Dave: I have been researching Irish Finlays for some time. Originally, they followed members of the Hamilton nobility from south Scotland to Ireland as part of the "plantation" process to replace Irish Catholics with protestant Scots.
The Hamiltons gained grants of land in many places in N. Ireland, and the finlays also seem to have spread to the same districts. There is a lot of literature on the migration. Dave F.
