Introduction to Dennison Zone

Welcome ...

to the website dedicated to the descendants of that branch of the Denniston family who arrived in the parish of Mevagh (Carrigart, Downings and Glen area) in County Donegal, Ireland around 1740. Since then the family has spread throughout Ireland, England, Scotland, The United States and beyond.

Much work has been done over the years by many people to trace the lineage of the current family members. So far, connected families include those listed on the menu on the left but also BoyleDuffys, Wilsons, Berkerys, McFaddens, Colls, Coyles, Kellys, Boyces, Ferrys, Friels, Dalys, Walshes, Sheridans and Harkins to name but a few. Even though a lot is known, there is much more to be discovered. We hope that by making the information in this web site freely available, others will add to it and help us to fill in some more of the jigsaw.

We would like to make a special mention of the late Dr. Leslie W. Lucas who was responsible for unearthing and collating some of the early material and who put much of it into context in his books on Mevagh.

We welcome any feedback so please get in touch (note email addresses are not in standard format to minimise spam).
