Morrissey Genealogy & History

Morrissey originated in Ireland and began as a form of the Gaelic name Muirgheasa: muir, meaning sea, and geas, action. The first known spelling of the name was that of Niall O�Morrissey of Sligo in 1659 during Richard Cromwell�s reign. Morrissey family history records in Europe show that on March 2, 1824, John Morrissey wed Margaret Daly at Currow R. C. Church, County Kerry. Morrissey genealogy in America traces back to immigrants fleeing the potato famine in the 19th century. One of these immigrants, Edward Morrissey, arrived in the US on June 15, 1846. He emigrated from Liverpool to New York at age 25.
