The Fallon ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives.

Surnames developed a wide number of variants over the centuries. Many different spelling variations of the same name can be traced back to a single original root. Also, when a bearer of a name emigrated from Ireland it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books upon arrival at their new location. Some names have dozens of spelling variations. Some Surnames were also altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically, by their sound, and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another. This was especially so in Ireland where most Gaelic names were 'anglicized' at some stage.

Variants of the name Fallon include Falloon and O'Fallon. This Irish name is associated with Counties Galway and Roscommon, the head of the sept of the Ui Maine being Chief of a territory comprising the present parishes of Camma and Dysart in the barony of Athlone, County Roscommon. In 1585 the Chief was resident in the parish of Dysart where the ruins of the castle are still to be seen, and nearby another branch of the family until quite recently owned estates in the Ballinasloe area. They were the direct descendants of the 'Chiefs of O'Fallon's Country'. In pre-Norman times there was a sept of O'Fallon in Meath, but they were soon dispersed after the invasion.The Fallon family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Fallon descendants.
