The family history of the ancient name Faulkner was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'the falconer' this is an occupational name. Variants include Falcon, Falken, Falkner and Faulkoner. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Richard le Fauconer, Huntshire, and a Walter le Fauconer, who were recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273 and a Geoffrey Fauconer who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire in the year 1379. In Ireland Faulkner is most often found in Ulster Province having been introduced there during the seventeenth century. The variants Falkiner and Faughnan can also be found. It can also be a synonym of Fealy and Falvey in County Kerry, and is sometimes used instead of Faulkney in County Mayo. The Gaelic O'Fachtnain Sept of Counties Leitrim and Longford anglicized their name as Faulkner as well as Faughnan.The Faulkner 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 Faulkner descendants.
