SLEVIN Family History

Slevin or Slavin are the Anglicized forms of one of the most ancient and honourable of all surnames. They derive from "O'Sleibhin", descendant of the son (ain) of Sleibh, the latter being Gaelic for a mountain, and denoting a warrior of magnificent stature. Curiously, the name is mostly associated with poetry, the original nameholder being one of the earliest recorded bards (see below), but as he was also a close associate of Malachy, High King of Ireland, in his battles with Brian Boru, killed in 1014, it is probable that he was equally effective in the fighting role.

    John Slevin, Brickeens, Ballymacormick, Longford, Ireland 1868-1913 To add to your summary of the family: According to a book I perused by Edward MacLysaght, the first Slevin were subordinate to the Clan of Egan (Cenél Eoghain) in Tyrone. According to Mr Luke Baxter, chemist and journeyman historian of Stonepark, Longford, Ireland, the family spent several centuries as monks & nuns; there are(as of 1991) no Slevin living in the southwest of Longford, but some in Tyrone and Roscommon. I'm sure some of this will be useful to people researching their connection to the Slevin of old. ????
