See one of our recent Ireland101 Tribe Gatherings

Of Wales’ 100 islands, Anglesey is the biggest by far – and arguably, the most exciting to visit. Situated off the north west coast of Wales in the Irish Sea, it is connected to the mainland by two historic bridges.

The majority of Anglesey’s 125-mile coastline is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), boasting towering cliffs, pristine beaches and many species of seabirds. Paired with the beautiful sights inland – from lakes, estuaries and marshes to grassy dunes and mossy headlands – it’s no surprise Anglesey is such a popular spot with tourists from across Britain and beyond. 

There’s history here too – from ancient ruins and castles to quirky 19th century wonders. All visitors travelling to Anglesey by land cross either Britannia Bridge (road and rail) or Menai Suspension Bridge (road only) – the latter is particularly striking thanks to its seven stone arches. Both bridges first opened in the 1800s and the Thomas Telford Centre in Menai Bridge town features exhibitions about the bridges’ history.

Near Britannia Bridge (and just five minute’s drive from Menai Bridge) lies a village with the second longest one-word place name in the world:  Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. The name is said to have been lengthened significantly in the 19th century to attract tourists to the area, and it worked; even today many visitors stop in Llanfairpwll to take photographs of the train station sign.

Isle of Anglesey Lighthouse Wales

One of the prettiest towns in Anglesey has to be the walled town of Beaumaris. Here you will find moated Beaumaris castle, the final castle built during King Edward I’s conquest of north Wales. It was never fully completed, but the World Heritage Site is considered one of the best examples of late 13th century architecture in Europe. Visitors can explore the grounds, spotting arrow slits and self-explanatory ‘murder holes’. Nearby Ye Olde Bull’s Head Inn is a fine choice for dinner or an overnight stay; both Dr Samuel Johnson and Charles Dickens are known to have stayed there, and almost all the rooms are named after Dickens characters.


Prefer your castles a little more hospitable, and perhaps a little more French? Château Rhianfa on the east coast was built by the Baronet of Bodelwyddan in 1849; he and his wife were inspired by their travels in the Loire Valley. Today the castle is a romantic wedding venue and four-star hotel with a fine dining restaurant on site. Other grand houses worth a visit include Henllys Hall, for its 18-hole golf course and and lessons from a PGA pro, complete with sea and mountain views; and Plas Newydd House and Gardens, where art-lovers will find a collection of Rex Whistler paintings. There are two neolithic burial chambers within the grounds, although they’re not accessible to visitors. However nearby Bryn Celli Ddu Burial Chamber is open to the public, and you can even enter the prehistoric tomb.

Caemaes Wales

Anglesey’s award-winning beaches demand attention – take your pick from the likes of family-friendly Bellech; windsurfer haven Rhosneigr Beach; or dune-backed Newborough Beach, where you can access the fascinating Llanddwyn Island, if the tide is right. 

Hikers and cyclists are spoilt for choice on Anglesey – particularly when it comes to wildlife spotting. 

Holyhead Mountain in particular attracts lots of bird life. Up here you’ll find South Stack Cliffs RSPB Reserve in Holyhead, which is known for its magnificent (and easily accessible) views. Clear and organised paths help hikers navigate the rugged terrain, but there are also roads to the highest points if you are less mobile. In addition to the standard seagulls, you might be able to spot some falcons or if you’re lucky, dolphins! Lligwy Bay and Puffin Island are known for their seal populations, too.

101 Must-Do’ ways to live your regional connection.

Our 101 team have been working with local tourism, business, community and Council initiatives to bring you some of the best ways for you to live your connection to Isle_of_anglesey.

According to the Book "History of Alabama and Her People" by Albert Burton Moore, my 4th Great Grandfather, James M. Smith had origins in Ireland. Unfortunately, the book never clearly states where from. He was born c. 1778, but isn't clear on the place. His first born, Daniel Ulysses Smith was born in Georgia,USA while all other children were born in Alabama, USA. Is anyone familiar with this family?

My 2nd great grandparents came from Ireland to the USA. do not know when/what port they immigrated to or when/where they were married, but the first census I find them in is as Thomas Williams and Mrs. 1860 Leavenworth Kansas. The Mrs. is Mary Fling b. 1825, 1830 or 1835 varies on census' and Thomas Williams either 1830 or 1834. First son was James born in 1855 Bloomington, Ill, Daughter Winifred b. 1857 and Charles Arthur my great grandfather 1858. The census' list them both as from Ireland, until 1930 my great grandfather lists his parents as from Northern Ireland. The only thing I know about Thomas Williams comes from the 1860 Federal Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas and the 1865 State Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas, I never find him again after that date. I have not located his immigration information or marrige information. Coincidentally there is a Thomas Williams and Anne Eliza Fling Williams in 1860 Bloomington, Illnois Census, they have a son Charles Edward, but dates and ages Do Not match and can't be in two places at one time. would love to learn where they were both from in Ireland.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Brown story begins in pre-history Ireland but relatives will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. A descendant and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

James Taylor came from Ireland. Born about 1848. The story indicates he came from Cork but had Scottish roots. DNA testing supports this claim. Cork, Clare, Donegal, Dublin, Antrim, Mayo, Laois, Glasgow, London, and a few other locations showed up. He married Sarah Thompson who came from Belfast. They emigrated to the states and settled in Southbend, Indiana. They had Harry/Henry Taylor who is my great grandfather. He ended up in Manasquan, NJ. Several members of the family remain in that area. James Taylor died 4 Nov 1882 South Bend, St Joseph, Indiana, USA. Unfortunately, names like James Taylor and Sarah Thompson prove difficult to trace.

The Taylor side of our family is a huge mystery, I am not sure if my family has any Irish roots but I would like to find out about my Great Grandfather Richard Charles Taylor and his family line. He was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa on the 17th January 1886. He died in Johannesburg on the 30th March 1967. He was married to Rhoda Stuart Rowe (Born 1889, Cornwall). They had 6/7 children (Annie, George, ~Ronald, Dorothy, Norman, Richard and ?) and one of them was my grandfather Ronald Edwin Taylor. Richard was a Engine Driver for S.A.R.&H. And that is all I know. If anyone has information on him or his family and maybe where his ancestry comes from, I would be greatly appreciative.

(Part 1 of 3) The Taylor name can be found in the British Isles, but one of its origins according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. One Taylor story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. This Taylor surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwynedd in Brittany. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Taylor story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

My 5th great grandfather George Martin reportedly sailed to Chester, PA in America from Ireland some time in the mid-1700s, before marrying Annah Cloud in Wilmington, DE in 1761 and settling on a farm in Hampshire County, WVA where he lived and raised a family until his death in 1806. I have not been able to trace his country of origin or parents across the pond and was hoping somebody on this site may have information on George Martin to share. My family lore says our Martin line were Scotch-Irish, which I take to mean a family from Northern Ireland that originally came from England or Scotland. My ancestry goal has been to trace each branch of my tree back to their country of origin. I have done that for all the women who married into my Martin line, but not yet for my Martins.

Hello members. I am trying to locate family members in Ireland, or at least figure out who they are. My paternal grandfather, William John Robinson, emigrated to Canada from Ireland in 1928. He was born to Irish parents in 1897 while they were visiting (?) in Scotland. He was raised in Ireland. As an adult he was apprenticing as a tailor and worked at his uncle's store in Fivemiletown. He worked as a tailor in Regina, SK, Cda until his retirement. He died in Regina in 1967. He came to Canada with 2 siblings (that I know of) Betty and Joe. I know he had other siblings in Ireland but I do not know their names or his parents names so it is proving very challenging to do any research into his family. If anyone has any leads I would be th

(Part 1 of 3) The Robinson name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Robinson story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Robinson surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Robinson story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

'Wright' is still used in Scottish English in the original meaning of 'skilled woodworker'. The Incorporation of Wrights of the Trades House of Glasgow, and the Incorporation of Wrights and Masons of Edinburgh Trades retain the word in its original meaning in their role of promoting the woodworking trade. Wright is also an anglicised version of the Scots Gaelic clan name "MacIntyre" or "Mac an t-Saoir", meaning "son of the wright" (son of the carpenter). In Ireland, the native Gaelic Mac an Cheairt sept of County Mayo occasionally changed their name to Wright. This is a literal translation meaning, "son of the right or righteous".

My great great grandfather was Gerald “Jerry” Green. I think he was born in Ireland around 1820. He came to the United States and settled in Houghton and Keweenaw counties in Michigan maybe around 1837. He and his wife were killed in mid 1860’s or early 1870. He was married and had three children. One was called Rose, she ended up being a teacher. One was called Abram or Abraham (my great grandfather), and there was another boy. Both boys were adopted after their parents deaths. I am thinking Rose may have been older because she was taken in by a family but not adopted. Does anyone have any information to this Green family. I don’t know anything about his parents, etc. or the wife’s name.

(Part 1 of 3) The Green name is found in the British Isles, but one of its origins according to DNA is from the north-west coast of the Emerald Island. One Green story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup A1] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. This Green surname origin is from a Northern Ui Neill [R1b-L513] tribe. The Cenél Eoghan and the tribes of Donegal conquered much of Ulster (Derry and Tyrone).

(Part 2 of 3) Cenél Eoghan will expand across northern Ireland with their cousins Cenél Conaill and the Northern Ui Neill between 500-800 BCE. The clans of Finn Valley have the same DNA as people from Gwened in Brittany. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Green story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Scotland as they form part of the Dalriada. Descendants of their tribe will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Being born Welsh and having Welsh blood on my maternal side, this is not correct for all Roberts families. Fixed surnames in Wales is a late development for the majority. The patronymic system meant that the son often took the first name of the father as last name of the son. So it was only from when Henry VIII decreed that fixed names should be used in Wales did fixed names started to became the norm. This took quite some time. Thus not all Roberts's even in Wales are related. Roberts is not only a Welsh name, but English Sottish and Irish.

(Part 1 of 3) The Edwards name has a long history in British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Edwards story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Edwards surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Edwards story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. An ancestor and many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

(Part 1 of 3) The Edwards name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Edwards story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup C1] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Edwards surname origin is possibly from the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who found the Kingdom of Brycheiniog, Wales around 300 CE.

Hello out there! Trying to find info on John Morris who arrived in Australia in 1840 (from County Tyrone Ireland.. Donegal I think). He took up a large piece of land in the Junee NSW area and farmed sheep. His property was called Geralgambeth. As far as I'm aware, he was a free settler. I have a fair bit of info on his life after he arrived but none prior. Any snippets would be greatly appreciated. Regards

However my knowledge of the Morgan surname has only taken me as far as London, England, in a time about 1892, as then is when my grand father Frank (Francis) Morgan was born. I lose the trail there though, because I am not sure of his birth records, or the names of his parents. He was found on the streets of London, practically a street urchin or orphan, and shipped to Canada about age 10 (in 1903) to be adopted or indentured with a Canadian family. This was done through the Catholic church based in Ottawa, Canada. He later married and raise

My Ggrandfather Tom Price told his Daughter , when he got older, that his real surname was Powell. He changed his name when young , to go to sea as his Mother wouldn’t permit him to go. The family name has gone by Price all these years, I know he had Brothers, not sure of any Sisters, as 1 Brother came to visit from N.Wales on his motorcycle when my Mother, his GDaughter was around 13 yrs old. She lived with them for a while. On the census he said he was from Bodwrog, Anglesey. If there is anyone that has heard of him, Evan Tom Price , from relatives , I would love to hear from you. Cannot find out anything else except what’s on census,

(Part 1 of 3) The Powell name has a long history in Wales, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Powell story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Powell surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Powell story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. Many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Ireland? When I started getting interested in my family history in the 1970s, the accepted story was that it was a Flemish name and came over with weavers escaping persecution. My own line goes back to the Briton Ferry area (so far).

I forgot to ask the significance of the Tudor names in I believe the 15th and 16th centuries. I did all the research on my own so I hope it is not confusing. I hope I have family in Ireland and Wales. This connection is so very dear to me. Thank you.

Hi. Found a few connections with Ireland, although I couldn't ascertain which are or region. After 1800. most links started to mesh with Anglesley. Wales and Scottish historical names and links. After early 1800, Welsh was what I predominately seemed to find. I am so excited. My great grandfather, Warren Mayo Jenkins is the last known to me of our regional Jenkins lineage. He passed in 1969. I am 57. I miss him.

Hi, I'm trying to track down my Ellis ancestors in Co Longford and Co Leitrim in Ireland. The family may have originated in Wales and immigrated to Ireland in the 17th or 18th centuries, although this is not certain. There is a possibility that they were tenants or employees of Lord Longford as there is family folklore suggesting such connection. A John Ellis b.C1736. d C1822, my 4th GGF, lived at Newtown Forbes in Co Longford, his son John C1781 to C1844 and his grandson Henry b. C1821 who married one Mary Kirwan b C1815. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Barry Heeran

Wynneth (Peters) Mullins

I know very little about my Peters ancestors. There were only 3 Peters generations before me in the US. My grandfather Claude had a twin sister named Maude. My father's name was also Claude and my brother was Claude Peters Jr. The Peters family has lived in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas over the years. My name is Wynneth Faye (Peters) Mullins. My maiden name is Peters. I know very little about the Peters family. I do know that my 3x great grand parents are Michael (20 Sep. 1796, Offerlane, Laois, Ireland) and (Seram) Sally (Egan) Peters (22 May 1807, Drum, Roscommon, Ireland). They lived in Tipperary. Their 4 children Lucy (12 Nov. 1832), John (22 Mar. 1835), James (10 July 1837) and Thomas Peters (18 Jan. 1839) were born in the years between 1832 – 1839 and were baptized in the Roman Catholic Church, Dovea, Drom & Inch, Tipperary, Ireland. St Mary's Catholic Church in Drom was built in 1829 for Friar Thomas Mullaney, whose name is inscribed over the front door. I have found the information of each child’s baptism in this church. I believe that the parents of Michael is William and Sally (McEvoy) Peters. And I believe the parents of Sally Egan are David and Sally (Sara or Seram) (Jackson) Egan and I believe Sally had 7 brothers and sisters total. Sally Peters born 22 May 1807 in Ireland. Thomas Peters was born 18 January 1839 in Ireland. The relationship between Sally and Thomas is mother and son. They sailed from Liverpool, England to the Castle Garden, the Port of New York on the Ship: The Shamrock. Both listed as servants in the ship register. They were listed as Passenger #188 Sally Peters, age 48. #189 Thomas Peters, age 17. The voyage left Liverpool, England 15 May 1856 and arrived in New York 9 June 1856. The next information is that Thomas came to Texas and married Mary Elizabeth Hogland or Hoagland in Paris, Lamar County, Texas on 05 August 1859. Thomas was in the United States 3 years before he married Mary. I wonder how they met and if they knew each other before Thomas arrived in the US. I have never found Sally Peters in the US. I don’t know if she brought Thomas here and then went back to Ireland or if she stayed in the US and perhaps married someone. I have so much history about our family from the time Thomas and his mother came to the US and up to now. I would love to share all this information with you if you would only let me know about you and the family that stayed in Ireland or where ever they moved to. Please contact me. I would love to know all about the family that stayed in Europe. Thank you.

He is famous to our Pierce clan although does not meet the standard! :) I have been desperately trying to find his immigration or naturalization papers to show when he came to the US. Upon his death it states that he resided in the US for 43 or so years. He must have arrived as a teen and met and married Johanna Boyle or Doyle. This is what I have thus far: Stephen F Pierce was born in Ireland, the son of Jennie (possibly Mary Jane) and Frank or Francis Pierce. Stephen married Johanna Doyle (or Boyle). They had seven children in 18 years. He died on June 24, 1906, in Camden, New Jersey ..... I'm happy to pay for help in finding the county or area in Ireland where they came from. I have done DNA both on Ancestry and Uploaded to GedMatch ... My fathers kit number is A128092 John Pierce. My father is 84 this year and is desperately looking for some 'hope' that he will find more about his family roots! :) Thanks, Rebecca Pierce....
