SURNAME DICTIONARY/ SLOINNTE NA h-EIREANN

Holmes: Very numerous: all provinces especially Ulster. According to MacLysacht, it is not usually of English origin. There are Scottish Holmes in Ulster, derived from Mac Thómais (Gaelic). However, the widespread distribution, without any obvious native synonym, leaves the matter in question. This name is common in England. SI.
