Origins of surname
This name, which is found in Scotland and Ulster, is a form of the Gaelic siol cuin, and said to be related to the Clan Donald.
Connell first made a unique appearance in the St Martin register in 1812, followed by a steady flow of baptisms in St Helier from 1816 onwards.
The first two variants are found in Jersey but are distinct families
