Shannon Genealogy & History

Shannon is an Irish surname with a few different origins. O'Seanain, O'Sionain, and O'Seannachain can all be anglicized into Shannon. The first refers to St. Senan, an early Irish bishop in County Clare, while the second refers to people working with straw, and the third comes from Seain, which means old. Shannon family history goes on the books with the chief of the last clan, O'Seannachain, noted in the History of Delcassian Clans in 1318. Well-known members of Shannon genealogy include former Cardinals outfielder Mike Shannon, information theory pioneer Claude Shannon, and New York Times editorial board member and Ambassador to Ireland William Shannon.
