The name Nowlin is one of several variations that come from the ancient Irish name "O'Nuallan" meaning "Descendant of Nuallan (Noble, Famous)"

My direct line has remained in Virginia since we arrived over 300 years ago. Click on the link below to see what I have found so far about the Nowlin line.
