Mangan Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Mangan Family History


Mangan Family History


The ancient origin of the name Mangan was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. The normal form of the name Mangan in Irish is O'Mongain, which is more phonetically anglicized as Mongan in parts of Connacht. In Mayo, the original homeland of one of the Septs so called, it is more usually Mangan nowadays. The Munster Mangans, originally of County Cork, are now found more in County Limerick. The Munster Mangans have been long enough established in County Limerick to have a townland called after them in the parish of Dromcolliher, namely Ballymongane. This is also the name of a townland in the parish of Kilnamona in County Clare. The Ulster Sept, which, as erenaghs of St. Caireall, gave its name to the parish of Termonomongan in County Tyrone, appears to be now almost extinct. Three brothers named Warburton who assumed the name Mongan, 1810-1894, were of sufficient importance to be included in Crone's Dictionary of Irish Biography.The Mangan 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 Mangan descendants.
