Your Edmund Fanning sounds a lot like the Edmund Fanning I'm looking for, with a few changes. My Edmund Fanning was born in 1620 in Ireland (I don't know for certain where), married an Ellen in 1649, and had a daughter, Marie (my ancestress), in 1665 in Connecticut. There is a book on the families of Stonington, CT, that lists Edmund's father as Francis Fanning, who was Sheriff of Limerick in 1632 and Mayor in 1644, and who was transported (?) to Connaught after fighting Cromwell's army. The Fannings apparently go back in Limerick for quite a while as sheriffs and mayors. I'm still looking for proof--where did you find your sources?
