I live in Alaska at the moment but I know for a fact that my fathers family came from Irerland and England. Also my mother was born in Alaska but her mom is Scottish and Polish and dad is German.
My Reynolds family tree has been located in Nottinghamshire for the last one hundred and seventy years. I have not traced back further than that.

From Australia ( I Will Defend my Right ) Hi to all the REYNOLDS Clan all over the World hope your all well Laurie Reynolds.
i'm so excited about my search of the Reynolds family . i'm still searching how did of the Reynolds family end up in South Africa .
Is irish unless they took the soup
my ancestors were canadian. but i guess my last name must be irish because my first name is.
I read that a lot of the original Reynolds families in New England defected to Canada when the American Revolution broke out. They were "kinda Loyalists."
Yes Alex. Most Reynolds in NE were reported to be Torry's. I never heard about detecting to Canada though.
My dad was born on 27th May 1912 mother Beatrice Reynolds In Kingston on Thames no fathers name on birth certificate That is the only information I have. Doreen
To all those in our mighty clan, South Leitrim is our ancestoral home. Though our castle at Muintir Eolais on the shores of Lough Rynn may be in ruin, perhaps one day a more fortunate member of our now vast and wonderful family shall endevour to restore it to a portion of it's former glory.
All my Reynolds' ancestors came from Leitrim and the surrounding counties.
long live the reynolds
Does anyone know miss Alezae Reynolds? She died on the SS Pacific on November 4 1875? Young lady?
This past weekend, I researched my coworker/friend's geneology on the "Reynolds" side of her family. We discovered that her 24th great-grandfather was Reginald de Dunstanville of Castle Combe, in Wiltshire, England. Reginald (or Reinald if you will) was an illegitimate son of King Henry I of England. I used familysearch.org to get this information. Its free and you don't have to sign up or pay to use it!
My great great grandmother was Katherine Reynolds married to James Kennedy of Tipperary Co. Ireland. I cannot locate either great great grandparents birth records as I don't know their parent's names. I have six possible James Kennedy record of birth but nothing on Reynolds and know little about where her home may have been in Ireland.
I've been looking into the origins of the Reynolds name, as mentioned it comes from old Norse and from what I've read it might come from around the area of Alesund in Norway. Can anyone confirm this or know of where I can read more? There seems to be disputes about the Norman connection as the origins of the Norman Vikings is disputed.
I don't really think it is a Norwegian surname. If it was the people died out long ago.
My Reynolds' ancestors originate from Dublin & Mayo.
