The largest county in England, Yorkshire is known for expansive green moors, historic heritage and rich cultural legacy. Elegant in appearance, the White Rose of the English royal House of York is used as the emblem to represent the beauty and elegance of the stunning county which is even lovingly termed as ‘God’s Own County’ at times. The history of the county runs back centuries, centuries of Celtic settlement, illustrious royal houses, Civil Wars, industrial evolution as well as dark episodes like that of the Black Death of the Fourteenth Century that have gradually shaped Yorkshire into the place that it is today.

Nestled between the North Sea coast on the east and River Tees on the north, Yorkshire is bordered by the Humber estuary on the south and the rolling Pennine hills on the west. The countryside of Yorkshire is drained by a number of rivers like Don, Sheaf, Goole, Swale, Ure and Esk. The county is made of diverse topographical regions, including the North York Moor, the south-eastern Chalk lands, hilly regions of the Pennine and the Central Vale region.

The Industrial Revolution came to impact the economy of Yorkshire in a large way. Historically, the shire had become a seat of textile and steel industries. Although overcrowding led to the gradual decline of the traditional industrial centres, today Yorkshire is a bustling hub of economic activity. The town of Leeds is an important financial city in England and the major economic hub of Yorkshire. Sheffield, a city that had boasted of major steel and coal-mining industries in the last few decades, has faced economic decline in recent years. However, today the defunct heavy industries have come to be replaced by service oriented industries and specialist engineering functions. The major port city of Yorkshire is Kingston upon Hull which also doubles as a manufacturing base. The fishing industry of the port city however, has declined in recent years.

The tourism industry of Yorkshire has experienced growth with the appeal of its National Parks as well as novel attractions like the Harrogate International Centre. Yorkshire experiences a cold and temperate climate throughout the year with a substantial amount of rainfall. February is the driest month of the year while June experiences the maximum amount of rainfall. Yorkshire is also famous for its architectural splendour that combines the aesthetic sensibilities of different eras in harmony. Some notable Castles include the picturesque Bowes Castle, Richmond Castle, Pickering Castle, Skipton Castle and York Castle which exhibit the elements of the Norman-Breton period. Middleham, the childhood home of King Richard III of England is also located in Yorkshire. Allerton Castle, Castle Howard and the Earl of Harewood’s Harewood House are other heritage sites that attract throngs of tourists to Yorkshire.

Yorkshire can also boast of being the birthplace of several important poets, artists and painters who have left behind a chequered and illustrious literary legacy. The Bronte Sisters have immortalised the moors and wilderness of Yorkshire in the pages of their immortal novels. The local breweries, the swigs of local beers and the strains of local music add to the enigma that Yorkshire is.

I recently took a genetic test done on my biological ancentry. Most of my ancestors are from Ireland/Scotland. My surname is Johnson. I really don't much about the family name other than being told that much of my family is upper european, German, Swedish, Irish , English and Scottish. I would really appreciate any help that I could get to trace family farther back than just my great grandfather.

My family originates from Ballymena, and emigrated to Canada in 1880. My great grandfather was Alexander Brown, married to Margaret Stirling in Ballymena.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 1 of 3) The Brown name has a long history in Ireland. The Brown story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins 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 Brown surname origin is from Clan Birn from which will emerge surnames Bruen (Brown) [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald, Donohue and Hughs from the larger Clan Domnaill in Ireland.
Reply

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. 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 Brown story begins in pre-history Ireland but relatives will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. A descendant and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Walker surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwynedd in Brittany. 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 Walker story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

He worked as a tailor in Regina, SK, Cda until his retirement. He died in Regina in 1967. He came to Canada with 2 siblings (that I know of) Betty and Joe.

He and Patricia had a son Michael Howard and I am his son Aron Howard.

(Part 1 of 3) The Hayes name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Hayes story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup C2] 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 Hayes surname origin is possibly from the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who found the Kingdom of Brycheiniog, Wales around 300 CE.

(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 Hayes 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. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

If a male Griffin has DNA analysis done by 23andme, currently they will assign the Scottish Highlander Y haplogroup R-S764 to members of Kerry Ireland origin Griffins.

I live in Australia in the Northern Rivers area of New South Wales. My Spencer ancestor, John Spencer, was born in Tipperary around 1828 (I think...). I have links to cousins in the US and Canada, who report that their ancestor was one of a large family from Ireland who dispersed to our respective countries. John Spencer married in Ireland, but I’m not sure if his wife was Catherine McGrath (McKenna) or Catherine Grainger. I’m hoping to find a marriage registration to verify which one is the correct one. My paternal Great-Grandmother, Patience Ellen Spencer, daughter of John Spencer, was born in Australia. She was an incredibly strong woman and was still having a bet on horse-races on her 94th birthday. Is there any way I could find birth/marriage records for John Spencer from Tipperary. I am a member of Ancestry and have taken the DNA test, which is how I found my North American cousins, but it is difficult to find which record is accurate without going to the official source. I’m hoping this forum is the place to post a request for information. Please delete if not.

My tree involves a confusion of Rileys. One I am sure of was Joseph Riley who married Hannah Odell in Guilford County, North Carolina, 1819. They subsequently moved west to Ohio, possibly, and then to Indiana, where Joseph died about 1838. Hannah raised a large family of Riley kids, somewhere between 10 and 13 children. One of the potential Riley associates of Joseph back in North Carolina was a William, who was said in the History of Henry County, Indiana (1884) to have immigrated to Guilford County, N.C. from Germany. Can anyone shed light on Rileys coming from Germany in the 1780s or so?

(Part 1 of 3) The Burton name can be found in the British Isles, but its origin according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. The Burton story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins 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 Burton surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

He married a young English girl called Emma in July 1861, he was 29 and a widower she was 21 and a spinster.I have been unable to find anything about William,he was missing from the UK census in 1861 and also earlier UK census returns.I am told Barrett is an Irish name and I think it is possible William came to London from Ireland just before he married.I have no idea if I have Irish ancestry but feel it couod well be possible.

I have been researching my name for some time now,I am Irish and generations before me are all Irish.The more I researched the more confusing it became. Example, the Daw in front of the name is purported to be a nickname,which is incorrect as the word Daw is an anglesisation of the Gaelic name Daithi which means David,and the Dawson in Gaelic translates to MacDaidhidh, Davidson. Which is one of the clans of Scotland and that is the explanation we are satisfied with.

Rob Gregory

Giles Gregory, I understand, served with Cromwell in Ireland and received an estate in Tipperary as compensation for his service. On Giles death the estate passed to his cousin Thomas (1602-1666) who settled in Londonderry and there had two sons, George and Robert. During the siege Robert and George led the protestant forces in defense of the city. Robert was left bankrupt after the Crown refused to reimburse his expenses following the siege but George, and his many sons, fared better. One of his sons leased a farm in Limerick and, following a quarrel with his landlord, moved to Galway. I'm aware of the Gregory family of Coole Park in Galway but my main quest is to find whether there really is a link with John Gregory (1179-1225) Lord of Fresely and Asfordby in Leicestershire, England who, apparently, was born in Ireland. Any information around this topic would be appreciated.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 1 of 3) The Moody name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Moody story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Moody surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.
Reply

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland 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 Moody story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

The real original French Massy's ?? I only believe in the real French origins of MASSY Essonne 300 After Christ , the GalloRoman Massius .. The English Chester Massey's and later Irish Massy's are leftovers from the deformation of the original French name of - Guillaume de le Fereté de Mascé ,Seigneur in MACEY Normandy France one of the warriors that came over with William The Conqueror in 1066 in the Hastings Batle , he provided 60 ships for the combats and started in Cheshire the Names of Massey // see the first Hamon Massey's of Dunham later on the English Massey's were involved into the English -Irish Cromwell Catholic - Protestant offensives and one of them changed the name into Massy without the 'E' before the Y .. in this way resembling to the original 300 AC original French name of Massy Essonne origines . I do not believe there is any bloodbands in these two tribes , and I believe the oldest and real are going back to Paris -MASSY Essonne on the Mount Gaudon 's Villa Rustica and if So then they were derived from the Latino Massius or Maccius name and these go back to at least 50 BEFORE Christ in the Gallo Roman area .read the Livy books about Massius 56 B.C. now the Barbados Massy's is a different matter ,If you know that lot's of Irish people were moved over to Barbados around the Cromwell time 1650's ..think about possibly Irish Massy's in this perspective . Canadian and USA Massy's and Massey's can have one of both origins aswell real old French as English and Irish and be no blood-family frome eachother ..who knows the real truth ???? Puzzle !! the English 'DOMESDAY ' book contains lots of Massey's as property owners starting at 1060 about ! And English Peerage is full with barons Massey .but inn France several are 'seigneurs and also baron '-de Massy , from around 1750 even the Monaco Grimaldis are into the ' de Massy ' tribe ! everyday I find more ancestry news .

They had five daughters born in the Bansha area and baptized in the church in Bansha. The family left Ireland for the USA in 1853-54 and settled in New York. The youngest child Bridget apparently died before they entered the states. They moved to Ohio in 1860 and on to Iowa when John W. Butler retired from the railroad. Margaret Buckley died in Union Prairie, Allamakee County, Iowa on March 8, 1883 and is buried near their farm across from the Irish Catholic Church in Union Prairie Township. They had eight children, the last three born in the USA. Very interested in Buckley connections around and near Bansha, Tipperary.

My gt-gt-grandfather Adam Nixon, born 1799 in Denn parish, Co Cavan, came to New Zealand in 1847 with his family. His wife was Elizabeth Reilly also born in Cavan. Some other family members went to USA about the same time. Nothing more is known about them.

Looking for Margaret Irwin b. Abt 1803 Tennessee, USA. Married Hamilton Copeland 13 Jan.1827, Washington County, Tennessee. Definitely a brick wall for me. I am slowly plowing through the Irwin’s in Tennessee and North Carolina. A couple of weeks before my Dad died, he told me we were definitely connected to Robert the Bruce. I had been asking him family questions for years, and this came out of left field.

Richard Bolton, according to a marriage record was born in 1799 in Ontario, was married in Ontario, Canada to Mary Ann James at the age of 62 in 1861. His parents are listed as Richard Bolton and Mary Lindon, born in Wexford, Ireland. What do we know of the Bolton family of Wexford from before the Canadian immigration?

My grandmother was abandoned at an orphan asylum in San Francisco, California in 1903. She said she paper pinned to her gown that said her name was "Louise Bolton." Have had very little success in finding connections through DNA Ancestry.com, 23andM3, or FamilyTreeDNA. The MtDNA however suggests her maternal family originated from Inishowen. I wonder if possibly the lack of DNA matches has to do with the possibility that her mother was the only one to emigrate, and that other family members remained in Ireland. Far-fetched I know, but I find it hard to accept that there are no living DNA connections.

Dear Sir/Madam, Richard Cooke (from Dover) married Silvester (Silvestra) Marsh (daughter of Henry Marsh from Canterbury) in 1666. Their son Thomas Cooke immigrated to Rotterdam. I am a descendant and our Cooke family crest is the same as the Irish one shown in your website (we have lion on top). I had my DNA checked and my roots are not in England, but in Ireland/Welch/Scotland. Can you help me out with more details about Richard Cooke in connection to Ireland. Yours faithfully, Anita Cooke

King Hanley of Tipperary, Ireland fought in Crusades. Castle eventually destroyed but remnants still stand. Villagers adopted O’Ainle (O’Hanley) as they were of the Hanley kingdom. I am a direct descendant of King Hanley (although many generations down), and my father spent time in Tipperary verifying the information and meeting direct descendant relatives of King Hanley. Why is none of this information available on the internet? No mention of King Hanley of Tipperary?

Hi, just wanted to see if there were any of my Irish relatives out there. My grandfather came from Limerick and was called Thomas, his father was called John and his mother was called Jinney (nee Lynch) . He had brothers called Michael, Johnny and Paddy. He had sisters called Essey and Mary Bridget (Cissy). It would be wonderful if I could find relatives still out there as it has been such a long time since I last met your family. Thanks for taking the time to read this and fingers crossed. Mark.
