In Reply to: Re: Namcy Marne (Marron?) Ahoghill, Ireland by Irene Marnell of 5

During my ten year One Name Study of the name Marnell, I have been told, but have not been able to verify, that the Anglo Norman name Marnell is derived from the word Marne, an area in Northern France, which is where the French Marnells were from before their arrival in England in the Norman invasion of 1066, and their subsequent arrival in Ireland in the 12th century. I see you are aware of the Kilkenny and Tipperary Marnells but would be glad of any information you have on the Galway Marnells.
