FARNAN Family History

Recorded as Farnan, Farnin, Farning, Farnon, Farahan, Farriname, Farnane, Fernan, Fernon and probably others, this is claimed to be a surname of Irish origins. This may well be so, although there is just a possiblity that it may be French, and a variant of Faron or Farnoux, a nickname surname for a miller of flour. What is certainly true is that it has been recorded in Irish church registers since the Stuart period as shown below, and it has been claimed that a family called Farnon of Ardstraw in County Tyrone held the position of erenagh since medieval times.
