Re: Fanning / Finning

In Reply to: Re: Fanning / Finning by Kate Finning of 1835

In response, I have some Fanning research (I am a Fanning thru my paternal gmother) I am listing the First three gens claims to follow Domingus. After the third gen (James) settled in LI, they pretty much stayed there up and until now.

1st Gen
Edmund Fanning

Born: 1620 in Gortfree, Ballingarry, Tipperary, Ireland
Died: DEC 1683 in Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut
Military Service: "King Phillip War" - 1675-76 (with sons)

Wife: Ellen Butler

Children:
1. James Fanning

2. Edmund Fanning (Margaret Billings)
       b. 1651, Limerick, Limerick, Ireland

3. Margaret Fanning
       b. 1653, Stonington, New London Co., Connecticut; d. April 29, 1664

4. Thomas Fanning, (Francis Ellis)

       b. 1655, Fisher's Island; d. April 27, 1704, Stonington, New London Co.,        Connecticut.

5. John Fanning
       b. 1657, Fisher's Island

6. William Fanning (killed by Indians at Poquchannach)
       b. 1659, Fisher's Island

7. Mary Fanning (Benjamin Hewitt)
       b. April 28, 1665, New London, New London Co., Connecticut; d. December 14, 1743
Frances born Stonington Conn - 19 Aug 1689 - married Timothy Van Pelt
       This ancestor is a wily one, as he has many stories, none of which can be properly verified. One "tradition" tells of his escape from Dublin ca 1641 at the time of the great rebellion in which 100,000 Protestants fell victims to the fury of the Roman Catholics, which tradition followed him in his travels over the ocean and to America, where after a few years he located himself in that part of New London, now Groton, in 1652. Later he removed to Stonington where he lived the remainder of his life.
       Another "tradition" would make him a descendant of Dominicus Fanning, who was mayor of a city in Ireland under Charles the First, and was taken prisoner at the battle of Drogheda in 1649. All the garrison except Domincus was put to the sword. Domincus was beheaded by Cromwell, and his head was stuck on a pole at the principal gate of the city. Domincus' property was confiscated, because when Charles the First made a proclamation of peace, he was a member of the Irish Council. Domincus advised not to accept the proclamation unless the British government would secure to the Irish their religion, their property, and their lives. Domincus' son was born in Kilkenny, Ireland and married Catherine Hayn, daughter of Hugh, Earl Connaught, and emigrated to this country with two sons, Thomas and William, and settled in Stonington. This tradition is taken from the old tombstone at Riverhead, Long Island, New York, and is claimed by many as the ancestral connecting line of Edmund Fanning, who died in December, 1683. Much of the information on the tombstone is know known to be incorrect.
