McGonnell Coat of Arms, Family Crest and McGonnell Family History


McGonnell Family History


The names McGonnell and McConnell in Ireland are often of Scottish origin but can also be derived from the native Gaelic MacDhomhnaill Sept which literally translates as 'Son of Daniel'. These names are mostly found in the Province of Ulster and especially in Counties Antrim, Down and Tyrone.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
