FLEMING Family History

This is an ancient name in Ireland, known to date back to the 12th Century and shortly after the invasion of Henry 11th in 1171. The name means specifically "a man from Flanders" and was found as "le Flamanc", one William Le Flamanc being so recorded in the Yorkshire Assize Rolls in 1219 A.D.. The name is also job descriptive, and "Le Flamanc" probably referred as much to skills as a "Flemish weaver" as the place of origin. In the early medieval period "Flanders" was the centre of all european textile manufacture and several English Kings offered "inducements" to persuade "Flem(m)ings" to emigrate to Britain, and to set up manufacture...

(Part 1 of 3) The Fleming name is believed to have originated in Flanders, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. This Fleming story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup C2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Fleming surname origin is possibly from the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who found the Kingdom of Brycheiniog, Wales around 300 CE.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Kingdom of Brycheiniog will take part in an invasion of Brittany, France around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Fleming story begins in pre-history Ireland but this descendant will then move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
