I don't yet have definitive proof but if memory serves he also described the line of the Clann Tigernain na Corradh as Mc Ternans as well." [end of Loughlan's comments] It is written in Irish history, that the Mc Ternans of Bréifne decend from both The O'Rourkes who were kings of Drumahaire, Co Leitrim and Tiernan, grandson of Turlough Mor O'Connor, past king of Ireland who lived in north Co Roscommon.
While the Barony of Tullyhunco or Teallach Donnchadha as it was called in Co Cavan, Ulster is the histroical seat of the Mc Ternans, the earliest known member of my Mc Ternan family line came from the Townland of Sheskin, Killargue Catholic parish, Killarga civil parish, Barony of Drumahaire, PLU of Manorhamilton, County Leitrim.Larry is from Co Fermanagh and Gus & Michael (NJ) are from Scotland according to their verbal family history.The first identifiable Kernan ancestor of the Utica Kernans is Bryan Kernan, gentleman of Ned, in the parish of Killeshandra, Barony of Tullyhunco, Co Cavan, Ulster.Or were they in fact distinct Mac Tigernain families?O'Farrell's Linea Antiqua describes the line of the Clann Tigernain na Buannaidh as "Mc Ternan Naban," Naban here probably being a corrupt misanglicisation of Na Bunnaidh.By 1641, however, the family had even lost this possession, for, in that year, John mac Kernan was one of the gentlemen who led the rebels in a siege of Croaghan then occupied by Sir James Hamilton.
West Bréifne covers north Co Leitrim and the two baronies in Co Cavan, Tullyhunco and Tullyhaw.
Based on the DNA test for 112 Mac Tighernans, it appears that the tested Mc Ternans fall into 19 separate genetic groups.
The 112 Mac Tighernans are from eleven countries and five continents from around the world.
Sometime before 1622, the family had lost ownership of this property, probably supplanted by Scotsmen in James I's Plantation of Ulster.
Nonetheless, at the time of his death in that year, the Mac Kernan who was called "Brien bane" [Blond Brien] was still in possession by demise from James Craig who had been granted it by James Auchmuty.
The broader Mc Ternan family background: In John O'Hart's first book, "Families in Ireland from the 11th century to the end of the 16th century" he list a Mc Tiernan family from Co Fermanagh and a Lord Mc Tiernan from Co Cavan.
