Hannon Family History

Recorded as Hannan, Hannon, Honnan and possibly others, this is a Gaelic surname which can be Scottish or Irish. It originates from the early clan name O' Hannain, meaning the male descendant of Annan, and originally the surname was associated with Counties Limerick, Galway and Roscommon. The first recording of the name dates back to the mid 13th Century (see below). The surname is often confused and particularly in Scotland with the surnames Hanna and Hannay, although these are thought to be from a completely different source. Early examples of recordings include Michael, son of John and Ellen Hannon, who was christened on October 19th 1795, at Mitchelstown, County Cork, Ireland whilst Patrick Hannan (1842 - 1925), who was born in County Clare, discovered the Kalgoorlie goldfield in Western Australia...

Roadblock looking for Patrick Hannon (or Hannan) born Ireland about 1852. Married to Nora Josephine Hynes. Immigrated to US somewhere between 1865

Patrick Hannon

I am looking for the parents of Ferdinand (sometimes called Fredrick) Hannon. He was a Sergeant in the Royal Irish Constables. My records have him born around 1832 in County Galway, Ireland, and he died 15 Sep 1911 in Loughrea, County Galway, Ireland. He was married to Hanora Hough. Their son, Patrick, is my Great Grandfather and where I got my name.

Stephen Brown

My great great grandfather was James Hannon who lived in Halifax NS in the 1860s,His wife was betsy Lahey. I believe he was the brother of the Bishop of Halifax, Michael, who came from Killmallock Ireland. I was in Halifax looking for James' burial place and couldn't find it. I was also in Killmallock looking for info but have had no luck beyond finding James was a butcher.Any info would be welcome.
