Jennings Genealogy Welcome

 

 


Jennings name is everywhere in Fairfield and Southport, Connecticut. Growing up we probably knew more about our family history than most, but that still leaves at lot unknown in our branch of the Jennings family.

"Jennings surname is of early medieval English origin, although later strongly associated with both Wales and Ireland. Recorded in the spellings of Jennings, Jennins and Jennens, it is a patronymic. It derives from the given name Janyn or Jenyn, a diminutive of the personal name John, and meaning "Little John". They seem to have settled in England before the Norman Conquest, being of Danish extraction, altho some say that the family originated in Carnarvonshire, Wales."
