Joyce Irish Clan Name Mini-Book Excerpt
"A particularly notorious bearer of the Joyce name was William Joyce, born in New York in 1906 to an Irish father and an English mother. The family returned to Galway, in Ireland, in Joyce’s childhood, and later to England, where Joyce joined the British Union of Fascists in 1932.
On the outbreak of war, facing arrest and detention as a Nazi sympathiser, he and his wife fled to Germany and he became a radio propagandist for Germany’s English service.
Dubbed Lord Haw-Haw by his mocking British listeners, he was captured after the war and, found guilty of treason, hanged in 1946."
