The Connor Coat Of Arms Story

Read the intriguing transcription of the text illustrated on the Connor family history parchment:

This name, O’ Conchobhair in Gaelic ranks among the five most prominent in Ireland. Originally it belonged to six distinct Septs, four of which still survive in great numbers. The most influential of these was the O’ Connor Sept of Connaught, which was descended from Conchobhar, King of Connaught in the mid-tenth century. This family produced the last two Kings of an Ireland, namely Turlough O’ Connor and his son Rory, both men had to contend with fierce warring factions at home and during his kingship, Rory was forced to submit to a relentless wave of Anglo- Norman invasions in 1179 which were to utterly change the face of Ireland. Later descendants of this sept included several prominent scholars and authors: Matthew, born in 1773, who wrote the ‘history of the Irish Catholics; and Charles Owen O’ Connor who was President of the Royal Irish Academy at the end of the nineteenth century. Another important O’ Connor sept, whose chief O’ Connor Kerry resided at Carrigafoyle Castle, held sway over extensive territories in North Kerry. This sept produced eminent commanders for the Irish brigades in France, and three prominent nineteenth century Irish- Americans: brothers Michael and James, who became United States bishops, and Patrick Edward Connor, a frontiersman, Indian fighter and confederate soldier. Two other groups bearing this name are the O’ Connors of Corcomoroe in North Clare, and the O’ Connors of Offlay, who trace their origins back to Cathaoir Mor, a second century King of Ireland. This sept was constantly at war, and finally dispossessed of most of its lands in the sixteenth century. A fifth sept, the O’ Connors of Glengiven, were descended from a third century King of Munster, Clan, son of Oilioll Olum. The prefix ‘O’ disappeared in the period of Gaelic suppression and, in some cases of the name, it has not been revived; hence today the name can be seen as O’ Connor, O’ Conor, Connor and Conner.
