Historical References

"CONN. An old name in Aberdeenshire, where there was a prominent Roman Catholic family of the name, Con or Cone of Auchry, in the parish of Monquhitter. They claimed to be a branch of the Clan Donald (Archseologia Scotica, iv, p. 376), the surname being assumed from the traditional name of the Clan, 'Siol Cuin' or 'Con.' They were designated of Auchry before 1539. George Con or Conseus (as bis name was Latinized), the Pope's agent at the court of the queen of Charles i (1636 61639), was the most prominent of the name. Alexander Cone in Auchry is mentioned in 1522. The family were driven into exile soon after 1642 (Aberdeen Jour. Notes and queries, m, p. 82). In the birth brieve of Gilbert Chahner, 1650, the Cons or Cones of Auchry are said to be descended from William Con [five generations earlier] "lauchfull sone to 0 Donald of the lies and Kyntyr, chief of the Mackdonald" (SCM., v, p. 334). William Conn witnessed the laird of Balfour's bond in 1552 (SCM., iv, p. 222), Thomas Con was a merchant in Glasgow, 1606, and in 1640 there is record of payment to Thomas Con, post, in Aberdeen (SCM., v, p. 156), and John Con, flesher in Edinburgh, is recorded in 1508 (EBR., p. 114). (2) Conn is also an Ayrshire surname, and Dobie suggests that it is an abridgement of PETCON, q.v. Johannes Con, burgess of Irvine, 1499 (Simon, 29). Conne 1690 "(The surnames of Scotland.
