Walsh Genealogy & History

Walsh is an Irish and English surname derived from Old English "waelisc", meaning foreigner or stranger. Ironically, it was often applied by the conquerors to the native people. The first recording in Walsh family history was Haylen Walsh, who invaded Ireland in 1171 with Strongbow, Earl of Pembroke. Brothers Philip and David Brenagh also invaded with Strongbow. An alternative derivation is Irish "Breathnach", meaning foreigner or Welshman. Walsh genealogy includes name variations of Brannagh, Walch, Walshman, Welche, Wellish, and Welshe. In Ireland, Walshes were first found in Kilkenny, Leix, and Waterford in the 12th and 13th centuries. In America, they immigrated to Boston in 1635. Their motto, "transfixus sed non mortuus", means "transfixed but not dead".
