Clans and Families of Ireland and Scotland
Appendix II - A List of Surnames

erenaghs). If a family is only known to originate in a metropolitan area such as Dublin, or Cork City, then a family tradition must be extant to determine the origin of the family (unless a family connection to the city is very old). The same is true if the families in question lived in areas adjacent to each other, though this is relatively rare for families of the same name. For the most part the genealogist’s track is straightforward when logic and some sense of history are employed. For Scottish families, holding a sept-name is often a better indication of actual descent than holding the clan chief’s name itself, unless a knowledge of one’s exact connection to the chiefly line is knogn (see remarks in Part I, Chapter 1). This again reflects the particular differences of Scottish clanship. In addition, many Scottish families also appear in Ulster after the sixteenth century, as a result of large-scale immigration. The genealogist will find this cross-referenced appendix invaluable, and a further look to the bibliography is also advised, especially where doubt may exist. Also, when using this, name-forms should be searched with and without the prefixes "0" and "Mac."
