About John Finley, III

  • "The change of the surname FINLAY to FINLEY is found in various documents relating to this family under date of 1461 to 1501; appears under the form of FYNLAY, FENLAY, and under date of 1506, John FINLEY, partitioner of Cupar Angus, son of John FYNLAY, is mentioned as partitioner of County Lanark." (WOOD uses the spelling of FINLEY from that point on. STOUT uses various spellings for the same names that WOOD lists as FINLEY. Since there are many who retain some of the older spellings, in future documents to be presented, I will use STOUT's spelling from the 1500s to the present unless noted otherwise.)
  • The Surnames of Scotland, by George F. BLACK (The New York Public Library, 1974), the following appears: "FINLAY, FINLEY, FINDLAY, Gaelic FIONNLAGH, less correctly FIONNLADH and FIONNLA. In the Gaelic genealogical manuscript of 1467, the name occurs in the genitive as FINLAEIC, and in the Duan Albanach, an old poetical chronicle of the kings of Dalriada (c. 1070, though in text of later date) as FIONNLAOICH.
