The McMURRANs, McMURRINS and McMURRENs in Ireland
Last update 18 October 2005

The McMURRAN/IN/EN surname originated in Ireland, yet due to imigration it is probably at least as popular in America nowadays.  Due to difficulties in performing Irish research and the low likelhood of a connection with my Scottish McMorran ancestors I have not attempted much other than consulting those readily available indexes.  The entries on this site have been extracted from the International Genealogical Index (1993) and the British Isles Vital Record Index (1998) which have been taken mainly from various parish registers. This list is nowhere near a complete list of events for all of Ireland.  The fact that the counties of Antrim and Monaghan predominate is more to do with availability of records rather than suggesting the McMurrans were concentrated in those counties.
