CLANCY Family History

This famous Irish clan surname originally MacClancy, has a world wide reputation for being in the thick of the fighting. This is not perhaps surprising as the name would seem to translate as 'the son of the red warrior' from the gaelic 'Mac Fhlannchaidh'. Certainly there has hardly been a time in Irish history, when a Clancy has not been involved. There are two main septs, the most important being centred on County Clare, and the village of Cahermacclancy, and to some extent the surrounding counties of Galway and Tipperary, whilst a smaller group can be found in Co Leitrim. The original 'Mac' prefix was lost in the 17th century, but of late some nameholders have readopted it...

My grandfather was from Ireland and came to England and joined the Royal Marines - he was, I believe, a PTR - physical training instructor. He died in Plymouth in Devon in 1955 - 1960? Not too sure. He was with Florence White - Scottish, when he died. There were 4 children, Violet, Joan, Jackson and Lonsdale all with the surname White. I do not know what my grandfather's first name was - I do know his family name was Clancy. He was really into boxing - hence his sons were named Jackson and Lonsdale. I am Jacqueline. I wonder if anyone has any information?

My 4th Great Grandmother Hanorah Clancy, born in about 1799, married Patrick Balton, also born about 1799. They both moved to America and lived in Iowa. Any further information on both of these families would be greatly appreciated.
