The Irish potato famine was in the 1840 s. It is recorded that the Vikings had already invaded Ireland in the 700 s AD.
Amanda laws smego
Grandmother told me Laws came from the old country when their potato crops failed. Meaning IRISH. But also said we have ancestors
In kilts lol SCOTTISH
During the Anglo-Saxon middle period 800s AD the Vikings occupied part of East Anglia. That part was called Danelaw, at that time. I wonder if the name Law could have derived from there?
im of chinese origin and Law goes back to my grandfather's father living in Hong Kong so im confused
I agree with John Law though.. 'Law' surname obviously originated from Scotland and England.
The Law`s were part of the McClaren clan and many migrated south into Northern England and beyond. Theer is reference to the Barons Lawson and Law in Northumbria.

I believe it's from english or scottish origins
Well this is interesting I was just looking up my last name and here it's possible we might be distant cousins... Kinda cool... ^_^
If so, Danish, Norwegian or Swedish?
I was wondering, is this surname (Law) of Scandinavian origin?
I believe so. My family history is of Swedish and Irish decent.
can't rightly tell whether this is my family or not...
