While research would suggest that the sur-name "IRISH" indicates a lineage that we could trace back to Ireland, it looks like in our family's case, that isn't the fact. A great place to start learning about the IRISH family is looking at JOHN IRISH (b.1600) who is considered to be the founder of the IRISH family in the United States. Learn more about him and his long line a ancestors, stretching back all the way to ADAM DE IREYS (b.1070) who fought in the First Crusade. More information coming soon!
