Spelling variations of the name cannon dating from Middle Ages include Cannon, O’Cannon, MacCannon, MacCannan, and many more. First found in Tirconnell in Northern Ireland where they held a family seat from very ancient times. In the 18th and 19th centuries, thousands of Irish families fled an Ireland that was forcibly held through by England through its imperialistic policies. A large portion of these families crossed the Atlantic to the shores of North America. Early North American immigration records indicate people bearing the Irish name cannon or a variant settled in Virginia in 1646; in the Barbados in 1660.
