Posted on Conn Rootsweb 12th Oct 2010 From American ancestors
This is from Genealogy, probate and family history  research in Northern Ireland.  
Aberdeenshire (Catholic) Ayrshire (Presbyterian)  So it seems.  Can we  assume a certain person was wrong saying 
our CONNs came from  Aberdeenshire?
 

 

[CONN] they were Scottish emigrants to  Ireland. >From Blacks Surnames of  Scotland: 
CONN. An old name in Aberdeenshire, where  there was a prominent Roman Catholic family of the name, Con or Cone of  Auchry, in the parish of 
Monquhitter. They claimed to be a branch of the Clan  Donald (Archxeologia Scotica, 
rv, p. 376), the surname being assumed from the  traditional name of the Clan, 
`Siol Cuin' or 'Con.' They were designated of  Auchry before 1539. George 
Con or Conwus (as his name was Latinized), the  Pope's agent at the court of 
the queen of Charles r ( 1636? 1639 ), was the  most prominent of the name. 
Alexander Cone in Auchry is mentioned in 1522. The  family were driven into 
exile soon after 1642 (Aberdeen Jour. Notes and  queries, in, p. 82). In the 
birth brieve of Gilbert Chalmer, 1650, the Cons or  Cones of Auchry are 
said to be descended from William Con [five generations  earlier] "lauchfull 
sone{Lawful son} to Donald of the Iles and Kyntyr, chief  of the Mackdonald" ( 
SCM., v, p. 334 ). William Conn witnessed the laird of  Balfour's bond in 
1552 ( SCM., Iv, p. 222), Thomas Con was a merchant in  Glasgow, 1606, and in 
1640 there is record of payment to Thomas Con, post, in  Aberdeen ( SCM., 
v, p. 156), and John Con, flesher in Edinburgh, is recorded  in 1508 ( EBR., 
p. 114 ). 
( 2) Conn is also an  Ayrshire surname, and Dobie suggests that it is an abridgement of PETCON, q.v.  Johannes Con, burgess of Irvine, 1499 
(Simon, 29). Conne  1690.

The Conns of Magilligan came to Ulster after  1608. The first of the name was Thomas Conn found in 1631 as a tenant of Sir  Thomas Phillips in Limavady. 
It is likely, that in common with the other  Scottish tenants in the district, he was from Ayrshire. 
Civil registration of births  was first introduced in Ireland in 1864, so before this date we are dependent  on finding evidence of a person's 
birth [and the names of the parents} from a Church record of baptism. Unfortunately there are no  surviving 17th century Church registers for 
Magilligan, so  it would now be impossible to establish family  relationships..
