Canning

Origen: Normando. Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Canning is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the region of Wiltshire.

Canning es un apellido común en Inglaterra, que aparece en Irlanda como la forma anglicanizada de los apellidos gaélicos O´Cannon y Cunneen. O´Hart dice que descienden de Heremon, hijo de Milesio, por Aodh (ó Hugh) Munderg, nieto de Flaithertach, que fue el 159 monarca de Irlanda, y que es el Nº 96 en el pedigree de los Mulroy. En una nota agrega que George Canning, que fué el 1er Ministro de Gran Bretaña, era de esta familia, hijo de otro George Canning y de su esposa, Mary Ann Costello, el que murió el 11.4.1771 en Londres, es decir cuando su hijo tenia 1 año de edad. George Canning fué quien en 1825 reconoció la independencia Argentina. Encontramos solo a una persona en el Libro de entradas al puerto de BsAs, que llegó el 4.7.1844.

Variantes: Canning, Cannings, Cannyng, Caning, Canings, Canyng y otros.

The name Cannon is distributed throughout most of Ireland's counties but is most apparent in the counties of Donegal, Leitrim and Mayo. Ui Canannain was the ancestral name of the Cannons and TirConnel (all of Co. Donegal and part of County Derry) was the "Land of the Cannons". By the early 1600's the name of Ui Canannain had been anglicised to O'Cannon. Further anglicisation took place during the Penal Laws in the late 1700's and early 1800's and the name in Co. Donegal became Cannon. However in the east of the county and in the neighbouring counties of Derry and Tyrone the name, being spelt phonetically, became Canning. O'Cannon, Cannon, Cannan, Canon, Canning are anglicised versions of the name Ui Canannain. The Cannons are descended from two of Ireland's most renowned Kings: Conn of the Hundred Battles and Niall of the Nine Hostages. The O'Cannons have been described as "Ancient Princes of TirConnel" and "Valiant Chiefs" However their 350 year dynasty in TirConnel ended around 1250.
