LENNON Family History

Recorded in several spelling forms including O'Lennon, O'Lennan, Lennon, Linnane and Lineen this interesting surname is Irish. It usually originated from the pre 10th century O'Leannain, a byname meaning "lover", but may also be from O'Lonain, a diminutive of "lon", meaning the blackbird. Traditionally, Irish family names are taken from the heads of tribes, and were originally prefixed by O' meaning the grandson or male descendant, or Mac, meaning son of. The O'Lennons of Fermanagh held the office of erenage, that is the hereditary holder of church property, and the maintainers of priests.

Thank you for responding to my query, I am confused if this is 3 responses from 3 different people or one as they are all very vague - is Lennon Hugh one person refering to John E Lennon Date of birth around 1680 Date of Death 1742? or are you Hugh and you are referrring to Hugh John E Lennon? - Is Chris Lennon from Glasgow or is the first respondant Chris Lennon? - What does 12/11/1986 refer to? Thanking you in advance Georgina Wilde

Good morning, I am seeking information about my Lennon Heritage (Paternal side) but have little to go on, my father was born in Coatbridge in North Lanarkshire, Scotland, he emigrated from Glasgow to New Zealand due to ther depression - His name is/was Jimmy Lennon, guessing was James? and would have been born sometime around 1932 - He was a coastal seaman based in Wellington NZ. What is the best avenue for me to access information? I have had a Dna test but no one from my paternal side came up in my results. Thanking you in advance


Hugh John E Lennon Date of Birth: around 1680 Date of Death: 1742

Chris Lennon
