This lineage chart is compiled from various sources, including Albert Finley FRANCE, Herbert STOUT, Rex B. FINLEY and my own personal knowledge. Some of it falls in the category of legend; other parts of it have been authenticated by various sources. I am cutting off the information with my great-grandmother, who was the last of the FINLEYs in my line, to avoid any problems with identity theft.

My computer records currently contain all of Herald Franklin STOUT's The Clan FINLEY, First Edition, Limited (1940); Volume 1, Second Edition; Volume 2 (1961); and what could be referred to as his unpublished Volume 3, which consists of almost 2,000 pages apparently written between the 1970s to 1980s and which are exclusively in my possession. In addition, the computer records include Robert McIlvaine TORRENCE's Torrence and Allied Families, Carrie Alexander WOOD's work (1938-1941) and Albert Finley FRANCE's The Clan FINLEY (as amended by Lillian Hicks FRANDSEN), as well as information supplied by subscribers. Thanks to contributions made by subscribers and the later additions by STOUT, I have been able to make many corrections to the original materials, which should make my records the most accurate available. Already, there are more than 35,000 individuals and more than 13,000 marriages recorded, with the potential for many more.

WOOD shows the following early generations, which agree with information included by FRANDSEN, with the latter attributed to House of FINLEY Traced Back To Adam and Eve, submitted by Ruth MOORE; information taken from the Holy Bible and the Pedigree Chart of Queen Elizabeth and the Royal Family of Great Britain:


1. Adam and Eve. Adam was the first man and lived to be 930 years old. Named children in Bible: Cain, Abel and Seth.

2. Seth, lived 912 years.

3. Enos, lived 905 years.

4. Cainan, lived 910 years.

5. Mahalaleel, lived 895 years.

6. Jared, lived 962 years.

7. Enoch, lived 365 years.

8. Methuselah, lived 969 years; oldest person to have ever lived.

9. Lamech, lived 777 years.

10. Noah, builder of the ark, lived 950 years. Children: Shem, Ham and Japheth.


It is here that WOOD diverges from MOORE, with MOORE following the line of Shem and WOOD going along the following line:


11. Japheth. Children: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras.

12. Gomer. Children: Baoth, Ashkenaz, Riphath and Togarmah.

13. Baoth.

14. Phoeniusa (or Fenius) Farsaidh, inventor of letters, King of the Scythians, who settled in northern Egypt. Children: Niul, Regent of Scythia; Neull.

15. Neull, succeeded his father as King of the Scythians; m Scota, daughter of King of Egypt.


The lines given by FRANCE and WOOD converge again here, with WOOD's spelling given first and then MOORE's spelling in brackets:


16. Godelas (or Gaodhal), a quo the Clann, na Gaodhail or the Gaels [Gadhol].

17. Asruth [Easru].

18. Sruth [Scru].

19. Heber Scot.

20. Beouman [Roamhain].

21. Oghaman [Aybaimhain].

22. Tait.

23. Agnan [Aghenoin].

24. Lamhfionn [Lamh Fionn].

25. Heber Glunfionn [Heber].

26. Agnan Fionn [Aahnoin].

27. Febric Glas [Eeabhla Glas].

28. Nenuall [Nein nuail].

29. Nuadhad (found only in WOOD).

30. Alladh [Alloid].

31. Arcadh [Earchada].

32. Deagh [Deagfatha].

33. Brath [Bratha].

34. Breoghan (or Brigus) a quo the Brigantes [Breogan].

35. Bile [Bille].

36. [Gallam] not in WOOD; found in MOORE and a subsequent chart included by FRANDSEN, "Queen Elizabeth: Descendant of King David -- British-Israel Traces The Throne to David," condensed by W.H. Probus-Fleming and the Rev. W.M.H. Milner, MA, FRGS, AVI, taken from Chart -- Families of Royal Descent).


At this point, the charts shown in FRANDSEN's supplements skip several generations, converging once again with Eochaidh m Tamar (Tea Tephi). WOOD adds the line of Heremon, commenting, "From him were descended the Kings, Nobility and Gentry of the Kingdoms of Connaught, Dalriada, Idenster, Meath, Orgiall and Ossary; of Scotland since the fifth century; of Ulster since the fourth century; and of England from the reign of King Henry II, down to the present time.


37. Milesius of Spain (WOOD says he is the son of Bile, but following the addition of Gallam, he would be the grandson of Bile).


Based on the commentaries included in the quoted genealogies, there is an obvious gap here, with no explanation. As we will see later, FRANCE says that in 2934 B.C., Milesius had a vision which led to the discovery of Ireland. WOOD and STOUT say the vision was in 3501 B.C. The next generation shown by WOOD is:


38. Heremon. He and his brother, Heber, began to reign in 1699 B.C.; were jointly the first Monarchs of Ireland. Heber was slain in 1698 B.C.; Heremon reigned 14 years, d 1683 B.C.

39. Irial Faidh, 10th Monarch, d 1670 B.C. This was a very learned king who could foretell things to come and who built several royal palaces.

40. Eithriall, 11th Monarch; reigned 20 years; slain by Conmaol in 1650 B.C. in Leinster at the Battle of Soirrean; was also a learned king and wrote with his own hands The History of the Gaels (or Godelians).

41. Foll-Aich. He was kept out of the monarchy by Conmaol, the slayer of his father, who usurped his place.

42. Tighearnmas, 13th Monarch; reigned 77 years; d 1543 B.C.; historians say this Monarch was first to introduce image worship in Ireland.

43. Enboath.

44. Simorgoill. In his lifetime, the Picts in Scotland were forced to abide by their oath and pay homage to the Irish Monarch.

45. Fiacha Labhraim, 18th Monarch; reigned 24 years; d 1448 B.C.

46. Aongus Olmucach, 20th Monarch; in whose reign the Picts again refused to pay tribute imposed on them 250 years before by Heremon. This Monarch went with a strong army into Alba (now Scotland) and in 30 pitched battles, overcame them and forced them to pay the required tribute. Aongus was slain by Eana, in the Battle of Carman, 1409 B.C.

47. Maon. He was kept out of the monarchy by Eadna.

48. Rotheachtach, 22nd Monarch; slain 1357 B.C. by Sedne of the line of Ir. Silver shields were made and four-horse chariots were first used in Ireland in the reign of this Monarch.

49. Dein.

50. Siorna "Saoghalach," 34th Monarch; slain 1030 B.C. by Rotheachta of the line of Heber Fionn, who usurped the monarchy, thereby excluding him from the throne.

51. Olioll Aolcheoin.

52. Gailchadh, 37th Monarch; slain 1013 B.C.

53. Unadhas Fionnfail, 39th Monarch; slain 961 B.C.

54. Aedan Glas. In his time, the coast was infested with pirates and there was a plague which swept away most of the inhabitants.

55. Simeon Breac, 44th Monarch. He inhumanely caused his predecessor to be torn asunder, but after a reign of six years, he met with a like death by order of Duach Fionn, son of the murdered king, in 903 B.C.

56. Muredach Bolgach, 46th Monarch; killed 892 B.C.

57. Fiacha Tolgrach, 55th Monarch; slain 795 B.C.

58. Duach Ladhrach, 59th Monarch; killed 737 B.C.


WOOD and Queen Elizabeth's chart (included by FRANDSEN) both include the following two generations and then converge again with generation 68, with alternative spellings shown in Queen Elizabeth's chart included in brackets:


59. Eochaidh Buadhach, kept out of the monarchy by his father's slayer; in his time, the kingdom was twice visited by a plague; [m Tamar (Tea Tephi)].

60. Ugaine Mor (or Hugony) the Great, 66th Monarch; was called Mor on account of his extensive dominions, being sovereign of all the islands of Western Europe; m Caesair, daughter to the King of France. Children: 22 sons, three daughters, with all sons dying without issue but two -- Laeghaire Lore and Cobthach Caolbhreagh, from whom the Heremonians of Leath Cuinn, viz. Meath, Ulster and Connaught derive their pedigree. Ugaine was slain 593 B.C. by Badhbhchadh, who failed to secure the fruits of his murder, the Irish throne, as he was executed by order of Laeghaire Lore, the murdered Monarch's son, who became 68th Monarch.

61. Colethach Caolbhreagh, 69th Monarch. It is said to secure the throne, he assassinated his brother, Laeghaire. After a long reign, he was slain by Maion, his nephew, in 541 B.C.

62. Melg Molbhthach, 71st Monarch; also slain 541 B.C.

63. Iaran Gleofathach, 74th Monarch; was a king of great justice and wisdom, very well learned and possessor of many accomplishments; slain 473 B.C.

64. Conla Caomh, 75th Monarch; died a natural death in 442 B.C.

65. Olioll Cas-fiachlach, 77th Monarch; slain by his successor in 417 B.C.

66. Eochaidh Alt-Leathan, 79th Monarch; slain by his successor in 395 B.C.


STOUT and FRANCE's genealogies begin at the following point, with any changes noted by them shown in parentheses and boldface type. Changes from Queen Elizabeth's chart are still shown in brackets:


67. Aongus Tuirmeach-Teamrach the Prolific, 81st Ard-Rich or High Monarch of Ireland, 384 to 325 B.C. (83rd Ardrigh, 384-328 B.C.)
