While we were at the Belfast Castle we found an antique gift shop in the cellar where you can find out your family history. For a few pounds you can have them print up your coat of arms and history. We found the Quinlan name. The great Gaelic family Quinlan emerged in the County of Meath which is located south of Belfast and north of Dublin along the eastern part of the island. After years of invasions some of the family were exiled to Spain and others moved to other parts of the island. The first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Quinlan clan arived in Quebec in 1825. In the 1840s some of the family arrived in Philadelphia and then moved westward.
