Given the number of Fanning marriages  it is clear that there were a lot of Fanning families living in Loughmore during the period 1801 -1882. So far this area has by far the greatest number of Fannings living in it.

That said, I have yet to look through the Thurles records, where I suspect there are even more Fannings.

Templemore Fanning Marriage Records Co Tipperary 1807- 1849

Templemore & Castleiny Catholic Parish Co Tipperary

There were very few Fanning marriages or Fanning witnesses in this parish from 1807 to 1849 although there are gaps in the records.

The dates covered are 15 Nov 1897 to 13 Jan 1820 & 30 Nov 1809 to 23 Oct 1849.

There were however a number of marriages to soldiers no doubt due to the military barracks at Templemore. None involving Fannings.

In the early records addresses and sometimes occupations were also recorded.

Places where the marriage took place are given, most likely the bride’s home.

Borrisoleigh Fanning Marriage Records Co Tipperary, 1814-1880

Borrisoleigh Catholic Parish Co Tipperary Ireland

Thought I would look at the marriage records on nli for Fanning marriages in Borrisoleigh Parish.  “The parish of Borrisoleigh, spreads over 14,215 acres of lush pastures and rolling hills in the north of the county of Tipperary. ” (borrisoleigh.ie)

Borrisoleigh Co Tipperary
Glenkeen Old Cemetery Borrisoleigh

On the whole there were not so many marriages in this parish. Sometimes only one a month. February was the busiest month, probably because it was the slowest month for farmers. There seemed to be a lot of dispensations for close relationships given in this parish.

I hardly found any Fanning families in this parish, even though it is next to Drom & Inch Parish, where my ancestors came from. Looked for a description of this parish particularly its geography and came across this in Wikepedia:

“In October 1846, absentee landlord Lord Portarlington threw a banquet at the Temperance Hall in Borrisoleigh while the surrounding parish was suffering through the Potato Famine. He left a meager one hundred pound donation to the local Poor Relief Committee when he returned to England.”

In the early records the addresses of both bride and groom are given and the records are fairly easy to decipher.

The records for Drom & Inch online at nli which I have transcribed in this post are from1827-1881

Rootsireland has baptism records from 1809 -1900. I have included the Fanning Baptism records from Rootsireland from 1809 to 1827.

Civil birth records at irishgenealogy.ie start from 1864 and end with births over a  100 years ago.

Records with an asterisk are of Fannings that I am related to.

The priest has written in the margin the address of the couple, which is a big plus in searching for ancestors in these records. The handwriting is easy to read although they have their own shorthand for christian names and place names. Annfield is written as Annfd, the d being smaller and raised. Ballypatrick is shortened to Bally and a small raised k. Edmund or Edmond is shortened to Ed and a small raised m.

The spelling is also phonetic, so varies greatly. But you can read it all quite easily and there were not a lot of baptisms for this period.

The following are the places where the baptism took place. The priests spelt the same places in different ways: Annfield, Annfield bridge, Ardkeen, Arkeen, Balliduff, Ballinlon, Balinlonty, Ballypatrick, Barnane, Bawnoun, Bawnounah, Bawnourah, Boherleegh, Booladuff, Bouladuff, Bouliduff, Caulleys Town, Claykile, Claykyle, Cleighhayle, Cleighayte, Clonbeg, Clonbegg, Clonmore, Clonismullen, Coohane, Coohaun,  Coolgurt, Coolhawn, Currough, Dovea, Drom, Monroe, Feeleigh, Feileigh, Feleigh, Feileghah,  Feighlahah, Fishmoyne, Graig, Grove, Gurtdafinan, Gurtdalinan, Inch, Mahera Reigh,  Kerawn, Kill, Killahagan, Killahigan, Kille, Killefitmoon, Killoskahan,  Killoskehan, Killoskean, Kirane, Killvillecoris, Klekile, Knocka,  Lackindara, Lahra, Lara, Laraw, Lahraw, Lassina, Laught, Liscrea, Lissaroon, Lough,  Mickna, Mockna, Moher S, Monroe, Moonvoor, Mounvour, Moovoor, Mt Catherine, Pallas Hill, Rag, Rathmoy, Rorestown, Rordstown, Roridstown,  Rathlesty, Rathleasty, The Ragg,  Skachanarran,

Sometimes House is given as the address. I am assuming the mother and or child was too ill to be baptised at the church as was customary?

Drom & Inch Parish 1837

A few times the word “Chapel” is in the margin??

“Chapel” Drom & Inch 1837

These place names are from 1827, in the Parish of Drom & Inch.

Holycross & Ballycahill Fanning Baptism Records Co Tipperary 1835-1909


Holycross & Ballycahill Catholic Parish Co Tipperary

The Catholic Parish records on nli online go from 1835 to 1878. The Civil records for births, deaths and marriages start at 1864 so from then you should be able to find two records. Civil records are online and free at irishgenealogy.ie  Births up till 1916.

The most notable Fanning families and connections were between the Tuohy and McGraths and Long and Fanning women in Grange. Don’t as yet know if there is any connection between these Fanning women and Lissaroon.

I will follow this up as I seem to remember that they emigrated en mass and there is a web site researching all these families from here and Upperchurch who went to America permanently. Given that they all had young families and babies during the famine years it is no wonder they chose to leave and start anew in America.

Thomas Long & Catherine Fanning arrived in USA in 1852 via Canada with their children and settled in Fabius. Have a look at McGrath search.com and Upperchurch Arrivals which has information on Thomas Long and his family. Neighbours in Ireland by Michael McGraw, Austin, Texas and Clare Tuohy, Dublin, Ireland is well worth reading. Extremely well researched and fascinating. New material added.

Here are a few extracts from this site:
“Fanning (Fanning siblings and cousins) – Grange – All to New Orleans, LA

Bridget Fanning = Patrick McGrath

Thomas Fanning = Bridget Purcell

Amy Fanning = Patrick Ryan

Margaret Fanning

Honora Fanning = Patrick Purcell
Other McGraths

Patrick McGrath = Bridget Fanning
– to New Orleans, LA”

Thomas Long = Catherine Fanning (Grange) – to Tully, Cortland Co., NY via Canada
Tuohy (brothers) – Grange – remained in Ireland

William Tuohy = Mary Fanning

Patrick Tuohy = Bridget Fanning

James Tuohy = Amy Fanning

Patrick Tuohy (son of William Tuohy and Mary Fanning) – to Norwich, Chenango
Co., NY about 1874.”

“Four of the former occupants of Glenreaghmore immigrated to the U.S. Patt
Davorn left for Norwich, NY in early 1849. Malachy Ryan left about the same time and
settled in Troy, NY. Thomas Fanning left for New Orleans from Liverpool, England on
June 26, 1849.”

There is a lot more very detailed information on the Fanning families in Grange on this site.

In the Parish of Upperchurch I only found two Baptism records for Fanning families:

3 May 1834, John of John Fanning & Julian Ryan sp: Patrick & Mary Ryan

1 Dec 1846, Richard of James Fanning & Johanna Fitzgerald sp: Edmond Fitzgerald & Mary Fitzgerald

Priest’s writing and idiosyncratic spelling a challenge. But the big plus is that the address is given! Layer on in about the 1870s the priest has added the marriage details of the child being baptised. He must have taken a real interest in his parishioners and followed what happened to them. He only entered these details for some records not all by any means. Some marriages were in England, USA and Australia and Ireland. The only down side to the entries around this time is that blank pages and marriage details on extra paper at times obscures the entries.

In 1848 the number of births decreases noticeably, the famine had well and truly hit. Although the biggest drop in baptisms was in 1863.

These marriage records are from the Catholic Parish registers now online, free, at the National Library of Ireland site. 

For Drom and Inch at The National Library of Ireland online site there are marriage records from 5 May 1827 to 16 Oct 1880.

Rootsireland has earlier marriage records for this parish. For Drom and Inch they have marriage records from 1807 to 1880. I have included these records from Rootsireland from 1807 to 1827.

The Drom Catholic marriage registers are unusual in that a lot of the time the priest wrote the address in the margin and the entries are easy to read. The most frustrating aspect of the Irish parish marriage records of this time is that the parents’ names were not entered.

Marriages took place usually in the bride’s townland, so this address would be her family’s. These records are of use in finding female Fannings but of course the males were married in the woman’s townland so they are harder to track.

Often “House” was written in the margin. I am assuming this is because the marriage ceremony took place in their house rather than a chapel or church but I may be wrong. Let me know otherwise.

I am also including any marriages where a Fanning or Fannen or Fannon was a witness.

My Fanning ancestors came from Lissaroon and there was only one Fanning family in Lisaroon as far as I know. Lisaroon was/is a townland of 296 acres near Thurles. In Grifiths Valuations there are 31 entries for Lissaroon.

Patrick Fanning Lisdonowley Co Tipperary 1859-1910

Patrick came out to Australia in 1878 on the Highflyer. He was aged 18. He came out with his older brother Anthony. They arrived at Morton Bay in Queensland on Dec 2, 1878.

Anthony settled in Kempsey where he was a shopkeeper. He married Amelia Lovell. Both died of consumption or as we know it tuberculosis and are buried in West Kempsey cemetery. They had no children. Patrick was a bachelor when he died age 51.

I have been trying to find Patrick for a number of years. Another Fanning researcher contacted me and alerted me to a Patrick Fanning who was killed in Sydney in 1910. I wasn’t very confident that it could be him but to my delight I think it is Patrick Fanning son of Margaret Cantwell and Patrick Fanning of Lisdonowley.

I don’t have 100% proof, as his mother’s name is not listed on his death certificate but many facts do point to it being Patrick, brother of Anthony.

Patrick Fanning son of Patrick Fanning and Margaret Cantwell was born in Templtouhy Parish in Co Tipperary on 26 Oct 1859.

Below are the newspaper reports of the accidental death of a Patrick Fanning in Sydney in 1910.

What caught my eye here is that Patrick’s cousin is a James Cantwell. Patrick’s mother was Margaret Cantwell.

This James Cantwell died in 1926. His father listed as Anthony Cantwell and mother as Mary. He was a store man and lived in Macquarie Street Leichardt Sydney. I have not found out anything more on this James Cantwell and his family. But would like to know more of them if anyone has some information about this branch of the Cantwell family.

Microsoft Word - 8079174d.rtf

Patrick is listed as having been in NSW for 32 years which would have him arriving about 1879. His age is given as about 49 giving him a  probable  birth date of  1861. James his cousin was buried age 67 in June 1926 so born about 1859.

Both James Cantwell and Patrick Fanning are buried in Rookwood Catholic Cemetery. Patrick was buried there on 2 Jan 1911 and James Cantwell on 11 June 1926. James’ parents were Anthony and Mary Cantwell. Her maiden name was Stokes as listed on his marriage record.

The name Anthony occurs frequently in the Cantwell family tree but not in the Fanning ancestry. The father of James Cantwell was listed as Anthony Cantwell. So this may explain the naming of Patrick’s brother. Anthony Fanning,  may well have been named after his uncle or even his grandfather on his mother’s side.

I have researched the Cantwells of Moyne and believe that Margaret Cantwell, Patrick Fanning’s mother came from Ballyerk in Moyne and her parents were Anthony Cantwell and Bridget Carroll. This Anthony Cantwell died in 1858, age 72 and is buried in Two-Mile-Borris Old Cemetery.

Margaret Cantwell’s sister Ellen married Richard Cormack of Lissaroon and their son Anthony was listed as a cousin to the Fannings.

I also came across obituaries for Margaret Cantwell’s brother Patrick who I think came out to Melbourne Australia in 1879 on the Durham. He is listed as age 36, Irish and a labourer.

He died on Dec 19, 1908 in Sydney NSW Australia.  The index to his death record has his father listed as Anthony and mother as Bridget. He was buried in Waverley Cemetery Sydney. This Patrick Cantwell was the uncle of Anthony and Patrick Fanning of Lisdonowley.

John Eviston was the nephew of this Patrick Cantwell.

As there are two nieces who are nuns mentioned there were most likely more Cantwells who emigrated to Australia.

The Migration of the descendants of William Fanning of Co Kilkenny & Co Tipperary to Co Mayo & Leitrim and to North America

A.B.Reilly has been a genealogical researcher for almost sixty years with particular interests in the O’Reilly, Fanning and O’Brien families from Co Kilkenny, Co Tipperary & Co Mayo and the journeys of their descendants in Ireland and abroad.

It is with great pleasure that I publish this extensively researched genealogical paper.

Below is his documented research relating to the descendants of William Fanning of Co Kilkenny & Tipperary. This William Fanning died in 1590.

To Counties Mayo & Leitrim & On To North America

The progenitor of this family of Fannings was William Fannyng (sic), who owned land in the Barony
of Kells, [1] County Kilkenny in 1570. He is also recorded in 1570 having extensive land holdings
in the Manor of Killenaule, Barony of Slievardagh in County Tipperary. William Fannyng died in

William Fannyng may have been a kinsman of Oliver Fannynge who was granted lands in County Kilkenny
by Henry VIII in 1545 and in 1548[3]. Oliver Fannynge was of Kylry in the County of Kilkenny. [4]
He was mentioned as one holding land by knight’s service in the Manor of Knocktopher in 1570. [5]

All indications point to Co. Tipperary as the ancestral home of William Fannyng of Kells. His
estates were settled prior to his death with all of the Fannyng Trustees being from Co. Tipperary,
that is: James, son of Thomas Fannyng of Ballingtaggert, Co. Tipperary; Robert, son of Walter
Fannynge of Mohobber, Co. Tipperary & Richard Fannynge of Kappaghintallagarry. [7]

The Fanning family has ancient roots in Co. Kilkenny & Co. Tipperary. [8] John Fanning was the
Fanning recorded in Co. Tipperary on the 20th of November, 1285 [9] and again on the 20th of
1295. [10] Mohober, in the Parish of Lismalin, Barony of Compsey, County Tipperary, was for several
centuries principally a Fanning manor. [11] In addition to sons Thomas, Walter & Richard, William
Fannyng of Kells had two other known sons, James & William. Son, James Fanning, was born around
1555 and died before his father’s death in 1590. Son, William Fanning II, was born in 1565. His
date of death is unknown. [12]

William Fanning II had a son named James Ffaning who was born in 1589 in Knocktopher Parish, Co.
Kilkenny. [13] James Fanning was one of the Fannings who received a certificate of transplantation
after the Cromwellian confiscations of 1652. [14] He received this certificate in 1657 which
entitled him to settlement in Co. Leitrim. [15] He settled in the Parish of Fenagh, Co. Leitrim.
His estates in Co. Kilkenny were never restored to him. [16]

Thomas Fanning, son of James Ffaning, was born in 1625, in Co. Kilkenny. He married Mary
Mcloughlin of Co. Limerick. They both are believed to have died around 1660 in Co. Mayo. Nothing
is heard from them after the birth of their youngest son. [17] Thomas & Mary Mcloughlin Fanning had
two sons that are known. Their oldest son being James who was born abt. 1647 in Co. Kilkenny. [18]
This James Fannning was the grandfather of James Fanning who married Elizabeth and emigrated to
America. They settled in South Carolina around 1750. [19] They had a son, James, born November 28,
1739 who married Elizabeth Saffold on October 13, 1776. He died on November 4, 1803.[20] They have
a great number of descendants in the southern United States. Col. James Walker Fannin of Goliad,
Texas fame was a member of this family. However, the legitimacy of his birth is questioned.

The youngest son of Thomas & Mary Fanning was Loughlin Fanning was born in Co. Mayo after the
transplantation, in 1658. He married Ann O’Brien, daughter of John [21] [22] & Ann Elizabeth
(O’Reilly) O’Brien of Co. Leitrim, Oughterragh Parish. [23] Ann Elizabeth O’Reilly was the
daughter of John & Margaret (O’Reilly) O’Reilly of Ballymacadd, Co. Meath. John O’Reilly died Feb.,

This family of O’Briens were of Ballynalacken, Co. Clare and descend from Donal, a younger son of
Turlough Donn O’Brien who died in 1528. He was of the O’Briens, Kings of Thomond pedigree. [25]

The lineage comes down to 1. Donal O’Brien, who was known as Donal Bacach (“bacach:” Irish, lame):
second son of Teige-an-Chomhaid: m. Saibh, dau. of O’Loghlin, Prince of Burren then to 2. Connor
O’Brien, of Carruduff: third son of Donal Bacach O’Brien; m. Celia, dau. of O’Dea, Prince of
Ive-Fermaic. The lineage continues with 3. Donogh O’Brien, of Carruduff, who married Honora, dau.
of O’Hehir, lord of Ive-Cormaic. It continues on with 4. Dermod O’Brien, of Carruduff: son of
Donogh O’Brien, m. Eleanor, dau. of Teige MacMahon, of Dangan-an-Elly, in the barony of Moyarta,
Co. Clare. On to 5. Donal O’Brien, of Carruduff: son of Dermod O’Brien. In 1652, (see the “Books
of Survey and Distribution”) this Donal O’Brien lost his estate by the Cromwellian Settlement of
Ireland; he m. Honora, dau. of O’Connor of Corcomroe.

Donal & Honora O’Brien had a son, 6a. Brian, of Leitrim, [26] who, under the Act of Repeal passed
by King James II. in the Parliament held in Dublin, A.D. 1689, possessed himself of the Estate of
Carruduff, aforesaid. This Brian O’Brien m. Mary[27], dau. of Lochlin MacConsidine of Lac, in the
Co. Clare, Chief of his name. Torlogh O’Brien, of Leitrim: second son of Brian of Beatath-Corcick,
Esq. [28] (by Catherine, dau. of Jeoffry O’Connell, of Breantry, Esq., and sister of Colonel
Maurice O’Connell, who d.s.p.). Donal & Honora O’Brien’s second son was 6b. John O’Brien who
married Ann Elizabeth O’Reilly, dau. of John O’ Reilly. [29]

Loughlin & Ann (O’Brien) Fanning relocated from Co. Mayo to Co. Leitrim, where his grandfather
James Ffaning had settled and where the O’Briens had settled after the Cromwellian Confiscations.
Loughlin Fanning’s principal livelihood was farming. [30]

Loughlin and Ann (O’Brien) Fanning had the following known issue:

1. James Fanning born abt. 1683 in Connacht, Co. Mayo

2. Thomas Fanning born abt. 1687 in Connacht, Co. Mayo

3. Loughlin Fanning ( Jr.) b. abt. 1690 in Connacht, Co. Mayo [31]
4. Bryan Fanning b. abt. 1693 in Connacht, Greagh Townland, Fenagh Parish, Co. [32],
[33]Leitrim. He emigrated to America settling in Virginia. [34]
5. Elizabeth Ann Fanning b. 1698 in Connacht, Greagh Townland, Fenagh Parish, Co. Leitrim.
Died 1714. [35] [36]

Loughlin Fanning, (Jr.), # 3 above, was a farmer and the tutor of the notable blind Irish Harpist
Hempson. [37]

Denis Hempson (O’Hempsey) was born in 1695 some four miles west of Garvagh in the townland of
Craigmore. At the age of three he lost his sight as a result of smallpox; when he was twelve, he
began to learn to play the harp, which was not unusual for a blind person at that time.

His training continued over a period of years under various tutors, all of the old school. These
Laughlin Fanning from Connacht, an area famous at the time for the quality of its harp music. In
1713 two residents of Garvagh, Doctor Bacon and Mr Gage, purchased a harp from Cormick O’Kelly of
Draperstown and presented it to Hempson. This he treasured for the rest of his life. Hempson’s harp
is now known as the Downhill harp and is in the Guinness museum in Dublin. In 1745 Denis Hempson
played before Bonny Prince Charlie in Scotland. He attended a great harp meeting in Belfast in 1792
the age of 97 and told someone afterwards, that when he had played his piece the others harpers
refused to play as a mark of respect. It was said that he was the only harper there who had the
traditional long finger nails, associated with this profession.

Denis Hempson died at Magilligan on the 5th November 1807 aged 112. He had lived in three centuries
and was one of the last great Irish Harpers who played in the traditional way. Just beside the
museum, visitors can see the memorial stone, erected in 1992, in what was the garden of Lord
Garvagh where Hempson began his musical career.

R.W.Patterson, in his “Garvagh’s Hidden Treasures and Secret Places” cites 1706 as the year Hempson
started playing the harp and 1713 as the year he began making a living playing the harp. He further
cites one of Hempson’s principal tutors as C. Carragher. His tutors in succession were Bridget
O’Cahan, C. Carragher (John C. Garragher) from Buncrana, Loughlin Fanning and Patrick Conner.

Loughlin Fanning, ( Jr. ), # 3 above married Unknown and had the following issue:[38] [39]

1. Charles Fanning b. 1736 Foxfield, Co. Leitrim, Connacht Province, Ireland who married a
kitchen maid of one of his patrons Mrs. Baillie. [40] [41] Charles was a noted harpist and won
first place three years running at the Granard Co. Longford Grand Balls held in 1781, 1782 &
1783.[42] He, also, won first premium of ten guineas at the Belfast Harp Festival held in 1791.

Charles had one or two children. [47]

# 4 Bryan Fanning, son of Laughlin Fanning, Sr. and Ann O’Brien was born about 1693 in Greagh Townland, Fenagh Parish, Co. Leitrim, Ireland. He emigrated to America and settled in Prince George County of the Colony of Virginia probably around 1720 to 1725. He married Elizabeth Unknown.
[64] It is not sure whether he married in Ireland or Virginia.

Around 1734/1735, Amelia County was formed from Brunswick County which itself had been formed
earlier in 1732 from Prince George County. At this time Bryan Fanning is found with his young
family in what was later known by 1752 as Nottoway Parish, but was initially called Raleigh Parish
1735.[65] He was commissioned to survey for a road to the fork of the Little Nottoway River in the
spring of 1735.[66] Brian Fannon was named in “A List of all the Titheables below Deep Creek in
1736”. [67] On January 2, 1737, he received 294 acres of land by patent from King George II [68]
and by the summer of that year he was involved in the clearing of a new road from the county line

the Tomahitton Creek and the Birchen Swamp. [69] Here he would clear a plantation site and raise
his family. The location is now occupied by Fort Pickett, Blackstone, Nottoway County, Va. (first
known as Camp Pickett). Bryan would later receive another patent for an additional 280 acres on
July 20, 1748
in the same area. [70]

Bryan & Elizabeth Fanning, sometimes spelled Fannen, Fannon or Fannin, raised their family in
Nottoway Parish. Their plantation was located at the present site of Fort Pickett, Blackstone,
Virginia. The old Camp maps show the Tomahitton Creek beginning at the site of the Camp airfield.
This is the location mentioned in the patents & deeds for Bryan Fannin, Sr.’s lands. Bryan died
there in 1765. It is presumed that he is buried there. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers removed any
known graves as they built Camp Pickett.[71] Bryan & Elizabeth’s graves were not found. [72]

Bryan died between January 3rd & February 17th of 1765. [73] Elizabeth Fanin had sold her 92 acre
share of the plantation on September 25th, 1765 to Nathaniel Hobbs [74] and most likely went to
live with one of her children. Achals, Briant, Jehu & Laughlin Fannin were all listed along with
Elizabeth Fannin in the 1765 Amelia Co., Va. Personal Property Tax List. [75] Laughling Fannen,
Achales Fennen (with other free male William Fennen on 140 acres) & William Fennen were all listed
in the
1766 Personal Property Tax List for lower Nottoway Parish of Amelia Co. [76] It appears sons Jehu &
Briant had moved on by 1766 and Elizabeth may have died or moved with one of her children. Jehu
died in 1770 in Halifax County, Virginia. His wife was Anne Unknown. & Bryan, Jr. died in Sussex
County, Virgina in 1767. His wife was Rachel Rottenberry. Laughlin moved to Mecklenburg County,
Virginia, where he served in the militia during the American Revolution. His wife was named
Winnefred Unknown. After the war he moved to Elbert County, Georgia, where he died around 1806-

Bryan & Elizabeth Fannin, Sr.’ son David drowned in Deep River, Orange County, North Carolina
around 1755, shortly before the birth of his son, David Fanning, later a Loyalist Colonel of South
Carolina, who died in 1825 in Digby, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Achilles Fannin, Sr., son of Bryan & Elizabeth, married Rose Unknown and moved to Halifax Co., Va.,
Fincastle Co., Va., Montgomery Co., Va. and died in Wythe Co., Va in 1812 (now Bland Co., Va.). He
had five children: Akerless Fannon, Jr., Bryant Fannon, William Fannon, David Fannon (Fannin,
Fanning) & Sarah Straighley.

October 6, 1765 Court: Inventory & Appraisement recorded for Estate of Bryan Fannan. No value total
given. Appraisers: Joshua Hightower, Charles Williams & George Hightower.

The following two entries have been purported by some to be Personal Property Tax Lists, but were
actually from the “List of Titheables for Amelia County”. Amelia County didn’t have Personal
Property Taxes until after the Revolutionary War.

1765 Amelia County, Va. List of Titheables: Achals, Briant, Elizabeth, Jehu & Laughlin Fannin,
all in Nottoway Parish.

1766 Amelia County, Va. List of Titheables: Laughling Fannen, Achales Fennen ( with other free
male William Fennen), all in Nottoway Parish.

Of the twelve children of Bryan & Elizabeth Fanning (Fannen), nothing is known of six of them; that
is: Phillip, Judith, Anny, Bety, Peggy or Frankey. Some say that Mary Fannin married Burwell
Burchett, but evidence seems to suggest that Mary Burchett was the daughter of Achilles Fanning,
Sr. There is also an obscure reference to Elisabeth Fannen of Nottoway Parish (Amelia Co., Va),
daughter of Betty Fannen, found in “Miscellaneous records Amelia County , VA 1735-1865”, regarding
an entry in Order Book 6. The entry is as follows:

“Jan 22, 1761 Elisabeth Fannen of Nottoway Parish, daughter of Betty Fannen page 85”. The order
books deal with children who were bound out from 1735 – 1782.
It states: “Not all children who were bound out were paupers. However, by law, each Parish was
required to support its own paupers. The church wardens were ordered by the court to bind out, to
the age of maturity, the children of such persons as were deemed incapable of supporting them or
bringing them up in “honest courses”.”
