This profile is part of the Shannon Name Study.

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

Here are some tips on how to get involved to contribute to and/or benefit from this study.

  • Curious to learn more about One-Name studies, what they are and how they get started? I was too; I found this to be a great guide at one-name.org[1].
  • Interested in which WikiTree profiles are part of this study? Category:Shannon_Name_Study
  • If you manage a profile which should be part of this Shannon and variants one-name study, please paste the following into the bio portion of the profile.
    • Category:Shannon Name Study with 2 square brackets before and after the phrase.

As many of us Shannons as there are out there, I was surprised to find no One Name Study so here it is. Let's get the ball rolling.

I have my Shannon line back to Lanty (Laughlin/Leachlainn) Shannon born 1735 in Mt. Bethel, PA, died 23 February 1797 in Lower Mt. Bethel, PA. I have some suspicions of Lanty’s Father being Daniel Shannon born in Antrim, Northern Ireland but nothing definite yet. If anyone has any information on this line I’d love to hear it. My Father recently passed away but his younger sister is still alive and I’d love to give her that gift of finding our immigrant Shannon ancestor. I have my tree up on Ancestry.com.
The current known origin of our name Schanne is in Fels, Luxembourg: Schanen, Michel I, born around 1684.

It could be a adaptation from Shannon and perhaps we have roots in Ireland?

Have you had a chance to review the Trusted List request I sent a week ago on 4 Aug 18?

I am researching the Shannon surname in Carleton and Renfrew Counties in Ontario. My 2d great grandmother was probably a famine immigrant. I can find no place of origin for her other than Ireland.
