MULVIHILL Family History

This interesting surname is of Irish origin, and is the Anglicized form of the Gaelic O' Maoilmhichil, son of the devotee of (St.) Michael. Michael is a personal name of Hebrew origin which means "who is like the Lord"; this was the name of one of the archangels, the leader of the heavenly host, and hence the patron of the christian warrior. The name became popular from the 12th Century onwards. The namebearers claim descent from Maol Mhichil, who was a chief of Siol Muireadhaigh in the early 9th Century.

My great grandmother is Catherine Mulvihill, born in 1882. She married George Matthews (born 1887). I knew nothing of my Irish heritage because my mother was adopted and this fact was kept from her until she was in her 50s. Her biological mother is Margaret Matthews, born in 1911.


Dorothy (my mother) born 06/01/1926, died 12/21/2019. Her sister and Brother John have passed but I don't remember the dates Regina, Thomas and John Mulvihill from Brooklyn, NY. My uncle Thomas was born 05/18/1934. I have six cousins who are Mulvihill's. I have been told that both sides of my mothers' lineage cone from Roscommon and from West Meath. I am 3rd, maybe 4th generation American (someone came here and went back home).
