Dunn

In Irish, O Duinne or O Doinn,, a descendant of Duinn (donn means "brown" or "brown haired"),  is one of the most numerous names in the midland counties especially Co. Laois. Formerly called O'Doyne (lords of Iregan) the name is usually spelt with the final e (Dunne).  Records for our family in Ireland use both spellings. More on the history of the Dunne Clann can be found on the Dunn Sept Association website.

    7. Ellen 1840
  2. Cornelius (bef 1810 -   ) There is no record proving that Cornelius is a brother, but it seems likely as they were both living in Mocklershill in 1830 and John named a son Cornelius.  It is possible that Cornelius is John's father, but his land holdings are smaller than John's making one think younger brother.
