FALLON Family History

This interesting name has two possible origin, the first being that it is a variant of the English name "Fuller", from the Old English pre 7th Century "fullere", a name given to "a dresser of cloth". The second possible origin is Irish, from the Anglicized form of the Gaelic "O' Fallamhain", a descendant of Fallamhan, which was a byname meaning "leader", from "follamhnas, supremacy. Fuller is first recorded in 1219 (Assize Rolls, Yorkshire) as Roger Fulur, and Fallon, although a common name in Ireland, was not recorded there until 1585 (Dysart, Athlone, County Roscommon). The surname can be found as Fallon, O' Fallon, O' Fallo(w)ne, Fal(l)oon and Fallen, and can also be found as Hallon, from the Gaelic O' Fhallamhain...

Katrina. October 24, 2019 Only that your ancestor constable “John” was actually named LUKE (as was his son and, according to your description, grandson). The constable Luke Fallon was retired 1st Royal Scots Regiment military. He was born in County Westmeath, Athlone Ireland on the Shannon River just south of Lough Ree.

Hi everyone searching for the origin of John Bryant Fallon according to his marriage certificate 1862 he was born in 1836 where is the question. One of the stories from folklore is he jumped ship in Western Australia whether he was a seaman or passenger is not known & he does not appear on immigration records as with many other steerage passengers in the 1850s

Hi, fellow Fallons, My father was Lewis Fallon, born in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, in 1928, lived most of his life in Montreal, Quebec, son of Luke A. Fallon who was the son of Constable John Fallon from somewhere in Ireland. Luke Fallon had 3 other sons, Raymond of St-John's, Newfoundland, Eric, of Harbour Grace, and Reginald of Gander, Newfoundland.That's as far back as I go. Does anyone have more information about the Irish branch of the family, please? Thanks.
