Classification: Query
Surnames: Faloon, Falloon, Spence
I visited County Antrim, Northern Ireland this past summer. My ancestor was Joseph Faloon, born in 1789 in
County Antrim , Ireland to William & Jane(Spence) Faloon.
He emigrated via Belfast to North America ~1808-1809. He
was a Scotch-Irish Presbyterian. I have found through old
census records that My Faloons were probably from Ballinderry, County Antrim. There were also a considerable number of Fal(l)oons in Aghalee, Aghagallon, Crumlin, Doagh,
Dundrod & Dunadry, and Ballymoney, County Antrim, as well
as in Cos. Londonderry(Coleraine), Tyrone, Armagh, Down, and
Monaghan. As for Spences, these were probably from the
Magheragall/Lisburn area. I found various graves of Faloons in the Ballinderry Middle Presbyterian Church(1668) churchyard(Upper Ballinderry), as well as in Aghalee. And there is a Mrs. Rosaleen Faloon(who is Catholic) who runs
a Bed & Breakfast @ 9 Crumlin Road, Lower Ballinderry, where
I spent 3 nights whilst on my trip. I believe that the surname Faloon traces back to Scotland, and as evidence have
found via the Web that variations of Faloon exist in Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, and Fifeshire, Scotland; these being:
Falloon, Faloon, Fulloon, and Fulloun. I also have connections with County Down: Philpots and Morrows from the
Hillsborough/Annahilt region, and Quails from Downpatrick.
Again, all were Presbyterians of Scottish origins, and these
intermarried with the Faloons of Antrim. Any additional info
or thoughts would be much appreciated.
