Posted: 30 Mar 2000 5:29PM GMT
My name is William Feehan Jr. I am looking for relatives and try to research origins as far back as possible. As far back as I have info on is the following. MYSELF, my father William Feehan, my grandfather Benjamin Feehan, HIs father Bernard Feehan and his father John Feehan who came from Ireland in 1846 origin unknown. I have plenty of information leading up to John Feehan my great great grand father. I know that somewhere along the way the name Feehan is a dirivative of Fagan. But this is just some of the information I am seeking so if you have any info or questions email me please email me WilliamFeehanPTA@hotmail.com

Hi William,
I too am trying to trace my gg grandfather, Timothy Feehan from Co. Tipperary Ireland, I have found that the Feehans come mostly from north and east Tipperary and surrounding counties(Kilkenny to east, Limerck and Clare to the west and Kings and Queens(modern day Laois and Offaly)to the north. A region around Thurles from Clonmel to Kilkenny town to Birr To Limerick town would cover most of them. This is still a large area, but does narrow it down a bit. Hope it helps. Good Luck in your search.

Hi Colm,
For you daughter:
The Shield is: Red and ermine with three gold cups.
The Crest is: A griffin holding an olive branch.
The motto is: "Deo Patriesque Fidelis
I have a computer generated picture that I would be happy to send, just email me at : dotsybabin@cs.com
Also, somewhere I have the translation of the motto, and the meaning of everything, will have to dig them up for you!
Now, I'm intrigued, think you are the first Feehan I've run across with roots to Roscrea,you wouldn't happen to have a Timothy Feehan, born abt 1834 who married Mary Honner, daughter of John Honner, from Rossdorragha, County Laios
hanging anywhere on your tree would you? They left Ireland shortly after their marriage,abt. 1855, and went to South Australia. Timothy is my ongoing Stone wall!
