A Brief History:
The Royal Ffrench Family of Ireland is one of the most notable noble families in Irish history and goes back to John LE Ffrench in 1278, who was originally Norman and a descendant of a member of the Ffrench Family who went from France to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. The Ffrench Family eventually settled in County Wexford Ireland and became one of the most prominent Tribes of Galway. The Ffrench Castle was built in the year 1400 AD. A member of the Ffrench Family became Sovereign of Galway in 1444.
A member of the Ffrench Family came to America in 1671 and settled in Maryland. The family eventually migrated to Kentucky in 1785 and in 1911 Viola A. Ffrench of Sunfish Kentucky, the direct descendent of the Royal Ffrench Family of Ireland, was born. The Heir in the United States and of the Royal Family is US Wings CEO David D. Hack, son of Viola Ffrench. In Ireland, there is still a Lord and Lady Ffrench living at Castle Ffrench, at Ballinamore Bridge in County Galway.
