About the surname of Young
Clifford Anthony & Newton Richard names are changed to Young,
for unknown reason. Earl Young first & the only time in any records 3
Sep 1930 my Fathers School Records as guardian i, no mention of his
biological father Clifford Franklin Young, and Thelma is not listed as his
mother rather a Mrs. E. Rose, unknown who this person is or why.
My father attended many schools in the Los Angeles School District from
3 Sep 1930 - 30 Jan 1942,
Looking for any information regarding my father, Richard Newton Young (Newton Richard Begnal),
uncle Clifford Anthony Young (Clifford Anthony Begnal), Earl Young (unknown
any other info other than he is stated on my father's school records), to view home addresses during this period and
schools my father attended. Maybe someone attended school with Richard or Clifford
Begnal as Young, or lived near them as neighbors and know about this family, Thelma, Earl, etc. between 1930-1942

Information and Links about the Surname Begnal vs. Bagnal
The following is some of which I have found on the internet in my quest to find the origin of my surname Begnal, searching records and I wish to share these surnames and links of those who have spent the time & research in putting together the following.
Michael S. Begnal writes: Begnal, comes from the Gaelic name O'Beigleighinn, which also gives the surname Beglin, Beglan etc. (see The Surnames of Ireland by Edward MacLysaght
). It is easy to confuse these names due to the similarities and the many similar variants, but we must keep in mind that Beglin (Begnal) and Bagenal (Bagnall, etc.) are quite distinCT The former originally being a native and ancient Gaelic medical family, the latter arriving in the 16th century as part of the English security apparatus. MacLysaght is quite clear about this in his "More Irish Families". While the Bagenal's did eventually become Irish-ized, I think it is important to recognize the difference between the two surnames, which despite their similarities in orthography, are vastly different in origin and not at all related.
Spellings encountered of Begnal - Begnall, Begnol, Beganl, Beganll, Begnel, Begnell, Begnil, Begnill, Bignal, Bignall, Bignel, Bignell, Beigleghan and O'Beigleighinn
My sincere appreciation, Doc
Bagnall began around William the Conqueror's English invasion with variations like Bagenhall, Bagenal, de Bagenal, and settled in Staffordshire. In the 16th century Sir Nicholas Bagnall was sent by Queen Elizabeth, to head a constabulary in Ireland [Newry] and the Irish family grew from that.
