The lives of Hugh and Sarah (Widney) Linn and some of their descendants were memorialized by their great-grandson Dr. George Wilds Linn in his 1906 book "A History of a Fragment of the Clan Linn".  Dr. Linn relied in part on information related to him by his grandfather, Hugh Linn II, who was just three years old when the family left Ireland, and by others of that generation.  Since the book's publication, it has proven invaluable in providing family connections for many descendants and has given them a vivid picture of their ancestors' lives as immigrants in a then remote portion of Pennsylvania.

But how helpful it would be to read the doctor's original notes!  How enlightening to have heard what the doctor heard!  Unfortunately, we cannot tell from the book how much his forebears actually knew and shared about their origins in Ireland or how much of those origins Dr. Linn was left to interpret or assume from his own understanding of the history of Ulster and Scotland.

It is clear that one key word in the very title of the book has only an aesthetic, romantic appeal and does not convey historic fact.  That word is "clan", and the truth is that the name Linn is not included, by any spelling, in any of the six best known and most credible lists or histories of Scottish clans.  The authors of those works include authorities such as Sir Iain Moncreiffe (1919-1985), who was a Baronet and Chief of Clan Moncreiffe, and Sir Thomas Innes of Learney (1893-1971), who was Scotland's Lord Lyon King of Arms from 1945 to 1969.  Lord Lyon is the very office that recognizes Scottish clans and titles.

Just over a century after Dr. Linn published his book, the online publication of images of original 18th-century Irish deeds helped bring to light the reality behind the question of Hugh's origins.  The following historical record incorporates certain important points from Dr. Linn's book and examines them in the light of those deeds and other historical sources.  Together, these documents demonstrate that some of Dr. Linn's understanding of the family's origins was less than accurate.

Historical Account

Concerning their migration from Scotland to Ireland, Dr. Linn wrote that the Linns left Scotland after the 1690 battle that won Ireland for William, Prince of Orange and "took up their abode in the northeastern or Scottish side of Ulster, Ireland's northern province, in County Down, near Newry".1  His descriptive account of the family's subsequent departure from Ireland for America leaves little room for doubt that they did indeed live somewhere in the vicinity of Newry for some unknown period of time before their emigration.  About their leaving, he wrote that Hugh Linn's family could see "[t]he church spires of Newry, Emyvale and Aughnacloy, one by one, disappear in the distance" as they went to board a ship in Londonderry.2  There are three things, however, to note in that regard :

(1)  The Newry church sits at so high an elevation that its spires are visible for miles on all sides.
(2)
 Newry Parish, in which the town is situated, lies partly in County Down but also partly in County Armagh on the west.
(3)
A lifelong resident of Belfast asked this author why a family would travel from Newry to the port at Londonderry when the port at Belfast is less than half the 88-mile distance to Londonderry - a good question indeed.

In any case, living in or about Newry at the time the family left Ireland is not evidence that Hugh Linn was born in County Down, and Dr. Linn in fact did not say that he was.  Dr. Linn's elders apparently either knew nothing or said nothing about Hugh's birth place or his parents; otherwise, Dr. Linn would have said so outright.  Instead, he was left to surmise; and the reader unfortunately is left to assume that Hugh was born in or near Newry.

As to Hugh's in-laws, the Widneys, Dr. Linn believed (and likely was told by his paternal grandmother*) that they owned "a considerable estate in County Tyrone".3  However, deeds dated 1715 and later, along with other historic records, place the Linns in County Tyrone and the Widneys immediately south, in neighboring County Monaghan.  Unfortunately, no Irish deeds earlier than 1708 have survived.

As shown in existing deeds, the Widney family lived in Killymurry, County Monaghan at least as early as 1724 and were owners thereof from then until 1784.  In the latter year, Hugh's brother-in-law James Widney sold Killymurry and left for America.4,5  That was also seven years after Hugh Linn's marriage to Sarah Widney.  Killymurry lies but one mile south of Monaghan's border with County Tyrone, and on the Tyrone side of the county line is Aghaloo Parish, which in 1766 was home to Protestant householders John Lynn, George Lynn, and Hugh Lynn.6  Deeds for the townland of Dunmacmay in Aghaloo Parish, and other deeds in which one Linn or another was described as resident in Dunmacmay - together with Aghaloo Parish Vestry Minutes - reveal the following Linns of Dunmacmay, with years of birth and death estimated from the dates of the deeds, etc. and certain details included therein (see Source descriptions) :

(1)  John Linn - b. bef. 1665, in Aghaloo Parish in 1699, d. aft. 17057
(2)  George Linn, Gentleman - b. bef. 1685, of Dunmacmay in 1715, d.  1715-17268,9
(3)  John Linn, Gentleman - b. ca. 1705, of Dunmacmay in 1726-1752, d. 1753-909
(4)  George Linn, Gentleman - b. ca. 1732, of Dunmacmay in 1752 and 1791, late of County Tyrone
      in  1793, d. 1792-17939,10,11

It bears noting that the spelling of the family name was very inconsistent, and some Dunmacmay deeds show Linn, some show Lynn, and one shows both spellings.  The Hugh Lynn who, along with (3) John and (4) George, was a householder in Aghaloo Parish in 1766 very probably was a younger brother of (3) and the father of our Hugh Linn, subject of this account.  As recorded in the 1752 deed,9 (4) was the only son of (3).  Additionally, the 1793 deed11 states specifically that the wife and two daughters of (4) were each entitled to one-third of his fortune, indicating that he left no sons.

Evidence of a link between the Dunmacmay Linns and the Widneys is seen in their respective associations with Thomas Donaldson of Counties Tyrone and Monaghan :

(1)  A 1715 deed witnessed by George Linn of Dunmacmay, County Tyrone involved a property described therein as having been formerly held by Thomas Donaldson.8
(2)  A 1716 deed shows Thomas Donaldson then purchasing property in County Monaghan.12
(3) A 1724 deed of marriage settlement for James Widney the younger of Killymurry, County Monaghan names Thomas Donaldson as the uncle of James's bride.4

Given the above historical record, it seems evident that Hugh and Sarah, and perhaps one or two of their eldest children, settled somewhere in the vicinity of Newry sometime after the couple's 1777 marriage.  Intriguingly, there is a British Army discharge for one William Lynn stating that he was born ca. 1781 in Donagh Parish, County Monaghan, which is adjacent to the parish in which Killymurry lies.  That record is of great interest because Hugh and Sarah's son William, born 1780, was the son they left behind when they went to America.  The child clearly did outgrow his frailty, as evidenced by the fact that he grew up, married, and had children of his own - all as reported by Dr. Linn.13

Dr. Linn did write that his grandfather, Hugh Linn II, fourth eldest child of Hugh and Sarah, was born in County Down; but he listed no place of birth for any of the other children.  Furthermore, it is unknown whether Dr. Linn's grandfather specifically claimed County Down as his place of birth or said simply Newry; or, if the latter, whether he meant Newry town or Newry Parish.  Again, both Newry town and Newry Parish lie partly in County Armagh.

Ultimately, if Hugh and his family did live on the County Down side of Newry town, the question of why they travelled to Londonderry instead of Belfast to board a ship has even greater bearing.  It is just 39 miles from Newry to Belfast but 88 miles from Newry to Londonderry.  The only logical answer is that the choice of route was made in order to bid farewell to loved ones who lived along the way.  It might even be the case that the home of "aunt, Rebecca Lee", with whom Hugh and Sarah left William was somewhere on that route and was a stopping point for placing William in her care.

Since, as is now evident, Hugh Linn's forebears were living in County Tyrone at least as early as 1699, what are we to make of Dr. Linn's view that those ancestors had settled in County Down immediately upon their arrival from Scotland?  While the northeast of Ulster is directly across the Irish Sea from Scotland, Rev. George Hill's scholarly work on the 17th-century plantation of Ulster14 includes a 1619 survey that names a great many Scotsmen having obtained grants of land in the far northwest of Ulster; i.e., Counties Donegal, Londonderry, and Tyrone.  In the survey, one William Lynn was listed as a Scotsman who held lands in County Donegal in 1619.

The same 1619 William Lynn is shown in other historical records to have owned additional properties in the City of Londonderry and County Tyrone; he was described by notable County Tyrone historian Dr. William J. Roulston as "a prominent figure in north west Ulster in the early 1600s".15  Finally, among other historical records naming William is one that describes him - along with John Lynn and David Lynn - as Scottish settlers in the Earl of Abercorn's manor of Dunnalong, County Tyrone by the year 1616.16  It was at least 160 years later that Hugh Linn and his family were living "near Newry".

While Dr. Linn labored unfortunately under a lack of historical records concerning the family's migration from Scotland to Ireland amd their holdings in Ulster, his account of their American history - particularly the first three generations thereof - is quite detailed and reliable.  Growing up in a wilderness that grew with them, and developed into a thriving community, the children of Hugh and Sarah (Widney) Linn surely had many experiences that were quite memorable and fondly recounted.  The family had settled in Franklin County, Pennsylvania in 1788 and helped to found the village of Concord.  The father, being a man of Christian faith arriving in a region which as yet had no established churches, opened his home to neighbors far and near for Bible reading and prayer.  His cabin came to be called "Immanuel", meaning "God with us".17  In such a wilderness, Hugh and Sarah (Widney) Linn raised a family of eight children, doubtless cherishing in their hearts their frail son William, left across the ocean. 

Sarah (Widney) Linn died in 1810 and Hugh Linn in 1815.  It was thirty years later that a son of William came to America.  He settled in Philadelphia by 1850, and Philadelphia was also home to Dr. George Wilds Linn at least as early as 1870 (he not being identified in the 1850 or 1860 census).
