There is no historical record to show what was the ruling family beyond one hundred or one hundred and twenty years.
During the last century the Fallons appear to be the most plentiful race.
There are four branches of the Fallons
(a) The gentle Fallons
(b) The Simple Fallons
(c) The mateer (mataoir) Fallons
(d) The Pork Fallons
(b) These are scattered here and there throughout the parishes of Dysart and Cam (The school is built on the boundary between the two parishes.)
(c) The Mataoir Fallons are the most numerous. They got their nickname from the first Fallon who settled down in the district and whose occupation was making straw-mats. These mats were used as mattresses for beds. Some of them were for hens laying in them and were in the shape of boxes.
