CURRIN Family History

This interesting name is one of the Anglicized forms of the Gaelic (Irish) 'O'Corraidhin', meaning 'descendant of Corraidhin', a personal name from a diminutive form of the byname derived from 'corradh', spear. The surname Currin is numerous and widespread in Ireland now, both in its Anglicized forms and in the Irish forms of O'Corrain or O'Currain. In the 16th and 17th Centuries, the name was found mainly in counties Waterford and Tipperary, and also in Galway and Leitrim. In Kerry, the name was usually found as Currane, and other variants in the modern idiom include, Corran, Curreen and Curren.

My father’s descendants surname are Currin. The earliest relative we found was Thomas Currin, born 1685, Ballbogan, Donegal, Ireland and immigrated to New York. He died in 1730 and was buried at the Trinity Church, New York. His wife may be ‘Mary’. No information on who was his wife. However, I have doubts that he was the right father who had a son Hugh Currin born 1710 in Granville, North Carolina. Died same place on 1777. If Thomas Currin lived and died in New York, he would have children in New York, not at Granville, North Carolina. It would be great to know who was the father of Hugh Currin, who is our 5th great grandfather. Thank you! Jan Currin Clancy
