Very interested in family history, have very little information. I will be in Ireland this October, hope to find more info at that time. Anything you can give me will help.

My father's name was James Patrick Scollan, born NYC 1911, married Elizabeth Holley.

Spent two wonderful weeks traveling Ireland, didn't get your message until my return. Did some research at the Dublin,National Library - they said that my family comes from the north in Derry. I had been told before Leithrim.

Now I'm totally confused and even more curious about my history. Any info will help.

It is not exactly known from where exactly the Scollans originate. One theory ( and it is only a theory) is that a Francois Scallon (French) was shipwrecked off the Irish coast in 1600s and started the Scollan variously known as Scallan/Scollin/Scollen etc line from Fermanagh. Not many Scollans now remain in Ireland. Some are in Leitrim where they seem to go back at least to the late 1700s. I was born in Leitrim but I am aware of Scollans in parts of USA and in UK who are all currently searching Scollans. I have only just got interested, having recently got enquiries from people. We are currently corresponding directly by email and building up a tree branch by branch or to be more honest leaf by leaf!!!.

We have already two little trees and a lot of names of scollans who emigrated at various times or had land in Ireland or were born or died etc. It is like trying to piece together a jigsaw.

I am not sure how you can begin to contact me directly as I am not sure of the wisdom of giving out email numbers over a noticeboard but maybe you know a way? This was my first time to use a noticeboard!

In Michigan here, where my great grandfather was James Frances Scollan born 1876, married Mary Lenahan (family is also of Ireland). James' father and mother were William Scollan and Ann McNamo (?) of Ireland. Ended up Michigan. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your reply. I have been so confused that I am really hoping someone will put a nice tree with alll Scollans from all over the world on it!! At any rate I have a record here od a William Scollan born 1844 in Leitrim and another William Scollan born 1849. That makes them candidates for being the father of your great grandfather. and then again ...who knows!
Thank you
Liam Scollan

Surnames: Noble Scollon Scollins
Hello, Alan--
My great-grandfather, John Francis Noble (believed to have been a teenage stowaway) was born in Co. Fermanagh in 1847 and is listed on the 1860 U. S. census as living in Meriden, CT with farm laborers named Anthony and Mary Scollon (on another record the name is written as Scollins) who, according to oral tradition, were relatives. More than a decade later, Anthony and Mary were also Catholic godparents in Meriden for one of the sons of John Francis. Any known connection?
