Lord I've never seen so many McConnell's in the same place!!!!
Hi, I note in your article that you date the first known recording of the name as 1649. However, in Sir David Lyndsay's play, "Ane Pleasnt Satyre of The Thrie Estaitis" first written in 1540 for James V and revised for performance under Mary of Guise in 1552, the Pardoner in the Interlude refers to, "...Of Collin's Cow here is ane horn, For eating of McConnal's corn was slain into Balquidder." Are you familiar with this tale? Or do you know it's origin before Lyndsay?

Here's what the book called "Kintyre Families" by Angus Martin, published in 2011, has to say about Conley, a name very close to Connell (the "Mc" means "son of"), with "chonnel" appearing in the earlier forms of the Conley name: "Earlier Mcilchonnelie, Mcilchonalie,etc." "[The] Gaelic 'Mac ille Chonalaich' has been suggested locally, but SoS (p 167) [Surnames of Scotland, by G F Black, 1993 Edition, Edinburgh], reliably or otherwise, derives the name from 'Mac Donnshleibhe', See KSC, p163 [Kintyre in the 17th Century, by Andrew McKerral, Edinburgh 1948]"
Hi, my name's Annie McConnell. My Gramps' last name was McConnell, and apparently most of our family came from Cork County as well! We have this huge book that someone in our family made and it's full of information on the family and clans and whatnot. It starts off with the first McConnell and lists all the generations up till about five years ago. I'm sure there isn't every McConnell in there, but it must be close. It states that, at some point (I'm terrible with dates) some McConnell's moved from Cork County to a place in Ottawa/Ontario and then eventually spread out around the rest of Canada and America. I would have plenty more info if had the actual book!
