Author: brian_marren Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/80.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hello, I'm sorry to say, but I can't offer any information regarding your query. In fact, I was not aware that any Marren's lived in County Clare. I had always assumed the name was virtually confined to the South Sligo/West Mayo border region. However, I had once come across something about the Marren Foundry in New York City. I believe at one time all New York City Department of Streets manhole covers were manufactured by their concern. I was told the name Marren was prominently stamped on each manhole cover. I understand that this earned many of the Marren kids who grew up in New York City a rather unflattering nickname. Ha ha! Sorry, but that's all I can offer. Hope your research proves fruitful, Peter! -Brian Marren Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
