    Does anybody have any information on the origins of the Flinter surname and it's introduction to Ireland?


  • MacLysaght says (p.111)

    Though one of the name appears as an official in Carlingford in 1499, Flinters did not settle permanently in Ireland until the seventeenth century; they have been since continuously in Cos Kildare and Wicklow.

    Grenham's surname page seems to concur.
