Early Origins of the Magnos family
The surname Magnos was first found in Shetland
where they held a family seat
in their territories in the Orkneys. The Viking influence of northern Scotland
developed as a stepping stone to Iceland from Scandinavia. Many Viking expeditions were started from the Orkneys and the northern tip. Rollo, first Duke of Normandy
, started his conquest of that part of France as an expeditionary from here. Hugo Magnus was found at 1114. CITATION[CLOSE]
