Bones, Bownes—Father Wolfe gives the Gaelic respectively of these names as Mac Cnáimh and Mac Cnamhaigh, in Co. Mayo. Bone is found widely distributed from the banks of the Clyde, in Scotland, to Land's End, in Cornwall, and the name is of undoubted Picto-Cymric origin, and found as I said, and mostly confined to the western districts of Britain.
