>Can anyone tell me where the Irvines lived in N IRE. I've been told but have never proven that they lived in the CO Antrim in the 1600's and early 1700's.
I'm sure there were some there. The border clan was dispersed in
the early 1600's by King James. They fled to Uslter. It wasn't
NI then. NI didn't exist till 1922. I have Irwins in Northern
England. McLaysaght says some ERWIN/IRWINs are Irish: a sept
of O'Hirwin (o hEireamnoin ) in Offaly, but most are of planter
stock, he agrees. Bell "Book of Ulster Surnames" also says they
were in Ireland in the early 1600's.
Have you checked the Hearth Money rolls and Pendar??
