Ó Maolfábhail Lavelle, MacFall: líonmhar: Connachta & Ulaidh, Cill Mhantáin-Cill Dara-an Mhí. Bíodh gur sloinne Francach Lavelle, is cosúil gur Gaeil ar fad atá i gceist annso. Bhí clann amháin in Inis Eoghain agus ceann eile ag Domhnach Pádraig i nGaillimh. Deineadh Lavelle den dream deireannach sa, ag iarraidh a sinsearthacht Ghaelach a cheilt. Bíonn Melville orthu, uaireannta. Fréamh: de réir an Duinnínigh, ciallaíonn "fabhal" bogadh, casadh, turas. Fear mór taistil, b'fhéidir! MIF.
