Any other Trims out there??

Hey guys,

My last name is Trim and I learnt over the christmas break I was from Ireland. I don't know much about my grandparents and great grandparenets....maybe you guys could give me some insight on where my name originated and if there are any more Trims over there. I'm just really interested in where my blood came from.

Anyways, taker easy...

-Ryan from Canada. Eh!

You may have noticed that my last name has a second 'M'. My paternal great-grandfather added the extra 'M' to his name, not sure why. My uncle did a geneology of the Trimm family and we hailed back from Trim Ireland many generations ago. There are numerous Trimm's found in the southeast part of the United States (where my ancestors emigrated to). I, myself lived in the state of Florida for a good while but now reside in the Pacific Northwest portion of the U.S. Interestingly, the weather in the Pacific Northwest is much like that in Ireland, probably why I like it out here.

Re: Any other Trims out there??

we were dbl m but my grandfather dropped one when he emigrated to australia i have been told that the mm is a female descendant and one m being the male
or the other way around cant quite remember i have had my history traced and have put away somewhere i will have to find it

Hello Ryan,
My maiden name is Trim. I am from Mississippi, USA. There are several of "us" here. Our family has been traced back to two brothers who came over from Ireland in the late 1700s.
I hope to make a trip to Ireland someday. I've heard it's beautiful!

Re: Any other Trims out there??

my maiden name is Trimm, and my ancestral Irish name was de Lacey before my ancestors moved to America and had to change it (back in the 1800's). back then (during the famine), the influx to America of Irish families was so great (and also anti-Irish sentiments in areas of the country), the government required many Irish families to "Americanize" their names. so, in my family's case, de Lacey became Trim, and then a few generations down the line, became Trimm. why the extra "m"? who knows for sure, but I think most likely it was a mis-spelling on a birth certificate that never got corrected.

anyway, would love to hear from any de Laceys still living in Trim. I know we'd be cousins god-knows-how-many times removed, but it would still be interesting. (and I'd get a one-up on my little sister, who is VERY proud of her Irish heritage.......the whole family is proud, but she takes the cake!)

Re: Any other Trims out there??

oh, and one more thing.........there's a Trim(m) geneology page at this address:

might see a few names you recognize there, but there hasn't been a whole lot of activity on that page recently. but who knows what you'll find until you try it, right?

take care!
