SPAIN Family History

This most interesting surname, found in England and Ireland, is a habitational name from either Epaignes in Eure, France, so called because it was established by colonists from Spain in Roman times, or from Espinay in Ille-de-Vilaine, Brittany, from the Old French word "espine", a thorn bush. In Ireland the name appears to have been acquired by a person who lived in Spain for a period, as important historical and trading links existed between Irish coastal towns, especially in the south west, and Spain.
