    More about the MALLOY / MALOY name and the location of Jura:

    The surname MOLLOY, MULLOY and O'MOLLOY is the anglicized versions of
    names distinct from Irish names. The O MAOLMHUAIDH, from "maomauhidh"
    meaning Proud Chefain, were part of the norther Ui Neill, the southern
    branch of the large tribal grouping claiming descent from Naill of the
    Nine Hostages, the fifth century king who supposedly kidnapped St.
    Patrick to Ireland. They held power over a large part of what is now
    County Offaly, where the surname is still quite common. A second fmaily
    were the O MAOIL AODHA, descendant of the devotee to (Saint) Aodh', from
    Moal, literally meaning "Bald". A reference to the distinctive tonsure
    sported by early Irish monks. As well as MOLLOY, this surname has been
    anglicized as MILEY and MILLEA. The name arose in east Connacht, in the
    Rosscommon/east Galaway region and remains numerous there today.

    Origins of O'MOLLOY were in the County Roscommon and they were princes in
    the King's County.

    The Isle of Jura is due north of Belfast: 56 degrees Latitude, 6 degrees

    Jura is seperated by a relatively narrow Channel from Islay, which is
    southermost of the inner Hebrides.

    The northern coast of Ireland is clearly seen from Islay. The two islands
    then and now would be an easy days sailing.

    Some of the above is contributed by: Roy Eastes at
    uenews-nospam-@ranknfile-ue.org 17 August 1998 **Remove -nospam- before
    JOHN MOLLOY was from the Isle of Jura, Scotland. They originally came
    from Ireland (probably northern region) and moved to Jura. JOHN located
    in Robeson County, North Carolina in the Americas circa 1774. His Bible
    is still with descendants and states where they were. It also names the
    sons ANGUS, CHARLES and daughter CATHERINE.
