Comments.......: Hi - I've been reading your site with interest as I'm a Lynskey (from Ireland). As some of your correspondents don't seem too sure about the origins of the name, here's what most experts think happened (see McLysaght, Surnames of Ireland).

The name isn't Polish nor is it a weird version of the Anglo-Norman name, Lynch. It comes from the Irish (Gaelic) name Loingseach (pronounced Lengsha). This is the Irish for a sailor, so presumably the first Lynskey was a fisherman! This name was common throughout Gaelic Ireland (pre 1600). As Ireland gradually became anglicised between 1600 and 1800, Irish people began to adopt English versions of their names. In the south and east of Ireland which were anglicised first, the name Loingseach became Lynch (after a fashionable Anglo-Norman name, common among the Norman aristocracy). However the west of Ireland (mainly Galway/Mayo) remained Irish-speaking until the great famine of the 1840's. So when the then British Government undertook an Ordnance Survey of Ireland in the 1830's, one of their objectives was to thoroughly anglicise the country and root out Gaelic place-names and surnames. As the people conducting the survey (British Army personnel mainly) had neither interest nor love of Gaelic culture, they crudely translated names purely by sound. So the Irish Loingseach became Lynchey, Lynsky, Lynskey or Linskey. They weren't even consistent in their botching of the name!

After the famine, there was huge emigration from Galway and Mayo, which went on for well over fifty years. When these mainly Irish-speaking people landed in New York or Montreal (or later in New Zealand), they naturally adopted the English version of their name which had been handed to them or their parents by a British army officer some years before. Similarly within Ireland itself, people gradually stopped speaking Irish (not fashionable etc), and began to use the names given them by the Survey. It is ironic that Galway and Mayo, which are the most Gaelic parts of Ireland, have probably the highest proportion of English-sounding names in Ireland. They're not really English names - just poor 'translations' of Gaelic names.

So that's why virtually all Lynskeys worldwide are descended from Galway/Mayo people. We're distantly related to the more common Lynch's but to the Gaelic variety - not the Norman version. I hope this hasn't disillusioned any bearers of what's a true Gaelic name in it's original form. I think it's always best to know the facts and leave the fairy-tales/fantasies to the kids!

As a final point, I think it's noteworthy that the Irish were the first Europeans to use surnames - way back in the 9th century. It's generally agreed that Kelly (O'Ceallaigh in Irish) was the first European surname. I don't know when Loingseach first appeared but we can be sure there's the best part of a thousand years behind us.

If you've got this far, thanks for listening!

Comments.......: My family are from Birkenhead, near to Liverpool in England. My GGG Grandmother was Bridget Lynskey, born around 1830 in Ireland. Family history suggests that she came to England at around the time of the famine as a widow with a baby son.

I have traced her through the 1901 census, living in Field Street Birkenhead, with her daughter Julia, and Julia's family. Julia's marriage certificate shows her father as Patrick Linskey (sic) deceased.

I am looking for some information which might shed light on whether Bridget's marriage to Patrick Lynskey was a second marriage, or whether Julia was the child who arrived with her widowed mother.

while looking at the census for 1901 I came up with another family of Lynskey's a few doors away. this household was headed by Mary Lynskey, born around 1850, a widow with a daughter Madden. I am interested in looking at whether that family are related to Bridget.

There were two other Lynskey families in the area at the time of the census. One lived at Argyle Street South. The family comprised of Patrick and Mary Ann, with their children Peter, mary Ann, Patrick, Michael and a servant Fanny Cunningham. I can't find a link, and the names are unfamiliar, however they seem to link with details on your web site. The birth place of the children is shown as Rock Ferry.

I would be pleased to hear from anyone with any information which might take me further in my research.

Hi, My name is Glen Leroy Lynskey. I came across this site while searching the web for Lynskey's. I was wondering if I was related. I was born in Witchata Falls, Texas in 1959. My Grandmother, Lurlene Lynskey says I have ties to Ireland, but no one knows any details. My mother is Deloris Janette Lynskey. My dad is Teddy Knipe, my mom changed my name back to her maiden name when I was 9mo. old. Their relationship was devorced at that time. My mom's dad is Glen Eugene Lynskey and his brother is Ed Lynskey. Do you have any family tree info that could apply to me.

Thank you,

Brian Lynskey from Orange Park, Florida, USA. Decendant from one of the three brothers who crossed over from northern Ireland in the mid-1800's - Patrick, Michael or Martin. Other Lynskeys in Wheeling West Virginia, Miami Florida, Front Royal Virginia Asheburn Virginia and Danville Virginia. Interested in what year these brothers came over, what port they disembarked and what they did during the American Civil War if they came over before 1865.

Thanks

Brian - Martin Carroll Lynskey was my great great grandfather. He and his brother Patrick served in the 57th Virginia Infantry during the Civil War. The 57th fought at Malvern Hill, Gettysburg and Five Forks. I believe Patrick was wounded at Malvern Hill (I think it was called Crewes Farm in the South). Martin and Patrick were part of Pickett's Charge and were members of Armistead's Brigade. Martin was captured there and spent most of the remainder of the war in prison at Point Lookout in Maryland. He was released in 1865, returned to his Company and was promptly recaptured during the Battle of Five Forks, which was one of the last battles for the Army of Northern Virginia before Appomattax.

Chuck -

Here is the logo information I found in old family stuff -

A family member dug up the Lynskey Coat of Arms from the Sanson Institute of Heraldry at Boston, Mass (USA) around 1966. I have a picture here at home. the Coat consists of a shield, straight across the top, with straight sides that later taper to a point in the center at the bottom. A wide inverted "V" bisects the shield. Three trefoils (shamrocks) are appointed to the shield - top right, top left and center bottom.

The backgrouns should be the color "azure", representing truth and loyalty.

The "arms" or inverted "V", should be the color "argent", that is silver, representing nobility serenity and peact - also purity and chastity because silver withstands the test of fire.

The three trefoils should be the color "or", that is gold, attributed to valor, celestial light and honor.

It is said that each color, line, curve and symbol has a specific meaning. the Sanson Institute feels that our shield dates to the 13th century.

hello there, I was just bored at work and googling my name on the Internet and this webpage came up. I'm a Lynskey too but I'm from the other side of the Atlantic, in the UK. The only Lynskey heritage I know is that it's an irish name, although my immediate family were from Liverpool. Someone has also told me that Lynskey means something along the lines of 'person from accross the sea' so I reckon we're a travelling bunch. Might be rubbish but you never know. Anyway, hope you are happy and healthy, Jude Lynskey (heyjude20002001@yahoo.com)

Hi, My name is Richard D. Kelley am am the son of Janet Lynsky Wife of William R. Kelley. How are you doing Cousin? I lived in Califorinia for 10 years and have been in Texas for about 8 years. I have been seeking to get out of the Texas heat, perhaps Southern VA or North Carolina.

Thank you for putting up the Web site. I miss all the family that I had as a child, I have some vidio that I took of Granpa Gaston that I took 1993 with MOM (Janet). Granpa showed us around the Falls Church home and some of the many things he built, including the China hutch in the Dining room. I always loved both my Grandfather's workshops. I would be glad to make you a copy if you like. I would also like to come to a reunion some time. I haven't seen Aunt Marie and Uncle Bob in 20 years or more.

My Grandfather was Frank Lynskey who had a sister Peggy (margaret) and brother Micheal (now all deceased)Glad to see there are so many lynskeys around the world. As a child i used to look at the telephone book and the few lynskeys that were there were relatives.

Hi, my name is Susan (Lynskey) Slawson. It's New Years eve (2003) and I'm the only one in the office today. To relieve my boredom during my lunch break I decided to search my maiden name in the google search engine and couldn't believe how much stuff about Lynskeys exists. I live in Warrington Cheshire UK. I have a sister called Sharon and we are the children of Ernie (b 1924 d. 1989) and Vera (Morris) Lynskey. My father was born in Warrington and was the first child of Francis (Frank) and Elsie (Bate) Lynskey. My Grandfather, Frank Lynskey was born in St Helens Merseyside in 1903, the youngest of 13 children of Martin and Anne (Jordan) Lynskey. Martin was a farm labourer. As far as we are aware Francis was the only one of his siblings to be born in England, so the family must have come over from Ireland at the beginning of the 20th Century. Other than the fact that my Great Grandmother had connections with the family name Machin, I don't have any more information. Can anyone out there fill me in? I can be contacted at s.m.slawson@dl.ac.uk and would love to hear from you.
