born in October of 1839 and their next child was born in Ontario in 1843.) William and Esther settled in Cobourg, Ontario and then commenced to have 5 more kids – for a total of 12

Robert Wilson

This was written by my father beginning with his Grandfather Alexander: Alexander Wilson was brought up somewhere in the parish of Redrock, Market Hill, Armagh and it would seem that he married sometime between 1840-50. He and his wife set up home in a small farm in the town land of Lisbane, Armagh (this farm is now owned by the Carmichael family). He also had a leather business and manufactured boots at the lower end of Thomas Street, Armagh. Alexander Wilson and his wife, Margaret, had six of a family, William, James, Alexander, Margaret, Eliza and Joseph. William emigrated to the Americas in his youth and was very little heard off. James carried on his fathers business and it would appear, was very successful He later owned the Mancheste

(Part 1 of 3) The Wilson name has a long history in the British Isles and belongs to several tribal backgrouds, but now DNA and some recorded history says one origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. This Wilson story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup FA] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Wilson surname origin is possibly from the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who found the Kingdom of Brycheiniog, Wales around 300 CE.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Kingdom of Brycheiniog will take part in an invasion of Brittany, France around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Wilson story begins in pre-history Ireland but this descendant will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. A relative and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

But as we all know divorces can kill a lot..and me being the only living Flanagan from my family. I'm very lonely. I'm 6th.4inches and 250lbs..I'm all Celtic and very good hearted due to my raising.I'm a server and a protector .and I would like to meet my family in Ireland... I was born on Sept. 23. 1965.

Spencer

My father was named Spencer, however my mother is Flanagan and it seems I am more Flanagan than Spencer... I reside in the mountain of West Virginia, US. My family likes to drink beer, fish and hunt. My papaw's name was Clearance Flanagan who married Rosie Hamilton. She had 13 children. My Papaw on my dads side married Loretta McDonald and had 11 children. BIG FAMILIES. Every since I was a little boy, I imagined what it would be like to visit Ireland and somehow find where my family came from... I'm an artist painting in oils and would love to set up my easel and bring my pallet and paints to do some studies of the Irish countryside. Some day hopefully.

Roger Steven Manus Jr.

Colter Kraemer, Francis Toole, or Donald Manus, My name is Roger Steven Manus Jr. Of Spencer, Tennessee My parents were Roger Steven Manus Sr. and Tammy Elaine Brimer. My grandparents were Ernest Eugene "Gene" Manus and Lela Inez Steakley of Spencer, Tennessee. Gene's parents were Revedy Manus and Goldie Prater. Revedy's parents were Barney Manus and (I think) Elizabeth Bouldin. Unfortunately, I didn't get to spend very much time with my father's side of the family and meet relatives and learn my heritage, and so, sadly this is about all I know and all I can find about my heritage. Any help at all is desperately needed and appreciated, and I am so glad to meet other family members that otherwise I would never know.

My grandfather was John Patrick Keenan. He was a skilled carpenter and came from a family in NE Victoria at a place named Staghorn Flat. near Wodonga and Albury. Grandpa was an astue man who suffered during and after WW1. Though of an honest disposition, his WW1 experiences led to him being charged with Desertion, though I believe he was in British Casualty Clearing Station prior to a British Red Cross Hospital and then the Rouen rehabilitation hospital in France after suffering the affects of a gas attack. His post WW1 life indicates an industrious man with responsible community values Any links back to a credible path through history of his original family will be greatly appreciated.

(Part 1 of 3) The McAuley name has a long history in Ireland and Scotland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The McAuley story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The McAuley surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

(Part 2 of 3) A group will also found the Kingdom of Ercing in Wales as trade with Romans will become essential around 300 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The McAuley story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

My Grandfather was John Corry born in 1906 and his wife was Ellen Corry born in 1909. I am going to continue my research as well. I would love to connect as I am planning a trip to Ireland in the Spring if travel loosens by then!

Slevin

John Slevin, Brickeens, Ballymacormick, Longford, Ireland 1868-1913 To add to your summary of the family: According to a book I perused by Edward MacLysaght, the first Slevin were subordinate to the Clan of Egan (Cenél Eoghain) in Tyrone. According to Mr Luke Baxter, chemist and journeyman historian of Stonepark, Longford, Ireland, the family spent several centuries as monks & nuns; there are(as of 1991) no Slevin living in the southwest of Longford, but some in Tyrone and Roscommon. I'm sure some of this will be useful to people researching their connection to the Slevin of old. ????
