History

Early History

Since 1172, the year of the Anglo/Norman invasion of Ireland, the history of the family name Fannon has been woven into the romantic green fabric of the Emerald Isle as surely as if the name had been native. The first record of the name Fannon was found in Tipperary where the norman family settled at Ballygarry in 1172, after the invasion of Ireland. They were originally from Fainent in Normandy, and arrived in England during the Norman conquest of 1066. Although the name Fannon, occurred in many references, from time to time the surname was recorded as Feenan, Fanning, Fannin, Fanningley, Finan, Finnan, O'Finan, O'Finnan, O’Fannon and these changes in spelling frequently occurred between father and son. It was not uncommon for a person to be born with one spelling, married with another, and to have yet another recorded at his wake. This now Irish family Fannon emerged as a distinguished family in Tipperary. By the 15th century they had branched to County Limerick and settled in Ballyfanning, and later renamed it Fanningstown.

Races the Wind was an Fostern Ahroun who married a Fae lover. He promised to keep her safe, and keep her from harm. He was sent on a mission for his Sept’s Righ in the Spring of 1647. He was sent to recover an ancient relic from the lands of Pangea. While he was away the town of Cashel, where his Fae wife lived, was sacked by the English army. His wife died and Races the Wind was cursed into madness. In his crazed state he fled into the countryside and was never seen again. Some think he was killed by roving bands of Fomori, while others think he was lost in the Umbra. No one is quite sure what happened to him, but it is said he still haunts the family to this day, ensuring that no other family member meets the fate that befell him.

Dancer’s Doom was a Philodox Elder and Alpha of the Son of Morrina pack. He earned his name, and the rank of Elder, in the defense of Silver Tara for killing nearly 200 Black Spiral Dancers in the week long battle. The Son’s of Morrina gained great renowned for their actions. For his courageous actions in defense of the tribal caern Dancer’s Doom was granted a klaive named Howlers’ Demise. Dancer’s Doom died in glorious battle in 1650 at the young age of 27.

Jacob “Blood in His Heart” Fannon was the only son of Dancer’s Doom to gain any great amount of Renown. He was born in 1647. He was an Ahroun and achieved the rank of Athro and the position of Wyrm Foe of the Silver Tara for a brief time. He is said to have wielded Howlers’ Demise with honor. Jacob Fannon lived to an old age and died in battle to Wyrm in 1705.

Over the next hundred years the Fannon family distinguished themselves producing strong Garou and fertile kinfolk. Some of the greatest Garou included Brian “Shields the Innocent” Fannon an Adren Ragabash who was able to to sneak into a BSD pit and rescue 4 kidnaped kinfolk without being detected in 1715. Bevin “Sings the Litany” Fannon an Athro Philodox, who in 1736, was mocked for being a weak female by two Fostern Ahrouns. To prove herself she completed the requirements of both of their Fostern challenges in succession, single-handedly, and faster than either of them had done so while still being Cliath. She was also the first female Garou in the Fannon family to wield Howlers’ Demise.

Patrick “Kisses the Moon” Fannon, a Fostern Galliard, who is said to have, in a single moot, won a kiss from every female kinfolk in the Sept by making each of them laugh in turn in 1785. These are just a few of the many Garou throughout the century that distinguished themselves and proved their loyalty to each other and the Nation.

Finn “Sees the Way” Fannon was one of 4 children, and the only male born to his parents. He was a Theurge that spent most of his time in the Umbra traveling between the Fianna Homeland and Arcadia Gateway. He lost touch with the world, and thought lost by the family, but when he returned he was blessed with Stag’s favor. Stag gave him a vision and Finn knew that his family needed to go to the new world, so in 1801 he gathered up all of the kinfolk and Garou of the Fannon family, except for a single nuclear group, and headed to the new country. The family landed in New York, NY. In a tragic accident in 1810 the Garou of the Fannon family were destroyed by 4 packs of BSDs that ambushed them in the night. A few of the kinfolk were able to escape the carnage. Among the surviving kinfolk was Finn’s wife Molly Fannon. An imposing red headed woman, she gathered the remaining kinfolk and fled to San Antonio, TX, carrying Howlers’ Demise in her trunk, and established the Fannon Farm in 1820, and so started the tradition of the matriarchal lineage.
