Hiya, I am a Farnan.
My Grandfather was Tom Farnan from Meath he had a brother called Francis (Frank) I think but the family history is a bit mudlled. Most of the Family moved to London but some remained in Meath. After reading the Alphonso connection it rang a bell as one of my Great Uncles? was called 'Fonzie' Farnan and I wondered whether it came from the Alphonso link. If anyone knows anything about the Farnans in Meath please send me some info. Thanks, Nadine
