Edward MacLysaght (6 November 1887 – 4 March 1986) was one of the foremost genealogists of twentieth century Ireland. His numerous books on Irish surnames built upon the work of Rev. Patrick Woulfe's Irish Names and Surnames (1923) and made him well known to all those researching their family past. MacLysaght was born in Flax Bourton near Bristol, England to a Cork father and a Lincolnshire mother. He attended school at Nash House, Bristol, and later attended Rugby School. He then entered Corpus Christi College, Oxford where he studied law but spent only two terms there having injured himself during a rugby match.
